4 Hindrances That May Be Blocking Your Hoped-for Healing

You believe it's God's will to heal you. You've been prayed for, and the church elders have anointed you with oil. You've done all that you know to do. Now what? What could possibly hinder your healing from manifesting? Let's come up with a checklist to see what might possibly be hindering your healing.

  1. Lack of true revelation concerning healing could hinder your healing from manifesting. What do I mean by lack of true revelation? For instance, you've heard amazing testimonies of others being healed, so you know God heals today. But even still, you are not fully convinced that He wills to heal all people, all the time, of all sickness and disease. And you're even more unsure if He wills to heal you personally. Until this true revelation comes, you will lack the confidence to believe without a shadow of a doubt. James 1:6 tells us, "But let him ask in faith, without wavering. For he who wavers is like a wave of the sea, driven and tossed with the wind." Let's continue with this point about hindrance. And just how does this true revelation come? This question leads us to our next point of study.
  2. Another hindrance could be a lack of the healing word. So often God's people do not read and study the Word of God, or they are not focused in their study, so their faith is weak. I find Satan is a mastermind at distracting God's people from what they need to focus on. If you want healing to manifest, you need to zero in on His healing word. Now is not the time to study finances, but healing and healing only. Stay on target until you hit the bullseye–healing. The Bible is clear about how faith comes. It tells us in Romans 10:17, "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
  3. More often than not, you block your own healing by the faithless words that you speak. And you often speak these faithless confessions without realizing it. You need to change the way in which you speak. You must speak faith for healing, no matter what the circumstance looks like. Proverbs 18:21 teaches us that, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit." 
  4. Another common hindrance would be your actions, or lack of them. If your actions do not line up with faith, you will stop your miracle from manifesting. Faith without works is dead, and dead faith is no faith. Your actions must line up with the Word of God. "So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead" (James 2:17).

These are four major hindrances that will block your healing from manifesting. And they need our constant attention when activating our faith for a miracle.
