“So he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. There He made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there He tested them, and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.””
James 1:5-8 NKJV
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”
Christ The Healer – F.F. Bosworth
Why some fail to receive their healing is because they believe what their five senses tell them in place of believing the Word of God. “God. We should realize that the five senses belong to the natural man and that they were given to us to be used for the things of this world. But the things of God cannot be discerned, appropriated and known by the natural senses. No kind of physical sensation, such as pain, weakness or sickness, can ever be a good reason for doubting the fulfillment of any divine promise. How foolish it would be for me to doubt the promise of Christ’s second coming because I felt sick or weak, or had a pain. And if a pain is not a good reason for doubting one promise, it is not a good reason for doubting any promise. God is just as faithful to one promise as to another. If it is foolish to doubt God’s promise concerning Christ’s second coming because of pain or any disagreeable feeling, it is equally as foolish to doubt God’s promise to heal because of these things.
The ground upon which we claim the forgiveness of sins is the fact that Christ bore them “in his own body on the tree” (1 Peter 2:24). We must believe that we are forgiven before our feelings can be any different. It is in exactly the same way and on the same ground that we are to appropriate physical healing from The Great Physician. The healing of both our souls and our bodies is based on the unchangeable truth of Christ’s finished work, not on our feelings.
“God gives you the redemptive name, “Jehovah-Rapha,” thereby saying unto you, “I am the Lord that healeth thee.” He wants you to answer with faith, “Yes, Lord, Thou art the Lord that healeth me.” He wants exactly what He says to be true in your experience. You can make no mistake in saying and steadfastly believing what He says: that He is actually healing you at the present moment. He will continue working until you are “perfectly whole.” Faith is saying and believing what God says, and then acting accordingly. The blessings we take by a steadfast faith in God’s promises will always materialize.”
We must not be double-minded
“When appropriating the healing Christ has provided, we must not be double-minded. James says: “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord” (James 1:6–7). We must, as it were, behead ourselves and put on “the mind of Christ.” This means to see only what He says and to act
accordingly. This is implied in our asking “in faith.” Paul tells us to “put off the old man with his deeds.” This includes the old man’s habit of thinking only according to the evidence of the five senses. Putting on the new man and having the mind of Christ includes our thinking and believing what is written, and saying, as He did, “It is written.” Remember, the “new man” is not governed by the evidence of the senses.”
