But 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

Romans 8:11

I could use scriptures to arrange what God wants us to know today, but let me put them in simple words. The Spirit that God has given us in the Divine nature is not an ordinary extension of Himself in us. The Holy Spirit is not just God’s presence in us nor our Teacher, Comforter or guide alone. He is the presence of eternal life (the God-life that isn’t subject to anything) in us. Do you know what this means?

See how the Bible calls the Spirit of God (the same One in you and I): II Corinthians 3:6, “who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”

John 6:63
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”

In the above scriptures I want to point out a beautiful context : if you and I have been given the Original Spirit of Life Himself indwelling us because we are children of God, then is it possible that sickness, an element of death, will find expression in us? Ponder on this for a moment.

I don’t know where you’ve been all this while or even right now. Maybe we are going through a health challenge and the enemy is trying to convince us that it’s a normal medical issue. Well, if it isn’t life, then it’s not from God. And if it’s not from God, then it is from the devil and therefore aims to destroy me. Whatever is from Satan is to destroy me, so I am not to entertain it.

So when next you quote 1Peter 2:24 and Isaiah 53 over your health, this should run through your mind: I carry the life giving Spirit inside me, therefore, His power and life flows into every tissue, cells, organ or system to neutralize every element of sickness and infirmity now, in Jesus name, amen, because life and death can’t coexist.

Now, if you can stand on this long enough, it will change your thinking pattern first, then it will change your life next. And when next you’ll feel any infirmity, drugs wouldn’t be the first thing that comes to your mind. Rather, the death neutralizer (the Life giving Spirit) will be, and then you will engage Him in the name of Jesus, appropriating your healthiness persistently.

It’s not your business to know how the Holy Spirit appropriates healing in your body. Sickness and health are first spiritual before physical. So, He deals with it from the source first, then connects to your corresponding faith in the physical (your ability to do what you couldn’t do before and expect not to see the pain or sickness there again. This is your corresponding action of faith). He respects our deep sense of confidence in His ability based on what we have seen and caught from His Word.

My main point today: you have The very Spirit of Life in you, therefore you are not expected to be sick or be under any form of life-threatening infirmity. Rather, in that Spirit, expect and engage Him to give life to every part of your body. Do this today by faith in Jesus name through which you claim your inheritance in this Kingdom.

Sickness and death will not reign over you again in the name of Jesus. Rather, you’ll go out giving this life to the dead and healing the sick you meet, in Jesus name, amen.- Mark 16:17-18
