How Healing Comes – Avenue #1 (continued)

I’d like to continue in the vein of the last post for a little longer. I have seen over many years in prayer and healing ministry the tendency of most people towards skepticism of the unseen. Let me explain. We have spent most of our time, education, and training in the physical, empirical world. We see, feel, and touch and only then can it be so. We even have the popular saying: “I’ll believe it when I see it.”

The problem is that with the things of faith, it is exactly the opposite. It is a new regime that says:

you’ve got to believe it in order to see it.

That goes against everything we have been trained to believe and how we are tuned to experience the world. So when we run into a scripture such as Matthew 21:22,

“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer,”

most of us get brainfreeze. Do you now see why the scripture says in Romans 12:2:

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

The truth is that we cannot operate in the realm of faith and the miraculous if our minds are not radically transformed to believe before we see. Before we see. That is a battle, including for me, with my scientific training. But then again, I have eagerly accepted the new regime, the new paradigm willingly. Why? Because it’s God’s paradigm.

It’s so strange isn’t it? The new birth is miraculous, it is also miraculous when we go to be with the Lord. Yet, many of us become comfortable living a natural life in the interim, divorced from miracles. That just makes no sense to me. So daily, I’m learning to believe before I see. Are you?
