It is a sad thing to witness an individual going from healing meeting to healing meeting asking God to heal them, and yet they never receive their healing.

Why is it sad? It is sad because their lack of belief is keeping their healing from manifesting. It is a head belief and not a heart knowing that God is a healer.

We often think we have faith for healing, but as soon as a symptom arises, we go right back into doubting. Doubting is unbelief and it will stop your healing. The Word of God tells us that when doubt and unbelief set into our thinking, they will hinder our prayers. If doubt enters, God cannot.
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering (not doubting in any form); for he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think he will receive anything of the Lord.
(James 1:6-7)
Wavering is doubt, and doubt means to go off what you believed God will do for you. If your faith to be healed is shaky, the reason it is unstable is because there is a lack of Word. Lack of faith to be healed is due to a shortage of hearing the Word of God go into your ears and into your heart.
There was a man in Lystra who needed healing. Paul recognized that he had faith because he received and believed the Word of God being taught.
(Acts 14:8-9)
The man Paul referred to received healing because faith came by his hearing the Word of God. It stirred his faith to believe.

I have seen people get healed during a healing service and the next time I see them, they are still talking about their pain. They walked out of their healing because of the words they were speaking.

They were words of unbelief and doubt. They believed in the symptoms and not the Word of God they heard, so the symptoms won out over the Word of God preached.

God will heal those who have faith for it. If you need healing, stop seeking man's opinion. Seek God's promise and His Word, so that you will have the faith to be healed.
