You’ve acted on Jesus’ words:

    And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new
    tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay
    hands on the sick, and they shall recover.   (Mark 16:17-18)

You can have great assurance that there will be a performance of what Jesus has promised, for He watches over His
Word to perform it.  (See Jeremiah 1:12 ASV.)  This is a very positive promise.  Jesus did not say, “You might recover,”
or “I hope that you will recover,” or "Some might possibly recover.”  No!  Without reservation, Jesus declared,
shall recover.”

As a believer, you can lay your own hands upon yourself for healing, or you can utilize the hands of other believers.  If
you do not receive an instantaneous miracle, do not cast away confidence.  When Jesus walked this earth, He healed
people in various ways.  Many were healed instantly, and yet, other people were healed gradually.  Whether you are
healed in the moment or a gradual mending process has begun, you can go your way, praising Him with confidence that
He is keeping His Word with you.

Begin to confess it: “I am recovering.  Jesus said so, and I believe His Word.  I am not relying on how I look, how I feel, or
how others think I look.  I have accepted Jesus’ Word at face value.  I am recovering!”

James I declares that when you ask God for anything, you must ask in faith, without wavering.

    For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.  For let not that man think that he
    shall receive any thing of the Lord.   (James 1:6-7)

Any thing” includes healing.  Your role in this drama of faith is to possess unwavering confidence that the Lord will keep
His Word.  If you waver in your faith, then you deny yourself the Lord’s healing.  Do not waver in your confession of
faith: “By His stripes, I am healed.” (See Isaiah 53:5 NKJV.)

Until your healing is fully manifested, you are engaged in a fight of faith.  It is not a fight against God or His Word but a
fight against the thief, who comes
“to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10).  In this conflict, use the weapons of
your warfare, which are mighty through God for the pulling down of satanic strongholds.  (See II Corinthians 10:4).

You may wonder, Should I continue to have hands laid upon me until my healing is fully manifested?  That is not
necessary.  It would likely be prompted by unbelief, which would totally defeat your purpose.  Healing comes through
acting on the Word of Jesus.  Once is quite enough.

Act like you are recovering.  Begin to do things you could not do before.  When others inquire about your condition,
simply tell them that you are recovering, thanks be to God.

Make no mistake, the devil doesn’t want you to recover.  Here’s how to deal with him.  Declare, “Satan, I resist you in the
name of Jesus.  For it is written,
‘They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.’  In Jesus’ mighty name, I am

Thousands of people have been healed through the ministry of the laying on of hands.  What God has done for others,
He is doing for you.  Praise Him now for your recovery!
