February Partner Letter
This month’s pamphlet is a powerful healing message. So many people today need healing in their lives, emotionally, mentally and physically. To those who are broken-hearted, sick and desperate, there is good news…healing from Jesus, and it flows even now to you from the throne of God.
Healing is a spiritual force. Since it is a spiritual force, it flows into the human spirit FIRST, before it flows to the mind, will, emotions and then the body. A blockage at any of these points can hinder the flow of health and healing to your body.
I remember an incident that happened to me many years ago when I first began to teach on healing. I was sitting in a restaurant with a friend discussing a situation with a fellow believer who I felt had wronged me. As the words flowed out of my mouth about my disapproval of their behavior, the Holy Spirit tried to check me in my spirit to STOP TALKING! But I wanted to finish “my side of the story” so I continued. As I walked out of that restaurant my throat became sore and inflamed (yes, almost instantaneously) and I was sick for 10 days. I spoke the Word, prayed for healing and nothing improved until the Holy Spirit reminded me what the discussion was in that restaurant and how I ignored His prompting to shut up and save myself!
Paul said many were sick because they dishonored other believers in this way: “That is why you should examine yourself before eating the bread and drinking the cup. For if you eat the bread or drink the cup without honoring the body of Christ, you are eating and drinking God’s judgment upon yourself. That is why many of you are weak and sick and some have even died.” I Corinthians 11:28-30 New Living Translation (NLT)
And Peter is the second witness: “For the Scriptures tell us: Whoever wants to embrace true life and find beauty in each day must stop speaking evil, hurtful words and never deceive in what they say. Always turn from what is wrong and cultivate what is good; eagerly pursue peace in every relationship, making it your prize.” I Peter 3:10-11 The Passion Translation (TPT)
To live in health or receive healing, regularly examine yourself for evidence of strife, anger, unforgiveness and judgement; ask forgiveness and release them by faith in Jesus’ name. You CAN live in peace and find beauty in each day. The Word says so!
