Have you never noticed that it seems easier to pray for others than for yourself? Why is that? Perhaps because when praying for others, you don’t have to stay around observing the symptoms.
But when you pray for yourself, if you don’t see immediate results, you’re left facing the symptoms and it can affect your faith. This is not the time to waver because you’ll negate your faith and get no desired results.
James 1:6-8 (KJV) 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
Hebrews 10:23 (KJV) 23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
Wavering is unbelief and unbelief will negate your faith – cancel it out! You can’t stand in faith and keep looking at the symptoms wondering when your healing will manifest. You have to dig your heels in and stand firm, believing that the prayer of faith is working and that you will recover.
Mark 16:18b (KJV) 18 … they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Galatians 6:9 (KJV) 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
We don’t have to beg and cry and carry on hoping that God will have pity on us and move on our behalf. God doesn’t have to move because He’s not stuck! He moved 2000 years ago when Jesus went to the Cross and paid the price for our sins and sickness.
1 Peter 2:24 (KJV) 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Unfortunately there has been so much wrong teaching concerning divine healing and most of it came from the church!
If the devil can keep us in a passive state of non-resistance, wavering, and unbelief, then we’re not going to get our healing. We have to actively stand against his wiles and stand on God’s Word and get the manifestation of our healing!
1 Peter 5:8-9 (KJV) 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
Matthew 11:12 (KJV) 12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
