Healing comes in two forms #045; both from God

We are all God’s children.

Each of us must know that God wants you well.

Has the devil ever tried to put you under condemnation by telling you, "you are going contrary to faith principles to go to doctors and use medicine when you need healing?"

If so, I believe these words of encouragement will help put your heart at rest. After all it is the temple He dwells in.

God has provided healing for us two ways.

One is divine healing by faith - God's perfect will - and the other by doctors and medicine - God's permissive will - for those whose faith is not so strong.

It is God’s will to heal you.

That’s the first and most important thing for you to understand.

If your faith is strong and you can believe the Word of God without wavering (regardless of what circumstances or symptoms come against you), then you will be able to receive the healing by faith alone.

This kind of faith takes more than hearing a few messages about healing.

It takes full revelation of God's healing power.

If you have not developed that kind of faith, the doctor is the alternative.

If fear rises up in you when you think of doing without medical help then go to the doctor, go in faith.

On the other hand, if you have a sure confidence within you that healing is yours strictly by faith, let your faith do its work and receive your healing (divine healing).

Either way you can rejoice knowing God is working with you, meeting you at the level of your faith.

Thank God for your healing because it is Satan that wants you sick not God.

God wants His temple well and producing good fruit, amen.
