As my healing focus progresses in Christ I must Glorify Our God!!!

I Praise Him in the morning, afternoon and the expanses of the night! I give Him all the glory and the honor for my very existance and the ability He has bestowed to me to stand in His faith for my life.

Above all else in my life I EXALT HIM for His eternal faithfulness to me in ALL areas of my life.

Each day I seek His faith in my life. Each day as I become more obedient in what it is I must do to walk in divine health. Each day Father God sends something or someone to bring more knowledge and understanding to me in the areas of my life He is working on.

For this I am eternally grateful to my God! ♥

Just now I checked my e-mail and recieved in my inbox a correspondance from a newsletter that I must have subscribed to when I began my journey to healing 2 or 3 years ago.

God’s Healing Word

In it the gentleman explained why he had been away and the newletter disappeared. He had a serious crisis of faith and lost all interest in the things he had been doing. Now he is back and intends to pick up where he left off! Hence the e-mail.

Of course the e-mail was about Christians and healing! God has funny ways of moving in my life…this e-mail spoke to me. God is so very faithful. Here is the part of the e-mail that spoke so loudly to me:

I want to focus attention on our
physical body, its importance as it relates to Jesus
and the Church (The Body of Christ), Right now in many
if not most churches, there exists a big disconnect
between the two that explains why there is so much sickness
and suffering within the Body of Christ.

Christians are a called out people (I Corinthians 1:9).
That means we are set apart to live our lives differently
from the world, not just in spirit or in mind, but in body as
well (Romans 12:1-2). If this were not so, why else would
Jesus suffer in body on our behalf (Isaiah 53:4-5, I Peter 2:24).

What caught my eye within the e-mail first was this:

“For it is through Christ; His body, that life and healing are made possible.”  as paraphrased from the following scripture.

“And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.  And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

Reconciled in Christ
For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. ” Colossians 1:17-10
Now I don’t know anything about churches who do not understand that our healing was provided at the Cross; completed at Atonement, because our church understands this. This is mainly why I am able to walk in joy while I have such a dire diagnosis!
However, like me, many Christians have health issues, whether minor or severe. Let’s face it after the Fall of Adam our bodies no longer are impervious to illness. Our bodies, now, are meant to waste away, naturally. However, NOT, from illness or with pain. Rather in the natural course of old age.

1 Corinthians 1:7-10 explains how we should be walking, or what we should be walking in as a people called out…

“Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.  God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”

When we were called into fellowship with God’s Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, we became healed in every area of our body and spirit. This is a TRUTH. However, walking in it is not as much a mystery as it is a discipline.

God’s grace – His empowerment of us has and will equip us to acheive all the things we need and desire. Nothing is impossible to those who believe.

Mark 9:23 “Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” This particular scripture is in reference to the healing of the child with fits.

God’s Promise is this: Whatever you believe, whatever you can picture in your mind, you will recieve! God meant for His children to thrive. Not just Christians, the Word does say He came for the lost and we Christians are no longer lost…many of us just don’t have full understanding as yet…God intended that ALL thrive and live and enjoy an Abundant Life.

God’s Kingdom has no limits – His children are only limited by their inability to think and petition largely. Only God and The Word are our limit, and The Word says I am healed!

Psalm 107:20 “He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”

Our God is limitless! We are created in His image, the saved and the unsaved alike! We are NOT limited to the things, conceptions, philosophies or diagnosis of this world!

IF WE CAN BELIEVE IT WE WILL ACHEIVE IT!

WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE TODAY??? I BELIEVE IN MY HEALED BODY! Very soon the docs are going to find NO signs of Hypertension, Heard Disease, or Congestive Heart failure in this body of mine!

I was healed by GRACE ~ A Gift from God that cannot be returned! It can only go unused or unwrapped…Well I am unwrapping my Health today and every morning in the presence of God!

I AM HEALED!

fyi: When you begin a sentence with the phrase ” I am” you are calling on the name of the Soverign LORD…He looks down and pays undivided attention to what you say next… Your I AM is a representation of Christ in YOU…use it wisely.

Blessings Loves and Be Well.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
