Jesus's healing & health steps?
Hum, I have a question I have been pondering for sometime (bear with me, it'll be a bit coming). I have read Jesse Duplantis's book Breaking the Power of Natural Law (wonderful book!) and found it so beneficial. The devil has been attacking my body severely since last December, I have caught the flu 5 or 6 times (I think 6, but cannot be positive) and I have never had this happen. I catch it, and read healing verse's aloud and prayer and it dissapaties very quickly, sometimes instantanously. I want to get to the point where I have enough faith to not get sick in the first place and be totally healed--from the top of my head to the bottom of my toes.
I've had problems with my liver as well, and it has not hurt like it did a couple of months ago since Walter (given the gift of miracles) laid his hands on me, but has still felt "iffy" and itchy at times. I have been trying to support it, and it has always remained to be my largest health problem in the last few years. I know that Jesus can heal instantly, and I have wanted an instant healing for so long, but I think perhaps God is teaching me patience in healing me bit by bit. My mom considers me to be a huge health nut, I'll try just about anything. She uses herbs as well and all, but I go a bit further I guess. So my question is...how far should I go using alternative methods for my health? Just eat right, exercise, take minerals and oxygen supplements and just try to take care of myself without thinking of them as having healing properties? I'm just not sure where to draw the line I guess. I know we do spring cleaning for our house once or twice a year, and my mom looks at cleanses as just spring cleaning, not healing measures. I have full faith in Jesus (I believe) and in our all powerful, all loving God, but I still have not found a clear answer in my heart from God as to where to draw the line. I just feel so strongly that God gave herbs healing powers, but I wonder if for the less faithful? I've seen wonderful things happen from herbs and other health measures, but still of all I have tried nothing has fully healed me. I know the Lord has helped these herbs work more effectively. I am seeking to know more of his healing power, and Klyd's recent prayer for Zule was just so beautiful. I must mention also that I have recently found complaining to be one of the root causes of why I feel I was not healed instantly, and feel thankful to the Lord for revealing this to me so that He can help me change this in my life.
