Yesterday I said Spiritual Healing Is Of Value , and today I would like to speak a little bit more on how it can be obtained. I speak only from personal experience.
What I have found out for myself, is that God wants our full attention and when we give Him our full attention there are many blessings to be had. At first, I attended church only occasionally, then I attended on a weekly basis, I soon found it was not giving me the satisfaction I was looking for.
I like the bible story of the woman with the issue of blood, and I like the way she reached out and touched the hem of Jesus garment, so I like to picture myself that way…. clinging to Jesus, seeking His help, seeking His healing. So, I’ve made it a habit to “try” and tenaciously cling to the hem of Jesus’ garment. I do this by focusing my attention on God, through reading His Word, through prayer, through crying out to Him. Ever time I slip and I let go, I try to find my way back as soon as possible, because life is more comfortable, more peaceful, with God in the picture.
I may never win a marathon in this life, I may never be a mountain climber, I may never be a sky diver, but I’m sure these things take a lot of tenacity. This same courage and determination is needed if we want to see positive changes in our lives.
Metaphorically speaking, we need to dig in and not give up. We need to wrestle with God and stay wrestling with Him until he blesses us, and even then, He is always blessing us in many ways that go unnoticed. For me, I will keep reaching for His outstretched Hand, because I know where I will find my strength.
