You’re healed every time you pray. You may not feel like it. You may not see it. But trust God on this one—you are healed.
How can you be certain of this?
Psalm 103:2-3 says to praise the Lord and not to forget his benefits for He forgives all our sins and heals all our diseases. God wants to heal us. He really does. But sometimes we ask for one thing and He sees something else that has to come first.
Let’s say your gallbladder is acting up. So you pray for God to fix it. And, no surprise here, your insides still feel as though you just drank muriatic acid. Still, God healed you as soon as you prayed. How is that?
Well, it may very well be that while you were focused on your gallbladder, God shined His healing light a few layers deeper to that burning sensation in your gut that flares up every time you think of Uncle George. You know the one who humiliated you in front of the entire family. The one you can’t forgive. It may just be that once that festering sore is taken care of, the rest will be easy. And until it’s taken care of, fixing the other problem will be like applying salve to a broken foot. We see this in scripture when Jesus tells the lame man that his sins are forgiven, and after that, he tells him to pick up his mat and walk.
Does this mean that every time we have a physical symptom, there’s a spiritual symptom underneath? No. But only God knows.
So it’s best that we pray and He heals—any way He wants.
