Emotional Healing - What You Need to Know First
There are many ways emotional healing is approached. Some look for healing to flow from the outside in. While others look for healing to flow from the inside out.
But what if we first approached emotional healing from the inside out?
When we become aware that we are SPIRIT beings with a SOUL and live in a BODY... healing will flow naturally from the inside out!
I am reminded of Proverbs 4:23
"Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it."
Let's look a bit closer.
Our spirit communicates with God.
Our body communicates via the world.
But our soul (mind, will & emotions) live somewhere in between. That place called tension!
There always seems to be this resistance "between" the two. A battle that wars on the inside of our soul where one must eventually yield to the other.
Our soul submits to our body and listens to what the world tells us. Or our soul submits to our spirit and what God tells us. One stirs up fear, whereas the other brings peace. One is a temporary, and the other lasting.
The world would have us believe that healing comes from the outside in. That there is always something we must "do more" and "be more" before we can "become more".
But from a Biblical perspective, true emotional healing comes from receiving more - from the inside out.
True healing comes from within our spirit, our heart. Our heart is the inward part of us, our meeting place with God. It's where that river of life bubbles up and flows over, releasing healing and freedom... physically, mentally, and emotionally.
This is how you were designed to heal. Naturally, from the inside out!
My prayer for you today is taken from I Thessalonians 5:23.
Now, may the God of peace and harmony set you apart, making you completely holy.
And may your entire being—spirit, soul, and body—be kept completely flawless in the appearing of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One.
Here's to our healing from the inside out!
