How to Put Your Faith in Its Place—And Be Healed

People write and say they are waiting for the manifestation of their healing. I get it. But according to the Word of God, faith is all the evidence that you need to know you are healed. For clearer understanding, let's delve into this topic a little bit more.

Faith is trust, and as He said to the woman that was hemorrhaging for 12 years and was instantly healed as she activated her faith in His healing virtue in Luke 8:48b, "Daughter, be of good cheer. Your faith has made you well." So too our healing manifests when we put our faith and trust in His healing power.

This woman is so similar to the people of today. She was deathly sick; she tried everything available and still was not healed. But the moment she put her faith in the healing power of the Messiah, her healing manifested.

In Luke 7, we read the account of the centurion's servant who was on his deathbed, and because of the centurion's faith in the power of Jesus to heal the sick, his servant was miraculously healed without anyone touching him. And what were Jesus' words to him in verse 9? "I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel."

Luke 18 contains the amazing testimony of a blind man named Bartimaeus who calls out to Jesus as He is passing by, "'Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!'" (Luke 18:38). Immediately, he regained his sight. Again, what were the words of Jesus concerning his healing? "Your faith has made you well" (Luke 18:42b, NKJV).

Our faith has to be put in its proper place. It's not to be in test results, the disappearance of tumors or symptoms vanishing. Although those things will happen, but the point being is this: Faith in the healing power of Jesus is our evidence that we are healed.

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Heb. 11:1, MEV).

"And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive" (Matt. 21:22).

"Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them" (Mark 11:22-24).
