The Attitude For Healing
Beloved, if you are asking God for a miracle healing, and you’re wondering why it hasn’t manifested yet, read this and set your attitude for healing. Then you will see the hand of God move and know that He does not lie! His will is for your perfect health and peace in your life! Thank you Jesus!
When I became sick a while ago, I was told I had a mass in my abdomen, either a burst appendix that was sealed over or Crohn's disease or cancer. So I had all these tests done and the doctors I had in town wouldn't touch me. The gastroenterologist sent me to a surgeon and both said they didn't know what I had but they weren't qualified to do anything. So I went to a surgeon in Albany, where my nephew who had Crohn's went.
At first the surgeon said they'd operate and do this and that, and to come back in a few days. I didn't like the idea of surgery, and I prayed hard for God to be the one to heal me.
I went back to the surgeon and he had changed his whole attitude about me. He won't touch me either. I still see him to get the antibiotics and meds until I'm healed, but he said they believe I have Crohn's and a fistula (hole between the bladder and intestines) and that they can't operate unless I get in a life and death situation, because it will make new fistulas form from the inflammation of having surgery.
What I'm trying to say is, I asked God to heal it, so He arranged it so the doctor's would not operate and take away His glory. But then I did stupid things. I talked to my sisters several times a day as I'd panic and think I was dying. (I really was sick, near death many times and had to get over the fear of actually dying.) I'd go to the ER as often as 3 times a week between my heart beating out of rhythm and fainting from malnutrition and being overcome with bacteria.
I would talk to my sisters and describe to them each new pain and symptom and we'd wonder what it meant and what this new development would lead to. We were not using any faith, or speaking out the right words. I was speaking words of death, basically. The enemy was having a field day with me! I played into his hands and made everything worse!
It took me several months to get my mouth under control and every now and then I still slip. But I'm MUCH better. I can do housework and walk around now. I can drive and shop etc. I have days when I feel there is nothing wrong with me and THERE ISN'T! I AM healed. God's word is true.
I would not be alive right now otherwise. This last week I even had days where there was no evidence of the fistula. I know God is closing it. (The doctors say it can close.) Even if they did not say that, I believe my God's word is true.
It ALWAYS works. Our human nature and disbelief is the ONLY thing standing in the way of our complete healing. We are so geared to what we see and feel, (our 5 senses) and the mental reasoning that we use to search for why it might be better, or why it might get worse. All stupid things. And the smarter we are, the harder it is for us, because we lean on our education and understanding of how things work in the natural world.
This is the faith walk, beloved. It sometimes takes a while to develop. At first when I was a Christian I had instant miracles and some that took longer, but now I'm experiencing the deeper side of healing. I am learning strength of faith that I never had before.
I put myself into this sickness with my emotions and life choices. I am not only being healed now, but I'm gradually learning to correct the problems that made the sickness to begin with.
I trust that you will come through your problems too, with deeper compassion, closeness to the Lord, and a faith that can withstand the worst that the enemy can throw at the world!
My plea to you is to stand fast on the name of Jesus and His blood that heals all sickness. He did not lie. He promised you a healing if you ask in His name, if you will believe.
There are 8 methods of healing mentioned in the Bible, and if you've done all that you can do, there is nothing left but to stand - and rejoice! Claiming your healing now and working hard to never let yourself speak negative words that solidify the cysts' existence. http://www.blessingmeadowsministries.com/HealingVehicles.htm
This article above is a bit long, but scroll down to the main headings and see what those 8 things are. (Also visit Dr. Snell’s website where this came from and see many other wonderful teachings that will help you heal. http://www.jaysnell.org)
Do what you can to avoid depression. That's one of our worst enemies. The antidote for depression and sickness is both praise (in song and speaking or singing in tongues) and action. Get busy living life to the best of your ability. If you're unable to get up and do something, then dream it, plan it and feel as if you're living it now.
If you’ve asked God to heal you, I know that your problem is gone. I know it in my heart. As you go back to the doctor you'll see that it fades and shrinks and eventually won't be found.
I know that my sickness is gone too. The fistula is closed! I am healed because it is written, by His stripes I am healed...whatever you ask in my name I will do...I am the God that healeth thee... and many many more verses.
For the pain, remember to sing praises. Remember to clap your hands and drive the enemy away. It drives the pain away too. I have to force myself to do this because it feels so against how I'm "feeling" at the moment. When we're in pain, our bodies want to shut down, moan and change our breathing into broken gasps.
