Can I be Effective in Healing Ministry without Spiritual Gifts?

In the discussion about spiritual gifts, such as the gift of healings, we may well wonder whether we can minister healing effectively if we are not moving in the gifts. We could ask: is it even worth ministering to the sick if I do not move in the gifts?

Based on scripture, the answer must be a resounding “yes”. The thing about God is that He honors hunger for his Word, His Presence and His works. Remember that in Mark 16, Jesus Himself said through the Great Commission that believers would,

… place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.

The only qualifier He gives here is that you are a believer. In addition, His words in John 14:12 are,

I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

So yes, you can minister effectively to the sick through the laying on hands, the anointing with oil, the Prayer of Agreement, Declaration or any of the other methods discussed earlier that are not based on spiritual gifts, but on faith. Most important, as I mentioned in the last post, are patience, compassion and outrage. You may have to be one who seizes these things by force, as in Matthew 11:12,

From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.

You may have to, as a successful healing ministry does not come easily, even with the gifts. Last, never stop seeking for spiritual gifts, including Healings, Faith, and Miracles, the latter of which I will be discussing next. Paul writes to the Corinthians (1 Cor. 12:31),

But eagerly desire the greater gifts.

Do you have a hunger to see healings in your family, church and ministry? If so, do write and share this with us.
