Whatever we receive from God is received by, through, or because of FAITH.

“Let him ask in faith, nothing 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 anything of the Lord." Jas. 1:6,7. Are you sick? Do you need healing? Then you are in need of faith. Jesus would say to you, as to the woman who touched the hem of His garment: “Thy faith hath made thee whole." Mark 5:34.

Do you feel that you DO have faith, and yet the desired healing does not come? Then you need to reexamine your faith, and do something about your faith!

  1. Is your faith dead? “Faith without works is dead." Jas. 2:26. This may be paraphrased without changing its meaning: “Faith that DOESN'T WORK is dead!"
  2. It may be that your faith is alive and strong, but is easily shaken when the answer is delayed. “Ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. Heb. 10:36.
  3. It may be that your faith is starving. Your faith can only grow and be kept alive as you heed the admonition of I Pet. 2:2 - “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby." Do not expect to have effective faith if you neglect to seek it at its proper source. “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17.
  4. It may be that your faith is being weakened and destroyed by incomplete obedience. Real faith is not a matter of simply taking the benefits God offers through believing that they will come, nor even through believing His promises. Real faith is believing everything God says - His commands and His warnings as well as His promises! GOD'S PROMISES CONCERNING HEALTH AND HEALING ARE DIRECTLY CONNECTED WITH HIS COMMANDS CONCERNING HOLINESS!

Or better still, to fulfill his days of service for the Lord in a state of perfect health, and will at the same time acquire a strong and abiding faith in order to be able to bring health and healing to others. Laymen, exhorters and ministers will find the lessons of this course to be an untold blessing.
