But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5 NIV)
So many of us are held down by sickness and bondage that satan says we can't get rid of. When I was only 12 years old I was diagnosed with depression, which I carried into my early twenties and multiplied to other sickness that had my life crippled. My life revolved around my medication schedule. It wasn't until I started attending AwakeningLife that I realized there was such thing as healing. I knew God was more than capable of healing, but I didn't know He would do it for me. I thought depression and other horrible sickness like that was just something certain people had to deal with. I was reading my bible one night when I came across Isaiah 53:5 and it hit me... He took the punishment so we wouldn't have to. I had the most amazing revelation from God that night. I later prayed with Pastor Anthony and his wife, Mary and God COMPLETELY healed me. It took me only a week to be weaned off all medications and have been medication free for 3 years now. God is so good!!!
“Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. (Romans 4:7 NIV)
Have you ever went to lunch with a friend and they grab the ticket and say, "No, I have this covered."? In Romans it says Jesus did that with our sins. They are completely covered, forgiven and forgotten, so there is no need to live in any kind of punishment. Our God is SO much bigger than any sickness.
