RESTORE YOUR TOTAL WELLBEING
RESTORE YOUR TOTAL WELLBEING
Read: 3 John 2
“Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually]” (3 John 2 Amp)
God’s plan for you is that you prosper in every aspect of human endeavor: spiritually, emotionally, mentally, intellectually, financially, socially, psychologically, maritally, and occupationally. He wants you to stay connected to Him, He wants your mind to be alive, He wants you to think intelligently, He wants your body to be sound, He wants your relationships to flourish. He wants you to live out your purpose fully, He delights in your financial prosperity. He wants you to be emotionally sound. This is the wholesome and abundant life that Christ came to give us.
Your spirit, soul, mind, and body are all connected. What happens to one affects the other. Your body responds to the way you think, feel and act. This is often called the “mind/body connection.” When you are stressed, anxious or upset, your body tries to tell you that something isn’t right. For example, high blood pressure or a stomach ulcer might develop after a particularly stressful event.
Our emotions have a direct connection to our body. Repressed strong emotions affect many things in your body like high blood pressure, back pain, change in appetite, chest pain, constipation or diarrhoea, general aches, headaches, and insomnia (trouble sleeping).
Restoring your total wellbeing begins with spiritual wholeness. Your spirit is the part of you that connects to God. Psalm 11:3 says, “if the foundations are destroyed, what will the righteous do? Reset your foundation. Your foundation is your relationship with Jesus Christ and connection to the Holy spirit. Next, restore your mental and emotional wholeness. Being whole in the mind begins with letting go of all the baggage; whether it is unforgiveness, hate, anger, envy or whatever it is that has taken root in there. Let go of the pains of failed relationships, broken dreams, abusive marriages, hurt, unforgiveness, neglect, unfaithful spouse, bottled up emotions, unmet expectations, financial hardship, grief, deceit, divorce, separation, regrets of the past. Let go of the deep-rooted stuff. Let go and let God begin to heal you. God wants to set you free today, but you must be willing to yield.
Lastly, true wholeness cannot be achieved until you identify and begin to live out your purpose, because your purpose is the very reason you were created. So, how can you achieve total wholeness outside of your purpose? Your purpose is important to your self-esteem, satisfaction, contentedness, and sense of value in life.
IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?
He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.
Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at email@example.com. I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
I look forward to hearing from you.
