Does God Want Me to Have Trich?
I’m going to explain my one word answer there in more detail because I think it’s something that needs to be talked about.
I see people who …
- think God gave them Trichotillomania
- don’t think God will heal them from Trich
Both are totally erroneous and I’m hoping to shed some light on the heart of God towards those battling Trichotillomania.
How Do I Know God Doesn’t Want You To Have Trich?
Jesus came to earth as a man, but He was fully God.
Jesus said that if you’ve seen Him, you’ve seen the One who sent Him.
He came to show the will of the Father. Jn 14:5-13
God’s character and will can fully be seen in Jesus.
He was always loving, healing and ministering to those in need.
Jesus spent a large portion of His ministry healing.
MOST of the miracles in the gospels recorded for us are healing miracles!
Jesus came to show the heart of God to humanity.
He was here healing the sick, cleansing the lepers, casting out demons and doing the will of God.
God’s will is for you to be completely whole in every area. 3 John 1:2
But similar to the paralytic who had to have his friends lower him down the roof of the house, you to are going to need to get yourself in front of Jesus.
That man could have said no, he could have refused to go, he could have chose to wallow in self pity and just stay where he was thinking God wanted him that way.
Sure, his friends took him, his friends lowered him down – but he consented to it.
Have you heard the story of the lost sheep?
Jesus left the 99 behind to go and find the 1 that was lost.
When He found the sheep, He took it up on His shoulders and carried it back to the rest of the flock and celebrated.
But what did the sheep do?…
Besides get lost, what did that sheep do?..
The sheep consented to Jesus carrying him back where he belonged.
How do we allow Jesus to heal us and to carry us on His shoulders?
With the Word.
Get in front of the Word.
Jesus is the Word.
When you’re reading the scriptures, you’re reading about Him.
Soak in His character and read about all the healing miracles He did in the gospels.
When you do that, you’re putting yourself in front of Jesus.
Jesus is the same today, yesterday and forever. Heb 13:8
Your Wrong Believing Keeps You From Receiving
I had a somewhat abusive childhood, and from that stemmed a lot of insecurities and wrong thoughts.
I had lots of wrong thoughts about God and I thought He was punishing me for the longest time.
Now that I’m in bible school, I realize what the Word actually says about God and His affections towards mankind.
God says I’m a masterpiece. Eph 2:10
God says I’m unconditionally loved. Rom 8:37-39
When I think on these things it builds my faith.
God Doesn’t Want Me to Have Trichotillomania!
God’s Word is God’s will and His Word says,
Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. 3 John 1:2
Above ALL things God wants you to prosper and be in health, even as your soul is prospering. ALL THINGS!
Trichotillomania isn’t from God, God doesn’t want you to have it and His answer to overcoming Trichotillomania is found in His Word.
By His stripes you were healed! 1 Pet 2:24
By the blows that He received on the cross, you’ve been made whole – but you have to receive it!
Healing works the same way your salvation worked, by grace through faith. Eph 2:8
God gave you the greatest gift ever, He gave you Jesus.
When you believed on Jesus you were positioned in Him and have access to all the riches of God’s grace.
Salvation is more than just your ticket to heaven, it’s your healing, prosperity and wholeness.
Salvation is a package deal and it’s received by faith in God’s awesome grace.
God by His grace has provided everything you will ever need for the totality of life and you receive it by faith.
You Have Faith Enough to Receive!
You have the faith to receive everything you need from God because God has placed faith inside of you. 1 Tim 1:14
You have the faith OF the Son of God. Gal 2:20 KJV
How do you use the faith that you’ve been given?
By hearing about Jesus.
So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ. – Rom 10:17
You don’t have to try to muster up the faith to receive your healing from Trich, you just need to keep hearing about what Jesus has done.
The Good News is about Christ and what He has done for you!
Just this year, I’ve had to make my own confession of faith against Trichotillomania, too.
I started speaking out what I believe in faith and day after day, I see progress in my life.
The way that I’m overcoming Trichotillomania is by faith in God’s grace and I encourage you to do the same.
It begins with the renewal of your mind to what God says about your situation! Rom 12:2
Trichotillomania isn’t God’s will for your life.
His will is in His Word.
His Word says He loves you and wishes you would be prosperous in all areas of your life – health, finances, well-being – the whole kit and kaboodle!
