Healing - Spiritual
The original Greek word for salvation in the Bible is "Soteria." It means deliverance, rescue, safety, and perseverance. Scripture indicts salvation is for our complete being, for our body, soul, and spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Jesus came to deliver us, restore us, and make us complete in Him. The salvation experience is given to us to make this a reality in our life. Healing is a part of that experience. The biblical definition of the word healing means to cure or make whole.
Spiritually: When we are born again, we become new creatures in Christ. Our spirit is recreated, regenerated, and remade in the image of Jesus.
"If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things have passed away, behold all things have become new" (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).
"But it is from Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God [revealing His plan of salvation], and righteousness [making us acceptable to God], and sanctification [making us holy and setting us apart for God], and redemption [providing our ransom from the penalty for sin]" (1 Corinthians 1:30 Amplified Version).
Our newly recreated spirit now resides with our old soulish realm and physical body. Our goal as Christians is to allow our spirit to override our soul and flesh. This is accomplished by a decisive decision to walk in the spirit (Galatians 5:16).
Fasting is a spiritual exercise that empowers our spirit. It allows us to hone into the things of God, which provides the power to overcome our soul and flesh. Anticipate an increase in spiritual encounters as you fast.
Father, thank you for your Son, Jesus Christ. In you, I receive the healing and grace that you won for me on the Cross. I speak against the lies the enemy has spoken over my life and choose to speak your word. Amen.
