He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions (Psalm 107:20).
Most times, people become sick when an outside force attacks their bodies. It could be a virus or germ, which is a spirit of infirmity. “Spirit of infirmity” refers to anything from very small entities to sizable spiritual beings; they function alike, but they’re not part of your body. They’re all external forces that can come against (attack) your body.
Whether it’s some bacterial, viral, or a demonic force, you ought to deal with all three of them the same way. You’ve got to repel them; otherwise, they’ll cause harm. You should never be a victim. Jesus said, “…if they (Christians) drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them…” (Mark 16:18). Believe the words of Jesus!
Once any symptom shows up, that’s the time to deal with it with the Word. If you don’t act as radically as you should, the pain could become so excruciating that it becomes difficult for you to pray. Satan’s goal is for you to get weaker and weaker until you’re too weak to pray or make any confession.
You’ve got to act when you still can. The Bible talks about certain characters who lose their appetite for all food due to sickness (Psalm 107:17-18). When people fall sick, it becomes difficult for them to eat, and as a result, they get weaker and weaker towards death.
Don’t wait till you get too weak to pray. Put your faith to work. Meditate on the Word of God. The Word of God is medicine to your physical body (Proverbs 4:22). No wonder our theme verse says, “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”
He didn’t send drugs; He sent His Word, because His Word produces healing and health for the sick. No matter how severe the sickness might be, just keep meditating on the Scriptures. Keep affirming your healing and health and before long, the infirmity will be repelled and you’ll come out victorious!
I refuse to be sick! The Spirit of Him that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in me, and that Spirit has made my body alive. Therefore, I give no place to sickness, disease or infirmity in my body! With the Word of God on my lips, I repel the depravities and negativities of this world and their corrupting influences. Hallelujah!
