Psalm 91:16 (KJV) -- "With long life will I satisfy him (you), and shew him (you) my salvation."

Heavenly Father, you have begun a good work in our lives so we must be confident that you will perform whatever it takes to complete it. As a result, You will satisfy us with long life and also, You showed us Your salvation. So, through this long life, You have given us power to speak Your Word over our bodies in order to keep them well during our lifetime on earth, as a result of Jesus: “ … bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED” (Isaiah 53:5 KJV).

Therefore, the weapon of sickness that used to come against our bodies shall no longer prosper, as long as we confess Your Word pertaining to sickness. Your Word will contend with the enemy on our behalf (Isaiah 49:25 KJV).

When we are faced with a situation or circumstance, based on 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV), we must use the right scripture to get our victory. By the authority and power of Jesus Christ, speak like this: “ … That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which He saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever He saith” (Mark 11:23 KJV). Nahum 1:9 (KJV) says it cannot come back, “What do ye imagine against the LORD? He will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.” Also, to make 1 John 4:4 (KJV) personal, paraphrase and say, “For greater is He (Jesus Christ) that is in me (who gives me power and authority over sickness and disease), than the enemy who is in the world.”

So, “Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy” (Psalm 107:2 KJV).

Thank God for redeeming us as a result of the blood of the Lamb (Jesus). Therefore, by the authority and power of His Word, we can say, “I believe that I receive my healing, and I walk in good health (Mark 11:24; 1 Peter 2:24 KJV). Release your faith in the Word: “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11 KJV).

Hopefully, you can see through these scriptures how God has given us permission to live a fruitful, healthy life, and His Word does not come back empty. Now, follow the instructions in Joshua 1:8 (KJV) -- mediate day and night, and what you are confessing by faith will come to pass.

Blessing and prosperity

Psalm 35:27 (KJV) says, “ … Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.”

The Lord wants us to prosper in every area of our lives. In Christ, we can be successful and the door of failure can be closed. Now, you know how to keep it closed so you will not experience defeat but success!
