"And these signs shall follow them that believe… they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover”
I remember I said, “What do you mean. Healing always comes? Not everybody gets healed”.
I didn’t say they all received it,” He answered. Then He spoke very sternly to me. “I do My part. And I said they would recover!”
Those words hit me like a ton of bricks. He said they would recover. He never lies. So if He said they would recover, then that means healing always comes. It’s not God who’s holding back. It’s the receivers who aren’t receiving.
Since then, I’ve never had any trouble laying hands on people and believing for them to be healed. Whether they walk away well or not, I just keep standing in faith for them. In fact, I know if that fellow who went away still sick ever lines his faith up with God and me-I don’t care if it’s five years from now-he’ll be healed.
