Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional January 20th – Speak Healthy Words

(Keep Your Body In Check With Your Words)

TO THE BIBLE: Romans 8:11
“…If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”

Stacie, a Christian who had received the Holy Spirit, unwittingly picked up on the unpleasant language of her friends at school: she would say some rather unwholesome things about herself whenever she was in their company, thinking that such talk would bring her some form of validation: “I nearly died when I heard that song,” “That joke tickled me to death,” “I’m dying of boredom,” and the like. She didn’t realise that talking that way was why she was always in one sickness after the other.

When you’re born again, you’ve got a new life and you ought to talk like it! That life affects your whole spirit, soul and body.

Our opening verse says if the Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, that same Spirit shall vitalise (make alive) your mortal body.

This already happened because the Spirit lives in you now. Like Stacie, many aren’t experiencing this reality of the Word of God in their lives because they’re not talking and acting on the Word.

If you don’t understand this truth, you’ll be subject to the elements of this world, dominated by headaches, fever, diabetes and all manner of sickness and disease.

Don’t go through what spiritual slaves go through; come to a place in your life where you say, “Enough is enough; I refuse to be sick.”

Learn to talk the Word and exercise authority over your body. If you can’t exercise authority over your body, how are you going to exercise it over cities and nations? Your body is the first place to practise authority.

If you feel the symptoms of sickness in your body, say, “No! A thousand times no! I’ve got the Spirit of God in me! I’ve got the life of God in me! I’ve got the strength of God in me, from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet! I’m healthy and sound! My body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, and no sickness, disease or infirmity can thrive therein! Hallelujah!”

You can mend your heart, lungs, kidneys, and every other part of you! Talk to your skin, your bones, your blood, and keep them in health. Glory to God!

Proverbs 4:20-22 NIV; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 3 John 1:2

My body is the temple of the Holy Ghost; I refuse to allow anything dominate me. I subject my body to God’s Word! Anything that’s not consistent with the Word of God for my life isn’t permitted in my body! I walk in divine health continually. Glory to God!
