Hearing From God For your Christian Healing & Wholeness

images-7The primary means of Hearing from God for your Healing is through His Word.

I find that as I meditate on what I read in the Bible I begin to recognise His voice speaking to my Soul about many aspects of my life.

For example, on the subject of physical healing, I read over and over in The Word as to what God my Father say’s about healing. I become fully persuaded that Jesus Himself took upon His body my infirmities and pain – “And with His stripes I was healed.” 1 Peter 2:24

There is a caveat to this promise I believe. I have to be fully persuaded that what I read in the Bible – His Word, is true!

One of the primary schemes of the Enemy of our Soul is to cause us to disbelieve what God say’s is true. He will attempt to bring up fears, failure, hurts, rejection and sins from the past. All of which can fester in the soul causing more ‘Dis – ease’

The un-renewed soul, the home of the mind, will and emotions will attempt to make us feel unworthy in receiving our unearned favour from the Lord. A renewed soul, on the other hand, will enable us to receive the flow of life that brings freedom and healing.

I believe this flow comes about by meditating on His Word, Worshipping Him, knowing who we are In Christ Jesus and declaring the Truth that makes us free!

How to Receive Your Christian Miracle

From the Bible’s perspective, miracles are gracious and mighty works of God that display his unique power and dominion over all creation. They are “gracious” because God in his mercy chooses to reveal himself supernaturally in a way that displays his willingness to interact with mankind.

Rejoice!

Biblical miracles serve to authenticate God’s messengers. Some miracles demonstrate God’s salvation, others his judgment.

But right now you are probably wondering how to receive your miracle of healing or miracle of financial provision, etc. You may relate to my own experience of receiving a miracle below.

Testimony: When I became a Christian I began smoking cigarettes like I’d never smoked before. I was virtually chain-smoking. I did everything to quit smoking. I’d buy a pack if 20 cigarettes, smoke them one after the other than get so angry with myself I’d flush half the packet down the toilet. 30 minutes later, Id leave my Apartment and walk to the local ‘All Night’ Store and smoke cigarettes one after the other. I was frantic with shame, terribly un-healthy and fearful.

One night, again smoking one cigarette after the other I prayed for deliverance (for the 10th time that month) and right there in the quietness of night I suddenly received my miracle. In a moment I was free. Every thing went quiet and I knew I was delivered of nicotine addiction! Twenty years later I’m still totally free. Praise God.

I have no Spiritual formula other than to say that Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you. Just keep praying, seeking and expecting your miracle. It is on its’ way!

At last, The Secret to Eden is Revealed

RETURN TO EDEN

“Return to Eden is a return to simple relationship with God the Father through faith in Christ Jesus”green_leaf_detail_197175This Blog of letters and pictures is about my own personal experience in seeking God’s Restorative power to cultivate right attitudes of the heart and mind.

Return to Eden is a return to relationship with God the Father – at the heart level. It is to walk with Him and talk with Him – just like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

It is to know Him and fellowship with Him in the cool of the

Garden. It is about deep and profound prayer.

Through Jesus we are now able to come right into God the Father’s presence, just as it was in the Garden of Eden – to see Him as He is and to rest in His love.

Christianity is not a Religion of ‘works’ to try appease a harsh and distant God. No! It is about becoming as a child and running into the the arms of the Father;  just like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

God is incredibly forgiving and accepting and is not expecting perfection nor piety – simply a realistic and open Father, Son, Daughter relationship.

But how do we get so close to Him and not fear being ‘fried’ in His presence?

The first thing we must do is not be put off by an old image of a harsh and judging God. He relates to us differently now because of the sacrificial offering of His Son, Jesus – who alone died for the forgiveness of sins.

Yes, God is Holy, Righteous and all-powerful but His anger against sin is now paid for at the Cross of Calvary.

We now come to Him by grace through faith in Christ Jesus.

One way of entering into His presence is through Journaling. It is a process of quieting our minds; focussing on Jesus; thanking Him; praising Him and waiting on Him. A picture or thought might come to mind; then write it down. You may simply write a question and wait, with expectation, to hear His reply. Meanwhile, have your pen ready to write what you feel He is saying and to comment if anything comes to mind. If a scriptural verse comes to mind, then write it down.

Ask another question and return to the flow of His presence. Within minutes you may well have a conversation going; or at least a very clear connection with the Father.

