Glorify God In Your Body

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? (1 Corinthians 6:19).

Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit; it’s God’s house. 1 Corinthians 6:20 says, “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” You’re to glorify God in your body as well as your spirit. This means you can’t afford to have your body ravaged by sin, Satan, sickness and disease. You must say, “No” to the devil, to cancer, asthma, leukemia, or any kind of sickness or infection! Declare, “No illegal transaction of the enemy can take place in my body, because the Holy Ghost lives in me!”

Understand that though your body is God’s house, it’s your responsibility to keep it flourishing in health. You have the right to decide what happens in your body. Romans 8:13 says, “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.” This means you’re to put to death or disallow the misdeeds or wrong actions prompted by the body. Paul, writing to the Corinthian Church, explains that we’ll all give account to the Lord for whatever we allow in our physical bodies (2 Corinthians 5:10).

It makes no difference how much Satan has attacked and tried to ravage your body. Maybe you’re unable to walk, this is the time to take charge! Command strength into your limbs in the Name of Jesus; declare that you’re strong, healthy and sound. Affirm vigorously that irrespective of the trouble in your body, greater is He that’s in you, than he that’s in the world. The glory of God in your spirit impacts your physical body, ridding it of every pain or infection. Refuse to accommodate any trouble in your body; demand a restoration in the Name of Jesus, and there’ll be a change.

Jesus said, “…Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven…” (Matthew 18:18). The word “bind” also means “forbid” or “disallow.” Therefore, whatsoever you forbid or disallow in your body shall be forbidden or disallowed in heaven. Speak health and life to your body and give yourself enough rest when it’s necessary. Your body was made for beauty and for glory. Therefore, glorify God in your body.

PRAYER

Dear Father, thank you for showing me my responsibility as it pertains to my physical body. I vehemently refuse sickness, disease, and weakness. I’m vitalized, quickened and energized in my physical body by the Spirit that dwells in me. I live in higher planes of life where I reign in righteousness, through Christ Jesus. Blessed be God!
