Sound health and wellness: Healing in your Body
Sound health and wellness is a possibility. We need our bodies to be sound, strong, and able to function properly on earth. Unfortunately, this is not what is happening. A large portion of the world’s population suffer from sickness and disease, this includes believers and unbelievers. Where there are sound health and wellness, there is wealth. It’s only one who is healthy that can be productive on earth and enjoy the riches of the world. The body a major area where the enemy specializes in, to steal the sound health God has given believers and replace it with sickness/diseases. It’s our responsibility to put up a fight of faith and quench all the fiery darts of the devil.
Just like the enemy inputs fear in us by bringing the symptoms of what may look like the illness, as believers, we must stair up our faith to work against that symptom by working as one who is fine, hail and hearty till it becomes a reality. The enemy comes in with deceit and fear so that people will actually give in to the symptom but we should always use our superior weapon “Faith” to fight the devil.
In my walk with God, since I saw my right in Redemption that Jesus already took my sickness and bore my disease (Isaiah 53: 4, Matthew 8: 17), and by His stripes, I am already healed (1 Peter 2: 24). I knew that accepting that sickness/ disease was cheating myself because there was no need paying for something that Jesus already paid for and I hate being cheated.
My testimony on sound health and wellness
It’s been over 5 years since I tasted any drug. Now, the first time I had symptoms of sickness, it was not easy to overcome but with my faith in God and His word, I was able to overcome it. From then on, it got really easy. Sometimes I would have to connect heart to heart with God in praise/ worship, sometimes it could be just ignoring the symptoms totally, taking the Anointing oil, Holy communion. Whichever way it came, it never lasted but there was this particular symptom that was always occurring yearly. Sometimes it will take months before leaving. Such a symptom needed special attention and I got the answer when I prayed and fasted. Sound health is a possibility.
The Word of God has already given us key to dealing with stubborn sicknesses/ diseases together with faith, two other things need to be added. Matthew 17: 21 “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting”. This chapter is about how the disciples of Jesus tried casting out demons but this particular one didn’t leave. Then Jesus told them the other things that would need to be done for it to work which are prayer and fasting.
When we engage in prayer and fasting, what happens is, power is generated and since this particular sickness is more stubborn, more power is needed when we generate this power together with our strong faith towards that issue of concern that everlasting mountain will be leveled out. After engaging in the 3 days of fasting and prayer, that was the end of the affliction forever.
Are you going through any terminal condition? Has the Doctor closed your case? Are you going through an issue of long continuance? There is no case that is impossible with God (Matthew 19: 26). He created time, space, earth, the devil, the doctors, etc. The situation/ circumstance has no weight with God, all you need to do is play your part.
Playing your part involves;
It’s important to know Jesus. It is through Him that we can have access to God and our healing. If you are already born again then you will need to confess your sins and live a holy life.
Whatever you don’t want you don’t watch, whatever you don’t resist has the right to remain and whatever you don’t confront, you cannot conquer. The woman with the issue of blood (who would have been weak) was determined to touch the hem of Jesus’s garment and struggled her way to get it done. She believed that once she did it, she would receive her healing and this was the case. This takes me to the next point.
With YOUR faith, you quench all the fiery darts of the enemy. If your faith is low, build it up in the Word of God, read Christian books on healing/ health, listen to christian tapes and start applying it to your life.
Still on sound health and wellness in your body
Hold fast to your confession of Faith
For with the heart, man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10: 10). Salvation means total well being. This means that you not only believe God has healed you in your heart but also keep confessing it until you are made whole. Confession doesn’t just apply to healing but every other area of our lives.
Prayer and Fasting
As earlier discussed, this is where power is generated. Take time out to deal with that sickness using your faith, prayer and fasting. Your result will be obvious to the world.
Thanksgiving and Testimony
Keep praising God for your healing and don’t forget to share your testimony.
Never fear about the sickness or disease coming back
The devil will likely bring the symptoms in the nearest future. Never fear, remember that it has already been conquered, ignore every symptom an move on because you are an overcomer in Christ.
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I come to you today as a sinner, I surrender to you. Forgive me all my sins, wash me clean by your blood, and deliver me from the power of sin and death. I believe that you died for me and on the third day you rose again. I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Come into my heart and be the Lord of my life. Thank you Lord, for delivering me from the power of sin and death. I am delivered, I am saved and now a child of God.
