God wants to deliver you from fear and lead you to health and wholeness in Him.
Fear is a significant spiritual root of many diseases. It is not just a feeling but a form of spiritual bondage that aims to take away your health and your peace. Yet health and peace are two blessings that God wants to give you. At Be in Health®, we provide real solutions from God’s Word to help you overcome fear and many other possible spiritual roots in your life that may be preventing you from walking in the wholeness and blessings that God intended for you.
Freedom from fear is a free gift that God wants to give to you
God wants to deliver you from fear, and it starts with taking a step of faith to trust Him and believe Him that He can and will help you do it. Overcoming fear is not just a mental exercise but a work of God in your heart to establish and strengthen your faith and trust in Him. It also requires removing the enemy’s stronghold in your life to the spiritual bondage of fear.
4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. 5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. 6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard [him], and saved him out of all his troubles. 7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. 8 O taste and see that the LORD [is] good: blessed [is] the man [that] trusteth in him. Psalm 34:4-8 KJV
There is hope for your journey to freedom from fear in Jesus Christ
You will find encouragement for your overcomers’ journey in Sarah’s testimony of how God delivered her from fear and healed her. The Lord met her in her lowest point, answered her prayers, and led her to a more excellent way in Him through the For My Life® Retreat. Now she is changed and walking in the wholeness of life that God designed for her.
Sarah’s journey of being delivered from fear and healing in God
Before I heard about Be in Health, I was pretty hopeless. A dear friend taught me that God still heals today, and I held onto that, but I kept going deeper and deeper into bondage to fear and sickness. My health struggles started in January 2014. I went to every kind of doctor, the ER, chiropractors, and all sorts of holistic doctors. After about a year of searching, I went to an allergist, and she told me that I was extremely chemically sensitive and foods were making me sick.
A life of bondage to fear
That is when the bondage and the fear really took root. I had symptoms of feeling heavy like there was an invisible weight on my limbs and back, I felt unstable, awful feelings of dread like I was going to die, weakness, puffy lips and tongue, rashes, bloating, and more. I spent so much money on mold tests for my house, air purifiers, supplements, and we even switched our stove from gas to electric. I also wore a respiratory mask in parts of my house and in some stores.
I took twenty different supplements three times a day. This added contention to our marriage because my husband didn’t think they were helping, and I thought I needed them to survive.
I remember waking up every morning and having so much anxiety and dread for the day. I was afraid of everything I ate and could only eat a few foods, which really tasted awful. I would go to bed praying that I’d feel better and wake up with no relief. It was scary; there was no hope, no one could help me, and I was told it was a life sentence.
The Lord heard my cry and answered my prayers
Then in my journey of looking for solutions for my food sensitivities, a holistic doctor told me about this place in Georgia where people were healed of what I had. I didn’t even know that other people like me were out there! That gave me so much hope.
I looked up Be in Health and purchased Dr. Henry Wright’s book about allergies and his book called A More Excellent Way. Then I watched testimony after testimony of people who were healed of what I had on the Be in Health YouTube channel. Within two weeks of reading the books, I went down to Georgia to attend the For My Life Retreat at Be in Health.
Facing fears for the joy that was set before me
To get down there, I had to face some of the scariest things for me; I flew in an airplane, rented a car, and stayed in a trailer at the campground all by myself. I went to the grocery store the first day to get my special food, and I told myself that I was done with that stuff after this week!
I started the week with a lot of fear. I had a fear of evil my whole life and was so afraid of evil spirits that I couldn’t even sit through the first teaching because they were talking about the enemy’s kingdom. Then once one of the teachers delivered me from fear of evil, I was able to sit in the room and listen with an open heart and mind.
The truth that set me free
I went in thinking that I knew everything – what else could I learn? Boy, was I wrong. I was blown away by the truth that was taught straight from the Word of God. After going through the teachings and ministry, learning about confession and repentance, and being delivered, I felt a change in my body physically and spiritually.
During the week, I could not wait to get to the fear teaching because it was bothering me so much. But I learned that it was like an onion; God had to help me peel the yuck off layer by layer to get to the true deliverance that He wanted me to have.
