Yes God will heal you!   I could start with a witty joke or a touching story, but frankly what you want to know is if God can and will heal you.  The answer is YES!

YES He can heal you.  NO He does not want you to live this way.  YES everything can be worked out for your good.  YES I am sure.  YES I have experienced what you have gone through, and YES He did heal me, and YES He wants to heal you too.

You might think “What is the catch?”.  The only catch is listening to Him and obeying Him.  He has provided everything you need to be healed right there in you, and in His Word.  You are not missing anything.  He has given you every key to open every door, you just might not know it yet.  You have ever tool you need, you just might not know how to use them.  You have every puzzle piece, you just might not know how they fit.  All YOU have to do is to do what He says, and you will be healed.

Yes, it is that simple.  YES, it is THAT SIMPLE.

Now, right now you might be feeling one of two things.  Either a giddy, doubting but very hopeful feeling OR a less giddy, very doubting, and not very hopeful feeling.  You might be thinking that this is too good to be true, that you are too sick, too far gone….

Nonsense.  Understand the reason that you can be healed is because the Lord made your brain.  He knows what you are going through, He knows that there is sin in your life, a struggle with thought patterns and fears.  He created the exquisite mental chemistry, the play of electrical impulses and human cells.  He created that, and He knows how to fix it.  Does the inventor of a car know how the car he invented runs?  Of course.  Would you not consider the inventor of a bulldozer fully equipped to fix that bulldozer?  Of course.

You do not have to worry about what God knows, He is going to tell you.  All you have to worry about is listening and obeying Him.  He is going to push you out of your comfort zone, but He is right there to give you the tools to do it.  He is going to have you change your bad mental habits, but He will replace them with new ones.  You will be made new in your mind:  Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. NKJV

You will be a new man.  Your thoughts will not hold you captive any more.  You will see that your fears, EVERY SINGLE ONE of your fears, was a paper tiger-  something that looked scary but did not have the power to actually hurt you.  You will learn techniques for controlling panic/anxiety attacks.  You will learn that you do not have to live this way and the choice is YOURS to continue to do so.

You do not have to be afraid. He loves YOU and wants YOU to be healed.  Not just because you are His child, holy and dearly loved (Eph 5:1 Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children NIV), but also because you cannot praise Him if you are too afraid to speak.  You cannot  show the love of Christ for others if you cannot leave your house.  Your treasure is not in heaven if your treasure is piled up high in mounds of stuff in your living room.  You cannot rest in the Lord if you are too anxious to sleep.  He cannot be your God if your god is your stomach.  You cannot focus on Him, if you are focusing on you and what you think are dangers to you.  You cannot revere the Lord in Holy Fear if you are terrified of things that “might happen” on earth.  You cannot show peace if you are not peaceful.  You cannot show joy if you are not joyful.  You can only teach and show to others what you know, and right now you know only fear and trepidation, illness and dread.

No, He does not want to save you just for you, but also for Him and to do the work that He has for you.   He wants you better, you want you better.  So let’s start on making you better. No better time than the present!
