"God allows in His wisdom what He could easily prevent by His power." - Graham Cooke
Why does healing sometimes not happen? I haven't heard many people speak on this topic except to say, "just keep praying, it can take hundreds of times to practice before it happens." But what if we could heal on our first try? What if we could break chains of addiction with a single prayer? What if we can have our prayers answered all the time? What if, "whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." - Mark 11:24
How do we get that level of faith?
Isn't our walk with God to become more like Jesus? Jesus said, "Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does." John 5:19
So if Jesus only did what he saw his Father doing, then we can learn to live that way also. He did what was necessary to Glorify our Father. We can get to a place in our walk with God that we simply abide and do what he shows us.
Jesus didn't heal eveyone he met, but He did heal everyone who came to Him in faith.
What if you're the one longing to be healed? What if you've had prayer over the issue lots of times with no relief or answer? Then I say, keep asking, keep seeking and keep knocking. In the meantime God is working within you to develop perseverence, faith and glory. I had a disease called fibromyalgia for over 10yrs. I had received a word on healing from it and still suffered a couple more years. We should never be afraid or ashamed of process. What I've come to know is that God's ways are so much higher and he is always Good. No matter what the circumstances(world) looks like, we can rise above and get a better view. Heaven's view.
We can ask questions and we can fellowship with the Holy Spirit while in the hallway of life's challenges. There is always something God is up to instead of what our circumstances look like. When we learn to partner with what God is doing instead of focusing on the pain, we get to find joy in the journey and gain an understanding of what it means to, "consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance." John 1:2-3
