When you were saved you were healed
Do you believe that it was God’s will to save you? Do you believe that because you are saved this glorifies God?
Well it was his will to save you and your new life in Christ Jesus glorifies him!
Spiritually speaking sin is a “sickness”, it is a “disease” that results in death, decay and judgment. When you came to Christ not only were you saved from God’s wrath but from the consequences of sin—you were spiritually healed.
The same is true for your physical healing. All the provisions were made through Jesus on the cross (Isaiah 53:5). And you are to glorify God with your new spiritual life and your new body (1 Cor. 6:20). How can you glorify God with a sinful life? How can you glorify him with a sick or diseased body?
John prayed that we would prosper and be in good health even as our souls prosper (3 John 1:2). The two are tied together.
It is time to declare war on every form of illness and disease and take full authority over every form of demonic power in the name of Jesus. For when you were saved healing was part of the package. Why settle for part when God wants you to be whole?
