demolish strongholds

In today’s post, we look at how to demolish those strongholds that are holding us back from our healing.

I will define what strongholds are and how we develop them. Then I’ll speak on how I demolish destructive strongholds in 5 simple steps.

We learn through repetition. How many times do you find yourself singing along to your favourite song on the radio.

Chances are, you will have heard it many times, now all the words are hardwired into your system.

Unfortunately we can also repeat unhealthy or toxic thoughts, or strongholds, into our brains as well.

It’s as though they’re stuck on repeat; the rumination becomes 2nd nature as those thoughts become hardwired.

the meaning of bartimaeus

The meaning of Bartimaeus is ‘Son of Honour’. Jesus healing blind Bartimaeus suggests that honouring God opens the door to healing.

Today I give you 5 ways in which we can instantly increase honour towards God.

I don’t think you can receive a healing from God without honour. In his book, ‘The Honour Key’ Ps Russel Evans says this about the lifestyle of Jesus.

‘Every miracle, every breakthrough…….happened when people honored what he carried…..or honored who He was’

I remember listening to a John Bevere teaching on honour. He points out that there are far more healings and breakthroughs in Africa than in our Western countries, because of honour.

When Africans listen to the Word from a preacher, they are on the edge of their seats, captivated by what God is saying.

They understand the meaning of honour, just like Bartimaeus in our series.

the story of Bartimaeus

The healing of Bartimaeus shows us how people pleasing can stop our healing. I love that Bartimaeus had enough shameless faith to ignore the crowds and pursue Jesus.

Today we take a brief look at the area of people-pleasing and how destructive it is for those who need healing.

Namely because people pleasers unconsciously put the voice and opinions of others above God’s.

People pleasers don’t fully accept who God has called them to be

When I trained in counselling, I was surprised to discover just how much of a people pleaser I was and how my whole life was rooted in shame.

God says you are worthy

God says you are worthy. You have to fully believe this in order to receive a healing.

Today’s post is about the relationship between self esteem and healing. The story of blind Bartimaeus shows us that how we see ourself matters if we are to receive healing.

By reading this post, I’ll suggest the main causes of low self esteem and why this hinders healing. I then give you 7 actionable steps you can take that will support you in your self-esteem journey. 

Let’s dive in:

Have you noticed, that in every community, there is always the ‘in’ crowd. You know, those who tick the right boxes.

Then there’s those who feel like a square peg in a round hole.

pick up your mat

When Jesus tells the paralyzed man to ‘pick up your mat and walk’, he is instructing him to be the head and not the tail.

When we’re paralyzed, we are

  • at the mercy of our disability
  • dependant upon others
  • we tolerate the situation

I believe God wants us to allow the Spirit in us to be in control whilst you journey through chronic illness. Oftentimes however, our survival skills and coping strategies run the show. 

We surrender our empowerment

healing at the pool of Bethesda

The healing at the pool of bethesda teaches us how to position our hearts for a miracle healing.

Today we look at the area of victimhood and how this hinders healing. I’ll suggest 5 ways in which we can easily shift from victim to victor.

This poor man had suffered for 38 years which caused him to spiral down into pity. His eyes were on the severity of his situation. He was closed to any forward thinking. (In all honesty, I think I’d be exactly the same.)

Can you identify with this?

meaning of bethesda

The meaning of Bethesda is House of Mercy.

I believe the Holy Spirt is telling us though the story of the lame man healed at the pool of Bethesda, that if we want a healing, we find it in the house of God, the Church.

Today I will show you 5 reasons why healing is found in the Church.

I’ve been in church nearly my whole life. In the past 20 years of my (healing) journey, I have learned to make God’s house foundational, despite feelings and experiences.

what does faith without works mean?

The Bible tells us that ‘faith without works is dead’. James 2:26

The leper had faith that Jesus was a good God who could heal him and this caused him to move forward despite his physical limitations and mental strongholds.

He had faith with works.

Today’s post we look at how to have faith with works on our healing journey. It’s easy to just pray and pray in the hope that God will heal (This is faith without works) but I believe God empowers us by His Spirit to move forward before we receive the healing.

how to trust god's promises

Are you standing on God’s promises or just simply praying, waiting for your situation to change?

In today’s post I’d like to emphasise why we still need to meditate on Scripture whilst believing God for our health to change and not fall into the trap of praying and just hoping. 

It’s easy to pray and pray, passively waiting for healing, but Andrew Wommack says praying without the Word is watering barron ground.  It’s impossible to pray with faith and expectancy outside of the Word. 

We know that ‘faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God’.
