What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 1 Corinthians 6:19

Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit; so you should treat your body as such, it’s God’s house. 1 Corinthians 6:20 says, “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which is God’s.” You’re to glorify God in your body as well as your spirit. This means you can’t afford to have your body ravaged by anything not of God like sin, Satan, sickness and disease. You must say, “No” to every vice of the devil, to cancer, asthma, leukaemia, or any form or kind of sickness or infection! Say these words out loud, “No illegal transaction of the enemy can take place in my body, because the Holy Ghost lives on the inside of me!”

Understand that though your body is God’s temple, it’s your responsibility to keep it flourishing in good health. You have the right to decide what happens in your body. Romans 8:13 says, “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.” This means you’re to put to death or disallow the misdeeds or wrong actions prompted by the body. Paul, writing to the Corinthian Church, explains that we’ll all give account to the Lord for whatever we allow in our physical bodies 2 Corinthians 5:10

It makes no difference how much Satan has attacked and tried to ravage your physical body. Maybe you’re unable to walk due to illness; this is the time to take charge! Command strength into your limbs in the Name of Jesus; declare that you’re strengthened, strong, and healthy and sound. Affirm vigorously that irrespective of the trouble in your body, greater is He that’s in you, than he that’s in the world.

The glory of God in your spirit impacts your physical body, ridding it of every sickness, pain or infection. Refuse to accommodate any trouble in your body; demand a restoration in the Name of Jesus, believe that it’s done and there’ll be a change in the mighty name of Jesus.

Jesus said, “…Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven…” Matthew 18:18. The word “bind” also means “forbid” or “disallow.” Therefore, whatsoever you forbid or disallow in your body in the name of Jesus shall be forbidden or disallowed in heaven. Speak health and life to your body and give yourself enough rest when it’s necessary. Your body was made for beauty and to give God glory. Therefore, glorify God in your body today. Hallelujah!!


Dear Father, thank you for showing me my responsibility as it pertains to my physical body. I vehemently refuse sickness, disease, weakness and every vice of the devil in my body. I’m strengthened, vitalized, quickened and energized in my physical body by the Spirit of God that dwells in me. I live in higher planes of life where I reign in righteousness and as kings, through Christ Jesus. Blessed be the name of the Lord Jesus Christ Hallelujah!
