Divine Health -Emotional Health 2- Put Off The Earthly and Put On The Heavenly Lens
Eph 4:22-24 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Conversation means manner of life. Once you are born again, you need to change the way you live your life. Putting off the old way of living which is self-centred, carnal and worldly and putting on the biblical and Spirit led living which is sincere, holy and true. That means choosing the way we think and feel. There are thoughts and feelings that we must reject and renounce. We refuse to be part of them, refuse to allow them to manifest in our lives through the mind ,mouth and action. Feelings follow your thoughts and thoughts follow your belief. When you change your thoughts according to your belief or your faith which is the Word of God, you change your emotions to be holy and true, so they become positive, constructive and uplifting for you. Perspectives are very powerful, if your perspective is of the self, self-pity and competitiveness can easily set in and produce feelings of hurt, offence, rejection and dejection; or pride sets in and manifests emotions of condescension, judgmentalism, aloofness and discrimination. As Christians we are to live through the eyes of Jesus, of the Word of God. That is the way to see situations and people. Then, insights, compassion, prayers, supernatural strength and commanding authority will manifest in your life. You develop a High- Above Heavenly perspective that lifts us up above all the cares, troubles, hatred and fear of this world, thereby protecting us. Choose freedom over entanglement. Negative feelings can be like ropes that bind a person until he is suffocated to death; snap them off by the Sword of the Spirit and enjoy the fresh air, the freedom of Spirit filled, Spirit led, Bible centred living!

Divine Health -Emotional Health 1- The Choice Is YoursJos 24:15 choose you this day whom ye will serveWhen God created us, He puts emotions into our soul with which we can interact with the world around us. When we see the beauty of nature, we exclaim praise and wonder; when we interact with people, we express kindness and friendliness; when we worship God, we express adoration and exaltation. Emotions are created to be supportive and expressive of our excellent spirit. Positive emotions are warm, nourishing, edifying, assuring and uplifting; for ourselves, others and toward God! Living with positive emotions contributes greatly towards good personal mental and physical health; healthy and strong family relationships and a prosperous working environment. On the other hand negative emotions are very destructive, tormenting and devastating. Every day people in the world are being bombarded with negative emotions like fear, hate, rejection, dejection, offence, sorrows and anxiety all the time! Some fall into romantic infatuations over and over again, just to be disappointed, hurt and abused! Some tend to believe that there is nothing you can do about your feelings, they come and go as the situation arises; sometimes positive, most of the time negative. Feelings are mixed for that is part of being human and you just have to live with them. There are places that you can go to for a high or stress release like clubs, cinemas and theme parks, while some love to be thrilled or scared by doing giant drops, sky diving and bungee jumping! So they fall as victims to chemical reactions or emotional manipulations of situations and demonic devices! The question is Emotions, can you trust them? Feelings, what can you do about them? The ecstasy of heavenly joy, the happiness of a heart-felt laughter, the cries of deep, sorrowful hurts, the screams of tormenting fear! Is it possible for us to pick and choose to have just the good feelings? The answer from the Bible is “ Absolutely YES”!Deu 30:19 I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may liveWe should never neglect “Divine Health”.

Divine Health 3- Tenacity vs Sensitivity and FragilityPsa 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with meYour “holding power” against the attacks of the devil is vital for victory! The Bible compares believers to Warriors, Overcomers, More Than Conquerors. Soldiers and Generals are tough people, they are tenacious against the onslaughts of the enemy. They hold strong in the front lines of the battle field so the enemy cannot break in! Your mind is your gate to the rest of your body, so mental strength is vital for health. The mind is fortified by what you hear, what you believe in. The bible says we must renew our mind so that we don’t think like the people of the world! The world is ruled by fear, the kingdom of Jesus Christ is governed by faith. The Lord says to reason with Him in the Word not against Him. Reasoning with the Lord in the Word develops mental, emotional, volitional and physical strength.Pro 18:14 The strong spirit of a man sustains him in bodily painYou have a spiritual immune system that fortifies you against the attacks of the evil one. Build up that immunity by meditating on and practising the Word; it shall surely protect you!Choose to be strong not weak, tough not fragile. Fragility and sensitivity are the carnal attitudes of a dependent and manipulative mind. It says that I need to be weak, to be needy in order to have my way! There are those who would rather stay sick in order to have government welfare than to be healed! Trust in the Lord’s protection instead of worrying about the devils’ attacks. Choose to live by a positive disposition instead of a negative one. Say with DavidPsa 23:4 … I will fear no evilChoose not to fear problem, sickness and devils. Imagine and see yourself strong, fierce against the demons; holding forth the Sword of the Spirit defeating them. Confess the Word over yourself and it will change your weakness into strength supernaturally!Pro 23:7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is heHow you see yourself is vital for success and victory! See yourself strong, tough, victorious; a victor, a champion, a leader and a winner for the Lord Jesus Christ! Take a minute to minister to yourself and say:-I am a victor not a victim! I am the head not the tail, proactive not passive, triumphant and not victimized! In Jesus name! Amen!We should never neglect “Divine Health”.

Divine Health 2- God’s Absolute Will Is HealthIt is not the will of God for people to be sick, sickness is due to the presence of sin and evil in this fallen world! God calls sickness wickedness i.e. not to be tolerated, but expelled out of the house! Devils are like pests, they are called by what they do: deaf, dumb, mute, blind spirits etc; they come uninvited and seek to take over your territory; so we must be very persistent and aggressive against their invasion! Whatever we tolerate will stay, even if it has to stay in the backyard, rumpus room or toilets! We must therefore develop an intolerant attitude towards all evil, especially sickness and disease! Words in the Bible spoken to demons are: Bind, Rebuke, Curse, Command etcMar 9:25 When Jesus … rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!”Jesus did not pray to the Father to remove the devils; He took authority over them with Words of Faith and Power !Mat 21:21“Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done.That mountain is sickness(es) which is seemingly so insurmountable to you, yet what you need is:-Faith, being sure of God’s willSay, command with authorityThen, you shall surely evict the devil from your house for the promise is: it will be done! Please understand that the devil is called the wicked one, he is deceiving. He will put thoughts in your mind, causing you to doubt, fear, worry and reason in the natural against the Word of the Spirit. He will use “ the passage of time” to talk you out of your faith! So, you must train yourself to be committed to God’s unwavering, unchanging, unfailing Word. Believe in Divine Healing at all times, and your eyes will be blessed to see them manifest in your body and those that you pray for.have faith and do not doubtBelieve God not the devil, the answer not the problem, goodness, not evil! For Jesus Has already Won and given you the Power Of Attorney to evict the evil one!Luk 10:19Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.We should never neglect “Divine Health”.
