My friends, wholeness physically, spiritually and emotionally is God’s plan for us as His children.
Jesus at the Pool of Bethesda asked a certain man who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years the question in John 5:6 “When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?”
This question to me is an indication that choosing to be made whole is a personal choice we all have to make. From my personal experience, some of us really do not desire to be made whole because the process requires confronting the issues that keep us in bondage. I have had to prayerfully go through this process and though painful, it was certainly liberating.
The road map to wholeness requires:
• Personal Conviction – We must (in the place of prayer) receive that personal conviction of whatever is keeping us from attaining that physical, spiritual and emotional wholeness.
.• Genuine Repentance – Note that I mentioned the word “Genuine”. Acknowledging and showing remorse for engaging in situations, circumstances and events that keep us in bondage is the first step and this honesty will manifest as we daily make intentional choices not to go back to our old ways. The power of the Holy Spirit is available to help us overcome.
• Healing – Comes as a bi-product of our conviction and repentance. Because we are chronically human, we tend to fall back into our old ways as a result, we have to sustain our healing by spending time in the word of God and meditating on God’s promises for us.
Christ follower, wholeness is possible for any area of your life you may be struggling with – so choose today to be made whole. If you are currently not a Christ follower, the only one who holds the key to your wholeness is Jesus – come.
All glory to God!
