The Word of God is His gift to us to keep our bodies according to His design and desire. It is His answer to all human problems. God can’t help anyone outside of His Word, for it is His power to save (Romans 1:16).

You can take God’s Word on any subject, apply it to a corresponding situation, and rest assured that it will produce the results that it talks about. Our opening Scripture gives us God’s recipe, as it were, for applying His Word to our physical bodies and having it produce healing and health in us always.

The first step in applying God’s Word is to attend to it. Regardless of all that you do, God wants you to step aside and incline your ears to His Word. You may even feel very weak, with a lot of things weighing on your mind, but God is saying, “Step aside from all those things and listen to Me.”

The truth is, if you don’t know what the Word says, it would be impossible for you to apply it. Ignorance of God’s Word has been the bane of many Christians. Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge…”

The next step in applying God’s Word to your body is to say what God has said. Joshua 1:8 says, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”

The importance of speaking God’s Word can’t be over-emphasized in the life of a child of God. The Scripture above tells us that if you keep the Word on your lips, you are sure to prosper and be successful in every area of your life, which, of course, includes your physical body. You speaking God’s Word is more potent and effective than any drug or medication you may take. You can cut down any infirmity with the Word of God on your lips.

The next step is to do the Word. It means that, regardless of the circumstances around you, you take hold of the Word concerning a particular situation and do what it says. Jesus was preaching one day in Capernaum and three men brought their friend who was paralyzed to Him.

The Bible records that Jesus simply said to him, “…Arise, take up thy bed and go thy way into thine house” (Mark 2:11). God’s Word carries His divine ability. When Jesus spoke those words, the man heard it and immediately got up, made his bed, and went home. He acted on the Word of the Master. That Word lifted him and the paralysis couldn’t hold him down.

Acting on God’s Word is key to experiencing the miraculous. If there’s been a lingering condition in your body, instead of hoping that things will turn out right someday, take hold of God’s Word concerning your divine health in Christ and act on it.

For instance, 3 John 1:2 says, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health…” When you hear that, what you ought to do immediately is act like someone who is in health. If you were weighed down by some symptoms before you read this, you shake them off, get up, and begin to do what you couldn’t do before.

Acting on God’s Word has nothing to do with your feelings. It’s an act of faith. Faith is taking a stand on God’s Word and insisting on its reality. The Word of God is all you need to be that glorious, radiant, and successful you. As you choose to act consistently on the Word, it’s only a matter of time before your whole life aligns with what it says.
