Sickness and disease has become an accepted part of life and is "normal"! I dispute this, and in fact rebuke this line of thought. As my health was declining and the doctors started mentioning Lou Gherig's disease (ALS), against my wife's advice and wishes, I jumped online and started reading about this disease. I joined an online community where there were others afflicted with this. I am not speaking against communities like this,this overall was a good experience I met many people full of faith, that spiritually helped me! But as my knowledge about the disease grew, I began to predict what was going to happen next. Through my words I was accepting the disease. Unknowingly, I was accepting it. So innocently, I was double-minded, I was seeking healing, believed in healing, had faith for healing, but at the same time speaking death! A double-minded man shall recieve nothing! In contrast, today if something starts to happen health-wise I condemn it, speak against it and turn to Jesus. My focus today isn't on any symptom it's on Jesus. I command it to go away and as a follower of Jesus, I know it has to. It isn't fake it till you make it, it is a deep trust In Jesus and His Finished work that I know it doesn't stand a chance. Same thing when I pray for a sick person, I know that when I command a disease away, it has to go. If it doesn't then I don't blame God, I look to Him for a revelation as to why that person wasn't healed. I do not blame the sick person, or myself......I seek the answer! I will however ensure that the person does have the correct information on God's view on Healing. We simply have to develop a lifestyle that is Holy Spirit reliant. I rely and trust In Him. Back to accepting disease, we are surrounded by a world, that is focused on medicine and tests to detect sickness. Commercials that say have this test, have that test. We do these things out of Fear, Perfect Love casts out all fear. His Perfect Love for us, not our perfect love (cause our love isn't perfect) for Him! There is no second hand healing whether it is a miracle healing or a healing from a doctor it is from God. Take your medicine, have the needed tests, but Look to Jesus first and then secondarily do as the doctors recommend. Example, a woman was diagnosed with lymphonic cancer, I prayed over her on numerous occasions, surgery was scheduled, the day before the surgery she called me and I prayed for her again. The swelling went away she said I'm healed praise Jesus! She went through with the surgery, the surgeon found a perfectly healthy cancer free lymphnoid. Praise the Lord! They were confounded all tests had showed (including a biospy) cancer. I guarantee that her circumstance planted a seed in the doctors heart and either encouraged them in their faith or will change their heart so that they become true followers of Jesus! Speak health (life), not sickness and death. Seek His Presence and Recognize Him!
