Why You Should Keep Running Toward Your Healing

by | Apr 13, 2018 | Woman

The winner of the race is not sitting down on the sidelines. This person is not hidden from view, asleep, or complaining because the race is so difficult, but actively running. And the people watching knows this person is running. This person is the leader of the pack and is being highlighted to show others how to run their race successfully, how to run through and past that finish line to victory.

Do you not know that all those who run in a race run, but one receives the prize? So run, that you may obtain it. Everyone who strives for the prize exercises self-control in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible one. So, therefore, I run, not with uncertainty. So I fight, not as one who beats the air. But I bring and keep my body under subjection, lest when preaching to others I myself should be disqualified (1 Cor. 9:24-27).

What is the victory you need? For many of you, it is physical healing. Then you need to learn how to activate your faith and run your race all the way through the finish line—the manifestation of that healing and beyond.

You need to stay focused on the goal and not be sidetracked by the voices of the doubters sitting on the sidelines, encouraging you to fail. Yes, in the Christian world, there are those who have aligned themselves with the team of Doubting Thomas. Don’t listen to them.

You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you. A little yeast leavens the whole batch. I have confidence in you through the Lord that you will not think otherwise. But he who is troubling you shall bear his judgment, whoever he is (Gal. 5:7-10).

There are also other evil spectators, demons, and they come in the form of lying spirits whispering lies of doubt, unbelief and failure. They will even dress themselves as angels of light and disguise their voices to tell you they are a messenger sent by God. They declare evil lies such as, “God sent me to tell you He is not going to heal you. Instead, He is going to take you home now.” This is a lie to stop you from completing your race, because you have all these spectators watching you to find out if what you’ve been saying, “According to Isaiah 53:5, I am already healed in the name of Jesus” is true. Why the lies? To destroy your witness, and those who have been supporting you, and many others too.

Surely he has borne our grief and carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and by his stripes we are healed (Isa. 53:4-5).

You be faithful and complete your race. And your race is not finished until the manifestation takes place, and then there is a time of rejoicing. But it doesn’t end there; you need to run past that finish line and start to testify of God’s glorious manifestation in your life and lead others to His glory as well.

Do all things without murmuring and disputing, that you may be blameless and harmless, sons of God, without fault, in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, in which you shine as lights in the world. Hold forth the word of life that I may rejoice on the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain (Phil. 2:14-16).

So the next time you start to feel discouraged in your race, stir up that gift of faith within you and remind yourself that this race is not just all about you, but you have many spectators—good and bad—who need your witness of a faithful God who loves them and not only is able to heal, but desires them to receive their healing by faith.

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, and I have kept the faith.” {eoa}
