Your mind has an awesome control over your body, did you know that ?
You could be experiencing a pain right now… and there is NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU… it’s all in your head…. don’t laugh… because MENTALLY you “may have turned to mush”.
So how do you know…. whether it is physical or mental ? …. does it matter ?
Physically, all you need is FOOD, EXERCISE and SLEEP… in the correct proportions… but this is only a general rule…. which GOD can override for specific occasions.
Mentally, you need PEACE and JOY ….. but how can you be peaceful and joyful when your life is falling apart ?
You need GOD…. that’s what you REALLY need…. IF you have already received His free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ…. IF you already have His Holy Spirit within you…. then the only thing that remains is to “walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:16)….. this then IS the cure for ALL SIN in your life…. this then IS how you experience JOY and PEACE (Galatians 5:22-23)…. this then is the HEALTH of your body…… read Isaiah 61:1 and 2 Corinthians 3:17…. “Eleurtheria” in the Greek is translated “liberty”….. the exact opposite of the bondage of Satan.
Do not listen to the advice of some Christians who will tell you that DRUGS is the way to go…. Exodus 15:26 says, “I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that heals you”… Psalms 103:2-3 tells us that the LORD forgives iniquity and heals diseases…. James 5:15 tells us,”… the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him”.
My friend your COMFORT IS IN THE LORD…. IF your are dedicated to Him you need not worry about your physical ailments like the heathen do.
The REAL reason the heathen run to doctors and psychologists is because they are so SELF concerned ….. they want the health and wellness for themselves so that they may do what they want to do….. when the proper attitude should be towards GOD and not themselves…. believe me, God is well able to look after His sheep on this earth until He is ready to bring them home to Himself..
God will shield you from “unbearable” suffering, or give you the capability to endure it…… God will not “cut short” your life…. and as His child, you cannot die until your work on earth is done….. it is Satan and his demons who will try to kill you before your time because they do not want you to complete God’s work….. it is Satan and his demons who will wrap you in “suffering” and “pain” (whether mental or physical)…. YOU must RESIST in FAITH (James 4:7)….. and you must constantly claim, “all things work together for good to them that love God” (Romans 8:28)… you must also “take every thought captive” (2 Corinthians 10:5) (because it is in your thoughts, planted in your head by demons, that the damage is done)……. what I am saying is that the demons are POWERLESS to harm you, but if they can get you to think the THOUGHTS that they want you to think… then you will HARM YOURSELF in two ways:
1. Because your THOUGHTS have power over your body… “as a man THINKS, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7)
2. You will take your thoughts away from God and place them on yourself and on circumstances around you… ” you will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you” (Isaiah 26:3)…. the promise is to those that are centred on GOD and not on themselves.
