Scripture Reading: Act 10:38
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power : who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
Reflections: The writer of Acts speaks about the healing ministry of Jesus and leads us to discover one of the key causes of sicknesses and its remedy. He labels the cause as an ‘oppression of the devil’ and the remedy as the anointing of the Holy Spirit. This means that sickness can be a form of oppression from the devil. In other words, there are demonic activities to oppresses the health and physical wellbeing of people. This oppressive mechanism however gives way when the anointing of the Holy Spirit is introduced into the body of the oppressed. The anointing is a special endowment of the Holy Spirit that enables one to do exploits. As a follower of Christ you have access to the anointing. Your walk in the faith can release it so that you too can break the yoke of sickness.
Prayer: Oh Lord, let every yoke of sickness upon my life be broken by the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Confession: By the anointing of the Holy Spirit, the power of any sickness in my body is broken. I am healed in Jesus name.
