I think you’ll agree that being patient in your affliction is challenging, especially if illness has continued for many years.
With God, how you wait matters and how you occupy this waiting time is significant.
I remember being at my wits end, even suicidal; the months were now years and still no breakthrough. I’m sure some of you can relate?
So today, I’m going to show you the 5 ways I introduced some kind of joy back into my life.
You don’t want to prolong this painful season more than is necessary so I invite you through this post to invest in good waiting habits that glorify God, ease frustration and invite transformation.
Today we consider Job’s infamous three friends; (let’s face it, we’ve all got them.)
You know, those ‘helpful’ Christians who tell you what you’ve done wrong in your life to cause suffering.
I will offer a deeper perspective as to why they behave in that way, and suggest 5 steps you can implement to guard your heart from their hurtful comments.
I had a woman in my life, who screened me for all my ‘shortcomings’. In her opinion, healing and obedience go hand in hand. ‘If God’s perfect, the problem is with you…’
It was wounding.
Today we look at the God’s perfect description of sickness, found in John 10:10: It is your enemy and has the sole purpose to kill, steal and destroy.
Do you feel robbed? This verse shows us that God is not the author of your suffering.
By reading this post, you’ll gain an understanding of the three descriptions that God gives sickness which will feed your faith for healing and eliminate any doubt that God wants you well.
Otherwise, you’ll believe one of the many myths: that God is waiting for you to deal with something…..God is teaching you a lesson or chastising you…etc’.
Today I wanted to share with you some teaching on the meaning of Paul’s thorn in the Flesh. The number of times I hear people assume that Paul had a sickness that God wouldn’t heal.
Today I prove, using the Bible, that this is inaccurate.
Paul’s thorn in the flesh was a person and not any kind of illness or disability.
If you think the meaning of Paul’s thorn in the flesh refers to sickness, you will always doubt God for your healing.
You probably wish ‘if only I could reach out and touch the hem of Jesus’ garment, then I would be miraculously healed’!
Today we look at the significance of the hem of Jesus’ garment and the secret meaning that lies within it. (You’ll never read this passage of Scripture in the same way again.)
In this post I reveal 4 tips based on the meaning of the hem of Jesus’ garment that we can apply to our healing journey.
You see, metaphorically speaking, the hem of Jesus’ garment is still healing today.
To set your face like flint means to be sold out to your cause.
If you want a miracle from God, this is the determination that gets results. In this post, you’ll receive 3 easy suggestions of how to do this if you want a breakthrough.
For those UK readers, if you as old as me you’ll remember the Hillsborough tragedy. 96 people killed during the FA Cup semi-final in 1998.
For 20 years following the incident, parents and families of the victims continued relentlessly in search for truth and justice.
Few people had faith stronger than the woman with the issue of blood; Jesus said “Daughter your faith has healed you”.
Today we’re going to look at 3 different types of faith so you can see which one you identify with:
- Inactive Faith
- Re-active Faith
- Proactive Faith
I do remember stressing many years ago, concerned that I didn’t have enough faith for healing. There are so many people around that say it’s lack of faith that stops God’s healing.
If I were to support someone on a healing journey, I would always start by checking if they experience God’s love.
“And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.” 1 john 4:16
You might be thinking ‘of course I know that God loves me’. But to know that God loves you, and to experience God’s love your heart are not the same.
One is cognitive, the other experiential.
Why did Jesus choose the day of rest, the Sabbath, for some of his healing miracles?
By the end of this post you’ll gain an understanding of why Jesus healed on the Sabbath and what this means for us as New Covenant believers.
You’ll also gain 5 tips for introducing the mindset of rest into your lifestyle which increases your capacity to receive a healing.
Jehovah Rapha is translated as ‘I am the Lord who heals you’. (Ex 15:26). The Hebrew word ‘rapha’ means both ‘to heal’ and also ‘relax’ thus putting resting and healing together.
Does God heal unbelievers or is this a privilege for Christians?
Perhaps you’re believing for a friend’s healing but you have doubts because he’s not a Christian as yet. I hope this post will encourage you in your faith as you stand in the gap for your friend.
Yes God does heal unbelievers!
Today we look at the example of Naaman, who worshipped a different God and so represents the world of unbelievers. God heals him from leprosy even though he isn’t an Israelite.
We’ll also look at how unbeliever’s receive healing so you’ll have a greater understanding the next time you pray for someone.
Does this mean that God will still heal unbelievers today?
