Today the Lord brought me a message of healing to share with you.
Not just healing of our physical ills, weaknesses or pain. But healing of the Whole. And in this season of rebirth, this verse keeps popping into my mind…
4 Surely He took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered Him punished by God, stricken by Him, and afflicted.
5 But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.
Read that again…AND BY HIS WOUNDS WE ARE HEALED. The Cross was all about forgiveness of ALL sins and health and healing to our bodies.
Isn’t that the most glorious revelation? Through His suffering, through His wounds, through all that He endured…we are healed!
Jesus performed healing as part of His teachings. His Disciples healed others as they continued to spread His word. The Bible speaks of healing acts over and over again.
But you know what? When I talk to others about the power of healing, I often get back, “Those types of miracles just don’t happen anymore.”
What? Well, I call BS! Nowhere in the Bible does it state that the miracle of healing had an expiration date! And thank the Lord…because I know that there is such a need for healing in our world!
We all face pain. The enemy attacks us from the earliest of age…not just physical abuse or illnesses, but trauma that leave marks on our mind…on our souls. You may not remember, but your body never forgets. So what happens is they actually “leave their body”, they are no longer connected to their soul and spirit, and walk around anxious and full of worry and in fear. We want to get you BACK in your body.
Your body keeps score. It never forgets. As life progresses on, we retain those scars from these traumatic events. And these memories held by our body manifest into physical and mental illnesses; as well as so many of life’s addictions.
Traditional therapies and medications do help. But the problem here is that these approaches only address the outward symptoms and NEVER address the source…our body’s memories and manifestations of the original traumas.
After all…it is about our Whole – our mind, body and spirit. When any one of these three pieces of our Whole are damaged, hurt, scarred or in pain…the other two will suffer.
I’ve seen it in my own life. Twice in just 2 years… my lingering judgments of others, my own “daddy issues” and resentment in some of my closest relationships were dark scars on my spirit. And as we know…when one aspect of the Whole is damaged…the other two aspects WILL be affected.
In my case, these thoughts and judgments showed their ugliness in my body in a pretty physical and literal way; when I was put down by illness so strong that I truly thought I may not ever make it back.
But the good news? Jesus still heals today!
And just as The Enemy can bring on these thoughts and doubts that scar our spirits, so can the Lord, God, bring about healing through our own will and through those He has brought into our lives.
It was with the acceptance of this Gift of healing, that I began my journey back to health.
If only we could all accept this most wondrous gift….oh what a different world we could share!
I believe that we CAN have that world. And it all starts with US.
We must take those critical steps along the path of healing. Accept His healing power and our gift to wield this power on ourselves and others. TO BE HIS LIGHT IN THIS DARK WORLD!
We were designed in God’s image…beautiful and wonderful. He wants us to live an abundant, joyful and loving life. And the most beautiful thing is that God does not expect you to walk this journey on your own.
You have Him with you always, and He has brought an amazing tribe of women together to grab you by the hand and walk along this healing path beside you.
Here is your next step on this journey…
The Women at the Well have a wonderful night of healing scheduled for May 25th. We will be learning several tools that can help you take a few more steps on your healing journey.
