What do you do when you are in pain? Do you deny the pain? Do you say, "I don't hurt. I don't have pain. I'm not really in pain. My back doesn't hurt"?

No, you ignore it for a higher vision, a higher revelation. What do you look at? You look at the unchanging Word of the Living God.

Hebrews 6:18 says it is impossible for God to lie. If it is impossible for God to lie, then the only other alternative is that God must tell the truth.

So if God says that with Jesus' stripes I was healed, then I must be healed. If I am not healed, God is a liar. And if God is a liar, the Bible is invalid and of no effect.

"Yeah, but I don't feel well."

That is your problem. You are walking by your senses instead of walking by the Word of God. You say you believe the Bible, but you do not. You believe the circumstances.

I have seen too many people come to meetings to be prayed for, then the first thing they say when they leave the prayer line is, "No, no. It didn't work. I don't feel any better." And they never will.

Now, I am talking about faith here, not the supernatural intervention of God. When the gifts of the Spirit are operating, God is initiating it, and you do not have to believe anything.

But you cannot walk in those signs and wonders all your life. And a lot of people lose their healing before they get out the front door, because they do not know how to keep it by faith.

We must walk by faith.
