Hindrances to Healing

by | Jan 14, 2010 | Faith, Health & Healing, Spirit-Led Living, Spiritual Gifts

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. —Psalms 1:2?

While many people who are prayed with are not healed, we know that it is God’s will to heal because on the cross Jesus “took our infirmities and bore our diseases.”

We know unbelief stops God. Covenant breakers, and those who have drawn back and refused to walk in the light, may find that God withholds healing until these evils are corrected. Then there are those who, like Job, find their healing delayed. They are conscious that God’s hand is on them, and a great transforming work is going on in them, perfecting patience, endurance, and victory that glorifies God in the fire. In delay their faith may “wax strong,” their obedience be made full, and a triumphant testimony to healing soon be given them. God has many such witnesses.

There were many striking and wonderful miracles of healing, but there were other cases in which the healing was but partially realized. This does not disprove that a supernatural work was wrought in many at the time they were prayed for. When a soul comes to God for salvation and then goes back among his worldly associates, he is in great danger of losing his precious inheritance in Christ.

It is the same with healing. Even though there has been a mighty inflow of the resurrection life of Jesus, if the person is resting in his feelings for the validity of his healing, he goes under at the first breath of testing. Those who are not deeply grounded in the Word and are surrounded by worldly and unbelieving associates are in grave danger of backsliding from any experience they may have in God, whether salvation, healing, or the baptism.

Lord, help me to seek out godly people who
will strengthen my faith in You. Amen.
