LIFE THROUGH THE SPIRIT
“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you” (Romans 8:11).
The Holy Spirit is the life-giver. With the Holy Spirit living in you, no sickness ought to stay in your body. Every cancer ought to die! Diabetes and HIV will be cleansed from your blood when you meditate on the fact that the Spirit of God, the life-giver Himself lives in you. In the Old Testament, God said to the people, “the life of the flesh is in the blood…” (Leviticus 17:11). But our opening scripture shows that this is different for the man who is born again and filled with the Holy Spirit! The Holy Spirit gives life—quickens—your physical body when you’re born again.
Even if your body had been paralyzed, the Holy Spirit can give life to your physical body and restore you to perfect health! (Romans 8:10). We find an example of this in Acts 14:8-10; when Paul preached in a city called Lystra. The Bible says “there sat a certain man… impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked: The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.”
All Paul did was to preach the Gospel and unveil the power of righteousness, and the Holy Spirit went into action, vitalizing the man’s body. If you’re born again and have received the Holy Spirit, you don’t need prayer to be healed of any infirmity. The realization that the Greater One lives in you, and that you no longer live by blood, but by the power of the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, is what you need! That power is at work in you even now, to revive, vitalize your physical body and produce life in every area where you may have hitherto experienced dryness, barrenness, stagnation or death.
