I am Healed through Jesus!

Jesus took the blame and the shame for my sins – on my behalf! He died for me, the death that I should have died – such were my sins!

But how I have struggled with this truth. It’s like being handed an incredibly expensive luxury vehicle free of charge (An Aston Martin please Lord!) which is a totally unearned, undeserved and an unexpected favour. ‘A Gift out of the blue!’ You might say.

So when it comes to my body being sick, can I really accent the gift of Jesus’ atoning work on the Cross?  Jesus Himself took my sickness upon Himself? On my behalf.

There’s no way I can accept it Unless… I renew my mind to the truth that makes me free!

I need to meditate in my heart upon the truth. I begin to ‘see’ in my heart the promise of God’s healing grace working in my body.

The Bible tells us – ‘For as he thinks in his heart so is he..’ (Prov.23:7)

The imagination has a powerful role in bringing forth God’s promises of Grace, through faith in Jesus, the Word.

Imagine that!

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!

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”

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.

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

The Promises of God

Christian LIfe Coaching is about taking God at His Word; doing what He say’s we can do; and believing Him for what He has promised.

If He promises anything in His Word then we have a right to believe and receive it, by faith in our lives. If it be His will in Heaven then it is His will on Earth.

677px-ErdbeerkuchenSomewhere in the Bible there is a promise from God to meet your every need.

If, for example, you are in need of healing in your body; by faith in the finished work of the Cross of Calvary Jesus has taken upon Himself all our sickness and diseases “ – by whose stripes you were healed.” (Scrip: 1 Peter 24)

But you say: ‘I’ve tried all that prayer for healing thing! I’ve had people pray for me from all corners of the World and yet I’m still ill! I’ve had people prophesy over me; I’ve even felt better on occasions. I have healing scriptures in front of me day and night; and I use them as a weapon against the Devil!”

That’s truly great! God has certainly heard your prayer’s and has read your petitions. It isn’t that He is ignoring you. He truly wants you well. So what are we to do…?

Let me tell you about my own healing journey concerning CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). I’ve come to recognise there is a small but crucial truth to understand. And that is: Prayer, in itself, does not heal! It is Faith that heals!

It is having faith in what Jesus Christ has already done for us at the Cross of Calvary. At the Cross He took upon Himself all our sins and the effects of sin, such as sickness and disease: “Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows … And by His stripes we are healed.” (Scrip. Isaiah 53:5)

We need to know it in our Heart!

Jesus is now alive and is living in our heart’s by faith. ‘In Him’ we are new creations; saved by grace. And just like Jesus, we don’t get ill!

When we know this truth in our hearts, by faith, then the truth of the Gospel of grace will make us free. But, you may ask, why does the heart need to be involved? It’s my leg that hurts! The answer is that: ‘The heart drives our life!’ What we believe in our heart is what we manifest in our life:” For as a he thinks in his heart, so is he.” (Prov 23:7)

We are totally reliant upon Christ’s resurrection power in our life – by faith! For… “In Christ I am delivered from my destructions and healed of my diseases.” This is the Truth that makes us free.

Rebuilding your life with chronic illness begins by seeking God. Learn other ways you can help manage chronic pain or illness.

MomA diagnosis of chronic illness can bring with it feelings of denial, anger and grief. But, at some point, the emotions subside and you are faced with a harsh reality—you are no longer the person you once were. Chronic illness has robbed you from your sense of identity and purpose. Do you even stand a chance of rebuilding a meaningful life?

According to Judy Gann—a breast cancer survivor who suffers from fibromyalgia and other autoimmune disorders—you can. She took her experiences of living with chronic illness and her desire to comfort others and wrote The God of all Comfort: Devotions of Hope for Those Who Chronically Suffer.

“God has transformed a shy, quiet woman into one who shares His comfort and hope with chronic illness support groups throughout the United States,” she says.

Mari Eronen discovered her “creative side,” after reducing her work hours due to complications from Type 1 Diabetes.

“The part-time work hours may be a drain on finances, but they are definitely enriching my quality of life!”

Judy and Mari have rediscovered joy and purpose in their lives, and they are not alone. Many with chronic illness have rebuilt their lives and have gone on to launch new ministries, careers and friendships. Others have developed gifts and talents they never knew they had.

Making this life transition yourself can be easier if you know how other sufferers of a chronic illness dealt with it. The key is to keep it in perspective.

“Rebuilding or redefining normal is a long process,” explains Georgia Shaffer, a psychologist, professional speaker and life coach. “It can take years.”

Given just a 2 percent chance to live in 1989 after a recurrence of breast cancer, Georgia lost her job because she was too weak to work, and her husband walked out on her. After piecing her shattered life back together, she wrote A Gift of Mourning Glories—Restoring Your Life After Loss, to serve as a guidebook to help others rebuild their lives.

