...Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing. ~ Ezekiel. 47:12
Growing deeply... Healing Progressively... Maturing Splendidly...
Scripture often uses leaves as a symbol for healing, and I've found that even looking at the lushness of my favorite tree, the California Live Oak, has a restorative effect on me. Through every season, the tree is always green as new leaves continually replace the old. There is never a season of barrenness. Just as there is never a time when the oak is without its leaves, so there should never be a time when healing is not the norm for the Christian. As the ground waters feed the mighty oak, so streams of the Living Water feeds the Christian with healing.
Mighty Oak Ministries believes that healing of spirit, soul, and body are the birthright of the Christian. While healing can sometimes be miraculously instantaneous, it is more often a progressive sanctification that requires us to make difficult choices. This is particularly true of soul healing, where the mind, will, and emotions have been wounded by the bad things that happen in life, or even by the lack of good things. We focus on the renewing of the mind, taking every thought captive, for the tearing down of strongholds as we progressively grow into mighty oaks of righteousness, a planting for the display of the Lord's splendor.
