So guys, first, you must not judge yourself based on what on is happening on the outside. That said, you must also not neglect what is going on on the outside because the outside is the reflection of who you really are or who you have chosen to be on the inside right now. If someone on the outside hurts you, that someone is not the problem. That someone is a reflection of what is happening to you or who you have chosen yourself to be on the inside right now.
The same rule applies to sicknesses.
All forms of sicknesses are a reflection of who you are on the inside. If sicknesses are as a result of anything outside (food, water, environment etc), like your doctors and media would have you believe, then 99% of everyone in Africa should be dead … very long ago. Yet, this is not the case, People are dying in Africa just as much as people are dying in Europe. I don’t know or have all the answers, especially when it comes to what type of sicknesses means but I know through one of Kenneth Hagin’s book that all forms of heart problems/issues is due to unforgiveness, not letting go of pain others caused you, keeping excessive amount of grudges. I also know that headaches are caused by excessive worrying or unrest of your mind etc. In a way, sicknesses are not bad. There are simply pointers to show that you can do or be better in that aspect. The water that I must not drink because it will make me sick is the same water my friends drink and they are just alright. It isn’t immune system. It is believe system. Finally, all answers you might need concerning this is within you. Just consult your higher self or the Holy Spirit within you.
So my friend, grow everyday, be a better version of yourself everyday by using what’s on the outside to understand what’s on your inside.
For I tell you this, there is nobody else in the world but you. Everyone and everything is a reflection (shadow) of who you have chosen to be. This “everything” includes your own physical flesh that you can see. Everything you do, every relationship you have, everywhere you go … is a reflection of who you have chosen to be. If you change who you are on the inside, the outside will reflect it.
