Whew! I had a very interesting day yesterday. A friend asked me to come to her mother’s house and allow God to use me as a vessel for her deliverance and healing. She was so excited that she shared the work we were doing to do with three of her friends who minister to others regularly.
It should have been an instant healing. When The Holy Spirit shows up and moves in the fullness of His power, healing is instantaneous. Limbs grow back immediately. Eyeballs appear where there was not any. Cancer dies immediately. All sickness, pain and disease leave.
Yet, when we left the healing was occuring, but still in process. God showed me a vision of angels surrounding her bedside that night to complete the work we had called forth.
In my quiet time this morning, I was baffled as to why Jesus and His angels did not complete the work while we were there. He shared with me that the lack of knowledge created an unbelief in those who were present. My friend’s mother was in total faith and belief. It was the team whose knowledge and belief were lacking. He used it to teach me a great lesson in terms of getting people properly trained.
When we were “done” one of the ladies who joined us said, “Now she needs physical therapy. God takes care of the spiritual but you still need physical therapy for the body.” No. Not so.
When all unbelief is absent, The Holy Spirit does a complete healing and leaves returns all body functions back to His functioning. It is because of our unbelief that deliverance or healings take longer or are over time.
When we operate in the presence of Jesus, the same healing power that He used to heal every person is called upon and He can do the same thing through us.
Take inventory of your unbelief. When you get a headache, do you go for the aspirin or to Jesus first. When something goes amiss in your body, do you go to Jesus for healing first or call the doctor or naturopath? When a relationship acts up, do you go to Jesus to heal and guide you or do you go to the person and respond before you have heard from God?
Do you put more faith in the physical therapy than Jesus’s power to completely heal?
It is not Satan that is killing us (he does not have this power), it is our unbelief and lack of understanding that is taking believers out.
Check out where your belief ends and your unbelief begins. Can you believe God for a financial blessing but not a physical healing? Do you believe Him for $50 but not 50 million? Do you believe God to heal your headache, but not cancer?
It’s time to take an unbelief inventory and see how you fair.
Be blessed and be in belief so God can show up and do the miraculous in your life.
