Hi folks. I just want to start off by saying that the purpose of this blog post is to encourage you. I’m writing this piece believing that several of you need to hear this or be reminded of these truths. I have been growing in multiple ways and learning how powerful prayer is in the name of JESUS. Jesus has equipped us already with everything that we need by the power of His Spirit and part of my role as a daughter of His is to share the wisdom with y’all.
Some of you know already, but I’ve battled some hard things and my journey hasn’t been easy, but Jesus has already set me FREE of multiple things up until this point and more specifically this year. Sometimes the most we feel we can do during hardships is to get out of bed and try to go about the day with doing our best and if that’s you right now, that’s okay. With this being said, God does not want us getting too comfortable with only being okay. Why?! Jesus Christ wants us healed and well. He wants us walking in the Freedom that He already brought for us as result of Him dying on the cross for us. He was bound so that we could be FREE. Whom the son sets free is free indeed; John 8:36. This is how much He loves you, friend! He does not want us walking around on this earth with any sickness, pain, and/or disease. Heaven on earth is here now.
Jesus is a King of healing. He is the source of healing. I want to touch on something here that I believe comes into play with addiction. A lot of us are trying to find happiness or satisfaction in life, but the problem a lot of times is that we are looking in all the wrong places. I’ve been there and looking back now I can honestly say these habits were heightened the more entrenched I was in my addiction. These things did not satisfy me. I thought they would, but it was always never enough. Jesus Christ is the only one who can fill us up and make us whole. There was a point in time within the past few years where I believed I could fix myself. I thought I could get through my struggles alone and on my own. What deception. Ya see, deception comes in when we have a lack of knowledge. When we cannot see clearly because our lens is focused on the wrong things is when deception comes in. I’m so thankful to God now that He connected me with folks now that genuinely care about my well being and walk with Christ. When I was in the midst of my challenges and felt like I was drowning was the same point in which I learned to reach out to these folks I now call family. By reaching out, I mean contacting one of these folks (my family and supports) I knew I could both trust and see as safe people. I didn’t like it, but I had learned to reach out in the darkest of hours. Looking back now I can without a doubt say that these small steps aided in my healing process. We all need community in our life, especially when we have challenges going on. When I speak to community here, I am referring to the kind of community that knows the truth of God’s word. Safe people that are willing to cover you in prayer and be considerate of where you are in life. Only Jesus can bring us true healing that satisfies and makes us whole. I love how John Eckhardt speaks to healing when he says this; “Healing accompanies the Kingdom message. This is the kingdom age where you don’y have to be sick, broke, or run over by the devil. This is GOOD news”.
There are many accounts of Jesus’s healing in His word, but I want to touch on how Jesus healed many in the book of Matthew. Jesus was traveling throughout the region of Galilee and we see such a beautiful picture of His healing power here. Matthew 4:23-24; Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues,proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. 24 News about him spread all over Syria,and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and he healed them. Just like Jesus healed many here in His word years ago, the same rings true to this day. Jesus can heal you and wants to heal you. It doesn’t matter what it is or what your doctor may have said-There is nothing too hard for God!
Heaven on Earth is here now. Believe it or not, there is a lot more on healing from a Kingdom perspective, but all these wisdom nuggets should encourage you. God is for you and not against you. He wants to heal you and make you whole. I challenge you to call on the name of Jesus with whatever it is that’s been weighing you down. Invite Him into your life and ask for His Help. Admit your need for Him. Remember, nothing is too hard for God. It does not matter how Big or Small it may be. If it concerns you, it concerns Him.
