Art of Living #48

Healing and Health is Our Inheritance

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #48 : "For I am the LORD who heals you." (Exodus 15:26).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : Our God is a healing God. His very nature is to heal and keep His children in good health. Think about it saints, If God has promised to be the healer to the people who were part of the Old Covenant which was faulty, how much more God will heal all of us who have become His children's through His perfect New Covenant made through Jesus Christ our Lord (Heb 8:7)! The new covenant is called as "better covenant" with "beter promises" (Heb 8:6). If we ask the question, in what way it is better? It is better in every way compared to the Old Covenant made through Moses. The law instructed people like a school master, but it never gave the power to overcome sin, sickness and death. But the new covenant is a perfect one because not only Jesus speaks and commands to us through the Holy Spirit, but also he gives us the power to keep the commandments through the Holy Spirit.

The healing we can expect in the New Covenant is not just physical but it is better given as a holistic package of salvation and healing in all areas of our lives. In other words, God will for us in the new covenant is that we should spiritually prosper and as a result of it our soul, body, financial and social arenas of our lives should prosper. Apostle John agrees with this statement and says, "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers." (3 John 1:2). But believers have been living in unbelief thinking that God can only do spiritual things and may not do the same in other areas of our lives. This is a deception of Satan that has made the curses of heathens to come and reign in the lives of many believers. God will not be pleased to bless anybody anyother way other than His ordained way of living by faith.

So how should we respond? We should believe that God not only makes us spiritually prosperous which is the highest level of all blessings, but he is equally interested to bless us in all other areas of our lives. When God blessed Abraham he became wealthy and not only that, he became prosperous in all other areas of his life of which the top most thing He got is the spiritual blessing of God's promise to bless the nations through him in the future (Gen 24:35; 12:3). The New Covenant promises makes all the Old Covenant promises to be "Yes and Amen" and along with it, there is the highest spiritual blessing of God that God has already given to us through our Lord Jesus Christ to overcome sin and death in our lives (2 Cor 1:20; Eph 1:3). Hence God has promised to heal us and also keep us in health to do His will until the end of our lives (Psa 91:16, 118:17). God has promised to bless our food that we eat. I have been through spiritual wilderness alone in my life with nobody but God at my side. You know when I ate some simple food that God gave me all those times with thankfulness, God would stimulate my taste buds and amazingly those simple food would taste so great! The same God blessed those simple food in such a way to keep me healthy and strong which I was not able to keep myself eating great nutritional food in the other days of my past. I do not suggest you to take food without nutrition but am only emphasising the greatness of God's blessing upon the food we eat and water we drink. Always take balanced diet and avoid junk foods like coco-cola, pepsi and all kinds of artificial pizzas and Mcfoods. Choose always fresh fruit, vegetables, grains and some meat with it. But above all, HAVE FAITH IN THE BLESSING OF GOD TO BLESS YOUR FOOD AND WATER WHEN YOU ARE IN THE WILL OF GOD. I challenge you that not only you will be healed but also you will be in health to serve the Lord strongly till the end of your life.
