My Healing Experiences Introduction
I grew up with two diverse opionions about scriptural healing in my home. My father taught me about divine healing since a small child through the many miraculous healings he received as a child. But he also received healing as an older person through faith and prayer.
There are at least 7 types of healing in the Bible, however, this article centers on healing through faith and prayer. But before I continue, I’ll share my mother’s belief concerning divine healing. She was adamant that it doesn’t exist. I’m not critisizing her, but sorry that
she spent most of her life with sickness that the doctors couldn’t dianose. They kept telling her there was nothing wrong with her but she refunsed to believe them. She became angry with anyone who suggested faith and prayer.
For me, there was never a choice. I embraced divine healing, but with hesitation. I had a severe case of asthma since age 10 related to specific foods and environments. My mother worked hard to help me remain well as a child until I left home, even though I believed that God could heal me. My father and I didn’t talk out loud about healing or about God healing me as it would have caused much strife.
My father and I allowed my mother to manage my asthma rather than be rid of it spiritually. However, once I left home, I prayed for healing and have never had it since. How silly Christians can be when we put people over God. This makes no sense to me now, but it did then because I wasn’t mature in the Word of God. So this article covers the part of my life after I received healing of asthma in my early twenties. I’ll relay it in steps, so that it will give a simple clarity to the process I learned.
As an adult on my own, I rejected my family church because the leadership believed that some people are healed while others are not. Others believed that Biblical healing is “evil.” This goes against what the Bible says. God heals every believer who trusts His Word for healing by faith. This is how I approached whatever healing I needed, including cancer.
So, the first step for healing is to have a condusive environment to all Biblical truth. A church that follows the Bible’s truth is vital to our faith. A church that follows scriptural doctrine and not man-made doctrine. It’s also important to find believers who desire to live by the Word to encourage you if you don’t have supportive family members
While I believed the stories my father told me about his healings, and I witnessed his healings over the years, He didn’t teach me how to receive or how to have the faith he had. I didn’t know how to receive from God consistently, or how to have the faith he had. This is when I committed my life to learning how Christians can be sure they have received any promise of God, and help others besides myself.
I studied the Word about faith and wrote down what I learned in a journal. I recreated what I used as an Interactive journal. I give it away free on my community site. Click here to get it.
When it comes to trusting that God always answers our prayers when we ask in faith for something He has promised, we can believe Him always. I used the following verse to meditate on consistently.
Isaiah 55:11, King James Version: “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
Once the truth of this verse came alive in my by the Holy Spirit, I had the faith in God to override any fears or doubt that has tried to separate me from God’s blessings. I learned to trust God even against my own doubts! I shift to God’s Word and hold fast to it! But, before I had developed that trust, I had one other problem that I’ll discuss in Step 3.
I hated myself when I was new to faith so I felt unworthy at first to receive anything from God. But as I read stories in the New Testament about Jesus healing people such as the blind man who asked Jesus to have mercy on him, I began to see God’s love for me and His truth that I was worthy in Christ to receive from God.
I learned that I couldn’t receive anything from God on my own, but in Christ I could do all things. Looking to myself to be good enough to receive from God was fruitless. I also confessed the fruit of the spirit verses from Galatians 5:22-23 to draw nearer to God.
Galatians 5:22-23: 22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
I learned to see myself as God sees me and all believers through Jesus Christ. It was then that I began to experience victory through Christ over whatever problems came against me. When it came to healing, I believed that God always desires that His people are in good health and healed of whatever may afflict them.
3 John 1:2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
The Progression Of My Healing Experiences
Throughout my life I have been healed of cancer and many issues such as arthritis. I was healed of a deep-rooted problem that stemmed from my family culture going back four generations of my family that I had information about. It could have been longer. The healings I’m most grateful for are those over my children when they were children and even has adults. They pray for themselves now, but ask for prayers in agreement.
Learning to draw nearer to God helped me to hear the guidance of the Holy Spirit and follow it. As I did, healing followed with the wisdom I needed to remain healed and separated from future problems.
My Healing Experience Conclusion:
Because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ I became assured that I could be healed of anything. I had the proof of that spiritual fact with my life. I have gone through most of my adult life in perfect health except during periods where I wasn’t eating properly.
None of my healings came from a supernatural experience by the Holy Spirit, although many people are healed in such instances. However, I was healed simply by the prayer of faith while confessing God’s Word.
Today, I listen to the meditation recordings I made about healing, other blessings, and character traits to continually grow in faith for God’s Word. I hope this article has been helpful to you. Write me and let me know!
