Christian Healing - 3 Wholeness

I believe Jesus came to set us free as a whole person, so healing includes not just for the body, but emotional, mental and spiritual. They are all linked.

In fact unresolved emotions can have a disabling effect. For example: I used to suffer from a kind of panic that I called claustrophobia. It meant that I avoided, if possible, going into any enclosed space, such as a lift (elevator), the London Underground (Subway) or any situation where I wasn’t in control. I was eventually healed of this by facing the scary feeling with Jesus. It was soon put to the test. When landing after a crowded transatlantic flight, the plane’s exit doors refused to open.

Buried feelings, like anger for example, if not taken responsibility for and resolved, can even erupt in other ways such as physical illness.

These ‘wounds’ may be rooted in a past trauma and need courage to allow Jesus into that painful place. We may need help at first from an experienced prayer minister or prayer counsellor. Either way, it’s in intimacy with Jesus that healing takes place, so all the ‘minister’ will be doing really is bringing us into God’s presence and allowing the Holy Spirit to do His healing work.

He will meet with us at our point of need.

“May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23

    We so try to fix the broken and hurtful things in our lives ourselves. We can not do it. It is only by surrendering all to Jesus Christ and allow Him to mend what is broken in our lives. Once this is done, our lives become so much better. There comes a point in our lives where we have to say enough is enough and turn it over to the One who can mend us back together.

    Beautiful writings my friend. I enjoyed each and every one of them.

    Blessings!

    I loved this post because God uses me as a prayer minister. I am still amazed by God at the traumas he will heal if we are willing to open up to the Him with the traumas. I find that in my own life and in the life of others it takes us to be placed between a rock and a hard place for us to cry out to Jesus and let Him heal us. Wish it was easier, but seems to that I have to be in a place of no way out to cry out.

    It seems there is no other way. And when he has changed us he used us to change others - every bit of the pain is used.

    Yes it's amazing how God wants to heal us from all sorts of deep issues in our lives. I find that many people lack knowledge though and are not praying for the right thing always. It's important that we know that every fruit has a root.

    Thank you. You are so right - I couldn't agree more.