A significant spiritual breakthrough
Before attending the For My Life Retreat, I was so absorbed in the kingdom of self. It was all about me. I learned while being there that one of the main pillars that MCS/EI (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and Environmental Illness) stands on is self-pity. I was so sick for so long, and no one believed me, so I was constantly trying to prove to people that I was sick.
About halfway through the week, I was crying in the car after a negative phone interaction. I felt so alone. Suddenly I recognized the self-pity and commanded it to go, and those icky feelings stopped instantly! That was very eye-opening for me to realize that I had the authority to be an overcomer, and I was not powerless anymore.
A process of being delivered from fear and regaining my identity in Christ
I learned that I didn’t have to live in fear, that fear is a lie, and it didn’t own me. I was finally able to separate myself from it; I was not fear, I was not sin, I was not rejected, all of that stuff was separate from me. That was instrumental in helping me overcome.
By the end of the week, I felt like a new person. I was who God saw me and created me to be from the foundation of the world for the first time in my life. I was Sarah, truly, without the extra heaviness of fear. And for the first time in my life, I just loved people without even trying because of who He was in me.
Rejoicing in my healing and the freedom from fear
I started to apply the principles I learned at Be in Health immediately. I needed to eat at the Atlanta airport, so I decided that I wasn’t going to eat in fear anymore because I now knew that it was sin. I couldn’t do that to God after all that He’d just done in me and for me. So I bought a salad. It was just an ordinary salad, but it was a big deal to me. It had croutons (gluten), blue cheese (dairy and mold), tomatoes (nightshades), and who knows what chemicals were in the salad dressing. I had been dairy, egg, and chicken free for ten years and gluten and nightshade-free for four years.
I sat on a bench in the airport eating my salad, weeping with joy, jumping up and down in my seat, and laughing. The flight home was so turbulent, but I wasn’t afraid. I got off the plane and felt a bit of nausea, but it didn’t trigger any of the horrible dread that usually tormented me anytime I felt unwell. It was all so foreign; I didn’t know it was possible to feel so free!
Taking back everything that the enemy stole from me
After I got back home, it was a process of taking back the territory that the enemy stole from me; my foods and my home. I threw away thousands of dollars of supplements and put away my mask. I walked down the laundry detergent aisle of the grocery store, dancing and praising the Lord. I smelled candles and cried for joy. God even restored my hair which had been falling out. I had so much fun taking my life back and telling people about it.
When my family saw the change in me, they needed to know what happened. I shared everything that I’d learned with them, and they wanted it for themselves. My mom and mother-in-law went to Georgia themselves, then my dad went.
The separation teaching has helped tremendously in my marriage and with my children. I’m now a better wife and mother. I’m so excited that I get to teach my children this stuff and that they get to grow up as overcomers. They get to see victory at a young age. And they don’t have to fall into the same generational curses that I struggled with.
I am changed because God heard my cry and answered my prayers
I’ll never go back to the way I was. I am a completely different person than I used to be. I’ve continued to really lean into Father God’s love and study His Word and study the Be in Health principles. Because I want to know more and to be able to help others who are in bondage and don’t even know it. I want to be His hands and feet all day, every day.
I was trying so hard before to seek God and find my place and calling, but I was still seeking other modalities that drew me away from God. But He’s so faithful because, in the midst of all that junk, He still led me to Be in Health and set me free. I’m so amazed and grateful that He called me out and saved me. I used to read my Bible and not be able to understand it. After Be in Health, I could read the Bible and understand what I was reading, and I could worship wholeheartedly without being afraid of what people thought of me.
I want to be a vessel of honor for God’s Kingdom and His glory
God uses me now! He uses me at my local church on the prayer team. He even uses me in the marketplace to pray for others, minister to them, and share my testimony. Now He has someone who is ready to do His Word without fear and shame.
I want to say to anyone searching for hope and struggling with mental or physical health issues, with relationship breakdown, or even if you want to be closer to God: Just go to Be in Health! God will make a way and meet you there. If you want freedom, if you want knowledge, if you want friends for life, if you want deliverance, wholeness, health, a slice of Heaven on Earth, go to Be in Health! Don’t wait. Your life will never be the same.
