I love praying and releasing physical healing. But to be honest, a lot of times the healing doesn’t seem to take place.
What do I make of it when this happens? Well, I think there are two responses that I can take. I can either…
a) resort to doubt and let the seeds of doubt cloud the goodness of God so that I won’t pray for healing next time
b) trust and believe in the goodness and power of God no matter what happens in front of me.
You see, option A is much easier-especially in naturalistic America. I find that option B is something I have to constantly fight and contend for. I have resolved that it is important for me to continue to walk in belief no matter what happens.
It’s important because it will affect the next time I pray for someone. If I keep settling for option A, I’ll eventually stop praying for the miraculous. If I fight for B, I’ll eventually see the miracle and power of God.
And so I’m glad to say that I do really try hard to fight for option B. This allows me to see healing more and more often. Out of ten people I pray for, maybe I’ll healing in two of them. Those eight times are often discouraging, embarrassing, etc, but out of ten times, I saw the power and the miracle of God two times–totally worth it!
