Lots of times we think of healing in the terms of physical expressions, such as healing from cancer, scoliosis, ulcers, blind eyes, etc. While I’m wholly supportive of physical healing, I also thoroughly believe that we need God’s healing power to affect the entirety of our lives & not just our bodies.
For example, there are plenty of biblical characters who needed God’s healing touch in their thoughts & points of view. People such as Pharaoh who hardened his heart, Lot who chose the well-watered plains of Sodom & Gomorrah, as well as both Saul’s (OT & NT) are all people who needed God’s healing power to change their thinking & points of view.
I would also suggest that there are not just a few of us who need God’s healing power to touch our emotions. Places in our emotions that are controlled or dominated by excessive fear, grief, depression, etc are all opportunities for God’s healing power to redeem & renovate!
Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to heal not only our bodies, but all of us including our thoughts & emotions!
When I return from an international trip, I’m usually hungry for something like a hamburger or a hearty salad. I really like American food & traveling oversees makes me appreciate it all the more.
Coming home from my most recent trip to Cambodia, I’ve found myself more hungry for the Holy Spirit & my appetite for flowing with the Holy Spirit in my daily living has significantly increased. Im really happy for this hunger & eager to see how that roles into daily living. I already saw evidence of this last night when I took my daughter dress shopping for Homecoming! We found something both beautiful & affordable!
Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to increase our appetite for a greater integration of His presence throughout our lives!
