Broken Spirits And Illness

Mental illness often begins begins with a wounded or broken spirit. Depressed and discouraged people do not stay healthy mentally or physically.

It is important to protect your heart and your spirit. Once your spirit has become wrapped or broken, your emotional well-being will start to decline. Our souls can be whole or they can be fractured. It can be broken into multiple pieces this is where I believe Satan can come in the wreak havoc on us.

The Bible says there’s a spirit award departed Saul and that he was tormented by an evil spirit. If theirs anyone we should look at we should look at Saul to define the difference between mental illness and broken spirits.

When it’s a malevolent entity influencing someone, the goal is to push them off the deep end. The difference with mental health is that it often feels like anguish and that doesn’t lead to a place of destruction.

Many people are physically Sick today because they have problems in the emotional realm. Sickness often begins because of a broken spirit. Depressed and discouraged people do not stay healthy for long. I wounded heart is the life of the flesh.

How many times have we gotten things out of order. We say, “well if we get healed everything else will be all right.“Could it be that the physical affliction is simply a symptom of a mental problem that has not been dealt with.

If you look at rest when example high stress least you high rate of sickness. Such things as good as a divorce, death of a loved one, or losing a job I’ll have emotionally explosives situations. These are said to bring on a high risk of sickness.

Proverbs 18:24 says, “ The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?” When our spirit is strong it will sustain many physical wounds, we all know people who because of their illness should have been dead, but because of their strong spirit, they lived.

When a person spirit is broken or wounded, they can’t handle anything else. Even the most insignificant problem seems overwhelming. You can be physically weak, but if your spirit is strong, eventually your body will get well. But if your spirit is broken, and hopeless, hurt, Disappointed, and rejection take over, you can be destroyed not only emotionally, but physically.

A cheerful heart makes good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones

Proverbs 17:22

When our spirit is broken, it’s infect our physical body in many ways Mini emotionally ill people are being treated with drugs because your brain chemicals are out of balance.

Medical science takes the view that meditation of paranoia and schizophrenia are a result of chemical imbalance. I believe that is possible but I also question if you emotional state of some people are actually created in the chemical imbalance.

When our spirit is broken or wounded, the chemicals in our body will be affected and will change. Our heart will be faster, or a blood pressure may go up, among other changes. In order to stay well our spirits must prosper and be healthy.

If someone’s spirit is broken over and over eventually it will take a toll and not only our emotional well-being but our physical well-being.

The walls of our souls must be built up with no holes so that our spirit is continually protected. It wasn’t until I healed my spirit that my emotions and my physical health began to improve.

It wasn’t until I began renewing my spirit and spending time with God in prayer and having fellowship with other believers and I began healing both emotionally and physically.

I don’t think it was a coincidence that I just started getting better when I started my walk with God.
