Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk (Acts 3:6).
The Christian isn’t the sick, wanting to be healed. Sadly, that’s been the understanding of many. Being born again, you have the God-life; the “imperishable” life. As Jesus said, the Christian has the power to heal; he’s called of God to take healing to the world. Study the Scriptures and you’d find that’s what Jesus did; the Bible says He went about doing good, healing ALL that were oppressed of the devil (Acts 10:38).
The Apostles did the same thing; they ministered healing to the sick. We read, for example, about Peter and John in Acts 3, going into the temple and were attracted to a lame beggar who sat at the gate of the temple, asking alms of everyone entering and leaving the temple. Peter’s response was very inspiring; he said, “…Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength” (Acts 3:6-7).
Notice that what Peter had to give him wasn’t “prayer” or the power to pray. This is where some Christians miss it; they think God gave us “power to pray for the sick”; no! He gave us power to heal the sick. Read Matthew 10:1; it says, “And when he (Jesus) had called unto him his twelve disciples, HE GAVE THEM POWER AGAINST UNCLEAN SPIRITS, TO CAST THEM OUT, AND TO HEAL ALL MANNER OF SICKNESS AND ALL MANNER OF DISEASE.” Jesus gave us power to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease; not some manner, but ALL. So, it makes no difference what the case is; you have power to heal it.
Jesus said in Mark 16:17-18, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; THEY SHALL LAY HANDS ON THE SICK, AND THEY SHALL RECOVER.” Put what you’ve got to work. Refuse to allow the devil run rampage in your life or in the lives of your loved ones in the form of sickness. You’re a healer; walk in this consciousness.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for your grace and glory at work in me to minister healing to the sick. I acknowledge your divine life in me that dispels sickness, disease and infirmities, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
“And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.”
“And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,
15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:”

Extract From Rhapsody Of Realities Daily Devotional
I maintain divine health and victory in Christ Jesus through my faith in God and His Word which I demonstrate daily. My faith has overcome the world and its system. I am a faith child of a faith God and I am neither moved nor perturbed by the things my physical senses perceive, because I live and overcome daily by faith in the Word of God. By the stripes of Jesus I was healed; therefore, I’m the healed of God and I remain in divine health because God’s Word is influencing my body, revitalizing my frame, making me whole, in the matchless Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
I affirm that the Lord is my light and my salvation; He’s the strength of my life! He’s with me like a mighty One; therefore, no weapon fashioned against me prospers. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; I have a goodly heritage. Daily, I go out with joy and I am led forth with peace; my steps are ordered of the Lord. Joy, health, peace, prosperity and the good life are my heritage in Christ! Hallelujah.
Irrespective of the economic downturn, whatever I do prosper. I am like a tree planted by the rivers of living water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; my leaf (idea, dream, vision) do not wither. My leaf is evergreen! I flourish like the cedar of Lebanon, I do not know when dryness comes. Hallelujah!
My spirit is opened to fresh ideas that are not common to the natural man. I’m a city set on the hill and I can’t be hidden. I’m the light of the world and the brightness of my light is bringing men and women into the kingdom of God. I am the salt of the earth; thus, everything in my sphere of contact is preserved. My way is paved by the Lord! I’ll not walk in darkness because my path is that of the righteous that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. Glory to God!
• Be bold to say the same things that God has said concerning you in His Word. That is what takes you beyond salvation, to enjoy the benefits of salvation ~ Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.
KINDLY SAY THESE WORDS OUT LOUD.
Dear Father, I thank You for the power of the Holy Spirit that resides and is fully operational in me. When I show up, burdens are lifted, and yokes destroyed. I am a God-carrying vessel and a dispenser of eternal verities. I am a big-time financier of the Gospel, and doors of opportunity are open unto me right now in different parts of the earth. I thank You for the privilege to use and live in the Name of Jesus. I’m always assured of answers, knowing that the Holy Spirit immediately goes to work on my behalf! Thank you for this wonderful blessing. Hallelujah!
I am not helpless but empowered to effect changes in the circumstances of life by faith and in the Name of Jesus. My faith in God and in the power of His Word prevails today, and always, and I rejoice, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Nothing is impossible unto me, and no level of success, victory, and progress are unattainable for me because I live by faith in the Word. Hallelujah!
I am alive unto God; excellence, glory, virtue, and success are the hallmarks of my life because the grace of God is superabundant upon me. I grow in grace and in the knowledge of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The beauty of God in my spirit is showing forth on the outside, evidently, manifest for all to see! Blessed be God. Hallelujah!
