What is Spiritual Health?

What is Spiritual Health?

Spiritual health is considered by many teachers and authors to be a good frame of mind. They seek to achieve this good frame of mind, by getting in touch with the inner self.

Finding out what lies beneath the surface that makes you tick, can help your frame of mind, but it will not lead to good spiritual health.

Spiritual health will only come with the acceptance of God’s love, followed by the regeneration of the human spirit, through the power of Jesus Christ.

Don’t close the door. We are not offering you a religious experience. You will find true spiritual health by becoming saturated with the very person of God. I encourage you to read further and learn something new today.

Spiritual Health Comes When You Worship God

Spiritual Health Is Far More than the Latest Self-Help Buzz Word.

If you believe God is a spirit, then you must believe in the spiritual realm of things. Let’s explore that realm a bit.

First and foremost, all believers need to ask themselves this question.
“Do I REALLY believe in the spiritual realm?” According to scripture and according to my own personal experience, the spiritual realm is real.

Jesus taught in John 4:23-24 that our God is a spirit and desires that we worship Him in spirit and in truth.

Yet the time is coming, and is now here, when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. Indeed, the Father is looking for people like that to worship him.

God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Look closely at this verse. God is a spirit.  And He is looking for people to worship Him in His spiritual realm. To me, this says the spirit realm is truth or reality.

Hebrews 11: 1-3 defines two realities: 1) things that are seen and 2) things that are not seen. The things that are seen represent the physical reality while things that are not seen represent the spiritual reality.

We know that our God exists in this spiritual reality.  He created the physical reality or realm, with His spoken word. Things unseen, created the things we see.

Now faith is the assurance that what we hope for will come about and the certainty that what we cannot see exists.
By faith our ancestors won approval.
By faith we understand that time (the age or the world) was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are invisible. (NIS. Comment and emphasis mine.)

Look at the same passage in the Amplified version of the Bible:

NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].
Heb 11:2 For by [faith–trust and holy fervor born of faith] the men of old had divine testimony borne to them and obtained a good report.
By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible.

We, as believers, tend to focus on physical things or the things we can see, when our focus should be placed on the spiritual reality, or things unseen. Our faith (or choosing to walk in faith) is the guarantee that what we hope for, while yet unseen, will manifest into physical reality.

This is why I teach that spiritual health, or a regenerated spirit, must come first. Through faith, our physical and mental health (the things we see) will manifest out of the spiritual realm (the things we don’t see.) In other words, we must connect with God in His spiritual reality first, achieving true spiritual health, then we will receive a blessing in the physical reality.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand

On The Healing Room – Christian Radio, we talked about entering the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus opened a portal, unleashing power that caused the earth to quake, rocks to break and dead bodies to come alive. The portal is still open and the Kingdom is still at hand.

The Woman at the Well by Denise Mistich of The Healing Room, Christian Radio

What was this dialogue between the Son of God and the woman at the well really about? Tune in as we look at this story from the Bible line by line and word by word. I promise you will hear the story as it has never been told.

The Human Spirit

The human being, according to scripture, consists of three parts: spirit, mind and body.  In Hebrews 4:12, for example, we learn that the soul (or your will, mind and emotions) is different from your spirit.

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

A Change of Focus

As our God is a spirit, our main focus is always to be on the spiritual realm, not the physical. Thus, our number one priority is not mental health, it is a spiritual rebirth and a spiritual relationship with God. Good mental health and physical health will follow. As instructed in Colossians 3:1-2, set your hearts on things above.

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

Access to His Realm

A spiritual relationship with God goes far beyond church going. It is a very personal and very intimate relationship with God, that can only be achieved once you fully believe that because of the work of Christ, you are completely forgiven. In Romans 5:1-2, Paul tells us that we have access to God and why.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,  through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.
