Topic: The Key to Healthy Living [Seeds of Destiny 11 September 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:14-15.
Thought For The Day: The Cross is God’s answer that crushes all sicknesses and afflictions.
In the Book of Numbers Chapter Twenty One, the Bible gives an account of the children of Israel on their way to the Promised Land. In the wilderness, they erred by speaking against God and His servant, Moses. Then God permitted serpents to bite them. When they cried out to Moses, God told Moses to mould a fiery serpent made of brass and set it on a pole so that anyone who looked up at the serpent on the pole after being bitten would be healed from the venom of the biting serpent on the ground.
Now, in the New Testament, Our Master, Jesus tells us in the above scripture that the way the serpent was lifted in the wilderness was the same way He, the son of man would be lifted up. This means, the way the children of Israel were healed when they looked up at the serpent on the pole is the same way we would be healed and delivered when we look up to Jesus who was crucified on the Cross.
This is the key to healthy living!
In practical terms, how does this apply to us today? When you are sick or afflicted, lift up your eyes of faith to the Cross of Calvary where ‘It is finished.’ On the Cross of Calvary, Jesus finished all the works of the devil, including afflictions and diseases. The Cross is God’s answer that crushes all sicknesses and afflictions. So, when you look up to the Cross where sickness and diseases had already been finished by Jesus, you would be healed of every sickness in your body. This understanding is key to terminating every sickness in your body and maintaining a healthy life.
My counsel is, always look up to the Cross of Calvary and you will be made whole.
Remember this: The Cross is God’s answer that crushes all sicknesses and afflictions.
1. Make up your mind to look up at the Cross of Calvary with your eyes of faith.
2. Ask God to heal you of every sickness and affliction in your life.
Prayer: Thank You Lord for perfecting my healing on the Cross of Calvary. I receive my total healing by looking up at the finished work of Christ on the Cross of Calvary, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
