You Are Fearfully And Wonderfully Made

I will praise thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Psalms 139:14
I’m sure you have read or heard our scripture text above that we are, “Fearfully and wonderfully made.” But I want you to know for certain that you were NOT made for sickness. I want to share two reasons why you were made to experience healing for your body.

Number 1. YOU MAY HAVE BEEN BORN SICK, BUT YOUR HEALING GLORIFIES GOD. In John 9:1-3 we’re told the disciples asked who had sinned to cause a man to be born blind. Jesus explained that the man’s blindness wasn’t the result of anyone’s sin, but He would redeem the situation by healing the man. We know also that Jesus redeemed you from the curse of the law (Gal. 3:13), and that includes sickness and disease.

By experiencing healing, you can testify to God’s power and goodness in your life. When I was 9 years old, I confessed with my mouth and believed in my heart that Jesus was my Savior and Lord. At that moment, I became a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17). I didn’t see my spirit become new. I didn’t necessarily feel any different. I had to receive it by faith.

It is the same way with your healing. When you pray for healing based on the promises of God regarding healing and confess it’s reality in your body, it is instantly received in your physical body, but it may take some time and discipline before you see it manifest in your life. This is why the Bible speaks of Faith and Patience or Persistence (Hebrews 6:12).

Reason 2. AS A BELIEVER, YOU HAVE AUTHORITY OVER YOUR BODY. Though your outward man perishes, your inward man is renewed day by day (2 Cor 4:16). You know, there is something about life that is just so daily. What you do in your day-to-day life can add up for you or against you regarding your health.

As a steward over your body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit, you can choose to either bless or curse your temple. Just because you experience a symptom, it doesn’t mean you have to INVITE IT IN WITH YOUR WORDS. Remembering Psalm 139:14 can help you experience your healing.

The next time a symptom starts to come to your body, I encourage you to remind yourself that you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Glorify God and tell your symptoms that they are of zero substance and don’t let them make you doubt your healing. THANK YOU LORD, I AM THE HEALED. Thank you Jesus.
