Saturday Morning Devotional Prayer and Praise Service Health and Healing


Our message today is a direct response to one of our readers and fellow bloggers that was posted on an article I written a few days ago title:  “YOU ARE CREATED WITH POWER AND FOR A REASON!”

After Diana, My Dear Sister in Christ proposed this question to us; “When was the last time you had to remedy a situation with a weak link, in your family or Church? [Refresher….because you talk with so many….I wrote the Question of Human Suffering?”

 I told her that rather than just responding to her question with a short note, I would write an article title: “FAITH IN HUMAN SUFFERNG WILL PROVIDE HEALING TO THE HUMAN BODY!” The title came to me instantly while reading and meditating on her question, I said My God, My God how marvelous you really are, thank you, thank you. You are truly my provider, and you will provide to all of us all we need at the very moment and time we need it.



Let me begin by adding a few points to the first part of her question.  Because our employer is Jesus Christ and our Mission is to make Disciples, daily we are confronted with situations where people have fallen by the way side and find it difficult to pick themselves up and turn their lives around.  They have become one of the weak links in the Church, the Community as well as their family, and our job is to help restore them back to the right relationship with Jesus Christ.

Recently I met a man who was living in a homeless shelter; he was married with three young children.  He had a Master Degree in Business and had worked for several years in the automotive industry.  His company was downsized and he lost his job, his home and now he was about to lose what matter to him the most, and that was his wife and young children.  This man had become the weak link in his family, as well as his community, and was having a very difficult time with all that was happening to him.  His health was failing and his spirit was broken.  What he needed most was Jesus and at that very moment he could not see it.  At this point, my job is to help restore him back to the right relationship with Jesus, by encouraging him to walk by faith and not by sight.  Sometimes God has to break us in order to make us.

In analysis of faith, suffering, healing and the human body we are able to relate to spirituality in combination with mortal (flesh). Combining these elements we bring into subjection mind over matter, our thought process, the passageway to wholeness.

The physical body is just that, physical, subject to the elements that surrounds it in its natural state.  The spirit that inhabits the human body is God given, he has breathed his breath into it; therefore, suffering develops faith within human suffering. Faith that is centered and focused brings healing and health to the physical body, it serves as a stimulus to the cells, and tissue that makes up the human entity of who we really are. You can speak to the cells in your body, command them to heal, and they will obey your command.

We often think of life here on this earth as all that there is and we hesitate to venture into the unknown simply because we have not allowed the process of thought to lead us. Even when we experience an altered state in our health, we focus on what is happening within the physical body rather than the spiritual where healing is plentiful. Without faith we are not able to comprehend the awesome power of God in reality.

If we think for a moment and consider the teachings of Jesus (his words are truth) we will understand how he has given the authority and power to his followers, remember what he said to his disciples, “Go, preach, heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils, freely you have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:5-8).  When his “hour” had come, Jesus prayed to his Father for his followers, “The glory which you gave me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one. I in them, and you in me, so that they may be made perfect in one,” His teaching of Love is an avenue for healing. Consider the infirm woman talked about in scripture (Luke 13:10-17) bound by the Devil for eighteen years, unable to walk straight. She allowed her past to rob her of her strength and vitality, her will to move forward in life. This lady had to struggle to get to Jesus and when she made contact she was set free of her infirmity. There will come moments in life when we must release things and people in order to be free.

Christ suffered for us in the flesh; we are to arm ourselves with the same mind toward one another and life. 1Peter 4:12-13 reminds us this way, “beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trials which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you, but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s suffering, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be with exceeding joy.” We are freely given, wisdom, knowledge, strength and understanding, it’s up to us to make the choice.

Now I encourage each one of you, when you talk the talk and say that you have “FAITH,” don’t let it be just another word you say to make others believe you truly do know what you are talking about, learn to walk the walk and know without an ounce of doubt that, “FAITH IN HUMAN SUFFERING WILL PROVIDE HEALING TO THE HUMAN BODY!”


We thank each of you for reading and studying with us daily.  You are truly a disciple of Jesus Christ and we have Ministered this lesson to you today from a position of Peace, Power, Purpose and Prosperity.

  1. I appreciate this passionate post and its anchor back to Jesus.

    Even when we experience an altered state in our health, we focus on what is happening within the physical body rather than the spiritual where healing is plentiful.

    I can tell you from experience (on both sides of the line) that one of the reasons it is hard living or relating with someone who is not well is that person has trouble hearing any other voice but his/her own in the compromised condition. Including the Voice of the Shepherd. Yes, the man you spoke of was the weak link. Thank you for the time you put into this.


      You are so very welcome, thank you for responding. When the state of mind is not focused and centered in a positive way the energy field for healing is disrupted. We are mortal beings filled with spirit and light, when we are able to comprehend the awesome power of thought we will, even at times, surprise ourselves. May joy always flow to you and peace always be a welcoming element of your journey.
