One of the biggest misconceptions is, becoming HEALED is the final step after being in a place of dejection. Truth is, one should desire to be made WHOLE. In Luke 17, Jesus was met by 10 desperate lepers who needed to be cleansed from their affliction. They received outward healing (physical) but were not made whole. The chapter further explained that one of the healed lepers returned to thank Jesus. Upon his second interaction, Jesus declared the leper's faith had made him whole. Wholeness is complete restoration, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Wholeness is achieved through intimacy with God when your faith is in alignment with what God has said and done. When you have availed yourself to be transformed by God, you become a new creation in Christ. The old is gone and all things are now new (2 Corinthians 5:17). As you put on this new wineskin, your ways become likened unto Christ. Instead of fear, you operate in faith. Instead of hatred and unforgiveness, you put on the garment of forgiveness. Instead of worry, you permeate the atmosphere with your worship. Instead of focusing on the things you lack, you now stand on the notion that you are a child of a King and there is inheritance accessible to you. Instead of condemnation, you remember His grace is sufficient.
In this season I encourage you to desire to "BE THOU MADE WHOLE", i.e inward and outward healing. Have you ever worn a smile but instead you are bitter and angry? Have you ever said "hello" but truly carried hatred for the individual? If so God wants to restore that breach. Will you take the necessary steps?
Can I pray for you? Gracious Father God, I present this reader before you. They desire more of you and less of them. Help them to release the anger, heaviness, brokenness, unforgiveness right now in Jesus' name. I pray that you transform them both inside and outside. Replace their stony heart and give them a heart of flesh. Make them whole and cause them to experience you in a new way. Whatever has led them to a place of despondency, I pray that you substitute it for peace, love, a sound mind, and wholeness. Thank you for answering these requests in Jesus' name. Amen
