(Divine Health Is Yours In Christ)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. (3 John 2)
“I feel under the weather today,” “I think I’m going to be sick,” and “I’m afraid I’m getting the flu,” are some statements you’ll find among some Christians today. They think it’s cool and normal to talk about sickness in this manner, but it isn’t!
God doesn’t talk that way and His greatest desire for His children is that each one of them prospers and lives in health (3 John 2). He wants you to live in divine health and not merely be healed from time to time. When you live in divine health, you don’t need healing since you don’t get sick. The Bible says, “And no inhabitant [of Zion] will say I am sick…” (Isaiah 33:24 AMPC). Zion is the city of the living God and you were born there the moment you were born again (Hebrews 12:22-23).
The reason the citizens of Zion won’t say they are sick isn’t that they’re avoiding the wrong confessions; rather, it’s because they don’t get sick! They are not “sick-able!” They’re the possessors of the “Zoe” life—the divine life of Almighty God—and that life destroys sickness, repels disease, and annuls infirmity. Someone says, “But what if I feel sick?” “Can’t I say how I feel?” No, you’re not to say how you feel, but what God’s Word says about you. We live by faith, not by sensory perception (2 Corinthians 5:7).
You need to know that the presence of symptoms is not proof of sickness. Therefore, the symptoms shouldn’t change your confession that divine health is yours in the now. Eradicate all sickness talk from your vocabulary completely!
Go Deeper: Isaiah 58:8; 1 Peter 2:24
Speak: I’m a new creation in Christ Jesus, born in Zion, where sickness can’t have any foothold on me. The life of God inundates every fibre of my being, making me impregnable to sickness and disease. From the crown of my head to the soles of my feet, eternal life gains the mastery! I walk in divine health every day because my body is the temple of the Holy Ghost.
