When I first got saved, we sang a song based on Isa. 51:11:
Isaiah 51:11 (KJV) 11 Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.
But, as I recall, I didn’t even know what all that meant. What did it mean to be redeemed? And what was I redeemed from? Well, eventually, I found out what I was redeemed from and that I was actually redeemed to something. Let me explain.
Galatians 3:13 (KJV) 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
Just what did it mean that Jesus redeemed me from the curse of the law? It meant that I was redeemed from sin, sickness, poverty, and spiritual death. Wow! What a revelation that was to find out that my sins were forever remitted – washed away, that I didn’t have to be sick anymore, that I didn’t have to be poor, and that I didn’t have to die spiritually, never to be separated from God again, throughout all eternity!
And, just like the commercial says, “But, wait – there’s more!” Not only was I redeemed from all those bad things – Deut. 28:15-68, I also was also redeemed to the blessings of God – the blessings of Abraham as listed in Deut. 28:1-14.
The point I want to make is that when we get saved, we are then redeemed from all the curses of the law and eligible for all the blessings! Wow! Can it get any better than that!
Knowing that we are redeemed from sickness and disease puts us in a place to receive healing from God. Sickness is a curse. God doesn’t get any glory from you being sick. That’s a lie from the pit of hell to malign God’s integrity.
When you truly grasp that you don’t have to be sick because you’re redeemed from the curse, it’ll be easy to receive your healing because it has already been bought and paid for by the Lord Jesus! Go for it!

19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
