Since the children have flesh and blood, He too shared in their humanity so that by His death He might destroy him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death…
Hebrews 2:14–15, NIV
Did you know that God never meant for man to die?
God counts death as an enemy. He hates death. All things that lead to death, that sap life out of us, including all forms of sickness and disease, are not from God. Jesus wept at Lazarus’ tomb because He remembered that it was never God’s heart for man to fall sick, grow old and die.
But because the consequence of sin is death, God sent Jesus to bear the punishment for all our sins. And at the cross, Jesus conquered death once and for all, setting us free from sicknesses and diseases forever (Isaiah 53:4–5)!
Today, know in your heart that God wants you healed and whole, strong and full of His life. He loves you so much that He sent Jesus to redeem you from death in all forms. The cross of Jesus is the reason you can enjoy His divine health and abundant life today!
