Our Words Are Powerful

When I first became unwell I would speak words of defeat all the time. “If God was going to heal me, he would have done it by now……my life has been destroyed…….I’m going to be in pain forever…” and so on. I basically just said what I was thinking and feeling so the people around would know how bad the situation was and the impact it was having on me. At this point I had no idea I was feeding the illness and delaying the healing. When we speak toxic thoughts (anything that is against the Word of God), those words reinforce the problem.  (more…)

Confused as to why your healing hasn’t happened yet? We can’t really explore God’s healing without first discussing the ways in which God heals. Failure to understand this will add to the mystery and confusion of the ‘waiting’ period. How many times do we request something of God, but then become disheartened when God hasn’t provided the way we suppose he will. Could it be that God wants you to receive your healing in a way that opposes and challenges your assumptions? Here are the 4 ways that God heals us: (more…)

If you had the power to take away your child’s illness, would you do it? 

The Divine Exchange

When I had a sickness as a child, my mother would always say ‘I wish I could have it instead of you’. How many of you have said that to your own children? Such is the love of a parent, willing to do anything, even exchange places, to spare their child from pain. Of course my mother was powerless to change places with me. Jesus however is all powerful and this is exactly what happened on the cross. Healing is part of the Atonement, part of the divine exchange. This proves his willingness and his heart to heal those he loves.  (more…)

If you could ask God for just one thing, what would it be? God appeared to Soloman in a dream and asked him this very question. I wonder what he would answer if he only had 6 months to live or if he’d been ill for many years? Would he have asked for healing instead?

Today we’re going to look at how wisdom is the key to our healing. 

“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom.” Pro 4:7

Praying for healing is not our principle thing, it’s wisdom! When we’re ill, we need God’s wisdom more than anything else! Even if Soloman had been very unwell, asking for wisdom was still the higher choice. (more…)

Healing has no shortcut

When I was at University I was the Queen of shortcuts! I was studying for a German degree, so reading the English translations of set texts was the ‘shortcut’ for me. So much quicker than reading in German!! Yes I know it defeats the purpose, but it meant I could read the book in a much speedier way! giving me more time to do what I wanted.

Let’s admit it, there are times in all of our lives, especially where healing is concerned, where we want the quick MacDonld’s fix. We want someone to lay hands on us so we can instantly see the physical results in our bodies. This is wanting the shortcut and it’s not always God’s best for us. Healing has no shortcut; there is a hidden formula in Scripture we just can’t ignore. A formula which takes time….. (more…)