We have to on purpose push past that and sing. Praise! Think of Jesus as how you would find Him if you were standing in front of Him now. Use every available imagination stretch, every idea, every desire you have for what you'll do when you see Him.
Smell Him! Imagine your head against His chest and the freshest smell in the universe, the precious smell of God. (A child who had a near death experience was telling her parents that God has a great smell, He smells like the air after a fresh rain.)
Feel the warmth of His chest and the beat of His heart under the amazing robes of His Kingship. Feel how comforted you are in His arms and how every pain and torment disappears into insignificance when you're with Him! That's going to be your daily food for eternity, my friends! Isn't that wonderful? And you can have it now too through your amazing mind that can bring those thoughts into your awareness now and enjoy them.
I imagine His robe to be made of something so soft that you want to sink into the fabric. Not smooth like satin but more like terry cloth or flannel. I can't describe it.
I imagine His smell to be manly, but holy, without evoking any other thoughts in me. Not about sex, not associating it with any known perfume, etc. Just so comforting and whole, perfect and MINE! Although there are SO many of us, all wanting to be with Him, He's got this wonderful ability to belong to each of us individually and be everywhere at once!!! And we belong to Him. He desires us above all that He already owns!
Enough to die for. Enough to suffer extreme pain for.
Today is a day to acknowledge the goodness and wisdom of God. His sovereign nature - that He could choose to do with us anything He wants, but He tells us over and over in the Bible, that His will for us is perfect health and peace. He said He knows His thoughts towards us, that they are all good and never wishes harm towards us.
He's not a child who could be bored with his playthings and crush the clay dolls he was content playing with yesterday! He is unchanging! His word is absolute!
Instead of just thinking "I'm not giving up, I'm going to wait this out", think "My Lord said I am healed, therefore I am healed. It's settled and I'm not thinking about it again!"
"I won't be moved! I rebuke any thoughts of defeat, because God says I overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of my testimony! My testimony is that I have believed the report of God! I agree with the Word of God! All of His blessings are Yes and AMEN in my life! I am being blessed and healed and my experience will bring my Lord into my presence stronger than before. I will be a living testimony to the goodness of God. I will NOT die but live and declare the works of God!" HUGS!
I know you are strong! God chose you for a perfect work. He has a plan for you. You don't have to worry about letting Him down. :) Just lean on Him. Do as He asks. Don't try to run your life or provide for yourself, lean completely on Him and drink in deep from His wells of living water - His abundant life!
Remember don't talk about the sickness unless you are declaring it healed. You can slow down the healing by talking negatively and predicting or even ALLOWING a thought of having to learn to live with it. The enemy will take that as a sign of weakness or giving up and then the problem will hang on.
You'll then just have to start over again and reinforce your faith over and over. The manifestation is coming!
I read this in Malachi 3 this week, and it could be taken to apply here as healing power:
"Malachi 3:1 The Promised Messenger
I, the Lord All-Powerful, will send my messenger to prepare the way for me. Then suddenly the Lord you are looking for will appear in his temple. The messenger you desire is coming with my promise, and he is on his way."
(Remember that since Jesus’ death, God dwells inside man now instead of in a temple building. We ARE the temple of God and His coming to you can mean filling you and healing you!)
The rest of the chapter is amazing, about man's dealing with God falsely, not tithing, talking bad about him, participating in witchcraft and other bad things, and just basically not getting it that we're the cause of our own suffering. But despite all that He said that they were doing wrong, He said “Come back to me and I will forgive and heal you.”
"17 Then the Lord All-Powerful said: You people are precious to me, and when I come to bring justice, I will protect you, just as parents protect an obedient child. 18 Then everyone will once again see the difference between those who obey me by doing right and those who reject me by doing wrong."
Remember it's not YOU who has to have any power to heal you. All your job is - is to be obedient in asking God to heal you, (done!), asking for prayer and being anointed with oil from other believers, and then acting on your faith by going about your business to the best of your ability cheerfully, thanking Him for the healing as a done deal!
Now it's in HIS ball court. He has the next move and God won't embarrass Himself!
He can afford to be lavish in His healings and in His dealings with man, because He IS and HAS so much life! And He declared He was giving it to US. :) Thank you Jesus!
I bless you in Jesus' name and declare your health problem to be dead and gone! YOU have life, and life more abundantly! Praise God!
To God be the praise and glory! In Jesus’ name I send out this teaching and ask that the Word bless and heal all who read or hear it.
God bless you all.
