Strange question isn’t it? Do you want to be healed? Many of you say you want to be healed, overcome the ailment, illness or disease that you are dealing with, but do you really want healing? It’s not a harsh question to ask. I talk with so many people that some of them have the unction to be healed while others say they want it, but they don’t pursue it.
There lies the problem. There are many reasons why you don’t pursue complete healing. Some of you rely on doctors putting faith in men who spent years in school and practice that their authority will somehow bring healing to your body. Others may not have the financial means to pursue complete healing, placing their faith in the lack of funds they need to seek professional help. And then we have the majority of the population who have not been educated in the art of healing, God’s way.
What is God’s way of healing? Well, it starts with faith of course and it also means looking at all the things we are doing and not doing? Are we eating correctly? Are we eating foods that encourage the healing response in our body? Our bodies were made to heal itself, but society has lost its way. For years the population has been eating the life of ease with processed, prepackaged foods and found out driving through the drive-thru window makes life easier.
If you really want something, you have to work for it. Oh, the word ‘work’ causes people to run away, but aren’t you tired of feeling sick and tired? So let’s back up a bit. When I talk with those who need healing in their bodies, I want their faith to be built up first. I always tell them, the same power that raised Christ from the dead, lives in you! Do you realize how strong that power is? Jesus healed everyone so came to Him regardless if they thought He was the Son of God or not. Many just wanted a miracle and He never turned those away who came to Him. Focus on the word ‘came’. They pursued healing because they saw others rising up and walking. Jesus is still alive today and sits on the right hand of the Father, but if you are a believer, that same power lives in you. First, pray for your healing with faith. Command the sickness or disease to go in the name of Jesus. There’s power in the name of Jesus, so much so that Peter and John spoke His name that caused the man at the Gate Beautiful to rise up and walk. They spoke a command, they did not pray with the man and walk away. Big difference! Take command of your faith and speak it over your health. God still does miracles today! He’s just waiting on everyone to believe again.
Every day keep working on your faith and be bold when speaking over your health and commanding the sickness to leave your body. Speak more years into your life!
Now, that we’ve taken a look at the supernatural, what you doing in the natural? Do you have cancer, but you still waking up in the morning and starting your day with coffee and a donut? Those aren’t life giving foods, but foods that promote death. In the eyes of cancer, sugar is food to abnormal cells and makes them grow. Start the day with lemon and water. Make a life giving smoothie that will promote improved digestive health, stronger immune system that improves the function of natural killer cells and T-cells to fight cancer. Maybe you are dealing with heart disease and your cholesterol is high? The coffee and donut or the Starbucks drive-thru is not promoting cardiovascular health. Look at starting your day with heart healthy foods such as berries which are full of antioxidants to prevent the cholesterol from oxidizing. Add some healthy fats such as salmon in the morning so those Omega 3s will help reduce inflammation in the arteries and help to increase the good cholesterol (HDL) and lower your triglycerides. Eat oatmeal as the beta glucans that naturally occur are known by the American Heart Association to lower cholesterol. Even, the fruit bergamont will help improve cardiovascular health by simply eating it every morning and for the diabetics, the same fruit is shown to normalize blood sugar levels.
Get the picture? What we eat, we become. Eat non-nutritious foods, or what I call sick foods will give you a weak immune system, poor gut health, increase cardiovascular risk, weight gain and even cancer. God created us in His image and the foods He created were to nourish us daily and ward off disease.
Pursue healing like you’re on a mission to win! Get educated! When you increase your knowledge in the Bible, your faith becomes strong like a warrior and you can kick the devil’s behind to dark side of the moon. Increasing your knowledge on living foods will promote healing in your body and reverse disease and keep you energetic, vibrant and healthy. Who wouldn’t want that?
Now get your ‘want to’ up and running. The race isn’t over yet, as you are in the driver seat. Let’s go!
We'll be diving deeper into this subject and give you the tools to leave sickness in the past.
