Your faith in God’s promises holds the power to make you whole. To be whole means to be well in mind, soul, spirit and body in the areas of your spiritual, emotional, relational, financial and physical health. As God’s children we inherit His kingdom blessings where there is no lack, nothing missing or broken (James 1). We just have to discover what is already ours by spending time getting to know God’s thoughts and ways to that makes us whole in mind, spirit, soul and body. God desires to bless us so we may experience total life wellness. Although we live in this broken world, we are not of this world mindset because our mind, soul, spirit and body was created to be in relationship with God’s Holy Spirit who gives us the faith to be whole. He desires that we be whole because He is whole (1 Peter 1:16).
Our life here on earth is a journey to discovering our authentic self where our wholeness becomes our everyday lifestyle. A journey back to our identity in Christ, which is the revealing of our true authentic selves. Understanding our blessed identity in Christ is what makes us whole. If you recall in Genesis the first thought God had towards us, was to be in His image and likeness of wholeness. The more we allow ourselves to be in the image and likeness of God, the more we become whole because God’s Holy Spirit in us is the source of our wholeness.
In Matthew 9:20- 23, do you recall the woman who was bleeding for over twelve years who had touched the fringe of Jesus clothing? When Jesus responded to her he said “Be of good cheer daughter, your faith has made you well.” It is our faith that makes us well in our mind, soul, spirit and body. Romans 10:17 tells us, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. The more we are in the presence of God’s living word, the more we position ourselves to hear the faith that holds the power to make us whole. Are you experiencing lack in any area of your life? Do you desire a change? Do you desire to be whole? I have come to give you good news, your faith in God has the power to make you whole. You see when the woman touched the hem of Jesus garment, this was a physical act that is rooted in a spiritual truth. Just like our clothing covers our body, the word of God is the spiritual covering of our mind, soul, spirit and body. God tells us in Matthew 24:35, “heaven and earth will pass away but My words will by no means pass away”, this is how strong God’s faith is in His word. You can say that God’s word is bond. You see God’s word is who He is because God’s word is His authentic identity.
The God kind of faith is rooted in the power of God’s word. Since God’s word is eternal this also means that God’s faith is eternal which means it is not limited by the seasons or time. Recognize that God’s faith is different from the world kind of faith. Just like God’s faith is rooted in the excellent wisdom of His word, the world’s faith is rooted in the futility of the world’s wisdom (Proverbs 8). The word of God reveals to us in 1 Corinthians 3:19 that the world’s wisdom is foolishness to God.
The written word of God is the seed of faith but the revealed word of God is the harvest of faith. When we sow seeds of faith in our spirit by spending time in God’s word, eventually we will reap the harvest of God’s revealed word. It is God’s revealed word that is the God kind of faith that holds the power to make us whole. The revealed word of God holds the secrets to making the impossible evidently possible. The revealed word of God is God’s specific living and powerful word of faith to you (Hebrews 4:12)making you whole in the areas of your spiritual, emotional, relational, financial and physical health.
