THE CURATIVE POWER OF GOD’S WORD
God’s Word is the solution to every challenge. Its potency and efficacy are undeniable.
My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh (Proverbs 4:20-22).
The word translated “health” in our opening text is the Hebrew word “marpe,” which means medicine. So, that verse should actually read, “…For they are life unto those that find them, and health [medicine] to all their flesh.”
The Word of God is medicine; it has curative powers. If you’ll meditate on the Word, it’ll destroy every, and any form of disease and infirmity in your body. The Bible says, “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions” (Psalm 107:20).
God’s Word is the solution to every challenge. Its potency and efficacy are undeniable. The Word has the ability to transform your life, energize you for victory, and programme you for excellence. As you meditate on the Word, a metamorphosis takes place in your life. If you’re facing challenges in your health, don’t despair. Get a hold of God’s Word and there’ll be a change.
When you don’t study or feed on the Word as you should, you starve your spirit, and that’s dangerous. It’s like people who stay without eating physical food for a long time; they become weak and eventually susceptible to sickness and disease; their immunity against germs and viruses rapidly dissipates. But if you’re feeding well, chances are, you’re unlikely to have the same problems.
The Word of God does much more for your spirit than physical food. If you’ll stay in the Word, you’ll always be healthy and sound. If you’d meditate on the Word, it’ll cure that blood condition, get rid of the HIV, heal your bones, heart, and skin, and produce life in you! It’ll cure that wound that has defied treatment. Speak the Word to that infirmity; talk to that cancer; talk to your blood cells; command the diabetes to be healed! Keep yourself in health with the Word.
YOU HAVE TO SAY IT TO LIVE IT
The most beautiful natural gift from God to man is the gift of words, the ability to speak and make words.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith (Mark 11:23).
The most beautiful natural gift from God to man is the gift of words, the ability to speak and make words. You’re what you say. Your life is the summation of the words that come out of you. Our opening verse emphasises the importance of framing your life aright with your words. The principle is clear: what you say is what you get. Life will produce for you a harvest of what you say—good or bad.
Understand that in this, there’s no middle ground. Someone might say, “Well, I haven’t been saying anything at all; so I believe I’m going to be okay,” no; it doesn’t work that way. You’ll still have a harvest; howbeit, the wrong one. It’s like having a garden and refusing to sow any seed in it; something will definitely grow of its own accord—weeds. Sadly, the lives of some are that way. They don’t realize it’s their responsibility to keep themselves in victory, dominion, and prosperity.
God already did all that’s necessary for you to have and enjoy a transcendent life in Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. It’s your responsibility now to keep things that way, and it’s mainly about your confession. You must affirm that you have a great life, if you’re going to live it! You must acknowledge and confess that you’ve been called to a life of glory and virtue; a life of power, beauty and excellence.
2 Peter 1:3 says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.” Now you can see that there isn’t anything you don’t have. This ought therefore, to form the basis for your faith declarations.
Never talk lack, sickness, weakness, inability or fear. Rather, keep affirming that you have and walk in divine health. Affirm that the Lord is your strength, your righteousness, your success, and your prosperity. Keep saying it and your life will go in one direction only—upward and forward.

I read the Bible daily but easily forget what I read. What do you think might be wrong with me?
ANSWERPastor Chris: First of all, the ministry of the Holy Spirit includes reminding us of anything that the Lord has taught us. So, if you are having problems remembering the word of God, then it’ll mean that you never actually introduced that word into your spirit because we have a memory in our mind and we have a memory in our spirits when we hear the word of God he wants us to commit it into our Spiritual memory, your spirit can remember, you remember that in the Bible when Jesus talked about the rich man and Lazarus and then Abraham who received Lazarus’s after his death into his bosom and then the rich man also dead and went to hell. And then in hell he called out to father Abraham whom he saw across the gulf on the other side and he addressed Father Abraham and father Abraham said to him, son remember, he said remember, he said remember and he told him what to remember when he was in the earth because human spirit has the capacity to remember.
So, you can remember in your spirit and one other beautiful things even your mind is a possession of your Spirit because it belongs in your spirit and so this is something you need to realize if you will commit the word of God to your spiritual memory you will not lose it. That’s why we meditate there is a difference between meditation and cramming. When you cram something you are committing it to your outward memory which we call the mind alright but then when you mediate you pass on the same thing into your spirit we mediate with our hearts and this is what you need to do to the word of God because you said you will like to preach the word, if you’re going to preach the word you will have to have it in your spirit and the spirit of man is the place for the word of God. That’s where the difference is because it says with your heart you believe, he says with the heart man believes unto righteousness. You see the word of God comes into your heart, your spirit and that’s where you believe.
