Like many people, I have experienced some pain in my life. I’ve encountered the nagging garden-variety kind of pain, as well as lingering, enduring pain that no medication can alleviate. There have been times I have been up all night confessing the Word and taking authority over the devil. There have been times when no medical remedy worked, but on every occasion I have experienced the freedom and deliverance promised in God’s Word.
No Way Out
Combatting pain can be a tiring exercise. Some struggle with continuous pain that attempts to destroy the joy of living. Others grow so weary of dealing with pain that they begin to think giving up and dying is the only solution. When it seems there is no way out, and no one knows how we feel, we need to remind ourselves of Isaiah 53:4 (NCV) “But he took our suffering on him and felt our pain for us…” Jesus really does know how we feel. The pain He experienced on the cross is beyond our ability to comprehend, yet He suffered for us willingly, and the result was “But He was wounded for our transgressions,He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” (Isa 53:5 KJV)
The Pain Reliever
There are a number of ways to seek pain relief. There are natural pain relievers and pharmaceutical solutions that may help. They all have their limitations, but I have found a medication that never fails. There is a promise found in Proverbs 4:20-22 which says “My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.” The Hebrew word translated “healing” in this passage can also be translated “medicine”. Jesus is ultimately THE HEALER, and His Word is THE PAIN RELIEVER! When we commit to speaking the Word, we can drive even the most tormenting pain from our bodies, and experience relief, rest, and peace.
Take the medicine of the word of God daily, Take it several times each day. Read it out loud, speak out your confidence in Jesus the Healer, and receive freedom from pain and torment! God made your body, and He knows best how to fix it. JESUS IS YOUR HEALER!
