The Second Attitude
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. — EPHESIANS 2:8
Remember, the people who have the second attitude toward healing believe that God heals today, but only according to a special act of faith.
I had people say to me after I was healed and raised from the bed of sickness, “Well, God just gave you a special faith so you could be healed.” No, He didn’t!
These people believe in healing, but they believe that God only heals in answer to a special act of faith—and only when He wills to. They believe that healing doesn’t belong to the child of God and that it’s not included in God’s redemptive plan.
They will say, “If God gives you faith to be healed, you will, and if He doesn’t, you won’t. You just have to do the best you can.” I’ve heard them say it. I don’t believe them, though. I believe that healing is a part of man’s redemption in Christ and that it belongs to every child of God.
No special act of faith is required to obtain healing. Remember, the Lord said to me, “Her faith made her whole; your faith will make you whole.” Well, what kind of faith is required to obtain it? Just the faith you are saved by.
Confession: I don’t have to have a special kind of faith to receive healing. I can use the same faith that I was saved by. I can receive healing according to my redemptive rights in Christ.
