It never ceases to amaze me to see the increasingly growing prayer lines in churches for healing Sunday after Sunday.
It is without question that the power of God is real, and that miracles of healing do happen. In 3John 1:2 the Lord expresses to His people, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
So why is it that we find the same people returning for prayer time and time again for the same problem? Is it that they did not truly believe for healing the first, second, fifth or tenth time? Maybe prayer #11 will finally get that high blood pressure under control!
If you turn on your television, you’ll see the worldwide health epidemic that has doctors and health professionals concerned for the general health and quality of life of their patients, as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity onset illnesses rapidly increase, ravishing the homes, families, and communities of the people of God.
Many Christians expect to carry on certain destructive behaviors and for some reason believe that God will heal them. God is not mock; He works best when your faith is put into action.
Before you line up at the alter requesting prayer for that same knee problem, high blood pressure, diabetes, or whatever you are asking God to heal you from again, stop and ask yourself:
If you see where you can make adjustments based on the list above, do so first in combination with your faith, and watch God work on your behalf!
