Day 5 Thoughts that contribute to Autoimmune Diseases

Today we are going to look at thoughts and their impact on autoimmune functions.

God has designed the immune system so that when it is functioning normally, it correctly identifies viruses and bacteria that would harm the body and eliminates them. But what causes the body to incorrectly identify normal healthy functioning cells and begin to attack them? What causes the cells that are supposed to protect the body to attack the body?

We need to check our thoughts about ourselves to see if they are playing a part. If there are thoughts of guilt and shame about who we are, if there are feelings of self-hatred for any reason, we need to know those are not from God and can play a part in an incorrect immune response. If we attack ourselves mentally, it can contribute to our body attacking itself physically. To resolve this, we must accept how completely God loves us and we must obey Jesus’ command that we love ourselves. Matthew 22:39. We are God’s creation, and we must love, nurture and care for God creation.

We must also accept that we have a spiritual enemy who will continually feed us negative thoughts about ourselves. These thoughts must be rejected and replaced with God’s Word.

Here is a sample prayer. “Dear Father, please forgive me for not accepting your love for me and not loving myself. I tear down the strongholds of Satan against my mind, and I surrender my mind to You, blessed Holy Spirit. I affirm, Dear Father, that You made me, and I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I love what you have made me. In the name of Jesus, I rebuke every thought of guilt, shame, and self-hatred. In the name of Jesus, I command my immune system to immediately stop attacking normal functioning cells. Thank you, dear Father, for being my helper. I love you and I love me.”
