THERE IS A GARDEN PURE AND SWEET

WHERE ALL CAN SITE AT JESUS FEET

COME, ENCOUNTER AND EXPERIENCE



?WHAT IS INNER HEALING



Think about this for a moment. What does

?inner healing mean to you personally

What does inner healing mean to God as

He foresees the future for individuals

?for families, for nations

Webster's Dictionary states the word

INNER means the mind/ the spirit and

.the emotions of the inner man

The soul is the function of thinking

that consequently determines the choices

of ones will, thus determining ones

behavior along with the moral or emotional

nature of man. The soul is influenced by

the presence of God, by evil round about

.us, or by our own inner motivations

HEALING means: to be sound which can be

a process that brings physical and mental

well being, soundness along with normality

of mental and physical functions. It

involves having the power that heals

.restores or purifies


Wholeness involves spiritual healing that

affects the spirit along with the emotions

the thought processes, and the will to

subsequently make choices that thus affect

.the physical well being of an individual

Healing further denotes being saved from

the affects of disease. Healing is a result

of an act that denotes soundness, being

morally strong, honest, upright and virtuous

.causing us to be stable and secure

Inner healing thus includes the soul which

is the mind, the emotions and the will, which

is ultimately relevant to our general well

being. Christ is able to bring that inner

healing to the soul because we have opened

.our spirit to allow Christ into our life

Thus with the indwelling Holy Spirit, God

has given each of us the opportunity to

.access all that pertains to the reality of God



:Inner healing involves


THE EYE.............OUR FOCUS


THE EAR.............WHAT ARE WE HEARING AND
RESPONDING TO


THE MIND...........WHAT AFFECTS OUR THOUGHT LIFE


THE HEART.........WHAT AFFECTS OUR DESIRES AND

OUR MOTIVES


THE FEET............WHEREIN DO WE STAND AND SO WALK


THE HANDS.........REACTIONS TO VARIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES


THE MOUTH........WORDS



.Inner healing necessitates individuals having priorities

Jesus stated the need to take the time to take in that

which God would impart to us. We must take the time as

it were to sit at Jesus feet and to thus absorb all

.that He would impart into our life and our inner being

.There is a personal wholeness that we need to encounter

God watches over each individual, watering and guarding

His word whereby each one can encounter the peace with

God that is available. In so doing we need to take

root, to be rooted in who Christ is and to be aware

of that which He has done on our behalf. Rooted in the

reality of God's word and drinking in of His Spirit

which will bring forth the transformation that God

and only God can do in ones life. He gathers one by

one according to Isaiah 27 whereby we come to worship

.the Lord, to give honor and praise for who He is

We become partakers of that which is available to

those who choose to make Christ their Savior and

also their Lord. The fruit of His presence will thus

be manifest all in due season as we delight in His

Word and meditate on His concepts. We then live, as

God wants thereby applying the insight of His word

into our daily decisions. God's wisdom, when applied

produces results bringing forth good in ones actions

as well as ones attitudes. This involves time to read

His word, to think, to contemplate, to know, to

.meditate and to apply it in ones daily decisions

As we delight in His presence, the fruit of the Holy

.Spirit will be manifest in and through our life


The fruit of His presence is love, joy, peace

longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith

.meekness, temperance which is self control

We are called to daily walk in accordance

to the Spirit of God with His presence being

manifest in all we say and do. It begins

with the reality of Inner Healing, which is

truly one of God's most awesome gifts on

.our behalf


The Holy Spirit fills our innermost being

to do an inner cleansing. He plows, planting

the seed of God's word and then watering it

whereby we can personally enter into the

fullness God has intended for us. We

encounter the spiritual rest of being in

agreement with Christ. "It is not by

might, nor by power but by My Spirit" saith

the Lord Zech. 4:6 The word becomes bread

to the eater and as we are strengthened by

His word, the Spirit of God allows the oil

of His presence to well up and affect every

area of our life. Then it will become a

.seed to be sown


God's desire is to deliver us from all

that would hinder His plan and purpose

in our life. God has the ability to

thwart the enemies power, whereby we can

experience that which only God can and

will do in us, for us and subsequently

through us. He gives life and healing

along with an inner well-being. We are

able to discern, being enlightened and

receptive, to encounter the reality of

being one in Christ and we are able to

know the Father's love, thus we have the

Spirit of God as a mainstay in our life

.and being


Psalm 1 causes us to look at our walk

our stand and where we sit. This reveals

.conditions to encountering divine blessings

As we focus on Christ we discover as a child

of God, His Spirit resident in us and we are

planted with the fruit of a continued

relationship. Wesubsequently experience

fulfillment in encountering God's will and

perspective. His blessings will prosper that

which He has intended to do. The blessings

of godly or righteous choices come as a result

of fellowship and an encounter and relationship

.with God

.Inner Healing releases God's Blessings
