Keys to Divine Healing
For the supernatural Christian, there’s nothing more frustrating than seeing one person after another healed and then praying for someone who isn’t. You release power. You exercise authority. You kick out a demon but the symptoms remain. It’s natural to wonder what happened. What am I missing? What am I overlooking? The keys to divine healing continue to elude you.
I’d like to offer an analogy that may shed light on the real nature of the problem:
When a patient arrives in the Emergency Department, whether they have a gunshot wound or a fever, a systematic evaluation is done to determine what their problem is and what should be done about it. A doctor does a physical exam and obtains a history from the patient. Vital signs are obtained and diagnostic tests are done. An X-ray or CT scan is obtained. An ultrasound may be done and blood work is ordered. The physician gathers as much information as possible then arrives at a diagnosis and puts together a treatment plan based on their findings.
This is the standard approach to emergency medicine. When used properly, it’s an effective way to diagnose and treat someone you know nothing about. It’s effective because it’s systematic. The interview, assessment, and tests are standardized. There’s little variability from one patient to the next. That means a doctor is less likely to overlook something, accidentally. Because this is how I was trained as a paramedic, I use a similar approach for healing.
Increasing our effectiveness in healing and deliverance is a matter of developing a standardized approach. We begin by creating a list of tools that we know are effective and then making sure we’re employing all of them. The list of tools would include such things as identity, faith, power, authority, and emotional healing. Standardization doesn’t remove the Holy Spirit from the equation. Quite the opposite. One of the tools is revelation from God about the specific problem we’re facing.
A few years ago, I created a list of keys to divine healing. I wrote a blog post on the 8 that I had come up with at the time. The list soon expanded to 12 and then to 15 items. Today, it stands at 18. I recorded a message where I discuss the keys to divine healing that I use today. If you know what they are, and you’re able to operate in them, your effectiveness in healing will increase.
