To start off, I’ve been set free from the world of psychotropic drugs after being institutionalized 4 times in the last year. I found herbal alternatives at a place in South Irving my wife pointed out known as Years to Your Health on 2nd street. I learned through holistic journals that there are herbal cures for just about every known illness. Although you better pray that God leads you in the way Everlasting before you research these because many Holistic followers are very New Age worshippers of the herb itself rather than the One who put it there. This could be a great ministry to them if those that know God who are enslaved to the corrupt pharmaceutical empire to suddenly be set free. They would bow down in worship and strive to want to set other christians and nonchristians free. Don’t assume just because you’ve been “saved” means you’re set free. As a fiery Pentecostal friend of mine once said: “This ain’t some kind of Once Saved Always Saved.” In other words you have to persevere and seek after God and His righteousness in order to be filled. And it’s not by works but works must be evident. It’s by daily surrender, or baptism, to the Holy Spirit and allowing Jesus His rightful role as Lord of your life. One of Satan’s tools to cripple those that love God and seek to follow after Him is illness. Yes, illness is a result of the Fall of Man. But it doesn’t have to be your thorn in the flesh or your cross to bear. God doesn’t want you to be sick or be in bondage to huge medical/prescription bills that keep you from tithing to programs that further His Kingdom. A Saint’s thorn is his burden to reach lost people and all the other struggles Satan throws at him on a daily basis to keep him from doing his Master’s work. The thorn is the Believer’s unmet need that keeps him dependent on his Lord. You don’t have to be a victim and just accept the status quo. God doesn’t call you to accept mediocrity as a way of life. He calls you to step out in faith and release the power that is within you to draw others to Himself. If every spirit-filled worshipper knew the power they held and their identity in Christ the Great Commission might have a stronger effect and the world would be a better place. However if you haven’t realized there’s more to salvation than just being “saved” at a given point in your life or if you haven’t realized the extent of your newfound identity, then you need to seek God with all your heart, confess any unknown sins and renounce them and seek to be baptized, or filled, with His Spirit on a daily basis and look for opportunities to reach out to people who are in bondage-whether they know God or not. If you don’t know God you really need to consider the last few sentences, and read through some of these other blogs.
