I want to share a video clip of a discussion over the issue of miraculous healing in the Christian faith. Watching this has been greatly encouraging to me. I watch it frequently. It regards the question of: why do some people get healed? A common question, I believe, that we all ask or will eventually ask, especially when our family members or friends are struck with terminal illnesses.
There was a time I had felt like I had great security in not having an answer to this question because of my trust in the character of God. I discovered more recently how much doubt and anger I had in my heart (there are many elements that led to this, too broad in detail to share all in one post). This was exposed to me when Tessa and I abruptly moved from Tahiti to Seattle for 1 year to care for my mother who was recovering from heart failure. It felt like every prayer was unanswered and pulled my heart further away from God.
I recently recognized and responded to the damage in my heart that has adversely effected my relationships with my family and God. It was during a week of lectures on the DTS that Tessa and I are leading. The topic for that week was Holy Spirit and our teacher was Kevin Norris. I felt like the Holy Spirit had started something in my heart but it wasn't until I had "randomly" found this video clip while cruising YouTube that I felt full blown regeneration of my soul!
I encourage anyone reading this to watch this video if you feel like you desire to grow in your love for Jesus and faith restored and imparted!
