A Place Called Completely Whole
by Sharah LaGail Wyatt
One of the most beautiful words in the English language is the word wholeness. It is beautiful because when you’re walking in wholeness, your life is a beautiful life. Deep inside every one of us crave to be completely whole. God created us to be that way, complete and satisfied in every area of our lives.
One of the greatest keys to experiencing wholeness is the Peace of God. Peace is more than just experiencing outer circumstances of quietness and tranquility. Most of the time, life is just not that way. You can experience inner quietness and tranquility even when circumstances go awry. If you’re connected to the force of God’s peace, consequently, all will be well with you. This peace doesn’t just equip you and protect you in the midst of the circumstances and trials you’re encountering now, or will face in the future. It embodies the ability to heal, restore, and make you whole from any and everything you’ve experienced in the past.
The devil often tries to do things to make us feel sick at heart. One such instance is in Mark 5:25-34 where we see the account of the woman with the issue of blood. At this point, she was not only sick in body (with no hope of a cure), but was also depleted of all her finances, and was (no doubt) probably very sick at heart. Yet, in Mark 5:27 we read "When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched the hem of His garment."
No matter how hopeless a situation can look, we should never fail to do what this woman did. When she heard about Jesus, she ran to Him. In any situation, He should be the first we run to. He is the answer!
The rest of the story says that she was completely healed and restored. The part I want to focus on is Mark 5:34 where he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you whole. Go in peace…" Peace in Hebrew is translated, "Nothing missing, nothing broken, wholeness." So if you plug that definition into the above verse it then reads, "…Your faith has made you whole, now go in your wholeness."
When God spoke those words to me several years ago, it was like an explosion went off in my spirit. My whole perspective on life and the things I was dealing with changed drastically. That’s what the peace of God will do for any and every one who will take hold of it. When wholeness takes hold of your life, even if everything you’re believing for hasn’t manifested in the natural yet, that wholeness will produce in your heart and soul such a reality of absolute completeness that it will seem as if it’s already come to pass.
Every benefit of our covenant with God is for now. While there is a process for the fulfillment of every one of those benefits, the promises of God are always present tense. Actually, God’s words are promises to us, but they are prophecies to Him. Everything He says comes to pass because He believes what He says. Now we must believe what He says, and it is His peace and His love working in us that will connect us to the fulfillment of His Word in our life.
God doesn’t desire anything other than for you to be completely whole in every area of your life.
May God Himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, body—and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If He said it, He will do it.
(1 Thess. 5:23-24 MSG)
He wants to put you together. He wants to make you complete so that you can say as Psalms 55 declares, "My life is well and whole, secure in the middle of danger…" (Ps. 55:18 MSG)
A life of wholeness is a life of security, protection, peace of mind and heart, satisfaction, prosperity in spirit, soul, body, financially, relationally. God wants you whole!
Ever since the first time I read the book of Psalms in the Message translation years ago, one verse that stuck permanently in my spirit was Psalms 119:80, "And let me live whole and holy, soul and body, so I can always walk with my head held high."
To live whole and holy, soul and body…. Doesn’t that sound beautiful? What’s more, that’s not just a nice-sounding phrase. Those words are God-breathed, straight from His heart for us. The Word records that Jesus ever lives to make intercession for us. Well, what do you think He is interceding about? He is declaring His peace, His wholeness over us day and night without any let up!
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
And the peace of God, a peace so wonderful that it cannot be compared to any other type of peace. A peace that stands in a category itself and rises far above and goes beyond any thing the human mind could ever think, reason, imagine, or produce by itself, will stand at the entrance of your heart and mind, working like a guard to control, monitor and screen everything that tries to access your mind, heart, and emotions.
(Eph. 4:7 from Sparkling Gems by Rick Renner)
Let the peace of God dwell in you richly! Meditate on His peace, His wholeness until it becomes a full reality in your heart and in your life. Allow that peace to make you whole and holy, soul and body, by giving your attention entirely to it. You have believed the Word. You have stood on the Word. Now let peace do its work.
Your faith has made you whole. Now go in your wholeness. If you will let it, the peace of God which transcends all human understanding, will establish you in every good and desirable thing you could ever ask or dream of. Most of all, it will bring you to the place called completely whole.
