Our God is a loyal God. A kind God. One who heals! If you have something in your life to thank Him for then join me right now in thanking Him for healing us.
Over the weekend a visiting teacher who has the gift of prophecy said that many people were looking at my life and saying to themselves ‘where is your God?’ (perhaps because of my intense need for healing). He told me that God will come through for me and I will be vindicated for trusting Him.
Thank You Lord that last night You reached into me and healed a lonely, lost inner child – and this morning I woke up feeling new.
The steps to the change
I confessed this passionately over and over (passionately, but He said not to ‘beg’ or be ‘desperate’).
I began to pray for a renewing of my heart:
For out of the heart come evil thoughts (reasonings and disputings and designs) such as murder, adultery, sexual vice, theft, false witnessing, slander, and irreverent speech. – Matthew 15:19
I went through 4 clear steps:
- I wanted to change and I asked God to show me the solution
- I began to ask for the renewing of my heart
- I prayed for hidden internal damage to be saved, healed and redeemed
- I confessed that Jesus is able to keep His promises that He made in His bible
And He responded – check it out…
Healing and change
Last night I had a vivid dream where an inner troubled Mark was lovingly and gently reached out to by Someone. As that troubled Mark reached back, he left me and I woke up feeling new, different and quite simply just… ME! 🙂
I have spent the day today enjoying trouble-free thoughts and peace. As I end my day I know God now has more access to me than ever before. I feel cleaner and clearer than ever before. I have a quiet and persistent feeling that things are going to trend up – that I’m at the bottom of a long, gentle upward curve.
I have ‘peace’ in my inner being. So many dreams now feel like they will begin to bear fruit – that is ‘hope’. The fruits of joy and love will come in time.
Day one of the rest of my life
God is such a good God. And this experience just reconfirms to me that entering into all that Christ has done for me (by faith… meaning that if I say I believe it then it’s true for me!), that is the single best path to healing that I have EVER found.
In practice that means reading and UNDERLINING the parts of Romans, Colossians and Hebrews that say that He will heal me. Reading it out loud and stating that it’s true and asking God to move because Jesus HAS made the way clear between me and my Father in heaven.
And He moved. Looking back, He knew this was coming and He had already prepared the ground over several days and so He simply moved in and redeemed and saved that troubled part of me.
I *would* run out into the streets and shout out what He has done for me, BUT I’m tired and it’s 2am and I’m just enjoying the peace. hehehe.
As I end this post in which I’m worshipping Jesus for what He did on the cross for me… I also want to deeply thank *every* person who has prayed for me. We are a body and we all need each other. I benefitted from your prayers. Thank you.
Although this big victory came now, I know there is much growth still and I must not rush. There is no rush.
