HEALING FROM STRESS
One of the most requested areas of help today is from people suffering from stress.
One medical source defines stress as: “Forces from the outside world impinging on the individual.” However, I disagree with this definition – or, at least I think it is only a partial definition.
As a graduate industrial engineer, I was required to study and know such subject matter as: Strength of Materials, Dynamics, Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis, and, of course, upper level physics and chemistry. I find it interesting that the physical (or, physics) definition of stress is two fold and more correctly applicable to the human genome:
An applied external force or system of forces that tends to strain or deform a body.
The internal resistance of a body to such an applied force or system of forces.
Therefore, as pertains to the human condition, we could accurately say that stress (either from external or internal forces) is: “a mentally, physically, or emotionally disruptive or upsetting condition occurring in response to adverse external or internal influences and capable of affecting physical health, usually characterized by increased heart rate, a rise in blood pressure, muscular tension, irritability, and depression.”
Since we are a tripartite being (body, mind, spirit) we can reasonably assume that stress can affect us: physically, mentally, and spiritually … and that, since all three are interconnected, either one may also influence the others. The synergistic effect of which could produce total wreck, or breakdown! This is WHY some people who come to me for help seem to at first be manifesting total meltdown.
Let me give you the four KEY curatives to this, and lesser, conditions:
1. STOP the activities that seem to be causing you stress. If you can not stop them completely, then force yourself to take pre-scheduled breaks for rest or recreation. (A non scheduled break could be as soon as you feel the outset of anxiety or stress.)
2. DO something you enjoy. Find a new hobby or recreation … do something you have always wanted to do. Ride a motorcycle. Fly an airplane. Build something. Learn to dance.
3. SPEAK affirmations to yourself. Write them on paper, or record them and play them back. The importance is TO SAY them to yourself. The speech mechanism is vitally associated with your central nervous system. You can bring healing and strength to your whole system, especially if you are saying the Word of God. Find scriptures that pertain to: 1. Your situation; and, 2. Your new goals (recreation or desires).
4. PRAY in tongues.
A. When you pray in tongues, you are praying according to the will of God, even if you do not understand it. “He who, when speaking, uses the gift of 'tongues' is speaking, not to men, but to God, for no one understands him; yet in spirit he is speaking of hidden truths.” (1 Corinthians 14:2)
B. Also, when you even just sigh (or groan) in tongues, you are allowing the Holy Spirit to intercede for you according to the will of God, and thereby bring you therapeutic help. “Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because he makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” (Romans 8:26-27)
C. One of the great advantages when you praise God in tongues is that you are engaged in pure worship. There are not enough words in your native language (Hebrew, English, Spanish, etc.) to tell God how wonderful He is, and how much you love Him. However, when you praise Him in tongues, the Holy Spirit (the Ruach haChodesh) is praising the LORD through you, and God comes on the scene with healing power. The Bible tells us that God lives in the praises of His people. “But you are holy, You who inhabit the praises of Israel.” (Psalm 22:3)
Lift your hands and PRAISE Him in tongues right now. If you have never received this POWER, then go to: How To Receive God's Power for instruction. Or, read the unabridged book by Prince Handley, How To Receive God's Power with Gifts of the Spirit.
