I suspect we’ve all had moments we were blindsided with unexpected news, results, accidents ….
In that moment, frozen in time, when the world shifts on it’s axis, you have a split second to decide how you will take the unexpected. Your brain, body, and spirit will then align with the decision you make to receive or reject that news. Your physical and mental healing depends on that decision.
I’ve been witness to xrays, mri’s, ct scans showing the worst of the worst, and the person said, what’s the treatment? Or how long do I have?
I’ve been witness to those same terrible diagnostic results and yet the person said – nope, not today. I am healed. I choose to walk in healing and I command my body to line up as such. And then proceeds to get their prayer chains involved. Seek rejuvenating heart and mind influences.
I am not here to say which decision is correct. I have also seen people choose to claim healing and they were healed on Jesus’ side of heaven instead of this one. I am not God and I have no earthly understanding of why some who claim it are healed here and some there.
I’ve seen those who were healed in heaven also leave a legacy of truth that continues to speak into the lives of others long after they’ve been birthed into their eternal home.
What do I know? Isaiah 43:2 –
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
Through the rivers and fire, God still remains on His throne. He still remains holy. He has the best plan He desires for you, me, every one of us. In the midst of those rivers and fire, we have to choose to praise Him, to love Him, to surrender in honest abandon to His perfect love. He will walk with you through it all. He will because He is the one who created you, knows you, loves you with an everlasting love.
In this world, we WILL have trouble but take HEART, He has overcome the world! He knows the shortcuts, the secret staircases, and the hidden rooms. He made them. He will lead you through it all. Trust in Him. He knows you more than you know yourself. Do you know how many hairs are on your head? He does. He knows why your little pinky toe has half a nail. He knows why only your toe on your left foot pops all the time. He knows why you like to sleep on your right side.
He knows all your whys… And He knows what it felt like for you to be blindsided because He was there with you. You were not alone. He was there.
The next time you are blindsided, make a split-second decision to say, No, NOT TODAY! I am His and He is mine. I will choose to praise Him in this. I choose to call life to my body, my situation. I choose to say, Lord speak into this. I speak shalom and amen over my circumstances, in Jesus’ name.
