Is miraculous healing possible? Then why is it that so many sick are not healed even after prayers?
By God’s grace, our ministry has seen the cripple walk, deaf hear, eyes restored, tumours disappear, AIDS healed and many others. But with this article, I want to empower you to access the healing power of God by yourself!
Here are some facts about your healing:
It is in the will of God for you to be healed. God wants you to be in good health just as your soul prospers. 3 John 1:2 says, “Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.”
See Exodus 15:26 And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer.”
Psalm 103:2-5 says, “Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities; Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit; Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.”
Not just that, your healing and health is so important to the Lord that the Bible says, Jesus died on the cross for your healing as a price for you to be made completely whole! With every stripe on the body of Christ, you were made whole. On the cross Jesus was so disfigured, wounded from His head to toe, that you made be whole from your head to the toe!
Therefore today, there is no symptom, sickness, disease in your body that is too big for Jesus to heal!
The Problems We Often Face
1. Many Expect a Man of God to Bring Them Healing
Is it wrong? NOT AT ALL. However, don’t forget that God wants to heal you Himself. What a minister of God has access to, you have access too through the Word of God and the power of the Spirit.
2. Fear Greater Than Faith
The Bible says, without faith is impossible to please God. (Hebrews 11:6) So each time you let fear get into your way you are arresting yourself from accessing your miracle.
Now remember, don’t feel guilty for letting fear in, it’s natural to be afraid in the natural but remember whose child you are. Because you are the child of Jesus, because healing is your right, because you are more than a conqueror – fear has no place in you.
3. Renew Your Mind
It’s interesting how many people say they have faith to be healed but then end up confessing negative.
A renewed mind does not believe the lie of the enemy.
A renewed mind listens to the doctor’s report but only believes the Word of God.
A renewed mind knows the seriousness of their condition but also lives in peace and joy because they know their God.
A renewed mind does not let fear cripple them. They live in faith – causing them to tap into the healing every passing minute.
A renewed mind will not question God but will guard their heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit.
Is your mind renewed? If not, start reading the Bible like there is no tomorrow and ask the Holy Spirit to renew your mind to believe the mind of God today!
4. Don’t Ignore the Dark Side
Don’t forget the fact that there is also a spiritual side to the sickness. Just today as I was praying for someone, the Lord revealed how jealousy against that person was working like witchcraft, crippling this believer who was not fully walking with God.
Take time to practise the power of the Holy Spirit in your life. Don’t beg, plead – but command every powers of darkness to leave your life in the name of Jesus. Rebuke it like how you would rebuke a stray dog that has gotten into your house. Enemy knows it when a believer has recognised his/her authority in Christ.
5. Self Deliverance
Simply make it a point to pray this with total faith, “In the name of Jesus, I arrest every devil fighting me.” “I command every spirit of sickness, pain, disease to leave my body in Jesus name.” “My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit – I command all the powers of darkness to leave me and my family in Jesus name.”
You may or may not see anything concrete happening in the visible realm. That does not matter. It is the faith in the name of Jesus that heals you! And His name—by faith in His name—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all. (Acts 3:16 ESV) Just believe!
6. Confess Your Healing With Faith and Thankfulness
Look beyond your situation. Activate your faith. Do what you could not do before and thank the Lord for the healing. This will be the point where the enemy will fight you the most. Because he’ll want to fill your heart with doubt. But here’s where you’ll need to anchor yourself in God.
Soak yourself in prayer and the Word of God – so that the doubts of the enemy do not consume you. For any difference you see, begin to thank God for that difference. Continue to trust God every step of the way!
7. Testify God’s Goodness
This is the part where many forget. If the Lord healed you, whether it’s a headache or cancer – go give God the glory! Testify about it on Facebook, Twitter, email someone about it, blog about it, testify about it in your cell group or call someone and tell them what Jesus did for you.
Before you know, the Lord will begin to use you for the healing of others! Oh, yes you read that right!
Jesus never said, the evangelists shall heal the sick. Jesus said, And these signs will accompany those who believe: in My name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (Mark 16:17, 18 ESV)
Well that could be you my friend! If you believe that – go ahead and lay hands on yourself right now and begin to pray!!!
Can I pray for your healing through this post?
Simply believe that you will be healed now and lay hands on your sickness. Imagine me praying over you and read this prayer out loud in faith.
I lift my dear friend that needs healing to You. Because You died for their sins, sickness and salvation, we pray that You’d uplift their faith to see Your power. We ask You that You have mercy upon them as they read this and pray this in faith. Let Your mercy speak for them.
Now I command every powers of darkness that is causing these pain, sickness or disease to leave in the mighty of Jesus! I command every devil to leave this house and family in JESUS NAME!
Dear Holy Spirit, we release your healing power to take over this body right now. Be healed. Be free. Right now! In Jesus name I pray, AMEN.”
Don’t forget to send in your testimony! May the Lord use this blog for you and your family! Jesus loves you!
