Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 1 Peter 2:24 KJV
When you have a fever, when you’re diagnosis is frighteningly negative, it is absolutely necessary that you speak what God’s Word says. You’ve got to take control of your thoughts by speaking.
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV
Jesus already has dealt with sickness and disease! 1 Peter 2:24 simply brings Isaiah’s prophecy to this side of the Cross.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5 KJV
Many are the verses that promise healing from God who is Jehovah Rapha (the God that heals you).
Find them in your Bible, memorize them, and speak them out loud until you’ve got it!
