Stop Hurting, Start Healing - Changing Your Life, Unlocking Your Destiny!
In Chapter 2 of my book Stop Hurting Start Healing I talk about salvation being a process. Most of us were never taught that truth and some reading this blog today may not know it. But…. salvation is a process! Salvation starts first in our spirit and then it is carried over into our soul and through our bodies.
Today we spend most of our attention and time dealing with our bodily issues. We cater to the cravings of our flesh and to the emotions that come out of our hearts. Too often we give in to their persuasions and passions. But God says that we should be living out of our spirit, not out of the guidance and leadership of our flesh.
In Romans chapter 6, we are told that our flesh (our body) is just a servant and it should serve our spirit; that part of our lives where Jesus Christ lives. He rules and reigns in and through us and as He starts the process with our spirit, He wants to bring healing and deliverance to our soul which then overflows to our body.
Do you remember the day you gave your life to Jesus? Things did happen! You began to change, even in your physical body. Your “look” may have changed, maybe people made comments like, “Hey, your eyes look brighter. There seems to be more brightness around you.” They were recognizing the presence of God that now was in your spirit being…. the nature of God flowing in you.
You are a spirit and have a soul and you live in a body and God cares about the whole person. Stop hurting- start healing begins by recognizing that salvation is a process. As 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, old things have passed away and we are now a new creation, but it doesn't stop there. We are to work out our own salvation because remember….it is a process!
