How are you feeling today? I am praying for you to be healed if you are sick, but I am also praying something better: for you never to be sick, to walk in divine health.
Divine healing is one of God’s biggest blessings. When I was growing up and would get sick, my family would pray, and I would be healed. If it was Sunday, I went to church and got healed, so I wouldn’t miss school the next day. Divine healing was part of our lifestyle.
When I got older, I was hit with a divine healing bombshell. I heard Kenneth E. Hagin teach about divine health. He said, “I haven’t had an aspirin since 1958.” I thought, Liar! I really didn’t believe this. I had never heard that God wanted to keep me in health, so that I didn’t get sick.
Brother Hagin taught on 3 John 2: Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. The Holy Spirit is revealing to us that when our soul prospers (our thoughts, speech, and actions line up with God’s Word and we walk in the Spirit) we will prosper in all areas of our lives and be in health. We will not be sick!
Since I gained that revelation and began to walk in it, I have had fewer and fewer sick days. I remembered John G. Lake. During the plague in South Africa, he tended to the sick and carried away the dead, yet he never got sick. When doctors asked why he was immune, he said, The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2). He knew that the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lived in him and imparted life to every cell in his body (Romans 8:11)!
I encourage you to meditate on verses like Exodus 23:25, Proverbs 4:20-22, and 3 John 2, which talk about divine health. As you “eat” God’s divine words and obey the Holy Spirit, you will enjoy divine health from your Father, who loves you. Then you will have His strength to help others and fulfill everything God asks you to do.
