God Is No Respecter of Persons
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons. — ACTS 10:34
There are many methods of healing. For example, you can be healed by prayer (James 5:14–15), and you can also be healed by the laying on of hands (Mark 16:18). These are just two Bible methods of receiving healing.
But you can also be healed by believing Isaiah 53:4 and 5, Matthew 8:17, and First Peter 2:24 without anyone praying for you—just by acting on these verses yourself. In fact, that’s really the best way, because after you are healed, you can then go out and tell someone how you were healed, and they can receive their healing the same way you did. Healing belongs to every one of us.
Some people say, “Well, that just means spiritual healing; the Scripture isn’t talking about physical healing.” I shared First Peter 2:24 with a woman in Oklahoma who was crippled. The doctors in Oklahoma City had said, “She’ll never walk another step the longest day she lives.” And she had been in a wheelchair for four years.
Now I wasn’t operating in the gifts of the Spirit at the time I gave her that verse. I just gave her First Peter 2:24 and got her to act upon it. And as God is my witness, hundreds of people saw her leap and walk and jump! First Peter 2:24 will also work for you, just as it did for that woman. God is no respecter of persons.
Confession: According to the Word of God, I’m healed. It is written in First Peter 2:24, “By whose stripes, ye were healed.” If we were, then I am. I am healed!
