Conditions To Enjoying Divine Healing And Health
Exodus 15:26; Jeremiah 33:6.
Divine healing and health are benefits to be enjoyed by the children of God but many fall short of receiving these benefits because they fail to continually fulfill the attached conditions. Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
Christ Jesus has fully paid for our healing through His vicarious sacrifice on the cross. So we have full access to enjoying good health if we fulfill our own expected role. Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes, we are healed.
We see from the text in Exodus 15:26 that God made a promise of health to the children of Israel after they came out from the Egyptian bondage, but there were attached conditions upon which the fulfillment was hinged. These are:
“Diligently hearken to the voice of God”– The voice of God is God’s call to repentance and continual walk with Him (Luke 5:32). Repentance and genuine salvation are the foremost prerequisites to enjoy divine health.
“Do that which is right in His sight” means to walk acceptably before God blameless and in righteousness Psalm 1:1,3.
“Give ear to His commandment”– This is hearing and prompt obedience to all the laws, ordinances, and precepts written in the word. We are to constantly hear, meditate upon and evidently perform all the unchangeable words of the scriptures.
And finally, “Keep all His statutes”– These are the revealed laws of divine worship. God requires that we give reverence to His presence and His name in worship and service to Him.
Meditation – Are you enjoying divine health? meditate on the above even as God perfects all that concerns you. Amen
