ACCEPT ONLY WHAT COMES FROM GOD – Pastor Chris

..A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven (John 3:27).
So many around the world today didn’t seem to have any problem with their health until they went for a check-up. The doctor said they had diabetes, and immediately, that information changed their lives; their sufferings began. They were in good health, until they got the doctor’s report. But you see, the medical data tells the fact, but God tells the truth.
God’s truth about your health is, “If Christ be in you, though your body may be ravaged by sickness or disease, the Holy Spirit, who perambulates your body, inundates it with divine life, ridding you of every infirmity.” Understand who you are: you’re born of God; you’re a new creation in Christ! The life in you is the very life of God; it’s not the kind that gets sick; it’s called “the imperishable life”; it’s incorruptible.
Even if you were born with a blood or heart condition, it’s all passed away, because the Bible says, “…if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God…” (2 Corinthians 5:17-18). The old life or nature that could be sick has been supplanted by the life of God. Moreover, the Bible says, “…Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses” (Matthew 8:17); Jesus did! He already took all sicknesses and infirmities away from you; therefore, enjoy divine health.
Don’t say you have diabetes; you can’t have it, because it’s not from God. As a new creation, everything in you, everything about your life, is new, and from God; we read it in 2 Corinthians 5:17-18. James 1:17 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights….” Then we read in our theme scripture, “…A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.” Sickness, disease, failure, lack, and weakness are not from God; they don’t come from heaven; so, don’t accept them.
The things that are from God are pure, perfect, and are of divine wisdom. If it hurts, binds or has darkness in it, it’s not from God; reject it in the Name of Jesus. Accept and endorse in your life only that which is consistent with the provisions of the Gospel and perfect will of God for you.
I accept and affirm only what the Word says I have. I’m what God says I am; I have what He says I have; and I can do what He says I can do! The prince of this world has nothing in me, for I’m full of God. Glory to God!
