I agree that healing has been misunderstood but I KNOW what God has done for me. And I also know that if he can heel me, He can do it for any one. Several years ago I was getting sharp pains in my right hand knuckles, the swelling of joints, the cramping. I knew this arthritis would about end my carpentry work, so I was very determined to be free of it. And fortunately I had already exercised my faith in small things like overcoming the flue. And I had knowledge of how to have victory over the emotions and the devil and just remain firm in faith. It was not instant like we want it to be but took about 5 months. But what finally finished it off was when some guest preachers visited my church and carried an anointing for healing and I didn’t even know it until I drove off after service because I feel the pain when I shift into 3rd gear now it was totally gone.
So, if like me, your faith is not as firm as it could be, seek some one who has the anointing
But the most important thing is knowledge. The first and most important thing to know is that healing is always for everyone at all times. It is no different than salvation. Jesus paid a heavy price for your healing and he wants you to have it more than you want it for yourself. He does not teach people a lesson by denying healing.
However, there are things that will block faith. A big one is unforgivingness. Another may be a wounding in the soul. Another is having a “plan B”. By this, I mean that if we have in our mind that we will get the medical treatment if God doesn’t heal, then that makes us double minded and we cannot receive.
There is much more to know but all I want to say is that healing is always for you and that God is always good.
