Today I’d like to write about the subject of healing, after all, this is a healing ministry.  So many people are needing healing, and some have been waiting for years without receiving it. And a lot of the reason people fail to receive is because well-meaning folks tell them, “Well, you know it’s not always God’s will to heal, so don’t get your hopes up too high.”  Did you know that runs absolutely contrary to the written Word of God?

It is written is Psalm 103:2-5:

Bless the Lord, O my soul: And all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; So that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Now tell me, does that give you hope?  It surely does me.  Here the Word of God tells us that there are benefits for blessing the name of the LORD, not only salvation, but healing for our physical bodies as well.  Some say, “That’s only spiritual healing.”  Well, if that’s the case, then why did the Lord Jesus heal all the sick and diseased who were brought to Him or came to Him?  Why did He cast out the tormenting devils out of those who were infested with them if healing was only intended to be spiritual?

Jesus never did anything that wasn’t His Father’s will, and He even said, “I and My Father are One.”  That means two things: If it were not God’s will to always heal, and Jesus went about healing all the sick who came to Him, He would have been in violation of His Father’s will.  And secondly, if He would have only healed certain ones, then we could reasonably conclude that God does not always heal every time.  But no, He healed them ALL.  How many does “ALL” include?  Does it include YOU?

Well, if you are in need of healing, then “all” DOES include you.  But you say many have prayed for your healing for a long time and nothing has happened, so that bears out the belief that God does not always heal.  Or does it?  You know, I can offer you something, but unless you reach out and take it, you will never have it, even though it is MY will to give it to you.  You see, YOUR will plays a part in receiving.  No matter how willing the giver is to give, there must also be a receiver.  Without a receiver, nothing is transferred.

Let me put it like this, perhaps you’re sitting at a stop light in traffic and you hear your favorite song on the radio in the car next to you.  So you ask the other driver what station they are listening to, and they tell you.  And then you tune your radio to that frequency, and you can now listen to the song.  OR, you can tune your radio to another frequency of your choice and miss it, and then be all upset because that station wasn’t playing the song you wanted to hear.

Many miss out on their healing because they are not tuned into the Word of God.  They are listening instead to what other people tell them of how they prayed and prayed for years and never received their healing.  And that’s absolutely accurate!  Friends, you can be at the airport when your ship comes in and miss your blessing!  Look, if you want to catch fish, you must go to where the fish are.  You cannot sit at home in your recliner and expect the fish to come to you, because they won’t do it.  You must apply that same knowledge to healing: if you want healing for your body, you must go where the healing is.  Where is healing?  In the Word of God.  You won’t find it at the store, you won’t find it out in your yard, and it isn’t hidden somewhere in another country.  Actually, it’s right under your nose.  Here, let me explain something.  There were things hidden from mankind from the very creation, then one day the Lord Jesus revealed the biggest secret since creation, which is written down for us in Mark 11:22-24:

And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

If you’re like most people, that just went right over your head.  Here God is trying to give you something, but unless you receive it, nothing will take place.  Notice that word SAY.  If you shall “SAY” to the mountain, not gripe about, not think about, not look and say “How high it is!”, but shall SAY unto it, “Be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea.”  Now HERE is the qualifier:  “and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall BELIEVE that those things which he SAYS shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he SAYS.  Ok, how many of you believe that?  How many of you absolutely KNOW if they speak to that mountain and command it to be moved, that it will obey you?  C’mon now, be honest!  You know that mountain isn’t going anywhere.  Why?  Because in your heart you simply know it isn’t going to happen, so you’re not even going to command it to move, because you already don’t believe your own words.  So how do you expect to be able to command sickness out of your own body?  Well, until you change what you believe, and what you say, that mountain of sickness is staying planted right where it is.

Jesus went on to say, Therefore I say unto you, What things soever you desire, when you pray, BELIEVE THAT YOU RECEIVE THEM, AND YOU SHALL HAVE THEM.
I want you to notice something here you may have overlooked.  Jesus said WHATSOEVER you desire, He didn’t limit what you could have. But you limit yourself with your unbelief.  I said, you limit YOURSELF with your unbelief.  God isn’t doing it, the devil can’t do it, only YOU can.  So that means you can stop blaming God right now for you not receiving your healing.  If you change what you believe, you will change what you say, and if what you say lines up with the Word of God, the devil himself cannot stop you from having it, and God certainly won’t, He is the One who is telling you that you can have it.

I listen to what sick people say, and I only have to be around them a few minutes to be able to accurately predict if they will get well or stay sick.  Those who say, MY CANCER, have already claimed ownership of it.  They believe it’s theirs, and you’re not going to talk them out of it.  Even God himself cannot help those who lay claim to sin and sickness and disease.  But most of them have been in church long enough to be taught that God wants you to have sickness to teach you a lesson, and they hold onto that lie right to their grave.

Fortunately for you and me, God made a way for us to be healed of every sickness and disease, and all we have to do is follow His instructions.  Sickness is not strong enough to defy God.  Sin is not strong enough to defy God.  But if WE defy God and not follow His instructions, we can be killed by it, and MANY are.

If you want to be healed, determine right now to put your thoughts and belief and words into alignment with the Word of God.  Stop listening to the lies of the devil and the lies of the uninformed people who parrot doubt and unbelief.  You CAN be well and live out your life in perfect health.  I know, because I’ve done it since 1993 and used the Word of God to drive cancer out of my own body, and have stayed well all these years since.  It isn’t hard if you’re willing to change what you believe.  But like I said earlier, you have a choice.  You can stay sick, or you can get well and enjoy your life.  Salvation and healing is a free gift from God, and it’s available to ALL who will receive it.  But YOU are the only one who decides whether to receive or not.  God already made HIS choice, He GAVE it to you.

Without getting your hopes up, there is no chance you will go any farther toward your goal to receive.  An athlete will not work out and train hard for a race unless he has hope to win.  That hope becomes belief.  That belief causes him to think and talk about his upcoming victory.  Put him out there on the field, and he is undefeatable.  And it all started with getting his hopes up.  Now, what’s YOUR choice?  Are you going to get your hopes up?
