The greatest cure for chronic diseases (dis ease) is to forgive. I knew a woman who had chronic sinus infections and the doctors could find nothing wrong with her except for the mucus. She called my wife and I to complain (again) and the Lord had me ask her if she had been hurt as a child. She paused for such a long time I thought she hung up. She started to explain something, and hung up. Three days later she called back. I asked the same question. She asked how I could know this. I told her it was the Lord. She explained that her mother used to beat her and her siblings and she being the oldest would try and protect the others. She harbored great hatred for her mother. I told her she had to forgive her. She hung up again. A week later she called back explaining how impossible it was for her to forgive her mother. I told her she had to. And again, she hung up. Once again she called and she said she couldn't forgive her mother because she was dead. I told her she still had to forgive her because the forgiveness isn't for the attacker, but for the victim. She finally relented and she forgave her mother. Immediately she was healed.
Scientists are finding a great link between harboring negative emotions that have festered for decades and manifesting physically in the body. The scriptures show this truth.
3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Proverbs 23:7a For as he thinketh in his heart, so [is] he: ...
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Negative emotions are absolute poison. They affect our cells and can even compromise our DNA. This is real medical science. Bitterness, anger, guilt, regret, fear, they’re all poisonous. Bad emotions can literally kill you. Forgive others, forgive yourself, forgive circumstances, and let things go. That counsel isn’t in the Bible as a joke. It isn’t a suggestion. It can actually save your life.
You know how the Bible says that laughter doeth good like medicine? I heard a person testify of being sick to the point of death when they came upon that scripture. They got a bunch of cartoons and funny movies and watched them over a weekend, laughing continuously, and their health gradually improved after that. There are so many things in the Bible we tend to dismiss that could save our lives.
they have known for a while that stress kills. it messes with your heart, stomach, have you ever seen some of the black and white films of men after a war? twitching and unable to speak at all or some have developed a studder.
and Butero beat me to the scripture about laughter... that as the first thing that came to mind when reading the OP.
I have been so stressed before it was effecting my health. my heart, my head, even my sinuses. i had to come to that place where i said i got to stop this or its going to be the end of me... and just let it go. no more. the thought begins and nope, stop... happy thoughts. i could literally feel my blood pressure fluctuate back down.
there is a reason God gives us peace. and its not just because it feels good.
What i learned in stopping the stress is i cant change the color of the hair on my head... but i can REST in HIM. and many cant or wont receive this but how we feel is a choice. God cares for us that much that He is there for us and all we have to do is be faithful in calling upon Him. And He is right there. Our Helper, Our Deliverer, our Shelter.. its not always an instant poof all better, but He does care for us like this. I saw a video, maybe off this website where will smith was talking about how He had become addicted to conflict and his brain was seeking it out... his system was trying to level out. trying to get its fix, like a junkie looks for dope. our fallen nature is,... well, there is no good thing in the flesh. none. we have to put God first in everything, seek Him out in every situation. if we dont there are "side effects" and they all bring death in some way. Being of the right Spirit influences every part of our being.
TO a christian and really even a nonbeliever... every experience, every moment is Spiritual... and God said Behold, I set before you life and death, good and evil. But He continues on to tell us to Choose life, and good... that we, and our offspring may LIVE. and He gives life and life more abundantly... we cant even see it how deep it goes. we are unaware of how He is for our good in all ways and at all times. God is so Good. so good.
His yoke is easy, and His burden is light.
Hos 6:6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
