Laughing in the face of Dire Circumstances

Yesterday’s blog focused on using your faith / the Law of Attraction to bring about healing in your body.  Today’s blog is about another tool that we have at our disposal when we are standing in belief for something.  That tool is laughter.

Psalm 2:4 (NAS) reads, “He who sits in the heavens laughs,…”  Why do you think that God laughs?  I believe that laughter is very powerful.  It holds in it the power to change our moods, lift our spirits, and cause good things to come into our lives.  You may be familiar with the saying, “Laughter is the best medicine.”  Perhaps you’ve even read some of the many stories of people being healed through laughter.  One of the best known of these is Anatomy of an Illness as Perceived by the Patient by Dr. Norman Cousins.  But why does God laugh?

Let me illustrate why I believe He laughs.  Let’s say that you’re an attorney and you own your own law firm.  One day, while you’re working in your office, a young man from the mail room is delivering mail.  When he arrives to your office to deliver your mail, he suddenly turns to you and says, “Before today is over, you are going to be fired.”

What would your response be?  Would you rebuke the young man and tell him to leave your office or would you laugh at the absurdity of his statement, knowing that as the owner of your firm, there is no one above you who holds the power to fire you?  I assert that your response would be the later of the two.

Just as God in Heaven knows his place as creator of the Universe, if you know your place, your position, and your authority, you can laugh all of the time.  You declare how your body will function and whether or not your body functions in wholeness and health or if it will be riddled with disease and dysfunction.  We declare by faith.  We fight because of fear.

If your faith has you at cause in your life rather than being at the effect of circumstances, you, too, can laugh.  If you are using the Law of Attraction to bring healing into your body, you can laugh because the outcome has already been decided.  It was decided as soon as you asked for your healing.  Now, you must simply stand in faith believing that you already received your healing.  Act as if you are healed.  See yourself doing the things that you couldn’t do when you were sick.  Feel the emotions of how it feels to be healed.  Give thanks with a grateful heart to God for healing your body.  And laugh in the knowing that you are above sickness and not beneath it.
