…Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. (1 John 4:4)
Many people jump over into the arena of reason and try to figure God out.
For example, they’ll think, “Why did God heal the blind woman instantly and not the little boy?” I don’t understand that. They’ll sit around and try to figure it out in their head and miss their own healing.
Don’t ever try to figure God out. We can’t figure Him out in our little peanut brain! We should just go ahead and rejoice in what He does do, whether it’s instantaneous or over a period of time.
The problem is not with God. In the case of the blind woman and the little boy, one of them probably took hold of healing instantly, and the other probably took hold of it gradually.
You see, oftentimes, the healing power of God is administered to a person, and the healing process becomes evident later on. Healing is by degrees and it is based on two conditions.
First, it is based on the degree of healing power administered.
Second, it is based on the degree of faith that gives action to the healing power administered.
Sometimes the healing power of God is administered to a person to such a degree that the person is supernaturally charged with the power of God, just as a person might be charged with electricity.
And yet no real or final healing takes place until something happens that releases the faith of the individual.
Spirit-filled believers should be conscious of the healing power of God and the life of God that is in them (see 1 John 4:4).
They can do it if they’ll wait on God, meditate on His Word, and pray.
Confession: The life of God is in me. Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world!