Write about what you are concerned about or joyful about, or excited about. He is a loving Father who wants only to reveal His heart to His children. Don’t let the enemy of your soul rob you of this precious moment with the Father. And if He says anything specific about a difficult situation in your life, do pray about it and share it with wise Counsellors for their mature wisdom.

What follows is a short Journaling time I had with the Lord.

“There is a broken bough in a wooded area that makes a perfect resting place. I sit there some mornings gathering my energy for the walk back up the hill towards home. It is my imaginary ‘Garden of Eden’ – a beautiful plateau on the south side of Bath where I live.

One morning I sat there with an old penknife I’d found from my childhood. Strewn all around were dried branches and twigs, and feeling the Lords prompting, I selected a twig so that I might fashion it into an arrow.

The phrase ‘Whittling Stick’ came to mind as I sliced away dried flakes of bark from the twig:

“Whittle away the old dry wood. Make it straight and narrow with a good sharp point”, spoke the Lord to my heart, as though reciting the words of a song.

I repeated the words as I cut away all the bark and smoothed the twig to a long sharp point. Rolling it between my fingers for balance, I then looked down the stem towards an imaginary target in the distance. Yes, it truly was a fine stick, and could well be used as an arrow.

Pleased with my efforts, I asked the Lord what he thought about my stick. His reply came softly to my heart.

“Now you can see what I’m doing with my people”, he began, “I’m fashioning them in My love so that they might serve Me more effectively… I’m removing the dead wood outer layers of self-reliance and I’m straightening the kinks and bumps of sin. I’m smoothing the rough edges of personality problems, and finally, I’m bringing them to a good sharp point so that when I do aim them at My target, they won’t miss! And yes, like you, I am also well pleased with My efforts”.

Scripture Reading:

“He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into water springs. And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation; And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase. He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease” Psalm 107: 35 – 38

Prayer for Healing

medium_421521420“I know Jesus is alive. I believe in the Bible. God cannot lie.

God’s Word say’s that Jesus took my sickness on the Cross and He healed me. I now choose to take my healing by faith.

In Jesus name I will fight in prayer and in the Word of God until I am healed! Healing is the children’s bread and I take it now.

I command you Devil – get out of my life, my home, my family; and in Jesus’ name I defeat you.”

I live in victory until Jesus comes Amen”

Hidden with Christ.

The Key to Relationship with God.

images-2Many years ago I asked my Bank Manager if I could deposit a small collection of Gold Coins in to their Safe.

There was a small fee involved but well worth it compared to the cost of losing the collection.

I asked the man at the Bank how they hid treasured items, such as my small collection of coins. He began to reassure me that the coins would be perfectly safe in the care of the Bank, (not that I was in any way doubting him.) He continued to enlighten me as to how they store precious items in the Safe. Apparently what they do is to put the precious items into a locked drawer within the Safe – (be it jewelry, documents or whatever); which would itself be locked inside a drawer; all of which would be further protected in the bolted Safe.

Pretty safe I’d say! In fact just like your highly protected relationship with God the Father.

How to be Free From Christian Regrets

“… forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead…” Failure!

The Christian life is forever forward-looking. And yet so many of us are crippled by past hurts, disappointments and regrets.

Stuck!

The consequences of this dilema is that we are no longer able to fulfill the second part of this well-known Scripture: “… I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus..” (Philippians 3:14)

The ‘Prize’ is God’s call upon our life ‘In Christ Jesus’. It is a calling far higher than we would ever imagine! (Especially when so many of us are dealing with regrets, disappointments and failures).

And yet God can, and will, restore the wasted years and the missed opportunities. We only need to give Him our faith, based upon His promises, and then rest in Him.

Relationship with God

Fulness of Life

God did not leave Mankind Fatherless!

Just like you would not leave your own son or daughter without a father, neither would God.

In order, though, to have a relationship with God the Father we need to be completely without sin; which of course is impossible due to the effects of the ‘Fall and the Curse!

We have all sinned! God is Holy, and there is no sin in Him whatsoever.

In order to come into His presence we need to be without sin.

To rectify this situation God the Father provided a means by which, we, Mankind can be reconciled to God Himself.

What is required is the death of a Human Being as punishment for mans sin.

Not just any Human Being, but a Human without sin!

And God sent His ownly sin-less Son to become sin for us.

His name is Jesus, who willingly went to the Alter of Sacfifice, the Cross, to die for us on our behalf.

images-1On that Alter, all of Man’s sin came upon Him and He died, so that anyone who makes Him their Lord and Savour are forgiven by God and are welcomed into His presence.

This is how Relationship with God is restored.

