God has provisions for our health in all areas: spirit, soul and body.
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” 3John2.
SOUL: From the above scripture, it is obvious that our health lies mainly in our soul. The soul of man is that part that thinks, reasons and understands. Our mind is in our soul. You can stop here to consider your way of thinking, and your attitude to issues of life. I hope they are pleasing to God. Since your new birth, have you renewed your mind or are you still thinking like when you were in the kingdom of darkness? It is time you renew your mind. Let your soul be renewed with the word, then your good health will soon show. “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”. Romans12:2. Read also Matthew22:37, 38; Psalm 7:9. God watches your mind always, for that is the seat of your intentions. Love the Lord with your mind and set it on things above.Colssians3:2. Begin to talk, think and do positive things so as to make your soul prosper. Pray, “LORD be merciful to me, Heal my soul for I have sinned against You.” Psalm41:4
BODY: Your body houses the soul and the spirit. Note that sickness and diseases show in the body. Your body is not your property, it belongs to God. Do you treat your body as the temple of the living and true God?
“Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17. If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.”1Corinthians3:16,17. Read 2Corinthians6:16 also. God lives inside you. begin to treat your body with due respect.
The moment you got born again, the Holy Spirit is given to you to dwell in you permanently. What a great priviledge! This is one of the reasons for holy life, because when you grieve the Holy Spirit He simply steps aside.
What you feed your body with is also very important. We read how the partriachs in the Bible lived 120 years, some lived 800 years, some lived 900 years. Their diet contributed to their longevity. God designed two meals a day for mankind, in the days of manna from heaven, and their drink was water. They must have eaten fruits and vegetables in between. Today, we eat so many junk food several times a day and drink anything drinkable. If you watch your diet and take in only nutritious food and drink plenty of water, your health will improve.
SPIRIT: The spirit of man is the life center in man. It is the breath of God inside man. When death occurs, it is the spirit of man that departs and returns to God who gave it. The spirit of man must be constantly fed with the Word of God, so that your lifestyle can be in line with God.
“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God”. Matthew4:4. When eating physical food, ask yourself if you have eaten spiritual food, word of God. When you read your Bible, you are feeding your spirit man. Do not allow worries and sadness to weigh down your spirit. In case these come, turn to your Bible for hope and consolation.
“The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.” Proverbs20:27. God also knows what goes on in your spirit, rule over your spirit so as not to allow any unclean spirit to enter you. Read Proverbs25:28, Proverbs16:32.
WHAT TO DO WHEN SICKNESS COMES: If you are in line with the above and sickness comes, rebuke the symptoms in the name of Jesus. Release the Blood of Jesus against them because Jesus had paid for our sickness on the cross. Find healing scriptures and do Joshua1:8 with them. Read the Gospels according to Mathew and Luke to see the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. Healing is your birthright as an obedient child of God.
DO WARFARE: You must not rule out wicked powers sending sickness to the children of God. All the healing scriptures should take care of them, because the Word is spirit and the word brings life to us. Read John6:63. The wicked will attack severally, so you should go offensive, even before they attack. When you do this, they will learn not to come near you.
1. Father, Let any coven planning sickness for me and my family receive their evil arrows back, sevenfolds, in the name of Jesus.
2. My Father and my God, send me the word that will heal me and deliver me from destruction, in the name of Jesus.
3. LORD God, preserve us from all evil at all times, in the name of Jesus.
4. Lord, make us stronger than our enemies, in the name of Jesus.
5. Father, arise, let not man prevail, judge them and put them in fear that they will know themselves to be but men, in the name of Jesus.
6. In the name of Jesus, I release the Blood of Jesus against every stranger in my body, soul and spirit, and I command them to depart and never come back, in the name of Jesus.
7. Father, heal me and I shall be healed, save me and I shall be saved, for you are my praise, in the name of Jesus.
Sing praises unto God, and thank Him for answered prayer. Glory to God. Jesus is Lord!
