THOUGHTS FOR YOUR DAY.

Matthew 9:1-8 (NASB)
1 Getting into a boat, Jesus crossed over the sea and came to His own city.
2 And they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralytic, "Take courage, son; your sins are forgiven."
3 And some of the scribes said to themselves, "This fellow blasphemes."
4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, "Why are you thinking evil in your hearts?
5 "Which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up, and walk'?
6 "But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins"—then He *said to the paralytic, "Get up, pick up your bed and go home."
7 And he got up and went home.
8 But when the crowds saw this, they were awestruck, and glorified God, who had given such authority to men.
1 Peter 2:24 (NASB)
24 and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.
Isaiah 53:4-5 (NASB)
4 Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.
Sin and sickness were both dealt with through the sacrifice of Jesus.
God laid on him our sin and our sicknesses and disease.
What God has joined together let no one put asunder.
Healing for our bodies is just as much part of the Gospel as the forgiveness of our sin. Thank You Lord!
Sickness and disease have no more right to dominate our lives than sin.
The power of both are broken by the Blood of Jesus and the stripes He bore.
We can resist both sin and sickness successfully as we submit to God and agree with His Word.
He sent His Word to heal us and His Word does not, will not and has not returned to Him void.
He has and will continue to heal us and deliver us from our destructions.
Agree with Him and declare what He says.
