“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” Genesis 2:7
The simple truth here is this – God is the One who made your body, therefore God is certainly capable of fixing your body! God’s design of the human body is amazing! Even today, with all of the advances in science and medical technology, there is still much that we do not understand about the human body. It is very complex. In Psalm 139:14 the Psalmist declared, “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
For one thing, when God formed our physical bodies He put within it an amazing ability to heal itself. What more proof do we need than this to believe that it is God’s will for us to be healed? After all, if sickness was a part of God’s plan for mankind, then why would He design our bodies to fight and resist sickness?
As a matter of fact, Adam and Eve’s body were created to live forever. Physical death was not a part of God’s original plan. It was only after sin entered into the world that man’s physical body began to break down over time and grow old and eventually succumb to death.
However, because God created man’s body so perfectly, it took many generations for man’s life span to become what it is today. Even after sin, Adam lived to be over 900 years old. This is the reason we read that so many people lived over seven hundred, eight hundred and even nine hundred years in those days. It took several generations for sin to have its full affect on the human body.
Thank God for Jesus! Because of His redemptive work on the cross of Calvary, the problem with sin has been erased. Today, those who are in Christ Jesus are free from the power of sickness and disease.
CONFESSION: Sickness doesn’t belong in my body. God’s plan for me is to be healthy and that I live a long life. I have been redeemed from sickness and disease!
