Grace For Healing
God wants you well
importance of testimony

The Bible teaches us the importance of sharing testimony of what God is doing in our lives. How is he providing for you? In what way does He answer your prayers

My friend Nicky and I often chat about movies. We love psychological thrillers and crime dramas with exciting and original story lines. If I watch something which is brilliant, I’ll send Nicky a txt to tell her the plot. I want her to enjoy watching it too.

Stories of what God does in our lives are called testimonies. I love to hear testimonies of healing because they motivate me to believe for my own breakthrough.

These stories are real;  so much better than Holywood!

legalistic thinking

We live in a culture and a society that encourages legalistic thinking.

We feel bad about ourselves when we don’t tick the right boxes. I know myself I can feel like a failure for not having a husband or children.

I know with many people with long term illness, there’s a condemnation if you’re unable to work or do the things that other people can do.

being rooted and grounded in love

Are you rooted and grounded in the love of Christ?

If I were to support someone on a healing journey, I would always start with the love of God.

“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 knowing that God loves you, and believing in your heart 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?

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.

Jesus heals on the Sabbath day, the day of rest 7 times, proving that to receive healing, we need to rest in the finished work.

Naaman healed of leprosy

Naaman was healed of leprosy in 2 Kings 5 NOT according to his own preconceived ideas. 

Are you expecting God to heal a certain way? I know I was. When I was first unwell all those years ago, there were many medical treatments for doctors to try. 

 I can’t remember now how many there were in total. It was something like 16 or 17, not including medications.

the sprit of shame

The Holy Spirit heals all our shame but it’s not automatic. 

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?

The story of Naaman is one of a man dominated by shame.

Outwardly he was this incredible leader with achievements and accolades which set him apart ‘But he had leprosy’.

He was so ashamed of it, hiding behind a mask became his way of escape.

When I was little, I was different to my friends who had blonde hair and blue eyes. My hair was curly and dark, plus I had freckles. Millions of them…and I hated them.

I made mum buy for me a pot of cream called ‘fade out’. I applied it liberally all over my face thinking my freckles would disappear. Of course they never did.

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.

Naaman was captain of the army of the king of Syria. He worshipped a different God, representing the world of unbeliever’s, yet God healed him. 

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. 

Naaman had leprosy, but God looks at the heart (1 Sam 16:7) and knew that Naaman needed a much deeper healing.

Naaman had a pride issue. He was the captain of the guard, good friends with the king, power, prestige, money…. He thought his accolades qualified him for healing.

get behind me satan

The Bible tells us to refute every tongue that rises against us.

Every tongue in this context is referring to damaging words, not people.

I recently heard of a story about a guy in the States who came across a rattle snake living under his couch. With no delay he reached for the necessary tools to remove it.
