More than an exercise

I met a man this week who has been suffering from problems in his hip due to a several years old injury. We chatted for a few moments and then I prayed for God to heal his hip. As he was testing it out, after the prayer, he noticed it felt a little different, but not completely better. Then he said this to me, “That was a cute little exercise you did there, but you need to understand that my hip is fused together and there is nothing that can be done to fix it.” His response was a little comical on the surface, not because he didn’t have faith, but because of the way he expressed his position. This opened an opportunity for me to share some testimonies with him about what we have seen God do in the past. Prayer is so much more than an exercise, it’s a step of faith with an expectation that the one we are praying to is able and willing to accomplish our requests. There is nothing he cannot do. Even when doctors say something is impossible, we know that nothing is impossible with God. The one who designed the human body is fully capable of healing the body, and he wants us to partner with him in delivering the healing that people need. So, I want to encourage you today that if you have been contending for a healing, and it hasn’t come yet, don’t give up. Your prayers are more than an exercise. God has heard you, and he will answer. Keep contending and you will see a breakthrough!
