LACK OF FAITH CAN HINDER HEALING FOR SOUL, BODY AND SPIRIT. Scripture reminds us this way: Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2). When you are able to change your thinking, you’re able to change your world.
Faced with illness, emotional struggles and physical pain we tend to either forget or push our faith into a corner and not rely on what gets us through difficult times in life. LACK OF FAITH CAN HINDER HEALING FOR SOUL, BODY AND SPIRIT. Even though we face difficult times at some point, Jesus has reminded us that he would send a Comforter; one in which you are able to make the connection with through willingness to surrender of all that becomes too heavy to carry alone. Even though the road may seem long and difficult, we are never without help.
If you are suffering from physical ailments you understand what pain feels like; if you’re unable to get around you know what immobility feels like; if you’re going through problems with relationships or marriage, you know what broken feels like. Without faith the journey can be difficult because you’re not able to grasp the true meaning of what is available to carry you through your circumstance.
Scripture reminds us of what Jesus taught about faith in this way, ‘if you have faith the size of a grain of mustard seed, you’ll be able to do achieve great things (Matthew 17:20), this includes healing. What he has spoken is true; therefore, LACK OF FAITH CAN HINDER HEALING FOR SOUL, BODY AND SPIRIT.
We are a society which looks for tangible proof, what we can see or touch before we comprehend the awesome power of what the Holy Spirit is able to achieve in our lives when we are willing, ready and obedient to the will of God. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17); therefore, you must learn to trust in faith that your healing will come as a blessing, but you must be willing to release those thoughts and attitudes that may be the stumbling block in the process. How aware are you to the fact that LACK OF FAITH CAN HINDER HEALING FOR SOUL, BODY AND SPIRIT?
If you feed your mortal body negativity, the flow can be interrupted where the Holy Spirit desire to bring your thoughts in line with its energy properties that hold great power. There are times we must anchor our thoughts in the word of God and build on that personal relationship, get to know the true source of where healing and wholeness can be found. It is possible to tap into the source, but LACK OF FAITH CAN BLOCK HEALING FOR SOUL, BODY AND SPIRIT.
Finally my friends, listen to how scripture speaks to our hearts when you are willing and obedient: Rejoice in the Lord always, be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God (Philippians 4:4:-6). Allow your heart and mind to center on where you are and what it is that you seek; allowing the Spirit to come in, release those thoughts that hinder and watch how God will work a miracle in your life. Remember LACK OF FAITH CAN BLOCK HEALING FOR SOUL, BODY AND SPIRIT.
