Isaiah 53:5 But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.

A lot of us use this scripture when we’re dealing with sickness, disease, or physical pain in our bodies. That’s great, but this scripture can also be applied to emotional wounds that haven’t healed.

This scripture can be applied to the pain a person experiences during a divorce, death of a loved one, abandonment from our parents, rejection, or abuse.

This scripture works the same for emotional pain as it does physical pain. When that emotional pain comes in our minds, we must literally open our mouths and say, “by His wounds, I’m healed of (whatever emotional pain)” We’ll also have to say, “I receive the peace and joy of God in exchange for this pain, in Jesus name.” We’ll say this multiple times until the pain is removed.

Praise God for the sacrifice of Jesus that heals us from physical and emotional pain.
