Faith and Health

What is faith and what is its connection to health and healing?

More and more faith is being heralded as the answer to life’s many ills, within both the Believing and secular world.  One of the ways faith is emphasised is through the faith and health connection, research across various fields has shown that at the very least faith is a predictor of overall health and well-being.

But, what is faith?

When I first fell ill it seemed like the only advice I received from others in the church was ‘have faith’. I felt that not only were they far removed from the reality of my day-to-day living experiences but they offered me no support in relation to understanding what faith is and how I could receive it.

It was as a consequence of my own experiences and I now realise is the experience of many of YHWH’s people who are suffering with a health related issue, that I realised the lack of support and good teaching available in this area.  I became tired of listening to prosperity teachers and deliverance ministers who seemed to think there was a formulaic equation to receiving healing.

I began to see and understand that the faith and health connection is so much more than what is currently being taught because of our limited understanding of the words ‘faith and health’; through developing a definition of faith and health in line with God’s own heart and mind we begin to uncover His promise of Divine Healing.

Below you will find a range of free and affordably-priced resources that will help you to answer the following questions:

  • What is faith?
  • What is health and healing?
  • How are faith and health connected?
  • How can I receive the healing touch of YHWH God in my life?

The Secret Place: Ten Reflective Meditations to build Trust in God & reduce Anxiety (Florence Ukpabi) PB

The Secret Place: Ten Reflective Meditations to build Trust in God & reduce Anxiety (Florence Ukpabi) PB A collection of ten reflective meditational studies based on psalm 91, these studies have been especially developed to combat stress, reduce fear-induced anxiety whilst building trusting faith in God and His Word. Each study started off as notes in my journal after being led to personally meditate on Psalm 91 due to high levels of fear and doubt. I found that I could use the meditations to help me reflect on my relationship with God and His relationship with me and as such I was able to develop a greater level of trust and faith in Him and His plans for my life. Each study consists of a meditation, reflection and prayer. The meditations encourage a deeper level of healing and spiritual growth which is then developed through guided personal reflection followed by a time of prayer. Each study provides you with space to write down your thoughts and impressions as you journey through this healing psalm. And best of all, there is no limit to how often you can take this journey.

Thank you for the copies of your book. I began reading the first chapter last night and it was so good I read onto the second chapter. My husband is away on business and normally I don’t sleep as well when he is away, but last night I fell asleep quickly and remained asleep all night!

You simply cannot read this book and not make changes to your life to be more healthy. Dr. Colbert has the gift to explain all pillars of our health and how they are affected by what (and how much) we eat, or drink, and how exercise is key ... just to name a few. You learn something new every day, indeed! I love this book so much I also have it on CD, too. My husband and I enjoy listening to it on long trips. For me, I went through the hard copy book multiple times from beginning to end, and I have flags on pages, many underscored. I am so inspired, great information to live a healthy life. I have purchased over time, six of these books for friends. Needless to say, I highly recommend this book!
