God's Will To Heal - page 8

This is true concerning being born again. When you knew God loved You, you knew He paid the
price for you, and you knew it was His will to save you, you had faith to be born again. Well,
you also have to know that God’s power can heal you, it is His will to heal you, and the price has
already been paid. Many, many do not know that, or if they heard it, they didn’t accept it.
Second, what’s been provided by grace must be received by faith. You have to receive it
actively. You have to appropriate it with your faith. Just because someone bought a meal for you,
it doesn’t mean you’re going to get full unless you go get it. You have to appropriate it.
Third, many people don’t obey God and follow His perfect plan for their life. We talked about
the good and acceptable and perfect will of God. If you don’t obey God, you’re going to go
down paths that you shouldn’t have taken. Do you know that when you get off on the wrong
road, you are going to go through towns and places that you would not have gone through had
you been on the right road? A lot of people are going through a lot of stuff, and it’s bad, and
they’re trying to say it’s the will of God, but the truth is, they’re on the wrong road.
Let’s back up to the first reason. Matthew 9:27-28 says, “And when Jesus departed thence, two
blind men followed Him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us. And when
he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them…” Notice He
didn’t just heal them. He talked to them. He asked them questions. Why? Does it matter what
they think and what they believe and do? Or did the Lord just go around healing everyone
indiscriminately, regardless of what they thought or believed? Some people try to say that He
did, to prove His deity. It’s not true. Why ask questions? Why look for a response? Why begin to
lead them in a direction for them to believe a certain thing? Because their faith is one of the
biggest determining factors in whether they’re going to be healed or not. I’m talking about Jesus
What did He say? “Believe ye that I am able to do this?” Now the Leper had that one settled,
didn’t he? He said, “I know You can, if You will.” These blind men didn’t have that one
expressed yet, so He asked them, “Do you believe I’m able to do this? That I can?” What did
they say? “Yes, yes.” Good answer. Then what did He do? He touched them.
Does He still touch people today? Do you know you can get touched right where you are? You
don’t have to wait for any fast music. You don’t have to wait for someone, some man, to touch
you. He can touch you right where you are. All you have to do is believe these words.
I was teaching in Healing School several years ago, and it was a small group of 15 people or so.
We were fairly informal, and when I was teaching some things about healing, a lady looked up
and said, “Excuse me.”
I said, “Yes?”
She asked, “Does that mean that I just believe I receive my healing, and I just believe I take it,
and I have it?”
I said, “That’s right.”
