Grace For Healing
God wants you well
do not be conformed

The Bible asks us to NOT be conformed to the pattern of this world’s thinking.

Today we look at the 4 main areas that keep us stuck in our thinking whilst on a healing journey. I believe the woman with the issue of blood needed to change her thinking in these areas in order to receive her healing.

  1. Self-righteousness
  2. Not knowing God’s love
  3. Condemnation
  4. Victimhood

I pray this post will help you identify if any of these areas are keeping you stuck a little as you believe God for healing.

father's heart

If I were to support someone on a healing journey, I would always start by checking how they experience the Father’s heart. 

“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 the Father’s heart intimately are not the same.

One is cognitive, the other experiential.

sabbath healing

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.

faith in man

Today’s post is about how we can determine if our faith is in God or man?

We can have faith in man on 3 levels when believing God for healing.

  • Faith in medicine
  • Faith in the church
  • Faith in self

There can be a very fine line because we need to have faith filled Christians around us and often God does use medicine. It’s also easy to have faith in our faith!

I hope by the end of this post, you’ll be more aware of the danger of trusting in the wrong thing and how easy it is to do.

God's acceptance

The story of Naaman shows us that God’s acceptance heals your shame. 

Today we look at the relationship between God’s acceptance and shame. Then I’ll offer 5 steps to help you apply this learning to your own life.

So let’s look at shame:

In my last post I shared of how, as a young girl, I was ashamed of my freckles. They made me different from my friends. In fact on one occasion a girl in my class at school, called me ‘Heinze baked beans face’. I was crushed. 

The feeling of disgust towards a part of me arose. I tried everything to hide them, get rid of them or cover them up.

do you feel ashamed of your illness?

God knows the healing you need because He looks at the heart.

Today we’re going to look at shame which I believe is often the root cause of our inauthenticity. I’m going to suggest 3 possible masks you might be wearing to cover up your shame.

Mind-Body doctor Gabor Mate says the inauthenticity causes disease. So I pray that as you read this, you’ll develop a greater understanding of how shame shows up in your life and how it hinders healing.

does god heal unbelievers?

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?

lessons from the story of naaman

Today I begin a new series on the lessons from the story of Naaman; the most well known healing in the Old Testament. 

This post will help you recognise pride, how it enters our lives and and hinders healing. You’ll also learn the 2 cures to pride so you can start allowing God to work in this area.

I’ve seen with my clients that pride is so unconscious, most people assume they don’t have it but, If you’re believing God for a healing, it’s worth considering if pride is hindering your healing journey.

Now back to Naaman:

Naaman knew he had leprosy but God saw his heart. He had a pride issue.

healing power of the holy communion

Does the communion bread heal your body? Today I look at the healing power of the Holy Communion

Surely a small piece of bread cannot possibly heal an incurable illness?

I mean, it would be completely wonderful but it really does sound quite far fetched and almost too good to be true, doesn’t it?
