Ask Jesus – Early & Often

When you have an emotional or physical pain, ask Jesus to fill you with more of Holy Spirit.

Ask Jesus to heal that…very specific pain.

With Jesus, and having Holy Spirit in you and on you – because you asked for this and received by faith – speak to your mountain. Speak to the pain by name. Tell it what to do.

You can be calm, quiet and firm. You just mean what you say – you are being sincere.

Sincerity not only helps, prayer without sincerity, and speaking to things without sincerity — is too often an exercise in multiplying frustration.

Speak to your pain. Breathe. Be ready when you do this!

I find that when I feel my pain without attachment (by already having asked for and receiving by faith – more of Holy Spirit), when I breathe deeply, and ask for Jesus and his help — by the time I ask for Jesus, I am more ready to do this with sincerity. With good connection. That’s:

  • Feel the pain without attachment by having already asked for, and receiving by faith, more of Holy Spirit.
  • Breathe deeply – which in this context may actually help you experience more of Holy Spirit. The breathe of God.
  • Ask for and connect with Jesus. Call on the name of Jesus. Ask Jesus for help, being specific, clear, sincere – and ready to receive.

Do these things and you may find yourself like me, more ready to receive blessings and healing and freedom from pain.

And if you have an inkling to add something or do this in a different way, this could be from Holy Spirit. Always do what Holy Spirit says for best results. Always.

Ask for Jesus. Ask early. Ask often. It’s never too late. Be sincere. Be ready – no need to rush. And when you are ready, you can receive blessings that Jesus has given – more easily and better and more often.

Ask Jesus, ask early and often. Be sincerely ready, and receive with joy — and give thanks! It’ll improve your disposition; doing this is really good for you.

Oh – and do not deny this to others. Help them go through this, too. You can lead them. With Holy Spirit. And be glad you did. And rejoice!

When You Can’t Move or Lessen the Pain

There are times that you have pain and you cannot manage or lessen it on your own.

This may be because you are a Highly Sensitive Person, an empath, or a discerner – someone with a gift of discernment.

Normally, if you have pain that is physical or emotional, you can manage it or lessen it, at least some. That’s when the emotional or physical pain is yours.

When it’s not yours, you cannot touch it, manage it, or lessen it. You cannot “handle” it on your own.

What do you do that can help? So far I’ve found four things:

  • Pray for the person to whom it really belongs. Intercede. Can’t hurt, usually helps. It’s impossible for you to identify with the pain when you are interceding for someone else.
  • Sometimes it’s from an unclean spirit – it’s not yours. Resist evil, even as you draw closer to God. (See James 1.) Tell it that it has to leave and stay away; Jesus has given you authority. Don’t be bluffed or tricked into keeping it.
  • Worship! Which you can combine, of course, and do with either of the above. When you give praise for what God has done and especially when you worship God for who he is — everything just gets better.
  • Ask Holy Spirit to adjust your feelings, energy, body and relationships.

I do not know why I had to be told about this last one, and did not realize it myself. Thank heavens I have good mentors! For more about this, see the post I learned this from, at:

Bad News: We Live in a Broken World

We find ourselves in a world full of difficulties and troubles.

Relationship troubles such as failing marriages, families that cause suffering, individuals, groups and even races who not only do not get along, but who trigger suffering and pain.

Health difficulties. Sickness, disease, pain – physical and emotional.

Money troubles. Financial cycles that cause damage and hurt. Poverty. Lack of sufficient decent resources.

I could go on and on…but you know what I mean.

This is the world we are born into: the conflict is already here. It is not your personal fault or mine.

This is the context for the Good News of the Kingdom of God where restoration to the way things are in heaven are established on earth.

The Good News of the Kingdom of God that Jesus preaches.

Deal with Physical or Emotional Pain, Powerfully.

Surprise! Our Lord has already provided for you. For me. For everyone you know and love and care about. For everyone else, too.

So let’s receive and accept the Provision already given to us.

You can feel the pain. You pretty much cannot help but feel it. So…choose to allow yourself to feel it. (You are going to feel it anyway.) Just being aware of the emotional or the physical pain — or even both kinds of pain!

Allow yourself to not be attached to the pain that you feel. You can feel it yet not identify with itNOT as if to say to yourself inwardly, “I am this pain”. But rather, “I am aware of this passing pain.” Because….

All pain passes. New pain may come, but all pain passes. Acute pain may be terrible but usually does not last long. Chronic pain is usually not as strong as acute pain, but it goes on for a while – usually too long. It passes. All pain passes, and pain has a process.

Yes, pain has a process that too few of us know about and even fewer of us remember to use often enough. (I am beginning to learn to use this, and I thank God for this!)

I wake in pain nearly every morning. I am learning: breathe deeply. Feel the pain and let it be what it is, just feel it – it is in process. Feel it without identifying with it. It is there, it is all too definite. I am not that pain.

After I feel the pain for a while – which was going to happen anyway, it eases off. It disappears. It has gone through it’s own process.

But how do we not identify with the pain and keep some distance? How do we really have awareness of pain without it filling us up so much that we are literally full of pain?

One of the best ways is to invite Holy Spirit. “Lord, fill me with more of your Holy Spirit”, you can ask. Use words and labels that are evocative for you. Pain is very, very personal. So you get to be personal.

The Kingdom of God is literally within reach. Now. God’s rule instead of the rule of an Adversary in a broken world where there are to many kinds of pain and problems. Reach out, ask, call on the name of the Lord. Really, yes, really do this. With deep and focused intention.

He has promised he will come and save you when you call on him. Many times he has made such a promise. (Use your search engine to find many such promises, if you like. You can make note of them, write them down, underline them, highlight them – whatever is helpful and good for you.)

When you are aware of even a little bit of Holy Spirit, when you are aware of even a little bit of the Presence of God, or of Immanuel – a name of Jesus meaning, “God is with us” – and nearby if not even in you already – use such a name; or Yahweh, if you like. Or the short form, Yah! Of Yeshua. Or simply Jesus. Or “I Am”. Whatever name of the Lord you relate best to, in this moment.

When you have such awareness, your emotional of physical pain is in process, you are not completely identified with it, it is not all that is filling your conscious awareness.

The pain is processing. You are breathing deeply in an ongoing way. The pain eases off and gradually disappears.

Do this often enough and you will come to trust this process, this provision that God has given us already – you will come to trust this process even more. Which will make willingly going through this process more inviting and certain to you.

You may become aware of another pain. Pain is often in layers, like an onion.

Reiterate the process. Repeat it with every kind of physical and emotional pain that arises into your awareness. Preferably one at a time.

God has created a process for pain. Promised to be with you, in you, for you – and to respond when the name of the Lord is called.

So put these to work.

The process I have described here with many words is actually quite simple once you are doing it.

Do it.

Don’t just read about this, please do it.

And I’d love to hear from you, about how this went well for you or not. I can learn with you, maybe even say something useful. Or you say something useful for me. Or better yet, even both!

I’m Email me, I’d love to hear from you.
