Holistic Healing and Total Well Being

UV 1720/10000 Holistic Healing and Total Well Being
For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.
Jeremiah 30 v 17
We have been nursing all kinds of wounds- the least enduring and painful of wounds are the physical ones. The spiritual, emotional, social and psychological ones last longer, sometimes a whole lifetime, fester and cause much more pain. The Lord is a healing God, a forgiving God, a cleansing God, a delivering God. He is a Specialist of Specialists. He is both able and willing to heal us of all our wounds, even the incurable and chronic ones. The term “health” in the biblical context is used not in a limited way but in a holistic sense. Our physical well being is intimately and inextricably connected with our spiritual, intellectual, emotional and psychological well being. We need to draw our strength and health with joy from each uni-verse – the solid basis of our hope and well being. As scripture says, “Draw with joy from the wells.”
The curse of knowledge is that we know but we do not know enough and what we know we do not apply or use. This kind of spiritual purblindness leads to many self inflicted wounds inflicted on ourselves often unwittingly. We are also subject to many attacks of the enemy of our souls. We are derided and looked down upon as an outcast for being a part of the Kingdom of God- Zion. We are considered strange, peculiar and foreign to this world and its ways. What we know, we do. What we do not know, we trust the Lord for it. We live as if we are strangers, travellers in this world
In this uni-verse, the Lord Jesus promises to restore us. He restores us to a double portion of His anointing and His blessings. He heals us of all our diseases and cures all our wounds. Like the sunlight heals many wounds that would fester if hidden under a bandage, we need to open our wounds, emotional, spiritual, psychological and physical to Him so that His healing rays penetrate every hurt and cell and cause complete healing. We seek Him, His Word, His kingdom rule and power in our lives. We place these far above all other things we know or own in this world. When we receive forgiveness by faith in the shed blood of Jesus and His wounds, we derive healing of our spirits and of our emotional, relational, psychological hurts or wounds. “ By His wounds, we have been healed.” Each wound on the body of Jesus has a specific significance and power of healing to this day of the wounds on the body of Christ- the church or all believers everywhere.
