We’re moving to that website so that we can cover many topics in addition to the subject of healing. We look forward to seeing you there!
When you want to receive healing, it’s vital to believe deep within your heart that God wants you to be well and healthy.
But in order to believe that, we have to know who God is. I developed so many ideas of God throughout my life that I ended up with a mixture of concepts that became confusing. Sometimes He was a God of mercy and sometimes He was a God of judgment. Sometimes He was a God of grace and sometimes He was a God of punishment. I’d go back and forth and up and down. It has certainly taken some time for me to sort things out by reading and studying the Bible.
When you want to receive healing, it’s vital to believe deep within your heart that God wants you to be healthy. Think of all the reasons that you may believe that God has some purpose for you or a loved one to be sick. Do you think that illness is a part of God’s plan for His children? Or do you believe that you are being punished for some past wrongdoing? Or do you believe you are being taught a lesson?
Whatever your thoughts have been up to now, let this be a new beginning and read God’s Word with new eyes. Open your mind and your heart to receive new revelation of God’s will for you.
Remember that God created His beloved Adam and Eve and placed them in a wondrous garden where only goodness surrounded them. Sickness and disease didn’t exist. Therefore, it is clear that in the Garden we see the perfect expression of God’s will. He wanted us to walk with Him and commune with Him in the fullness and abundance of life.
Now ask yourself this question: has God’s will changed? Did God love Adam and Eve more than you? If you think the answer is “yes,” then take another look at the Word which says that God doesn’t love one person more than another.
God didn’t change. What changed was Adam. It was man’s will that changed. Man’s will shifted from obedience to disobedience to eat of the fruit and know evil when Eve believed a lie from the devil and Adam joined her in disobeying God’s instructions. Sickness and disease occurred only when Adam and Eve chose to include evil in their world. That was a result of their will, not God’s.
God’s will never changes. Repeat that statement out loud if you have to. God’s will never changes, and His will is for you to be healthy.
Today let’s allow our Heavenly Father to share His heart with us through His covenant promises, His Word, and revelation of the Holy Spirit. Let’s start over. Let’s stop the relentless struggling and grab onto God’s Word like a bulldog with a bone.
So .. maybe we’ve been praying for healing for ourselves or a loved one and it hasn’t manifested yet. Ok. Then let’s learn together and find out what has been standing in the way of our recovery.
Let’s get bold and make changes in our lives. Now we’ve got each other for encouragement. So let’s go for it — all the way to victory in 2011!
