Question of the Day

When Kenneth and Gloria started their journey of faith they had questions too—lots of them! So, we've compiled the most frequently asked questions by people like you—people who earnestly desire to find God's answers to the practical, real-life challenges of everyday living. We have a new question every day, so check back often!

If you’re standing in faith for healing but sense a blockage to receiving, there are several hindrances to receiving healing to prayerfully consider.

  1. Your love walk. Faith works by love, so if you are out of alignment (even just a little) in your love walk, your faith won’t work as well. Review 1 Corinthians 13 and be sure you’re showing patience, kindness and selflessness to those around you. Check your heart, and be sure you haven’t been gossiping or judging others.
  2. Unforgiveness. This is also tied to love, but it is so common and such a big blessing-blocker, it deserves a point of its own. If there is anyone—anyone at all—whom you haven’t forgiven fully, now is the time. Don’t let a grudge keep you from receiving what’s yours—HEALING!
  3. Doubt or Fear. If you’re believing for healing, but still have doubt or fear, you’re what the Bible calls a double-minded man. And Scripture says a double-minded man receives nothing from God. If this is your blocker, persistently resist fear and doubt. Speak against it. Feed your faith, and starve your fears to death.

If none of these appear to be the reason you’re having trouble receiving your healing, remember to ask the Holy Spirit. He promises to guide you into all truth (John 14:17).
