    Psalms 119:9 " Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word."

    Spending time in God's word will cleanse you spiritually as well as physically.

    I say spiritually first because I know christians with physical ailments that were given these as a cross to bear. Yet many find that God's grace is sufficient for them.
  • Tsitsi Doris Chipendo on Proverbs 3:8
    So powerful, healing is in the word of God. I speak the word of God over my health and have seen tremendous changes. Surely, the word works. It is medicine to my body. If you just see what is is happening in this world, people are suffering from sickness and what they do is they affect bones and can not move, but when you meditate on this verse, it says, the Word is marrow to your bones. Marrow is the soft stuff inside the bones and is useful for the production of red blood cells. The Word of God is likened to that marrow, revitalising your mortal body. I love the Word of God. Acts 20:32 says the Word is able to build you up. It can be in your health, finances, family, marriage, whatever. The Word of God really works.
