So a client today, at the end of our successful visit about a legit need he has for a cabin suddenly changed gears and says he don’t know why but God just told him I need prayer – so I shared a bit with him my story with NF2. So him and his wife pray for me and predicted I will wake up in the morning healed – like totally will be healed no question about it and I have to have total faith that I will wake up completely healed.
I totally believe in healing and that we can pray in God’s power asking to heal immediately – however God doesn’t always choose to do so – so thru this whole conversation when asked if I believe in healing I said absolutely I do if it’s God’s will and I also believe God can choose not to heal and either way it is for His purpose and Glory – this couple had more the attitude that no you have to believe you will wake up tomorrow healed regardless and that God’s will for me is for me to be healed.
It may be God’s will for me to be healed in his timing! And I will continue to ask for healing in faith that he will if it’s His will for my life however I am also okay with the fact that if He doesn’t choose to heal me then that is His perfect plan for my life and He will look after me and provide.
The take away I have from this esp after #mattchandlers sermon yesterday on the prosperity gospel is how huge of a relief to realize we can have total faith and confidence in the sovereignty of God. If I expect to be healed in the morning once I wake up I will be in total misery wondering what I did wrong or how I can have more faith so I am healed – instead when we understand the sovereignty of God, we can have full faith in healing yet understand that sometimes healing comes in a different form then physical healing!
