Seeds of Destiny 10th August 2021 Today Devotional Message
The Scripture makes it clear that a major channel for healing and health is confession and forgiveness of sins.
James 5:14-16 says,
Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
This means, if a sick person is anointed with oil, the prayer of faith can heal him. And if he has committed sin, he can be forgiven.
This means, sickness is linked with sin. It may not be every sickness, but there is a connection between sickness and sin. And there is a connection between the confession of sins and the healing of the body.
Psalms 103:1-3 says,
Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases.
Before God would heal all your diseases, He first forgives your iniquities (sins).
Also, Psalm 119:67 says,
Before I was afflicted, I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.
Going astray does not only mean smoking, drinking or fornicating, it could also mean little exaggeration of facts. Going astray could also involve being arrogant, keeping malice and refusing to forgive your offenders.
Beloved, ensure you stay away from iniquity in order to have sound health.
Remember This: There is a connection between sickness and sin. There is a connection between the confession of sins and the healing of the body.
1. Ask for the Mercy of God to cleanse you from every iniquity.
2. Decide to stay pure in order to be healthy.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for Your Mercy. Cleanse me from every iniquity, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
