A sister in Christ sent me this request: “Dear Malia, I need prayer. For some time I have been bleeding from my private parts. I went to the hospital and did some tests. The doctors do not yet know what is wrong. What do you think?”
“It is not important what I think! What God thinks about you is what really matters. And God said that He is your Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals. There are times when the human doctors are like children, ignorant of their ignorance. Keep your eyes on Jesus, not on the circumstances and not on your strength. Calmly abide in the Word of God that you already believe!
In one way, your body is cheap, not more than ‘the sand’ used to make it. But in another way, your body is very expensive, for the Holy Spirit chose to be its Tenant. The rent was paid with the Blood of Jesus shed on the Cross. The price was so much, even more than the body itself. So He has to right to use it as He pleases. There is no fear that your Tenant will destroy it. The Tenant is the Owner too. God loves you with a perfect love. He loves you as a whole person, body, soul and spirit. One day He will transform this ‘lowly body’ into another glorious one, to be just like Him. But until then, He will use this one which is available as a Temple and Sanctuary for Himself on this earth. Like Jesus visited Mary and Martha in their humble home, the Holy Spirit chose to rest in your body. This is a mighty privilege for not all men can say that. His ‘rent’ is paid with many blessings, healing, deliverance, strength, peace and joy.
So I say to you: Be filled with the Holy Spirit! Glorify God with your body! Be grateful for your body!
Pray not just for healing but for a testimony of healing! You are not an ordinary woman so you cannot expect an ‘ordinary’ life style with an ‘ordinary’ healing. This is how the unbelievers do. Let your faith increase! Reject fear and doubt! God is in control! Your body is the temple (not only of your ‘private parts’) but of the SPIRIT OF LIFE, THE HOLY GHOST! Your sickness is an enemy of the Holy Spirit so God will fight His own battle! And God always wins! I am on God’s side! Be on God’s side, Sister…
I plead the Blood of Jesus over you!
Be healed, in Jesus name, Amen!”
“Haven’t you yet learned that your body is the home of the Holy Spirit God gave you, and that He lives within you? Your own body does not belong to you. For God has bought you with a great price. So use every part of your body to give glory back to God because he owns it” (1Cor 6:19, 20; LB)
In Christ I declare:
My body belongs to the Holy Spirit!
I am healed!
In Jesus name
