Topic: What to do to Stay Healthy
[Seeds of Destiny 2 February 2019 Devotional]
SCRIPTURE: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. Matthew 8:17
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your revelation determines your possession.
Yesterday, we saw the need to understand our Divine heritage in God; we saw amongst other things that Divine Health is the heritage of God’s children. This is very important because until you know what is yours in God, you can easily become a victim of the negative circumstances of this world.
Now, the important question is, how do you activate the force of Divine health? In other words, what do you do to stay healthy?
Possess the scriptural light regarding your heritage of health!
Beloved, in order to stay healthy in life, it is very important to possess the light or revelation of God’s Word regarding your heritage of Divine health (Isaiah 60:1). Possessing this light is important because your revelation determines your possession.
Let me give you a practical example: one day, Papa Bishop Oyedepo saw one light in Matthew 8:17 where the Bible says,‘…Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.’ He said that when he read that verse, the Holy Ghost made the word ‘took’ to stand out. He understood by revelation that God has already taken away every sickness in his body on the Cross of Calvary even before he was born and so, the sickness cannot be there. This means, what has been taken cannot be untaken.
Beloved, what a vital lesson of life! Believing that sickness has already been taken from your life on the Cross of Calvary is a major key to staying healthy (Matthew 8:17). What has already been taken cannot be there. Let this light dwell in you; this is one secret of living in abundant health.
Remember this: Your revelation determines your possession.
1.Meditate on our Anchor Scripture.
2.Believe that Jesus has taken away all sicknesses on the Cross and what has been taken cannot be untaken.
PRAYER: O Lord, thank You for Your provision in keeping me in a state of perfect health. I believe that I am healed from every sickness and disease on the Cross of Calvary Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
