KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 14:29 “And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus”.
Please read through Matthew 14:25-31
The story in the above passage explains to us how the power of God works in various aspects of our lives. For our study, we are considering the power of God in relation to divine healing.
In the story apostle Peter after seeing the Lord walk on water asked Him to command him to also walk on the water to Him. The Lord asked him to come, and he obeyed, walking on the water; but as he saw the waves boisterous, he was afraid and then began to sink.
In receiving divine healing we respond to the word of God by faith. If you are prayed for by a fellow behavior who knows the word of God and prays in faith, God’s power is set forth into operation as you accept or believe it. Like the case of Peter he started walking on the water yet he was sustained by the power of God, through the word of His power (Hebrews 1:3). When you also accept or believe what God’s word says, the same word of his power goes into effect and the power of the sickness is totally destroyed. You are healed in that very moment. The symptoms may not change in any way.
In Peter’s case the waves did not stop billowing, the winds did not stop blowing neither did the water become solid stuff for him to walk on, yet he was walking on the liquid which physically can’t, and should never support any body. It was the word of His power that held him above the water.
The moment he looked at the waves and started to fear he lost the influence of the word in his heart and so it manifested physically and he started sinking. It is always the word that heals. (Isaiah 53:1, Isaiah 55:11). When you believe the word with your heart instantly it sets into motion and the sickness is healed. The physical symptoms may abound but in reality the power of the disease is destroyed. (In some cases every symptom would go.) The problem of many people is that they look at their physical changes. Some even claim because the symptoms has improved they are healed or getting better. No and a big no. Your improvement or lack of improvement has nothing to do with your healing, it is fully on how much you place your confidence in the word.
So long as your confidence is in the word of God the disease is powerless and it would soon physically show that you are completely well.
God’s word remains the true remedy for my healing. I have heard what God says by His stripes I was healed, I believe it and I am healed. Irrespective of the physical symptoms. Thank you Lord.
