Healing — More to Learn
On June 19th of this year, I had a dream about healing that was very instructive. In the dream, I was doing a community outreach to teach and demonstrate healing. The dream focused on my interaction with one person, who was skeptical that he could be healed. As I spoke with him about healing, and prayed for him, nothing happened and he became despondent and even more convinced that he could not be healed. The outreach was a failure…except that it made me realize I had a lot more to learn about healing.
So in the next part of the dream I went home and learned more about healing. After a while I returned to the outreach and met up with the same man. This time I had a completely different approach to the healing process. That’s where the dream ended. A few days before I had this dream I struggled terribly at work with anger toward a co-worker. As I found out a few weeks later, the anger stemmed from an emotional issue from my past that was being triggered by certain situations that I run into at work from time to time. Eventually I realized that I need to be healed in this area, so I sought out the help of a friend who took me through the emotional healing process and the wound related to that issue was healed. This week I stumbled upon a few more wounds from my past that still need healing.
This entire realm of emotional healing is something I’m just beginning to learn about. As I teach others what I’ve learned, I’m deep in the process of being healed and learning how healing works myself. Sometimes I’m only a few days ahead of the people I’m teaching. There is so much we have yet to discover about the process of healing; especially in the area of healing emotional wounds and fragmented souls. Even though I wrote a book that teaches about healing, and I’ve seen thousands of people healed, many times I feel completely unprepared when it comes to healing certain people of certain conditions. So if you ever feel like you’re unprepared for the things God has asked you to do, take heart. I’m right there with you.
A couple of years ago I had a dream where I was attending my first day of college and I had to pick the subjects I wanted to learn about. That dream made me realize that although I’ve learned a lot already, I’m just beginning the learning process. There are many things to learn about the kingdom of God that I’ve never yet considered.
Thanks for walking the road with me as we learn together. Stay tuned for more lessons from the school of the Holy Spirit.
