We can successfully resist sicknesses and diseases because we know and believe that our heavenly Father is for us and against sicknesses and diseases.
It is evident in scriptures and in the physical earthly walk of Christ Jesus that God wants us to live in good health.
One third of Jesus’s activities was the healing of the sick (Acts 10:38). Moreover, He himself was never reported to be sick, a perfect example of how we are supposed to live on earth as children of God.
God is never the author of sicknesses and diseases. How can He be behind sicknesses and diseases yet He makes available to us the gifts of healings and the working of miracles? (1 Cor. 12:7-11).
Jesus said one of the signs that shall follow believers in Him shall be the laying on of their hands on the sick in His name and they shall recover (Mark 16:17-18)
In addition, we are instructed to call for the Elders of the Church for the prayer of faith to heal the sick (James 5:14-15).
Apart from the spiritual gifts for healings, God has also given people ability to use natural resources to produce medicine to heal diverse kinds of sicknesses. On a daily basis we see the advancement and discoveries in medical sciences. This is the mercy and grace of God at work to save man from the distraction and nuisance of ill health.
Therefore, we can successfully resist sicknesses and diseases because we know and believe that our heavenly Father is for us and against sicknesses and diseases.
In the name of Jesus we speak to every sick body, be healed!
