Faith Is Based on Bible Facts, Not Theories
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. — 1 PETER 2:24
Faith is built on fact, not theory. A fact is a conclusion deduced from evidence. (My definition of a theory is a supposition established on ignorance of the subject under discussion!) Faith is based on the facts of God’s Word, but theory about God’s Word is based on suppositions.
It is a Bible fact that by Jesus’ stripes, we were healed (1 Peter 2:24). It is a Bible fact that surely He has borne our sicknesses and carried our pains (Isa. 53:4). It is a Bible fact that Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses (Matt. 8:17). These are Bible facts, not theories.
Start believing these facts—even while you still have the symptoms. Although your body may be telling you that you are not healed, continue to believe the facts of God’s Word. I know it works. It has worked for me.
Confession: I believe the facts of God’s Word. I believe that by Jesus’ stripes, I am healed. I am not going to be healed, because I am healed now.
