A Harvest of Health
People want to be well. No one wants to be sick. But to be well, you have to make choices. How often have you seen someone with a hacking cough still smoking a cigarette? Or an overweight person eating ice cream?
Our fleshly nature likes to take the easy way. And it’s much easier to give in to habits than to break them. It’s easier to give in to your flesh and watch television every night like the rest of the world, than to spend your time putting God’s healing Word into your heart.
I heard Charles Capps say that some people try to build the third story of a building on a vacant lot. That sounds funny, but spiritually speaking it’s true. A lot of people want to enjoy the benefits of healing without building the foundation for it from the Word of God.
It can’t be done. If you want a building, you have to start below ground level and lay a foundation. If you want a harvest, you will have to plant something first.
Everything in the natural world works that way. Ken calls it the law of genesis. This law of sowing and reaping works in the spirit realm too. It governs health, prosperity—in fact, everything in God’s kingdom is governed by the law of sowing and reaping. Jesus taught about it in Mark 4:26-29.
According to the law of sowing and reaping, if you want health, you need to do more than just want it. You even need to do more than believe in healing. You need to plant seed—and the seed you plant is the Word of God concerning healing. So look up healing scriptures. Begin sowing them into your spirit man. Speak them out loud every day. Soon, they will grow up and yield a harvest of health.
Speak the Word
I serve the Lord my God. He blesses my bread and my water and takes sickness away from my midst. (Exodus 23:25)
