Why You Can Believe God for Your Supernatural Healing

by | Apr 6, 2018 | Women

How often have I heard people say God spoke to them and told them something that was contrary to His Word? I ask you, “Will God speak against His Word?” No, He won’t. Why not?

“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He spoken, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (Num. 23:19).

According to this verse, He’s not human, that He should lie or change His mind. If God says (and He did), “By His stripes we are healed,” then we are. He made good on His healing promise at the whipping post, and purchased our healing for us with His all-powerful blood.

“Surely He has borne our griefs 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).

Then why has your healing not manifested in your mortal body yet? Or why did it not manifest in your loved one? Tough questions, I agree. But Jesus made it very clear to us over and over again throughout His Word that we are responsible to manifest our own healing. He said in Mark 16:17-18, “These signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Another famous Scripture found in Mark 11:23 concerning faith, “For truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says.” Just a little bit of faith, when activated in the right thing, will cause that mountain in your life to obey your command.

God’s Word does not change according to feelings, or experiences—good or bad. God’s Word does not change, nor does God say things to us that contradict His Word. What He says is firm, and He is faithful to perform His Word. And in this case, He says our faith heals us and makes us whole.

Then He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer. Your faith has made you well. Go in peace” (Luke 8:48).

He’s given the responsibility to work our faith to the manifestation of our healing. So the issue is not God being unfaithful to His Word, but that we are unfaithful to believe what He says is true. This is why it is important that we read and study the Word until our level of faith matches its standard so it produces what God intends for it to produce.

Let’s pray.

Father God, We ask for Your forgiveness for our ignorance concerning Your promises to heal and make us whole in spirit, soul and in physical body. Forgive us for putting faith in our feelings and experiences rather than in Your Word. We have lowered You to the standard of that of a human who lies and changes his mind instead of accepting the spiritual responsibility to bring forth the manifestation of our healing by the working of our faith. Forgive us, and help us in the area of our unbelief, so that we can believe as we should.

In Jesus’ name, we pray, amen. {eoa}
