Healing in Him

James 5:16 declares, “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”

There is a saying that confession is good for the soul. Surely that comes from James 5:16. Confession is good for the soul because it releases the spiritual guilt of sin to Christ. It also releases the emotional and mental guilt of sin to the person to whom you confess. When such a hard burden is released, then healing becomes possible. Righteousness is the gift of the Lord, and prayer does accomplish much. It accomplishes miracles in the name of God.

III John 2 reads, “Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.” Realize you are special to Jesus Christ. He calls you, “Beloved!” He died for you so you might discover wholeness in Him. For your body, mind, and spirit.

He wishes you to prosper and to be in good health. He does not wish you to suffer, and have illness. His blood flowed so that you might be healed. His blood flowed so that you might receive continually through faith.

What does He wish for you to receive? His truth, and His truth applied. To receive continually through faith, you must grow spiritually. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. As you grow (prosper) spiritually and then apply the lesson, might faith for the healing of body, mind, and spirit be easier? Might the truth of the message be more real because you have put down a foundation in Him?

My mind, body, and spirit all answer “YES” My heart rejoices because I realize that I have learned another lesson in this walk with the Lord. He trains me in the way that I should go so that when I am finished on that last day, I will be refined as gold. His sanctifying refinement liberates me to believe in what human eyes say is not true. His report is always good.

Seek Him and find the lesson. Learn that God can turn a sacrifice of praise (Hebrews 13:15) into a time of spiritual, physical, and emotional victory. Even though the battle wages, it still has been won through faith! You are an over-comer in Christ!
