Finding Spiritual Wholeness
Have you ever prayed for healing? Maybe you prayed for physical healing from a disease, or emotional healing from a broken heart. Maybe you needed spiritual healing from a chronic sin or addiction. We all desire to be healthy and whole, especially in our desperation for spiritual wholeness and peace.
The Holy Spirit promises us a healing spirituality through a relationship with Him. When we are sealed by the Holy Spirit and marked as one of God's children and when we daily seek to be filled by the power of the Holy Spirit, then we will bear the fruit of the Spirit. Jesus said, "Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit" (Matthew 12:33). We will only find spiritual wholeness if we manifest the fruit of the Spirit -- not through false spirituality found in meditation, self-help books, or motivational seminars.
Many Christians do not live up to their end of the bargain. Once they have been sealed by the Holy Spirit, they forget to seek His filling every day. They neglect their relationship with God. They begin to doubt His promises. They are living in turmoil when they could be experiencing spiritual health and wholeness.
Prayer: God, I want to be spiritually healthy and whole. I pray that Your Spirit would fill me every day so that I will manifest the fruit of the Spirit. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
"I said, 'Have mercy on me, Lord; heal me, for I have sinned against you'" (Pslm 41:4).
