Anger, depression, mental illness, and suicide are all real issues that people are facing today. With over 16 million Americans experiencing depression in a given year and over 18% experiencing an anxiety disorder this issue also proves to be one that will continue to need to be addressed in the future. The age of death of those over 45 million folks with serious mental illness is around 25 years younger than the average, and the mentally ill are also at an increased risk of suicide.
In Acts 10:38 the Bible says “..God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” I am not a counselor or a physician and counseling and proper healthcare can significantly benefit people facing these issues. I am however, a believer in the healing power of God to supernaturally heal people emotionally and physically. I completely believe this healing is available for us today! I don’t have a formula for you to follow to receive healing from God, but I can encourage you to cry out to God and ask him to heal you! I know that God cares for you and every part of your health and well being. The Bible says in Luke 11:13, If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? I know that the Holy Spirit dwelling in you brings peace and wholeness because no matter how hard life gets you are never alone if you have God with you.
I believe that God can heal you and set you free. Trust Him now, read the Word of God, and spend time in the presence of God today! Run to Jesus! He will never leave you or forsake you and he is the healer of all of our diseases! I believe that He can and will bring healing and peace to you that you never believed was possible.
