Dependency On Feelings
One major hindrance to receiving healing is a dependence on feelings. Although it releases our faith to see someone healed, the basis of the faith for healing must be the Word of God. We must know what the Word says!

Isaiah 53:1b says, "Who has believed our report?"

This is a question we all need to answer for ourselves. Do I believe the Word of God?
  • I have a choice to make.
  • Will I believe the doctor's report? Will I believe God's report?
  • Will I believe my traditions? Will I believe what God has spoken and revealed to my spirit?
When we receive a rhema word from God, faith springs into our spirits. Regardless of the doctor's report, our traditions, feelings, or experiences of the past, faith has come and faith believes God's report.

In the following comparison, you will see that faith is superior to feelings.

Healing Through Faith
Healing is through faith. We are healed as we learn, believe, and then act on the Word of God.

Paul wrote, "For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect? Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar" (Rom. 3:3-4a).

God is faithful. He is ready to fulfill His promise of healing. All we must do to receive our healing is to believe!
  • By His wounds we have been healed.
  • By His wounds we are healed!
  • I am saved because God says so!
  • Sometimes I don't feel saved—but I know I am because I believe God's message.
These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.
(1 John 5:13a)
I Am Healed Because God Says So!
"Sometimes I don't feel healed—but I know that I am because I believe God's message."
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
(Isa. 53:5)
We must receive what is rightfully ours by faith regardless of what we feel or see. We mustn't let the unbelief of others steal our healing.

Some ask, "Why, if it's God's will for all to be healed, aren't all people healed?"

We might also ask, "Why, if it's God's will for all to be saved, aren't all people saved?"

The answer to both questions is, "They must believe."

We receive salvation by faith in God's Word. We also receive healing by faith in God's Word.

Faith always prevails over feelings!
