When Healing Miracles Seem Elusive.

Category: Elusive healing

I don’t know about you, but when I’m sick or have a physical problem, I pray. I ask others to pray. It’s the best time-tested way of getting better. Right?

I also believe in miraculous healing. I’ve experienced it. Years ago, I had a fractured tail bone ( I fell hard on my back while ice skating). Talk about pain! Every time I sat down, PAIN. It was awful. But then one amazing night I attended a healing conference full of expectation. When the ministers called for those with tail bone problems, I flew to the stage. In a matter of moments, I was completely healed. No more pain. What an experience! An encounter with Jesus. Since then, I’ve been passionate about healing.

But in this season of my life, I am still learning healing can come in other forms. Doctors, of course. I would never want to discount their medical knowledge and I have benefited from it many times.

Recently, I was reading a book entitled, “Beautiful One.” Each chapter is written by a well-known woman in ministry. I was especially struck by the chapter by Randy Clark’s wife, De Anne. Like me, early on in her walk with God, she experienced miraculous healing. But also like me, later on, when physical problems arose, miracles seemed elusive. What she discovered was that God was speaking to her about her temple, her body. One time she was led to fast. Once she detoxed, she felt much better. Another time she realized her breathing was too shallow and learned to take deeper breaths. Then she was led to a book that taught her how to repair inflammation in her body. Each time God was teaching her how to better care for her body.

De Anne says, “God has a plan mapped out for your life, and it includes a life of health and physical well-being, as well as spiritual. Seek the Lord’s wisdom in all things. Ask Him, ‘What do I do now?'”

Be encouraged. Healing will come if you continue to pursue the Healer.
