The Synergy of Healing

Ok! So synergy is the combined efforts of two or more things or people to produce more than they would have individually, but what does this have to do with healing?

Consequently, nothing in God’s creation was made to operate or work independent of itself.

If we take a quick review of the account of Creation the understanding carries the under tone of cause and effect, Suggesting that everything that was mentioned in the creation benefited or complemented something else.

It is no different with healing, healing requires combine efforts, and as we are about to go into this teaching on healing, we will look at healing from an unusual perspective, with a view to identify some of these combined efforts.

In most cases of healing, we see the laying on of hands, one being anointed with olive oil, the joining of hands, prayer of agreement and the list goes on which are all correct, but what about confessing my faults to receive healing????

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another that you may be healed (James 5:16)…… wow! Are you saying that my healing or lack thereof can be due to me not admitting my wrong? Yes! This is exactly what I’m saying.

To confess implies one admitting, declaring or acknowledging something. Fault on the other hand advocate a defect, imperfection or being responsible for failure or wrong doing. Finally, to heal is to restore, make whole, to complete or to bring to an end or conclusion.

So, in this scenario we can achieve healing by acknowledging or admitting our defects, imperfection, or just being responsible for our failures or wrong doings to each other, combined with praying for one another.

These combine efforts or synergy will produce more for the individual in healing whatever area of their lives are affected, than any one of the single ingredients would have done alone.

Confession + imperfection + to one another + pray for each other = HEALING
