Why Do We Not Get Healed

So many people ask why did sister so and so not get healed? Why doesn't brother so and so receive his healing? They worship the Lord, they believe in God, they believe Jesus died for their sins. Why do they still not get healed?

We can believe all day long but not act upon the word of God and receive nothing. That is why we read earlier about being believing believers. We can't just read the bible each day, pray about the same thing every day but not believe that we are receiving, and also not acting upon what the word tells us to do.

Look in Proverbs and you will see what I am saying.

Prov 4 v 20-22.....My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh....

Let's stop there a minute and meditate on what the word is telling us to do. Pay attention to what the word is saying, keep them in your heart, this is where your life and health come from. The word of God. You can not continue to watch soap operas, read trashy novels, hang out with the wrong crowd, join in with gossip and off color jokes, you can not keep feeding these things into your heart and not expect to be ill. What you take in has to come out in some form or manner.

Meditate on His words and not on the television, listen to praise and worship music, and not lyrics that are not from God and are not speaking like God would speak. You say, oh, it does not hurt anything to listen to my kind of music, or tell a joke now and then or watch the shows I like to watch. Ok, well you keep listening to the lies of the devil and stay sick then. Stay in pain, stay in strife, stay in your misery. Because where those things are, God is not. If you want to be healed, you need to be in His presence. AMEN! If His words are not what you are meditating on, and keeping before your eyes and ears, then how can you expect to receive from Him. You will receive from what you are in tuned to. AMEN!

Prov 4 v 23-27....Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put perverse lips far from you. Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you. Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or the left; remove your foot from evil....

Ok, that kind of says what we were saying above. Keep your heart with all diligence. Don't let harmful things that are not of God enter into your heart. How do you do that? Keep them out of your eyes, and your hearing. Put away from you a deceitful mouth and perverse lips, in other words, quit gossiping about your neighbors (meaning anyone) and quit using the language you hear others use, and it's not just talking about filthy language, it is things you say like, you look bad today, are you feeling sick today, or I am so poor I can't pay attention. Quit talking like the world using perverse lips and start speaking what the word says over yourself. AMEN! Keep your eyes straight ahead, do not turn to the right or left. Keep your eyes and ears intuned to what the word is saying, do not turn to the world for confirmation of sickness. God says in His word you were healed, don't look to someone else to tell you otherwise. Don't let friends and family who stay in the world's thinking instead of the WORD, steer you in the wrong direction. Ponder your path, let your feet stay on His path, do not wander off and join in with evil. Establish your ways, know who you are in Christ Jesus and let all those around you know who you are. Remember in order for the enemy to be afraid of you and to know that you have the victory over him, he first has to know that you know who you are in Christ Jesus. He has to to know that you know you have authority over him, before he will believe it and flee.

The only way to receive your healing is to act upon the word of God. To do what He tells you to do. To keep His instructions before your eyes and ears and in your heart. That is your prescription for your healing. You just have to be diligent and faithful to take it everyday. AMEN!

John 6 v 63...It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life....
