Your healing today is secured by Gods covenant with you! In the bible, especially in the old testament (or covenant), we read about a number of covenants that were cut between two people, two nations and between God and man. However, the most significant old testament covenant, also referred to in the new covenant, is the one God made with Abraham promising him that he would have a child of his own, as many descendants as the stars in the sky and also inherit the land. Abraham asked God, “how shall I know that I will inherit it?” and in response God cut covenant with him.
Abraham understood the significance of a blood covenant, it could not be broken, and it was the most solemn, most sacred and most enduring of all agreements. God knew this and He chose blood covenant to reassure and settle the matter of His willingness, power and ability to perform His word to Abraham. Covenant means something strong, securing our hearts in the promises made by God to us and it acts as a final confirmation to us that what God says, He will do. The Lord said in Psalm 89:34, “My covenant I will not break, nor will I alter the word that has gone from my lips.”
You and I today are living under a new and better blood covenant established on better promises (Hebrews 8:6). A new covenant that is sealed, ratified, approved and signed with the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. The foundation of this new covenant cannot be more secure, and its promises (all the words contained in it) cannot be surer.
Jesus was the sacrificial lamb for this new covenant and unlike animals of old, He lives today, He lives in heaven and He is making intercession always on our behalf because His blood was poured out for us (Hebrews 7:25). He is called the Mediator of the new covenant, the one who has intervened between man and God to restore peace and ratify this covenant.
In 2 Corinthians 1:20 the bible says, ‘For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.’ One of those promises is in Matthew 8:17 talking about Jesus and saying, ‘He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses.’ Another promise in 1 Peter 2:24 says, ‘who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.’
You may be asking, “How shall I know that healing belongs to me?” especially if you are experiencing sickness in your body today. I want you to remember Gods response to Abraham knowing that God Almighty has cut covenant with you through the flesh and the blood of His son Jesus Christ. You see when God made promise to Abraham, he had not inherited any land, he had no child and no hope of descendants. But Abraham believed God (despite this) and the bible says his belief was credited to him as right by God.
So today, you need to believe God’s new covenant promises on healing with your heart like he did and confess it with your mouth until it is fulfilled. It belongs to you and yes you must fight a good fight of faith by believing and knowing that God does not break His covenant. You are in covenant with God and that is an awesome place to be as a Christian.
Prayer: I thank you Lord for the new covenant sealed and signed in the blood of Jesus. I know the covenant was cut for me by Jesus and today I hold fast to that covenant declaring that I am healed by the stripes of Jesus who bore all my infirmities and carried all my sicknesses. I believe this with my heart because your word says so and I thank you every day for healing me in Jesus Name. I am in covenant with you, thank you Lord!
