Words are very powerful whether they are written or spoken. It has become very clear to me that many people are trapped by information concerning their health. Every week I’m meeting people who are not overcoming their health issues because of a medical report or a doctor’s words and they are taking them as the final say. Only the Lord has the final say. Many are trapped on disability, because if they truly get well they lose the financial support they need to survive. A powerful Catch-22 for millions of people, but the disability is an issue for another time, this is about processing information.
Let’s talk about you. Let me give you an example of a man we’ll call Tom. Tom was on crutches for many years, you know the kind, the ones that wrap around your forearm giving everyone the idea you are permanently crippled? Well, Tom had a serious back injury and the doctor’s left him on pain medication and basically left him to live like this, but one day Tom starting thinking..what if? One day he laid his crutches down and started doing very small movements with his legs and arms. He did this every day and within one year, he no longer needed the crutches or pain medications. He is doing cartwheels now! Today, Tom is living life free from those crutches, which became part of his identity. He is a healed man.
Grace was a woman who was overweight and on multiple medications because she was told she needed them. I’m sure at the time she did as people who are overweight have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, pain and blood sugar problems. She spent years listening to the doctor’s report and one day her light bulb went on. She slowly worked to change her diet into a lifestyle of healthy eating and started walking around the house as a form of exercise. Today, Grace has lost 70lbs and her medication load has been greatly reduced.
Think of the millions of people who take the diagnosis of a terminal disease and just stop doing anything. Terminal is what a doctor’s report can deliver, but the Bible says we can obtain a good report through faith. Miracles still happen! Believe in your heart and in your mind and you can more than anything a report says. Why give up? Why stop living? What if the report is wrong and you’re not going to die? Live each day with hope and push on. Attitude has a lot to do how we respond to this life and we don’t get a do over. Give it all you got!
They say a mind is a terrible thing to waste. It is, but the mind can also trap us from reaching our God-given destiny of health and wholeness, all because someone said we can’t, couldn’t, shouldn’t and so on. Never underestimate the power of the mind and the can do spirit.
Many people are at the doorstep of their healing and they do not realize it! It’s time to rise up and walk ladies and gentleman and take no for an answer.
Don’t let a doctor’s report or a doctor’s words become the final say. You are a miracle waiting to happen, it’s time to do what you can do and let the Lord give you the strength to be whole again. As I always say, do what you can do in the natural and let God do the supernatural!
Never let words trap you and prevent you from the healing that is waiting for you to possess.
