Spiritual pain is not often talked about but needs to be addressed by each and every person seeking wholeness.
Within the word of God we see three types of healing
- Physical healing – concerns the external body and all physical ailments
- Emotional healing – concerns all mental health issues that affect our will, our emotions, our reasoning, and intellect.
- Spiritual healing – concerns all illness affecting our communication with God, out emotions of the spirit, our conscience and our intuition.
Spiritual illnesses will affect our ability to communicate with God, with others. it affects our ability to hear from God, to be convicted of sin, to know what sin is… our justification and sanctification, it also affects our intuition and ability to see and discern not just good and evil but also demons, devils and angels, and to discern others motivation and intentions which can lead to all sorts of problems and dangerous not just spiritually but even reaching into our emotional and physical wellbeing.
