The devotion in Kenneth E. Hagin's Faith Food for today is a very practical guide in dealing with our physical body from a Scriptural standpoint!

"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? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's" (1 Cor. 6:19-20)

Some have said, "Brother Hagin, our spirits belong to the Lord all right, but our bodies haven't been redeemed yet. So we have to go on suffering sickness and disease in the physical realm." 

But in the text above, God's Word tells us that not only your spirit, but your body as well, is bought with a price. Therefore, we are told, "…glorify God in your body…." 

Does God get glory out of the devil dominating us physically? Does God get glory when the temple of the Holy Spirit is being defaced with disease? No, certainly not. 

Why does God permit it, then? Because you are the custodian of your body, the temple of God's spirit. God said to you to do something about your body. 

Learn to stand against anything that attacks your body just as quickly as you stand against whatever attacks your spirit. Simply say, "Satan, you don't have any right to put that on my body. My body belongs to God." 

Matthew 28:18 says this about the authority that we have in HIM!

Matt 28:18  Jesus came and told his disciples, "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."  New Living Translation

So then THIS is what our confession of faith should be! From Faith Food:

Confession: My body is the temple of God. I will be a good custodian. I will glorify God in my body. 

Amen! Now here is Hillsong with "Beneath The Waters/I WillRise":

Shalom in Him!
