Our emotions function as indicators of our souls, pointing to our personal pain, inner conflicts, beliefs about God and much more. We need to listen to our souls as part of our healing and personal transformation. This is in stark contrast to psychiatric medication that typically numbs the soul, prevents lasting healing and undermines spiritual growth.
A “divine wake-up call” in Cairo, avoiding an accident with a semi-trailer, and more, has helped me to know God as Father. This is all part of our spiritual wholeness and at times comes up in healing prayer sessions.
Really, the Great Commandment connects with the ministry of healing prayer? But let’s think again! Our life and ministry flow from our love from and for God the Father. If this relationship is not right, it is a “major block” in our spiritual journey. Healing and transformation become essential in our spiritual growth.
Our belief in Christ — His Presence, His power and more — largely determines our ministry and much of Church life. Could it be that reflecting on our actual belief in Jesus, desiring to grow in this — might be the most important “work” that we do to lessen a bottleneck in our service for the Kingdom of God?
