The theme for Pastor Jerry Savelle Daily Devotional for today October 22 2023 is ”GOD HAS PROVIDED HEALING”.
Some people say that God puts sickness and disease on people to teach us something. That is not in the Word! Jesus never said, “I’d sure like to help you, but God told me that He is trying to teach you something.” In fact, the opposite is true. The Word says that when multitudes of people came to Jesus, He had compassion on them and healed them ALL (Matthew 14:14). Acts 10:38 says,”God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil.” Not once did Jesus refuse to heal anybody. When a person said,”Master, I know you can heal me if you will,” He didn’t answer, “I know I can too, but I won’t.”
Look at Mark 16:17-18. It says, “these signs shall follow the believer…They shall lay hands on the sick, and the sick shall recover.” In Exodus 15:26 it says: “I am the Lord that healeth thee.” If you’ll read Psalm 103:2-5, you’ll see that it says He forgives our inquities and heals all of our diseases.
When Jesus died at Calvary, we see Him doing what Isaiah said He would: bearing our sin, our sickness, and our diseases. Jesus became a curse for us. He bore every sickness and disease listed in Deuteronomy 28. After naming all kinds of sicknesses and diseases, it says, “Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law” (Deuteronomy 28:61). From the common cold to cancer – every sickness is under the curse. And, we have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb!
God wants you to receive your healing. He doesn’t care whether you go to the physician or to the minister as long as you put His Word first place in your life. According to Proverbs 4:22, the Word is health to your flesh. Begin to put the Word in your heart, confess it, and allow it to be medicine to your flesh.
Jesus Christ is the High Priest of our confession, and He will back His Word. Your symptoms may tell you that you are sick, but God says that you are healed.
Aren’t you glad God doesn’t want you sick? Today, be thankful for God’s provision for healing.
Confession: Thank you Father for providing my healing at Calvary. Health and healing are mine because You have redeemed me from the curse of the law.
