Sickness can be spiritual, physical, emotional, and mental.
There are instances of healing that happen immediately at the very first moment of prayer, anointing and there are instances of healing that happen only after long period of waiting and many experiences of prayer.
There is God-ward side and man-ward side to every battle and blessings, so while waiting on Jehovah Rapha, the God our healer for full manifestation of healing.
SACRIFICE OF PRAISE AND JOY
Thanksgiving is a vital key to experiencing the miraculous, we must not reserve for when miracle comes to full fruition.
It is in the Holy atmosphere of praise and worship that healing and miracle begin to manifest.
The sacrifice of Joy is the most difficult to offer when afflicted or troubled within and out.
Yet Nehemiah 8:10 says the Joy of the Lord is our strength.
Strength is emotional toughness and resistance, it is defensive ability.
Dancing, singing melodies, reciting psalms, smiling, laughing rejoicing in what the Lord says about us.
BE REALISTIC IN EXPECTATIONS
we need to overcome the realms of our 5 senses and human reasoning.
Our words have power to create or destroy.
Proverb 18vs 21 says there are power of life and death in the tongue
“I can’t handle this anymore, then the situation can be out of control”
“it is hurting more, as difficult as it may sound, our words control our lives“
Mark 10vs 50 reveals the blind Bartimaeus threw aside his garment and rose and came to Jesus. The garment to this blind man was his valuable asset, being his status identification, his means of collecting alms, may be his source of shelter and warmth.
To us it can be no longer rely on whatever we had as any other hope of survival.
Casting away all doubt, no thinking otherwise.
Casting away all fear and connection of discouragement.
prayer is successful only when it is based on God’s word.”The supernatural therapy to supernatural healing is the word of God”
UNDERSTAND AND KEEP CONFESSING THE WORD OF GOD
Possess the promises of healing in Christ Jesus Ipeter2:24, Isaiah 53:4.
To keep confessing the word of God help curse the root cause of the problems and it releases Jesus into the situations.
Sometimes, healing seems to be delayed. In Exodus 5:22-23, Moses spoke the word of God(let my people go and serve me) to Pharaoh but he refused.
God gave Moses the strength to continue confronting Pharaoh with the word of God till his final destruction.
2Chronicle 7:14 says, if my people who are called by name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins and heal their land.
There is need to examine life from any area of sin that has not being dealt with, repent, make restitutions if need be. It causes to falter in confidence before God and making request known, it also gives Satan ground to condemn and judge.
CHOOSE TO PERSEVERE
(waiting, hoping and trusting God)
God also uses our circumstances to refine and build our characters
Delay in manifestation sometimes means to grow us in faith and patience making us spiritually fit.
