Grace For Healing
God wants you well

The Tree of Life speaks of Jesus; the more we take from this tree, we increase our capacity to receive healing. Unfortunately it’s so easy to end up taking from the tree of knowledge of good and evil instead.

Healing is right the way through the Bible, beginning in the garden of Eden. I hope today’s insights will give revelation and cause you to ponder on any areas which may be keeping you stuck.

Have you ever told your body parts how amazing they are? If you have a diseased part of your body then Learning to speak life over yourself could be just the medicine you need.

Japenese scientist Masaru Emoto proved the power of our words by conducting a water experiment where he took samples of tap water and spoke to them.

One sample he spoke words of life ‘you’re beautiful, I’m grateful for you, you’re amazing….’ and another sample he spoke words like ‘you disgust me, I hate you…’

He then photographed the samples and guess what happened? 

The samples where he had spoken loving words to looked like beautiful diamonds or snowflakes under the microscope and the samples where he had spoken hateful or words of death to looked dirty and ugly under the microscope.

double for your trouble

When I was around 6 years old, I split my chin open. Whilst I don’t remember this much, I do remember mum taking me to the toyshop afterwards. She wanted to give me double for my trouble.

In fact, every time I had to get the wound redressed by the nurse in the weeks that followed, we came home via the toyshop.

My mum, like most parents, wanted to bless me generously to make up for the pain the injury had caused.

Our Father in Heaven wants to make up for all our trouble here on earth. He promises that there will be a benefit and that we’ll be better off as a result of the trouble.

Isn’t it interesting that I genuinely have little memory of the accident but plenty of memories about the toyshop!

There are times when I am filled with terror and horror, it’s the only way I can describe it. Breathing becomes heavy and deliberate and my heart races yet the sensations in my chest or abdomen are so dense I can barely move.

Does this sound familiar?

Experts call this the dorsal shut down state of Freeze. Polyvagal expert Deb Dana says ‘we cannot think our way to safety’ It’s an embodied experience and can’t be healed cognitively.

Thankfully the power of the Word of God is spiritual, “piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow…” 

To bring me back down to that place of peace, I’ve learned to see Jesus as my Good Shepherd. Have you ever wondered why healing the the Shepherd appear together in Scripture?

loss and grief

Loss and grief have to be the most painful experiences I have ever had; you know that deep hole you feel when someone or something so incredibly priceless is missing from life?

Thankfully as Christians, there is a beautiful and comforting benefit in store for us whenever we feel we’ve been robbed. 

For me, coping with illness was only part of the problem. Underneath the physical was the torment of going through life alone with no family, the loss of career, finances, holidays, ability to walk and even sit…I felt like loss was my cruel companion.

The life that was once ahead of me no longer existed. 

Today I wanted to share with you, the one thing that has kept me going throughout all these years of pain: God’s promises of double restoration

If you don’t understand why the Bible quotes ‘Life and death is in the power of the tongue’ and the link this has to healing, then this post will really bless you. 

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.

Have you ever spoken out words like that?

This was my truth at the time. 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 which delays the healing.

What do you speak out in those moments of distress? Do you say exactly what is in your heart at that moment?

It might be because, like me, you’re just not aware of the impact those words have on your body.

They actually reinforce the problem.

Most agree that God heals today but we never hear mention of the different ways in which God heals. 

I remember hearing of a miracle healing. I was so excited to hear of such a testimony as this is what I so desperately needed.

My excitement soon turned to hurt and disappointment. You see, the person who claimed the miracle, went through a series of medical interventions. Without medicine, she would no doubt be dead.

Unfortunately, there are health conditions and illnesses which doctors cannot treat, and I had one of them.

‘Where was my healing? This story doesn’t encourage me much…’ You see, I need a miracle outside of doctors.

Have you found that healings are not the same? Are you in a similar situation to me?

god's will to heal

At the beginning of my healing journey, I doubted God’s will all the time. I couldn’t understand why, when I had prayed, fasted, spoken the Word over myself…and so on, that I was actually getting worse.

I came to the conclusion that it just isn’t God’s will to heal me.

If you’ve been unwell for many years, it’s understandable if you’re thinking this too. You’re praying, believing, speaking the Word over yourself yet you’re not seeing results. 

Now you’re settling that it’s just not God’s will.

If you’ve been chronically ill for a long time, you may be familiar with the silence of God and wondering if he has forgotten you. I remember experiencing this myself. Watching everyone else live whilst my life had ‘stopped’.

Praying and believing for breakthrough which just didn’t come…the months turned into years. Was God answering everyone else’s prayers? Why was He silent?

The waiting caused as much hurt and confusion as the illness itself. Where was my healing?

I imagine you may be feeling similar? Do you feel as though you’re spectating life, watching everyone else live the abundant life whilst you’re struggling trying to survive as best you can.

Maybe you also feeling robbed of the joy and pleasures you thought you’d experience. Have you ever cried “Where is God?” because God seems silent.

In this post I wanted to share with you why your healing is taking a long time to manifest…and it’s all good.

god's wisdom

If you’ve never asked for Godly wisdom when praying for healing, then this post will show you why wisdom is the primary thing to pray for. 

If you could only ask God for one thing, what would it be? At the beginning of my healing journey, I would ask God for healing. At this point, I didn’t really know what else I should be praying for.

Healing was the one thing I so desperately wanted. Is healing your main prayer? 

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? What would you ask for?
