Mark 11:24 (NKJV) Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
The prayer of faith is a prayer that receives something whenever it is used. Jesus said that when we pray the prayer of faith, we are to “believe that we receive.” We are to believe that we have received the healing power of God. It has NOTHING to do with feelings because it is received by faith anchored in the Word. This is the reason that the use of anointing oil and the prayer of faith is a method of God’s healing power that can be administered to a Christian’s sick body.
There is something we can do AFTER we have received the healing power. Many people have the idea that once the power has been received, then the work is all over. They believe that they no longer have to think about this power, or talk about it. But this is far from the truth!
We are to meditate upon the healing Scriptures and to give ourselves wholly to the gift received.
Every time the enemy comes and begins to create doubt in our minds whether the power of healing is working in us, we should respond to these negative thoughts with a bold declaration that Jesus has supplied the healing power through His death, burial and resurrection. Tell the enemy how the healing power was administered to our body. Then declare with confidence that the healing power is restoring our body to perfect health. By doing this we will successfully resist the devil every time!
We should refuse to allow the healing power of God to lie dormant within us! If we stop thinking and talking about it and giving thanks for the healing power of God in us, we will be guilty of neglecting the power and allowing it to become dormant.
If the healing power is valuable enough for God to supply it to us through the sacrifice of His Son, then it is worthy to be thought about, spoken of, and be thankful for. We keep it active in our lives so that all can see what our Heavenly Father has given to us through the laying on of hands.
The person who has received his full healing manifestation is the person who has kept the healing power active within him by giving himself wholly to it. He refused to quit just because results did not appear instantly. He stayed the course and kept the power working until he was satisfied with the fruit produced. Once the healing power has been obtained, keep the switch of faith turned on!
Sermon Series – Job and I (Part 4)
因为仇敌总是伺机来动摇我们的信心，叫我们怀疑是否真有医治的大能运行在我们里面， 对于这些负面的想法，我们就要用大胆的宣告来做出回应， 藉着耶稣的受死. 埋葬和复活，祂已经给予了我们医治的能力。去告诉仇敌，医治的大能已经在我们里面运行！并且用信心宣告靠着这医治的能力，我们已恢复健康完好的身体！每当我们如此行的时候，我们就能战胜仇敌的干扰。
