Frontlines :: August, 2015 :: Spiritual Roots to Healing :: Nathan & Dawn Pietsch

By: Dawn R. Pietsch

I have been reading a great book, called: “A More Excellent Way.” In this book it says that there are spiritual roots to our healing! In other words, when we are not seeing our healing, it’s because of spiritual roots of sin, and iniquity within us, or our generations, that can be keeping us from receiving our healing. That may cause a stirring within you just hearing those words... but hear me out!
If we have unconfessed sin from our past, it could be hindering us. Just because we don’t remember it anymore, doesn’t mean it’s not affecting us. And just because we remember it everyday since it happened, doesn’t mean that we should just ignore it, or push it aside. Jesus paid for it on the Cross, so shouldn’t we appropriate the finished work of the cross, and the shed Blood of Jesus for these things?

This book goes on to say that most sickness, disease, and infirmities that Jesus paid for are a direct result of some kind of sin... Wow! You mean I need to confess something? Most diseases, infirmities, and sickness have a correlation with fear, stress, and anxiety... some also have a “rider” attached with self hatred, bitterness, and self rejection. Medical science also agrees with this... because there are chemical reactions in our bodies that are affected in these kinds of situations. Our bodies go into “Fight or Flight,” when encountering fear, stress, and anxiety. The longer we stay in these situations the more we are prone to disease and infirmities. Unforgiveness plays a huge role in these situations also. So, it all goes back to the biblical principles of forgiving one another.

If each one of us took the time to make an inventory of all our woes, we would probably come up with a sizeable list still lingering. It’s time for the body of Christ to get to work, with the help of The Holy Spirit leading us, and deal with these undone issues. It doesn’t take much to look around at those closest to us and see that we are in need of a Savior, and Jesus Christ is the One who has all the answers. Yes, He is the One who offers Salvation, but He also delivers us from these problems. Thank you, Jesus... that You are the same yesterday, today, and forever!!! And He loves you with an everlasting love, and desires to see you healthy and flourishing.
