I will not be moved by a negative report. I will not be moved by negative symptoms. I will not be moved by bad news. If I’m ever moved, it’s only an inch, a moment, before God firmly plants me back on my rock of faith. I refuse to give into fear or worry, doubt or concern. Faith not only pleases my God, which is reason enough to be in faith, but in addition, faith moves mountains! I have a lot of mountains to move, doubt only increases the size of the mountains, it does nothing to help move them. (Hebrews 11:6 – Matthew 17:20)

I had the opportunity to be moved by a bad report yesterday. Yet another infection has been located in my already sick child. When the negative begins piling up, it can really affect your emotions, which then can affect your faith. And although it was upsetting to see this doctors report, I have another report that says my son is healed. Although I read, in black and white, the doctors report that said, yet another infection lives in my boys body, another report, written in black and white and red, cancels that doctors report out. (1 Peter 2:24)

Do the negative reports get canceled out automatically just because we’re Christians? No. We have a part to play in activating the blessings bought by Christ. Just like we have to confess with our mouths Jesus is Lord, believing in our heart, to be saved, we also must pray and believe for healing, when that bad report comes in. It’s a choice we make every day, with every bad report, with every negative symptom, to stay in faith, or falter. We choose to believe the report from the doctor, or the report from God. Does this mean we just deny the bad report? No. The doctors report may be a fact, but it isn’t the Truth! The Truth trumps any fact, if you believe it does. We have to believe and speak to that mountain! (Romans 10:9 – Mark 11:23-24)

God’s Word keeps me positive, God’s word keeps my emotions in check, God’s Word is my reality. As I sit here, typing this out, I’m fatigued from the disease attacking my body. But I’m alive! I’m healing. I honestly believe I’ll one day awake healed. I believe it for my son as well. I refuse to be moved. Like I’ve said before, I am human, and sometimes get into my flesh, but I don’t remain there… I can’t afford to. I am the faith supply for my son, as he’s too young to really understand how to believe for his healing. I’m responsible for praying over him, believing God’s Word’s for my son, in addition to believing them for me. (Mark 16:18)

I don’t spend my days striving for healing either. I’m resting. Most days, I’m resting, I should say. I’m resting in the firmly rooted knowledge that Jesus died for our spirits and our bodies. I’m resting in the firmly rooted knowledge that God didn’t make us sick, isn’t keeping us sick, that He does want us well, as much, if not more, than we want to be well. I’m resting in the fact that Jesus is the mirror image of God and Jesus never made anybody sick, never kept them sick, never said anything but that He was always willing to heal, which He did with everyone who came to Him. (And we know the Bible teaches us that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever! Hebrews 13:8)

This morning I awoke with a fresh supply of faith. Stepping onto my back porch, my eyes were drawn up – toward God –  His glorious morning kissed my face. The colors, the sky, the clouds, the birds, and the scenery – a gentle, beautiful reminder that God is all powerful, and extremely generous with His children. He paved the way to our healing when He sent His Son to the Cross 2,000 years ago, simply because He loves us that much that He doesn’t want His children suffering with disease. (1 Peter 2:24)

I adore Him and He adores me and my children. How could I not trust His Words? And you know what? If healing never came in this life, it will in the next, and we’ll both never ever know this kind of disease for the rest of our eternity. This life is but a vapor, but a moment in time, in the grand scheme of things, it’s nothing. But I know, deeeeep in my heart, that God’s plans are good toward us, Jesus paid the price, and we will walk in healing in this life as well as next. (Jeremiah 29:11 – Matthew 7:11 – James 1:17)
