MFM Daily Devotional 20 December 2023 MESSAGE
There are keys that you need to apply to enjoy divine health. Let us examine some of these keys.
The first key is faith. God has graciously provided us with divine health. Jesus earned it for us by His sacrificial death and resurrection. However, you need to exercise your faith to appropriate it.
1 Peter 5:8-9 says, “Be sober, be vigilant: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.” So when you are firm in faith you will enjoy divine health.
The second key is fasting. The physical and spiritual benefits of fasting are numerous and tremendous. Fasting facilitates divine health. Isaiah 58:6-8 affirms this, “Is this not the fast that I have chosen to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? When thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh. Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy reward.” Isaiah 40:31 also underscores the relevance of fasting to divine health.
The third key is diligence. Laziness and idleness engender ill health and sickness. Hard work like physical exercise will help to maintain your health. In 1 Thessalonians, the Bible says. “And ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you. The fourth key is wisdom. Ecclesiastes 7:17 affirms that foolishness can make a man to die before his time. You need wisdom to keep sickness out of your life and to live in divine health. Wisdom is profitable to direct.
We encourage you to apply each of these keys and divine health will be yours, in Jesus’ name.
1. Divine health is my covenant right in Christ; I claim it, in the name of Jesus.
2. Heaven of divine health, open for me now, in the name of Jesus.
3. Any strong man working against my health, die, in the name of Jesus.
4. I receive the wisdom to live perpetually in divine health, in the name of Jesus.
5. I fire back the arrow of infirmity, in the name of Jesus.
6. I break any covenant that does not want me to enjoy divine health, in the name of Jesus.
7. Thou Great Physician, visit me and my family today, in the name of Jesus.
