I’ve been on a long path of seeking and believing God for my healing. While pregnant with my first child I gained 100 pounds. At the time, I had no idea what was happening. My OB gyne, that I just met for the pregnancy, kept telling me that I was eating too much. While my diet changed slightly during pregnancy, it definitely wasn’t enough to gain that much weight so quickly. After having the baby and returning to my primary care Dr., he took one look at me and asked “What happened”. Don’t get me wrong, I have never been stereo-typically skinny. I always had to work hard at staying within a certain weight range. Anyways, he tested my blood and I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. It has been an uphill battle since the year 2000. I have recently had 4 babies in a row and my symptoms increased. Last year I finally went to a specialist and found out that it is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis which is in the autoimmune category. My thyroid produces hormones but my immune system attacks them. I have currently been at a point of complete fatigue and exhaustion. I have to pray and push through everything!
I’ve been on several different types of meds. I have studied all different types of natural treatments. I have researched functional medicine. Through all of this, God has giving me instructions and wisdom. Through all of this I’m still believing God for complete healing by the full power of the cross.
What does this have to do with snails and leaches? Well, our fight is in the spirit. I believe all of these diseases look like something in the spirit. If we know what they look like, then we will also know how to pray and what we can do in the natural.
So snails are slow which explains the fatigue and slowed metabolism. They also feed off of waste (maybe processed stuff/sugar and also garbage that feeds our souls). Leaches suck blood/life out of you and they are hard to detach. Again exhaustion, depression, and trying to take away your life source. You have to burn them to make them detach. Come on fire of God! Two different people confirmed what God had been speaking to me. They said that I must start taking communion. I used to do this daily. I believe it was key in my deliverance, soul healing and growth. The Bible says take it as often as you want in remembrance of Jesus. It is His body that was broken so that we can be made whole and His blood that was shed so we can be cleansed, completely healed and forgiven. It’s the full power of the cross!
Now I know how to pray. I have to come against these snails and leaches. I also have to get rid of the sugar and processed foods that the snails feed on. I have to burn anything/distraction/false burden leach that is sucking my life source.
Faith without works is dead. I believe that as I do my part, God will completely heal me. Not because He can’t do it miraculously now, but because He gave me this revelation to obey. Sometimes we miss our miracle because we don’t follow instructions. Don’t believe me, read 2 Kings 5. God shows his mercy and gives us grace, but it is better to just obey!
For my friends with autoimmune challenges in their bodies, this strategy is for you as well. I pray that every snail be starved of every toxin that is feeding it naturally and spiritually. I call our immune systems to line up with God’s DNA and every mutated cell be removed and replaced with cells from the blood of Jesus. May every leach burn by the fire of God. Remove all things depleting our life and energy that belongs to You Lord. Continue to give us instructions and lead us to the truth of our healing. In Jesus’ name. Amen!
To those suffering from other things in your body and soul, there are answers for you too. Continue to press into God and ask Him what it looks like in the spirit. He will surely give wisdom to all that ask.
Be blessed on your journey to wholeness!
