Pillar 1 Foundation of God’s Healing
There are hidden treasures in the Word of God revealing God’s healing. There’s nothing more thrilling than to see God’s healing running right the way through the Bible. “The Foundation for God’s Healing” pillar is the essential ‘nuts and bolts’ of the healing journey.
When I was unwell, I found it so frustrating that people were believing all sorts of different things when it came to healing. I didn’t know who to listen to or what to believe. I wanted answers, and the more questions I asked, the more confused I became.
The result of this irritation for me was to seek God’s healing for myself and not listen to the interpretations of others. I wonder if you are finding something similar?
I want this platform to exhibit what I believe God is saying through his Word and hope it will give you some clarity into an area that seems to bring with it much confusion.
I’ve called these healing foundations as I believe that they are fundamental to our healing journey because how well you rest in the finished work, is how well you navigate the wilderness season.
Having such a firm belief system in place will guarantee you’ll stay the course no matter how long it takes.
Pillar 2 MindBody Connection
When God designed us, he chose our minds and bodies to relate to each other, hence the mind-body connection. Neuroscientists, like Caroline Leaf, have been invaluable in explaining how traumas impact upon our bodies. In fact, the body is a reflection of the mind.
We can develop coping strategies, patterns of thinking and learned behaviours which often appear to us as ‘normal’, but results in our souls not prospering the way God intended.
There is now plenty of scientific evidence proving that adverse childhood experiences contribute to the onset of chronic illness. Trauma can become trapped in the body causing disease.
You may be praying for a physical issue, but often the problem is elsewhere so we can’t bypass this.
“Our souls are dismantled from birth and we must reassemble them as we age” Paul Scanlon
This category concerns the relationship between spirit, soul and body, the possible roots of disease and the cross-wiring of the limbic system. I explore the impact of trauma has on our bodies and the relationship between our authentic self and disease.
I also believe how healed we are, very much depends on how we connect with the world around us. Separation from others and even ourselves can impact us on a physical level.
There will hopefully be something in what I say that resonates with you that you can apply to your own healing journey.
Pillar 3 The Healing Journey
If you’re on a healing journey, you probably feel like you’re in the wilderness right now.
You may know God’s will, his nature and his Word, but you still have to confront the daily reality of symptoms, often impacting on your relationships, careers and other areas of your life. I’m sure you know exactly what I’m talking about.
How do we hold these 2 sides in tension?
Welcome to the Wilderness
God told Joshua he’d given him the land but the Israelites still had to progress forward and possess what was theirs. In the same way, the Bible is very clear, that healing is our inheritance, our land. Now we move forward.
You can do this and you can do this victoriously.
Receiving the instant miracle isn’t always God’s best, I’m sure that’s what you want more than anything. I was the same but I’ve come to understand the relevance, blessing and the wisdom of God as He heals progressively over time.
One of the biggest hindrances for those who have been ill for many years is the unconscious conditioning that causes limitations, comfort zones and ceilings.
I don’t claim to know it all or even be an expert, but if I can help you even just a little, then I have succeeded what I feel God is asking of me.
Imagine a life where this illness is a thing of the past. Think of how incredible your life will be. How awesome that God’s dream for your life is greater than this! I hope imagining that dream motivates you to press into all He has for you.
God wants you well, even more than you do.
I pray as you journey through this season and allow God’s Word to sink into your spirit, that you will increase your capacity to receive your healing. Nothing is impossible when we get in agreement with God.
