If you are struggling with your health, body, or your psychological condition. Before you go to change anything else there is something you must do first. It is vital to clean your heart first. The condition of your heart will bleed out into the rest of your body for good or ill, depending on what it is made of. I am not speaking of the muscle but your soul. What flows from your heart is either good or evil and it will have a great effect on the rest of your body and mind.
My son, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them and healing to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Proverbs 4:20-23
Clean the heart and the body will follow and heal. Just as a smashed toe makes your whole body ache. Causing even the stomach to turn and the heart to beat out of control. When your heart is diseased with sin, heartache, and bitterness, it has a detrimental effect on the rest of your body. Cry out to Jesus Christ in repentance for the forgiveness of your sins. Sin is what corrupts the soul and causes the crippling of the body. Jesus is ready to clean you up and scrub you clean from the inside out.
And Jesus said, “Are you also still without understanding? Do you not see that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the stomach and is expelled? But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person. For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, and slander. These are what defile a person. But to eat with unwashed hands does not defile anyone.” Matthew 15:16-20
When you are cleansed from the inside out, through the forgiveness of Jesus Christ, you can then put away the things that you have held onto, to hold you up for so long. His power is so great He created the heavens with a single word and He can heal you from all your diseases with words as well. He says, “you are forgiven!” His power to heal is much greater than the fraudulent promises of the doctors who earn a profit from your suffering.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagles. Psalm 103:1-5
Nothing is more refreshing than waking up in the morning, breathing the crisp clean air of being free from the devastating weight of your former sins. From the wickedness that once filled your heart with suffering, torment, and sorrow galore. From the sickness that used to keep you flat on the floor. Now wiped completely clean like a freshly scrubbed chalkboard, as good as new.
If you give up your grip on sin. If you throw yourself at the mercy of a loving and compassionate savior. Jesus is the one who died for your sin and it is Jesus who will flood your heart with love, joy, and peace, and heal it. He is the one who will heal you from the soul of your feet to the crown of your head, completely and totally. Because He is the great physician who heals from the inside out.
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might He increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted, but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:28-31
