In God’s original design, Man was not created to be sick. All through the Book of Genesis, sicknesses and diseases are not mentioned even though other challenging situations were recorded.
When man was created, his body was formed from the soil but God released His life-giving spirit into him. Adam’s body did not contain only human life; it also held the life of God.
This God-kind of life is called Zoe – eternal life; the quality of life that flows in God’s being, the power or energy that animates God and determines His intelligence.
The life of a plant is different from that of an animal which is different from the life of a human being.
The life of a human being is also different from the life of God. God’s life is the highest form of life (John 1: 4).
God’s intention was that the same quality of life that flows in Him would flow in man and take him to God’s frequency (Job 32:8).
Therefore, Zoe – eternal life – was in Adam and life is superior to death. It took a long time for the nature of sin to wear down the quality of life in Adam; which is why people lived for hundreds of years.
Sicknesses and diseases were never intended to be a normal part of human existence.
They came as a result of sin and man’s fall. In Exodus, after God moved the children of Israel out of Egypt, one of the first things He dealt with was sickness (Exodus 15: 26).
God introduced Himself to them as their personal physician. As believers, we need to change our thinking and refuse to accept sicknesses and diseases as being normal.
When Jesus was on earth, He always ran illnesses out of people’s bodies. There are no sicknesses in heaven because they are manifestations of death.
We are citizens of God’s kingdom and so we should treat sicknesses as some of mankind’s greatest enemies.
Divine healing and medical science are manifestations of God’s wisdom and power to destroy sicknesses and diseases.
It is important that we recognise this because there is a belief that people who take prescribed drugs or receive medical attention while waiting on God for healing, lack faith. Breakthroughs in medical science did not originate from Satan.
Walking in health, not just receiving healing, should be our target because that is God’s original intention (Proverbs 4: 20-22).
To walk in health, you need to be deliberate about what you see and hear since what you see and hear will ultimately enter your heart (Matthew 13: 15).
The quality of your life cannot be better than what is in your heart. Sound health comes from the inside out.
The way to have health in your heart is to see and hear the word consistently (Matthew 12:35).
Medical science informs us that seventy percent of people’s illnesses are emotionally induced; they are the results of malfunctions in people’s thoughts and emotions.
The word of God is potent and life-giving (Hebrews 4:12AMP). Make sure you receive a daily intake of God’s word so you can receive His life into your body (John 6:63; Psalm 1:1-3).
