What an appropriate subject for this month of October.
If you read my last post you know I am going through some struggles with tendinitis or specifically lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow.) As I have been going to physical therapy two to three times a week over the course of the last month I find myself bringing up the subject that I at one time had Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a very debilitating syndrome with muscle pain throughout the entire body. I began to realize that I was being haunted. If you think about it what does being haunted mean? Isn’t it being harassed by the spirit of someone (or something) who (that) has died?
I may have had Fibromyalgia, but I was healed from it by the power of God through a healing service. I haven’t had it since that time over 13 or 14 years ago. Yet every time I have an aching muscle or even go in for a massage I allow it to haunt me. I speak of it as if it may be lurking somewhere in this house which is my body.
I began to think about what other “spirits” I have allowed to haunt me. What parts of the “old man” that were put to death in Jesus Christ, do I have wandering the halls of my mind, harassing my thoughts. I think its time to take account and exorcise those “spirits” and be free from their influence. What’s dead is dead and it is the truth of Jesus’ victory over death, over sin, and his rightful authority over disease – it is this truth that sets me free.