Tips for Rebuilding Your Life

Here are a few of her suggestions:

  • Seek God through prayer, His Word and the counsel of others. Finding meaning and purpose in your life is critical for your spiritual and emotional health. In prayer, ask God to reveal His purpose for this season of your life. Invite others’ input and don’t be afraid to step out and try new things. Have you always wanted to take an art class? Write a book? Now might be the perfect time to start.
  • Ask important questions like, “What am I passionate about?” “What in my life can I share with others?” We sometimes abandon our “passions” for adult responsibilities. Think back to your youth and what you enjoyed doing. Rediscover your gifts and talents. Although your chronic illness may keep you from coaching your son’s soccer team, maybe you can use your photography skills to capture those winning moments. Be creative.
  • Take calculated risks. Rebuilding your life requires that you explore unchartered territory. Sure, it might be scary to head back to college at age 35, but why not give it a shot? While you may not succeed at everything you try, the experiences will enrich your life and give you something to talk about besides your illness.
  • Eliminate toxic relationships from your life. Few things are more draining than dysfunctional relationships. People who consistently blame you for their problems, criticize your choices and discount your feelings are toxic. If being in someone’s company continually drains you, it might be a sign of an unhealthy relationship. Learn to establish healthy boundaries.
  • Forgive those who fail you. Over time, your friends will fail you, co-workers will fail you—even your church will fail you. Forgive them and move on.
  • Learn to choose between “best” and “good.” Your physical and emotional resources will limit your choices. Determine who and what adds meaning to your life and invest in those relationships and activities. Not sure? Ask a friend. A fresh perspective may be just what you need.
  • Share your gifts and talents. Those who suffer have a lot to contribute. It is critical to look for ways to share your gifts and talents with others in your church and the community.

Rebuilding your life while living with a chronic illness can seem like a daunting task. Take heart. With a little knowledge, creativity and encouragement from others, you can live well with chronic illness.

Just remember that God has a plan and purpose for your life, and he will lead you each step of the way.

Transformed Living

  • Important clues about our life purpose often surface during childhood. Recall what you loved to do as a child. How can you re-introduce these passions to your life now?
  • What are your spiritual gifts and strengths? How can you begin moving more in those areas?

Personality inventories like the MBTI are helpful when rebuilding your life after a diagnosis of chronic illness. For more information about this assessments and others, contact me today.

Prayer for Healing

origin_266023763-1

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.

I am a qualified Christian Life Coach and will help keep you stay on-track’ in seeking and retaining your healing. If you need help, why not contact me now for a FREE Introductory Coaching Session.

Christian Healing for CFS

Geoffrey Booth
I’d like to share with you where I’m at with my Christian Healing related to CFS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or M.E.

Rather than dwell on the disease, I have ‘painted a picture’ in my heart of who I am according to what God says about me in His Word.

No, this is not New Age psycho-babble; but Scriptural. Please stick with me.

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success…” (Joshua 1:8)

The word ‘meditate’ involves imagining or dwelling in my heart inwardly. It is, in effect, visualising what God says about me is true: Who I am, What I can do, and How much He loves me. This is Hope!

The Bible tells me that: “For as he thinks in his heart so is he.” This word ‘thinks’ refers, again, to dwelling upon, visualising or imagining – by grace through faith in Christ Jesus.

I guess I could say it has taken years of imagining fears, hurts, and bitterness in my own life – maybe in the generations too (the effects of sin and the Fall) resulting in sickness and disease. It stands a good chance it will take time to change it.

But as the above Scripture tells me, as I do meditate (or imagine) in my heart upon what God says about me, then the ‘picture’ on the inside changes from sickness to prosperity. So that, from out of my heart-believing prosperity I will have good success on the outside. In other words, it’s an inside-out job; God’s life in; God’s life out!

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,” (Hebrews 11:1)

Hope refers, again, to dwelling upon inwardly: visualising or imagining. I am to cast down imaginations that do not conform to what God say’s about me and to replace them with His thoughts towards me: thoughts of peace: to give me a hope and a future.

It takes hope first for faith to work – faith working by love.

Meanwhile, I refuse evil imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. And, as the Bible says, my healing shall spring forth speedily! Thus, it is very important how I see myself.

Yes, I would love an instant healing; I’ve had wonderful touches from the Lord that sustains me and I will continue seeking prayer for healing.

But something tells me that this is a ‘self-coaching’ job involving appropriating Scripture in my heart before seeing it on the outside. And meanwhile, as a concequence, it’s amazing what God is doing to set me free in other areas of my life. Maybe this is all part of my healing!
