BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED

This license plate says it all, “HEALED”.
Only God knows the suffering they may have endured in the past but excited to tell the world.

Jesus became our wounded healer who suffered and died on the cross. Isaiah prophesied 700 years prior that Christ would be crucified for the sins of the whole world.

Jesus not only died for our sins, but cared enough to bring healing not just spiritually, but physical healing and emotional healing.
I believe in the power of prayer for miracles and healing. Yes, God is sovereign, and why some people are healed and others are not when it comes to physical healing is in His hands.

We do not have all the answers, but know that the Lord is in control even in the midst of your own suffering. I choose to trust God and believe for the impossible. How about you?
There is divine healing in the atonement (the Cross of Christ).

“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”.
Isaiah 53:5 NKJV

“When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.”
Matthew 8:16‭-‬17 NKJV

In Isaiah “by His stripes we ARE healed. In 1 Peter 2:24, notice: ” by His stripes we WERE healing. The new covenant is past tense, ‘WERE HEALED.’

The greatest miracle is salvation in Christ, but God chooses to bring healing and miracles for us to bring glory to His Name because the God we serve is a supernatural God.

Enjoy your weekend my friend and belive God for the impossible!

Greetings! My name is Andy Provitola and I live in New England on the south shore between Boston and the beautiful Cape Cod region. The purpose of my blogging and writing is to encourage you in your journey here on planet earth. Life is full of pressing issues and problems and my desire is to discover a place for peace, hope, healing, and contentment. I am a follower of Jesus Christ – God’s one and only Son of God and discovered these truths along my own personal journey. Having discovered a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ does not mean I have to be religious to attain the rewards of heaven. The fact is God provides grace for us and accepts us as we are in His image. In other words, we cannot attain heaven or life eternal on our own, but by God’s loving grace and no merit of our own. My goal is to continue to find a balance of life from a spiritual and practical perspective with a purpose to please and glorify God in all that I do because of His ‘Gift of Grace’. God is not transcendent and so far away that he is out of reach with humanity. God desires that His presence lives within us and not just in the galaxies and the universe. Experiencing the unconditional love of God has been so rewarding and while discovering the truth and purpose for my life. Moving forward in this life is not a sprint, but a marathon when it comes to this race here on earth. I am blogging because I find it is a good way to connect in a much more effective and efficient way when it comes to communicating and interacting with with people that I do not know. Blogging and writing challenges me and also stretches me specifically in my thoughts, my mind, my emotions, and my spiritual life to live a vertical relation with God and a horizontal relationship with others. There will be a variety of topics and subjects to address including youth, young adults, family, singles, seniors, relationships, etc. Some of the topics will include God’s creation and power, depression, loneliness, suicide, hope, healing, setbacks, financial matters, business, stress, anxiety, care, encouragement, and so much more I would like to connect with all walks of life, ethnicity, culturally, other religions, socio-economics, and more I am currently writing a book and several memoirs about my own life and journey . The journey begins at a young age growing up in Malden, Massachusetts, specifically Maplewood Square to where I am today. I became paralyzed from the waist down as a senior in high school and I share how my life changed for the better! “But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus. To testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious undeserved] grace [which makes us free of guilt of sin and grants us eternal life]. Acts 20:24 Amplified Version