Prayer for Healing


My experience with prayer for healing in the Body of Christ is that increasingly the Prayer Team are giving the person a Prophetic Word rather than praying Fulness of Life In Christaccording to Scripture.

The Prophetic Word may go something like this: “I see you as a new-born baby lamb, filled with the joy’s of Spring time.” which is really lovely and indeed very encouraging, but I wonder if a better word – one which the Bible calls...” a more sure word of prophecy’ (2 Peter;19 ) would go something like this:

“He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24

Prophetic Worship Songs

Prophetic Worship Songs

I have often wondered what King David would have done when he picked up his harp to worship. Perhaps he would have sung a selection of popular songs of the day, some of which he may well have written himself – tirelessly honing the melody and lyrics – carefully fashioning the message until he knew the Heart of God’s purpose was honoured.”

Final25psalms-1117370-sOr maybe ( and this is my personal favourite version) he would have looked to Heaven and begin singing what He heard and saw in the Spirit – by faith. Pictures would have fired his imagination, words, and whole portions of The Torah he would have repeated – ‘chapter and verse.’

In due course, I imagine he would have fixed upon a ‘good theme’ and begun turning it into a brand new Psalm, perhaps to be filed away for a future occasion. Somehow though, I can’t imagine him staying fixed upon one theme for too long – there is always a new ‘word’ and a new song to be written.

And this is my point: In the Body of Christ I’m wondering whether it’s time for something new in our corporate worship. A new way of expressing our thanks, and a willingness to invite, hear and reflect back what we hear and see in the Spirit. Gone are the cliched expressions in our worship. “Behold I am doing a new thing…” (Isaiah 43:19) say’s the Lord

It is faith that pleases God, not our routines nor even our skilfulness. It is a belief that Godimages is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him – by faith. I believe it is no longer about singing songs alone, but about covenanting with the very heart of God. It is about believing and expecting God to respond to our prophetic songs, pictures, art and dance. It is about Relationship! God speaking to us and us speaking to God!

After all it doesn’t require too much faith to sing a worship song but it does require faith to establish a two way conversation with God the Father.

So, let the true worshippers arise, both in corporate meetings and in our personal times of devotion and expect Heaven to respond!

 

Jesus is Lord

The ‘Enemy’ of our soul is very active this time of year; what with all the New Year Resolutions, Festivities and positive confessions.

800px-Sunrise-Daytona-Beach-FLSatan doesn’t like it one bit!

He will do all He can to discourage us Believers at this time. He will try lull us into disappointment now the ‘Sales’ are over, the parties long gone and the cold, dark nights kick in!

So what was all the joy and merriment about? For us Christian believers it was about God sending His only begotten Son, Jesus the Christ, into this World that He might destroy the works of the Devil! (1 John 3:8)

This is the the truth we Christians can celebrate every day of our lives. Satan is defeated and Jesus is Lord!

It is the truth that makes us free…

the peace that passes understanding…

It is the joy that is our strength…

the blessing of the Lord that makes rich and adds no sorry with it.

And in His Name, by faith in His Name, the heavy clouds of Winter are dispersed and the light of His countenance shines brightly in our hearts.

Grace

On Wings as Eagles

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

If
you are wondering what are God’s plans for your life and how to activate them, then let us go a little higher in our understanding of the Word of God and see our lives from God’s point of view; in fact, let us go from where the ‘Eagles Soar!’

God gave us the example of ‘Eagles Soaring’ because this is the place of effortless momentum; a place of power, strength and success. In fact, all the Eagle has done is to yield to the forces of nature already established by God. All the Eagle needs to do is to soar!

Our first clue to an overcoming Christian Life, is to take advantage of the God-given power already made available to us in the Spiritual atmosphere. This power, the Power of God, is found in Christ Jesus alone – according to God’s Word. Father God has already released all the Spiritual elements we will ever need. Jesus has connected us to the Power of God through faith in His Word alone. This is Grace.

Here are some ‘up-lifting’ promisses of God made available to you, by Grace, that you might prosper and have good success in everything you turn your hands to.

Psalm 34:18 ESV “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit

Jeremiah 30:17 ESV / “For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, declares the Lord, because they have called you an outcast: ‘It is Zion, for whom no one cares!’

Psalm 142:7 ESV / “Bring me out of prison, that I may give thanks to your name! The righteous will surround me, for you will deal bountifully with me.

Psalm 51:6 ESV / “Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.

Acts 10:38 ESV / “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.
