A cough is a symptom of a cold that is caused by a weakened immune system. This could be prevented by eating more fruits and vegetables. It’s funny, because we usually get upset with the co-worker sitting next to us coughing, and we don’t understand it’s our bodies that have the power to reject it. When we take cough syrup we only suppress the cold. There is no cure for the common cold! However, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! This is the same for our spiritual lives.
In the spiritual realm, sin is the symptom, while unbelief is the root. So, if we have more faith, we have less sin. If we focus on sin, we will hit our target. However, if we focus on faith which comes by hearing the word of God we will manifest His inspiration.
Unbelief will keep us in a spiritual state of lameness, blindness, and deafness. We can be spiritually handicapped and leaning on crutches, glasses, and hearing aids that we do not need. We can only go so far by being dependent on these manmade devices. Prevention is formed through a constant prayer life, staying connected to the Father, & staying to the Word. There is a need to worship before the trial, before the sickness, before that bad relationship, prior to job loss, prior to the earthquake. We are obligated to praise in the time before the storm. Noah built the ark before the storm hit, not during.
Matthew 11:4-5: Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:
The blind receive their sigh, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
Let’s get to the root of our issues in life, through the Spirit. We can only suppress symptoms for so long, but we can never cure the infection with cough syrup. Let’s get away from drunkenness, the food addictions, the men, the women, the mother, the smoke, the drugs, the fear, the doubt. The all have us laying in the bed of deception. Wake up, take up your bed and walk. He has given us the power to prosper and get wealth in every facet of our lives.
We all go through our trials…NO ONE is exempt. Be prayerful, speak life, respect something higher than you, be grateful, and be just, He is watching.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
An example of an amazing woman who only treated her symptoms. I am guilty and I repent for unbelief. Pray for me as I will pray for all that are reading. Intercession is necessary for the believer and non-believer.
Be blessed and inspired. He is Real, He is Just!
