Did you know that we can live a lifestyle of consecration that brings physical, emotional, and mental healing and intimacy with God? We have been looking into inner healing and deliverance this past month. So I want to share with you a book that Monica Venable wrote called “Consecration And Intimacy With Our Lord,” which describes a process of spending time with the Lord and praying over yourself, receiving healing for your soul.
According to Merriam – Webster.com dictionary, to consecrate means dedicated to a sacred purpose. In other words, to sanctify or be set apart to a holy purpose or religious use, to free from sin or purify. The Lord wants us to be whole and to prosper!
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. 3 John 2
This manual describes a process of spending time with the Lord and consecrating oneself to cleanse the soul of sin and wounds that have occurred in our lives (childhood, present, generational) and are hindering our relationship with the Lord. Consecration begins with spending time with our Heavenly Father, bringing restoration to these things, and strengthening us as we go through life. We are priests unto God (Romans 12:1-2; Revelation 1:6), and we need to cleanse our temple, our bodies first (1 Corinthians 6:19).
We need to partner with the Holy Spirit to allow Him to lead and empower us through this process. Have a pen and notebook ready to write down what the Holy Spirit is revealing to you. The author describes the process of anointing certain body parts which are symbolic with oil, i.e., mind, brain, eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hands, heart, soul (mind, will, and emotions), and feet, praying and declaring Scriptures over these body parts, putting on the armor of God (Ephesians 6:12-18), and concluding by taking Holy Communion. https://alexiscarucci.com/…/holy-communion-abundant…/
The oil is symbolic of the Holy Spirit (the presence of God), and the Word of God we are praying over ourselves brings healing and restoration (Isaiah 10:27, Exodus 29:7, James 5:14, Mark 6:13, Hebrews 4:12). As we spend time with the Lord, He brings healing and wholeness to our hearts.
Becoming spiritually free and whole begins with asking the Lord to forgive and cleanse us from all sin (1 John 1:9). We may also need to forgive others, God, and ourselves. We apply the blood of Jesus and the power of His resurrection to bring healing to our souls (See https://youtu.be/4KNzUYZrSBk; https://alexiscarucci.com/…/05/12/the-power-of-forgiveness/; https://alexiscarucci.com/…/the-power-of-the-blood-of…/; https://alexiscarucci.com/…/the-power-of-his-resurrection/
Please watch the video interview below with my friend Deahna Davis, who teaches on this process, referencing the manual and how consecration changed her life.

As we become cleansed and whole, we can share the healing and delivering power of Christ with others!
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9
