Just as you have to eat every day so that your physical body is strengthened, you must also "eat" spiritual food.
Just as you have to eat every day so that your physical body is strengthened, you must also “eat” spiritual food.
This is done by reading and meditating on Scripture. If you ate food once a month and expected to be strong, that wouldn’t go too well for you. Likewise, if you read your Bible once a month or pick it up only when a crisis happens, you can’t expect your faith to be strong.
Day by Day
It’s beneficial to have a daily time of prayer and Bible reading. From your Bible reading, you can take one scripture and mull it over in your mind all day long. Quote it every time you get a chance. Think about that verse until it becomes so strong in your heart that if something happens that is contrary to it, you simply can’t accept it. Why? Because your thoughts immediately turn to the Word of God, and you accept only the Word as your final authority.
For instance, let’s say you’re meditating on First Peter 2:24, which says, “Who his own self bore our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes you were healed.” You’ve thought about this verse and meditated on it for such a long time that if a doctor gave you a bad report, your first thought would be, “No. That sickness is contrary to the Word of God. Jesus paid the price for all diseases when He died on the Cross. I’m not going to accept this bad report. I’m going to stand on God’s Word for my healing.”
As you speak what God’s Word says about healing, let it be more real to you than any pain or symptom you feel in your body. As soon as your body starts hurting, instead of speaking what you feel or see, speak God’s Word. Continue to say what God’s Word says until that Word gets down deep and a living faith arises in your heart. As you continue to confess healing scriptures over your body, you will see the manifestation of your healing.
Many people wait until they are diagnosed with cancer or some other terminal disease before they start filling their hearts with healing scriptures. You can compare that to trying to put a roof on a house during a storm. It can be done, but it’s going to be tough. That’s why it’s better to start developing faith for healing when you’re feeling fine and not facing a challenge.
Continually spend time reading, meditating, and confessing the Word. When you do, it won’t matter what comes your way, your faith will turn impossibilities into possibilities!
