My 7 Day Challenge
Had a very dear lady from church ask me to do something that I’m more than willing to try. She said, “I want you try and go 7 days straight without focusing on your pain.” She further explained that she wasn’t saying that I’m not in constant discomfort. But, she wanted me to claim God’s healing by only speaking words that are healing. We talked about the difference in me sharing through my pain verses the times that I’m just fixated on my pain.
This lady is full of faith and so am I when it comes to believing God for a miracle. I do believe scripture teaches us to operate with great faith. In fact, many times when Jesus healed someone he said “your faith has healed you.” I believe if we’re honest most of us struggle to have full faith that God can and will do certain things. So, I’m going to ask God to give my faith wings and take me where I can’t take myself.
Therefore, for the next 7 days I’m going to be very careful with my words. I’m going to speak, write, and pray for God’s healing touch upon my body. With God’s help I’m not going to wallow in my pain, but I will continue to work through it. Of course, I can’t deny my present health condition. However, I can also believe God for His healing touch upon my mind, body, and soul. I will do my best to only write and speak words of life.
“Have compassion on me, LORD, for I am weak. Heal me, LORD, for my bones are in agony.” (Psalm 6:2)
“The LORD will sustain him upon his sickbed; In his illness, You restore him to health.” (Psalms 41:3)
“Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good thing, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” (Psalms103:1-5)
