Grace For Healing
God wants you well

I believe the Parable of the Sower explained in 3 of the Gospels, reveals why so many of us have yet to receive healing. Are you trusting in God for a healing breakthrough? Then I hope this helps…

If Jesus explained the Parable of the Sower 3 times, then it must surely be essential to our lives. Today, I’d like to talk about the parable in relation to our healing journey. 

I’ll also give 7 tips to help you as you plant God’s Word in your heart.

Matt 4:4 tells us we cannot live without the Word of God. 

Think about the things we cannot live without – oxygen, food, water……the Word of God is a basic need!

Pro 4:22 says that God’s word is “life . . . and health to all their flesh” which suggests that there is a relationship between physical healing and the Bible. 

“As you spend time in the Word of God, the Word is actually resuscitating and reviving your bodyJoseph Prince. I don’t know about you, but I want the Word to impact my physical body!

So let’s dive into the Parable of the Sower and how Jesus explained it to see how it relates to our healing.

as a man thinks in his heart

The Bible tells us that we think with our hearts. “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he” Pro 23:7 If you’re believing God for a healing, then using your spiritual eyes is a must.

Today’s post is about the use of our imagination and how, when used correctly, it can pre-requisite our healing.

If you find it difficult to allow yourself to dream, I will suggest some reasons why, and then I’ll give you 5 ideas on how to use your imagination in alignment with the Word of God.

Do forgiveness and healing go hand in hand?

Today I explore the relationship between forgiveness and healing. 

We understand the necessity of forgiving others, but what if we don’t? Will it hinder our healing?  Does it cause disease? 

I will then give 5 steps to implement to help us forgive when we are healing. 

As Christians, we know we are meant to forgive. God invites us to forgive those who wrong us, it’s even in the Lord’s prayer. But what happens to our bodies when we don’t?

the refiner's fire

Welcome to part 2 of The Refiner’s Fire

In the last post, we discussed whether the healing journey and the refiner’s fire are synonymous. I personally believe they are 2 separate things, yet with similarities.

(If you haven’t read the last post, please do so here.)

Today we look at the ways in which we can cooperate with God whilst either on a healing journey or going through the refiner’s fire.

Even if you are believing God for healing, you may still find yourself in the refiner’s fire.

I think it’s fair to say that if you’re journeying through chronic illness today, you probably feel you are in the furnace of affliction, otherwise known as the ‘refiner’s fire’. 

It is a common belief amongst Christians that ‘God is in control so allows sicknesses and tragedies to teach, discipline, grow and refine us.’

I used to subscribe to this thinking also.

However, as I continue along this journey, the more convinced I am that there are significant aspects to the refiner’s fire and the furnace of affliction which don’t, in my eyes, correlate to the healing journey.

Is complaining a sin?

Is complaining a sin?

After all, it seems so minor and we all do it.

The Israelites wandered for 40 years in the wilderness because of complaining which suggests that it is a sin

Now when the people complained, it displeased the LORD…” Num 11:1 

1 Cor 10 lists the reasons the Israelites failed to enter the Promised Land and grumbling and complaining was listed! (1 Cor 10:10)

None of us want to wander in the wilderness for the rest of our lives because we never learned to discipline ourselves in this area.

BENEFITS OF HUMILITY

During times of illness, it’s important to reap the benefits of humility. According to Deut 8:2 one of the key purposes of the Wilderness season is to develop this quality.

And you shall remember that the LORD your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.

Deut 8:2

God had a purpose for the Israelites in the Wilderness. He wanted them to learn humility. Today, I am exploring the concept of humility, in relation to the journey through illness.

Additionally, I will be discussing three key benefits of humility for those who are unwell, as well as outlining five methods for cultivating humility throughout the healing process.

Taking every thought captive seems impossible given the thousands of thoughts plaguing us each day.

For those that have traits of ADD, or those so dysregulated that living with scattered thoughts are the norm, how can we possibly take all our thoughts captive?

In today’s post, I explain why taking every thought captive is essential to healing, and will talk you through 5 simple steps I personally take when overcoming hindering thoughts.

There are numerous posts out there on taking thoughts captive, so I hope you hear something today that is fresh and a little different.

the 12 spies

The story of the 12 spies in the Bible teaches us how negative thinking patterns can keep us from God’s promises. I imagine the 12 spies were kind, loving and deserving of good things.

But they missed out because they had no control over their thinking distortions. It would be such a shame for you and I to miss out on healing because we failed to discipline our minds.

As a Christian, the renewed mind brings our thoughts in line with God’s. The 12 spies in the Bible (well, 10 of them anyway) allowed their thinking to go unchecked.

Today I consider the different types of thinking distortions the 12 spies had (because we have those same distortions), how they hinder our healing and how we can renew our minds to the truth of the Bible.

I hope you gain something fresh and useful to support you in your healing journey.

We often allow our minds to run riot with no boundaries. Can you imagine parenting a child with no guidelines or boundaries?
