It is heartening to see reports of miracles of Christian faith healing going on as this TV story in Cleveland demonstrates.
A team of Cleveland faith healers has achieved an astonishing rate of success in treating thousands of seriously ill people, NewsChannel5's Ted Henry reported.
Not everyone is healed, though. I once attended a healing event at my church and came forward to be healed, but it didn't happen. I didn't really expect it to, but as they say, if you don't ask, you don't get.
It wasn't any doubt on my part that interfered with a miracle, but that I have received so much from God already, and experienced much. God uses miracles to draw people closer to him, to a grateful life, and prayer. Miracles aren't rewards but incentives.
God wants to be known, and does favors for his children so that they might wish to know Him better for their own sake.
Still, it can be very disappointing when God answers someone else's prayer and not yours. posted by Mark Butterworth | 9:04 AM |
