Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth (Luke 18:8)?
This man heard Paul speaking. Paul, observing him intently and seeing that he had faith to be healed (Acts 14:9).
Please notice something very important here. Paul’s faith did not heal this man; the man’s own faith worked the healing. So many people think they must find some anointed Christian to pray the prayer of healing over them. That’s not true. Jesus paid the price for all healing; it belongs to us now; all we have to do is appropriate it with our faith. We use our faith, in this case, to receive what has already been given. Please notice something else about this Scripture, “This man heard Paul speaking.” It is important to hear preaching about healing, because as the Word about healing is taught, our faith grows, and we enter a state of reception of what has been taught. As we fill ourselves with Scriptures about healing, we will find ourselves more and more filled with faith to be healed.
