THE COVENANT OF HEALTH


Write by:

TEXT: Exodus15:22-26
INTRODUCTION:  Divine health is God’s will for us. Man lost the privilege of remaining in health following the sin of Adam and Eve. In His love and mercy, God initiated the covenant of health with the Patriarch. His healing power is embedded in His Word.

Divine health is part of the redemption package that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ obtained for us on the cross. His death was not only to save us from sin but also to deliver us from sicknesses.
The authority to rule over sickness and disease has been given to us. It is our duty to exercise that right.

Outline:

1) Revealed in God’s Word:
Ps.107:20; Ex.15:26; Ex.23:25-26; Deu7:12,14-15; Ps.91:10; Pro.4:20-22
The covenant of health God has with Man is expressed in His Word. The healing power in His word is able to reverse any contrary situation in the life of anyone. The children of Israel experienced divine health as a result of the covenant God had with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. This was evident by the fact that on entering the Promised Land, none of the children of Israel was feeble.

2) It is God’s will for us to live in health:
 Jer. 30:17; III Jn. 2; Mt. 8:1-3
God’s will or desire is that we live in divine health rather than being in a state of continuous ill health-seeking for healing in ungodly ways. Jesus demonstrated His willingness to heal anyone irrespective of the nature of sickness in His encounter with the leper.

MEMORY VERSE: III John 1:2 KJV
”Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
