The journey of Healing.
If you are seeking healing, particularly for chronic illness, then you could well be embarking on a very interesting journey.
Let me share my own journey with you.
First of all, I confess that I am not an expert on the subject of healing. I have learned much through pursuing my own healing but I do not profess to know what is best for you, ( nor even what is best for me!)
What I do know is that God the Father sent His Son, Jesus the Christ, to die for us on a Cross, to forgive us of our sins. and on the Cross He bore our sicknesses and diseases - and with His stripes we were healed!
Well, that sounds simple enough; and it is! But, even though I have on many occasions stood in faith for healing on prayer lines and even prayed for myself and have received a measure of healing – it has not remained!
So this is where it can seem to get more complicated (but not to the Lord!) The problem is that there is something preventing the healing to remain.
The Truth is that God wants us healed: Spirit, Soul and Body. Notice the progression: first the Spirit to be healed (which happens at Salvation), then the Soul needs to be healed and then the Body. The following scripture describes the progression:
“Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper (in the heart and soul) and have good success (on the outside – the body.) Scrip ref: 3 John 2
What God wants is a thorough job of Salvation – Saved, Healed and made Whole.Which means that this is an ‘Inside-out’ job. It begins on the inside and flows to the outside.
And so with David, I cry: ”Search me, O God, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting,” Scrip ref: Ps 139: 23,24.
To get us going on this journey, we may find clues to any ‘Inner Conflicts’ by looking at our previous generations, especially where there has been repeating patterns of sinful behaviour, terrible trials, disaster or disease.
The sins of our father’s are passed on to the 10th generation but that does not mean we are stuck with them; we can bring them to the Cross and have Jesus take the sin and the resultant curse for us.
It would be good to have Spirit-filled Christians stand with you during and after this process (or research experienced Christian Healing & Deliverance Ministries) And after the prayer ministry it is very important to be on guard for any attempts of the enemy to try drag you back into bondage to fear. Rebuke him and declare Scriptural truths ie: who you are in Christ Jesus; that the devil is defeated by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony.
I have found that praying in tongues can be very powerful in bringing me into the presence and authority in Christ Jesus. Also keeping my eyes on Jesus seated upon the Throne of Grace helps bring me into a place of Victory!
Being absolutely rooted and grounded in His love is of paramount importance to retaining your healing. And to believe and confess the Word of Truth concerning your Salvation: ‘Saved, Healed, Whole!
The Enemy will attempt to harass you but he cannot get at Jesus; so make Jesus much bigger than the Enemy and he shall flee!
Remember, the Enemy only has access to those areas of our life which are exposed: ie, the areas of fear, sin, unforgiveness, rejection, self-pity and bitterness. Ensure those thoughts are brought to the obedience of Christ Jesus crucified for the forgiveness of sins and for our healing and wholeness.
