“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being” (Gen. 2:7 NKJ).
Before the fall, Adam’s earthly body was created from the dust of the ground. The life in his spirit overshadowed the dustiness of his earthly body. Man’s body was not originally created for death, which came the day they ate of the fruit. That means prior to the fall, the body of man was lifted up above degradation, disease, dysfunction, aging, and death. The spirit alive in man masked the dustiness of his body. It vivified his body, which was still dust.
The new creature in Christ has the very life of God, called eternal life. Adam had human life, but the new creation in Christ has the divine life. If Adam’s natural life could overshadow the dustiness of his body, how much more should the eternal life that is abiding within us? The life of God in our spirit vivifies our bodies as Adam’s life vivified his body. Eternal life manifests in our bodies here and now (2 Cor. 4:10-11, Rom 8:2). The Bible says life and death are in the power of the tongue (Prov. 18:21), so you activate eternal life in your body by speaking God’s Word over yourself. This principle is critical for both healing and health maintenance by the power of the Spirit. This is not medical science. Activate eternal life with your mouth each day.
Meditation is taking the Word into your spirit. You do so by pondering and muttering the scriptures. Meditate on the scripture above.
APPLY THE WORD
If you are sick, start commanding that disease to leave your body and declare that the life of God is working in your body to extinguish disease.
Thank the Lord for the gift of eternal life.
