Some people come up to me and ask if I have ever prayed for healing. I have had a disability that affects my balance, muscles in my legs and walking since I was two years old. I have been a Christian since I was six, but the thought of being healed never became real to me until I was 23.
Even after I believed that I could be healed, I wasn’t. And I am still not physically healed. Occasionally I still have the conversation about healing and how faith correlates with healing. “Do you not have enough faith to be healed?” “Do you not believe you can be healed?” “Do you think God is waiting for you to fully put your faith in him to be healed?”
How do you handle those questions?
I was always struggling with this until I was in a small group setting and we were discussing prophecy and spiritual gifts. The speaker that night decided to talk about how all the gifts of the Spirit were connected. He talked about faith and prophecy and then he talked about faith and healing. I thought, “Here we go, again.”
