What if we emptied out hospitals? What if there were simply no more deaf people in America, because the church was seeing 100% of people we prayed for healed? Thank God for hospitals and deaf ministries, but what if the tide of faith for supernatural healing just kept growing in the church? How can the tide of faith for healing grow in you? Here are my baseline recommendations . . .
- Give Jesus what He paid for. Jesus took infirmities and carried diseases, get close enough to Him and His thoughts to realize how true that is. He already paid the price, it’s done. When you grow in relationship with Him, you will come into more awareness of what He’s done, and alignment with the fact that He wants to do it again.
- Be opportunistic. Anyone you see or hear about who needs healing no matter how big or small, take a moment and pray with them. You may not be feeling especially spiritual that moment, or outgoing, or like you have the words, however, when you step out to give God opportunity to get glory He might just take it. Take risks, and those simple consistent steps will build your faith.
- Pray like Jesus. Command the sickness to move in Jesus name. Don’t command Jesus – that’s disrespectful. Don’t beg/ask Jesus – that assumes you have more compassion for the person than He does. Jesus commanded healing into people’s bodies, then he asked them to test it. Pray like Jesus.
- Rehearse what God did. If God has ever moved in you or someone around you supernaturally, remember it. Rehearse it in your mind often. Build a monument to what God has done in your heart. That rehearsal of testimony will be the dress rehearsal for your next miracles.
So go ahead – dare to believe God right now. Holy Spirit is in you and He wants out, not to leave, but to fill your world with His goodness.
