God Wants You Healthy—Every Day! Gloria Copeland 04 September And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

I have some revolutionary news for you today. God wants you healthy! Every day! Oh, I know that, you may quickly think, I know God will heal me when I get sick. Yes, that’s true. He will. But that’s not what I’m saying. I’m telling you God’s perfect will is for you to live continually in divine health. His will is for you to walk so fully in the power of His Word that sickness and disease are literally pushed away from you. Isn’t that good news? You’ve probably heard a lot about God’s healing power, but there is a difference between divine healing and divine health. Years ago, the powerful preacher John G. Lake put it this way, “Divine healing is the removal by the power of God of the disease that has come upon the body. But divine health is to live day by day, hour by hour in touch with God so that the life of God flows into the body just as the life of God flows into the mind or flows into the spirit.” Proverbs 4:20-22 tells us God’s Word is life to us and health to our bodies. That word health in Hebrew means “medicine.” God’s Word has life in it. It is actually spirit food. As you feed on it, you become strong spiritually and physically. When you read the Word and meditate on it, you are actually taking God’s medicine. If you will be faithful to take it continually, eventually it will be as hard for you to get sick as it was for you to get well. But it’s a process. You can’t just read the healing scriptures once and then go on about your business. You must continually feed on the Word of God to keep healing in your life. When you do that, you’ll be walking healed every day! You’ll be walking in divine health. Ecclesiastes 12; Song of Solomon 1; Psalm 22 I serve the Lord my God, and He blesses my bread and my water and takes sickness away from my midst. Exodus 23:25
