If you have a chronic condition that you are troubled with, ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you any areas in your attitudes and thought life that are affecting you. Let Christ really heal you down to the root of the disease.

Have you ever heard someone say, “That just galls me!” when irritated with someone? What about, “I was scared stiff!,” “I was so ashamed I couldn’t hold my head up!”, “He/she is a pain in the neck!”, “I am so mad I can’t see straight!”?

Sayings such as these seem to indicate that there is an internal knowledge among humans that our minds and attitudes affect our physical bodies. What we think and hold in our minds can make us sick, not just in the short term, but can make us have chronic health problems.

Is it any wonder that God called those who resisted Him and would not yield, “stiffnecked”?
Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as you fathers [did}, so [do] ye. (Acts 7:51) (Also see 2 Chr. 30:8 & 2 Kings 17:14)
The next time someone tries to talk you into something you don’t want to do, check yourneck muscles! Or just watch anyone else who is being stubborn and inflexible at the moment. Watch the shoulders rise, the neck muscles get stiff,and the jaw muscles bulge. And you don’t think that our attitudes affect our bodies? They most certainly do, and not just on a temporary basis.

Face Reading
There is now a new technique called “face reading” that has amazed people by its accuracy. The basic premise is that all the experiences of your life create readable facial lines and expressions.

Our thought patterns and emotional responses to those experiences become a living record etched in your face. Have you ever looked at someone and thought, “Wow, they look like they have had a hard life.” Grief, pain, substance abuse, and kindness are manifest in the cells of the human body, and can be read in the most obvious part exposed to the world, the face. If our minds and emotions show in our face, think what happens in the other cells of the body...the liver, pancreas, heart, kidneys etc. It is not what happens in life that affects our cells as much as it is our reaction to those experiences.

Let Go Of What Makes You Sick
In Luke, chapter 5, verse 15, the Bible says, “But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.”

The people came to hear and to be healed. Something that they heard helped them to be healed. Yes, they heard that Jesus was anointed but they also heard His message. The Sermon on the Mount was probably the essence of Jesus’ message. (Matt 5, 6, & 7) That message was one of love, forgiveness, and overcoming evil with good. The people that Jesus was speaking to were terribly oppressed by the religious leaders of the day. They had good reason to hate and hold grudges, but Jesus taught them how to let go of what was eating them alive. (Resentment and bitterness can literally eat you alive and make you sick.)

Yes, the anointing will heal, but what if the root of the disease was not dealt with? The hatred would cause the physical problems to return. Yes, the anointing was present to heal, but it was also present to teach them how to maintain that healing. A big part of the healing ministry was to teach people to let go of things that make them sick.

You may have stepped into the prayer line for healing of a tension headache and when hands were laid on you the headache left. You have temporary relief. But if you don’t learn to deal with the tension in a healthy manner or eliminate some of it, you will continue to have tension headaches.

Now, lest you go around judging those who are seeking treatments for stiff necks and headaches, let me say that there are organic and situational causes for sickness and disease also. Perhaps that person with a stiff neck was in an auto accident and has whiplash. There are genetic predispositions, as well such as diabetes, heart problems, cancer, etc.

However, with the Word of God and our confession, we can reverse those tendencies. James says that we can set on fire the wheel of nature, that is our genetic inheritance. (James 3:2-6)

If you have a chronic condition that you are troubled with, ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you any areas in your attitudes and thought life that are affecting you. Let Christ really heal you down to the root of the disease.
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
(John 8:36)
