40 Benefits of Healing

I have spent a lot of time—a LOT of time—pursuing healing* because God has promised me I would be 100% healed, inside and out. That’s why I’ve spent a lot of time meditating on what a healed person could accomplish, if only he or she was healed. Below is a list I offer for your consideration. Please read it and let the Holy Spirit highlight to you what she wants to see happen in your life! Then, pray the prayer below (or another prayer that the Spirit leads you to pray) to start your own journey!

*I define healing as getting the effects of harm out of a person, and it’s partner—maturity—as getting the effects of wisdom into a person.
