But be ye doers of the word, and not 
hearers only, deceiving your own selves 
(James 1:22)
m o n d a y 11
Many Christians have lived in the sense-realm 
for too long. If they feel a headache, the first 
thing that comes to their minds is the medication to 
take. They’re not conscious that they have power over 
sickness, disease, and infirmity; they’re not conscious 
that they have the divine life. 
The Christian is a partaker of the divine nature; 
an associate of the God-kind. You have the very life 
of  God  in  you;  that  makes  you  more  than  a  mere 
man. Sickness really can’t, and shouldn’t thrive in your 
body, because Christ is the life of your physical body. 
His presence in you already gave life to your mortal 
Why then are many still burdened with sickness 
and  ravaged  by  one  health  issue  or  the  other?  The 
answer  is  clear:  ignorance.  The  psalmist  said,  “They 
know  not,  neither  will  they  understand…”  (Psalm 
82:5). Jesus said concerning the believing ones,  “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” (Mark 16:18). 
The  above  verse  is  a  sovereign  declaration  of 
Deity; it’s a present-hour reality, guaranteed to produce
results. Believe and act on it. Practise it for yourself, and
on others. Believing the Word and acting accordingly
is the way to make the Word effective in your life.
Faith is acting on the Word of God that you’ve
believed. If there’s no action, then there’s no faith, and
without  faith,  it’s  impossible  to  please  God.  Faith  is
standing your ground on the reality of the Word.
Yes,  hearing  the  Word  produces  faith  in  you,
(Romans 10:17), but acting on it, living it out, is what
causes you to excel, prosper, and make progress in
life with giant strides.
I worship you, precious Lord, for your kindness and
infinite mercies. Thank you for making me a partaker
of the divine nature, an associate of the God-kind.
Your life and nature in me makes me more than a
mere  man;  I’m  supernatural,  excellent  and  full  of
glory. I walk in, and manifest the dominion of Christ
today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
James 1:22-25; James 2:20-26
