You Can Live Above Sickness

He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered [them] from their destructions (Psalm 107:20).

The human body was formed by God in a way that nothing could harm it. Man was made to live long and free of sickness, disease or anything that hurts. However, Adam's fall introduced death into the fabric of everything in the world. "Death" doesn't only imply the cessation of life; it also means "to fail," "to be damaged" and to "fade away."

Thus Adam's fall introduced failure and damage to the world. Man, who was created in God's image, could now fall sick. His heart, blood, liver, kidney etc., could now fail. When Jesus came however, He defeated the devil and his cohorts and seized the keys of hell and death.

The Bible says in 1 John 3:8, "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." After He destroyed the hold of sin and death over your life, He then declared, "...sin shall not have dominion over you"(Romans 6:14)! Meaning therefore that sin and all its negative effects such as sickness, failure, poverty, and death ought not to have any power over you.

The Lord Jesus has given us the victory over the enemy. The reason some folks are still living in bondage to the devil is lack of knowledge. God said "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6). Refuse to be in bondage to sickness, disease or the devil. You can change that negative situation by stirring up the power of the Holy Ghost in you. The more of the power of the Holy Ghost you stir up by speaking in other tongues, the less of the things of this world that will be able to manifest in your life.

My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, I live above sickness, disease, infirmity and death. I have the life of God in me; my life is for the glory of God. I'm a victor in Christ Jesus; no weapon fashioned against me shall prosper.
