The Lord answered, “If you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘May you be uprooted and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you! (Luke 17:6 NLT)


When you don’t see God as your source and you don’t see Him as your healer, as far as He’s concerned, you’re in unbelief. You can go to the doctor and the doctor can work with you, but who do you place your trust in? Your trust should be in God, not the physician. 

It’s the same with a job. Somebody says, “Well, I’m going to live by faith and quit my job.” But, if you can’t live by faith with a job, how are you going to quit your job and live by faith? Living by faith doesn’t mean you quit your job; it means you don’t see the job as your source.

You can go to the hospital; you can go to the doctor, just don’t see them as your source. They aren’t the source. That’s why God’s raising up Holy Ghost doctors. A Holy Ghost doctor can listen to God, and God will tell him, “See, right here is the problem.”

Don’t be ashamed or afraid of what some people may think or say, “Well, I don’t know, I feel condemned going to the doctor. I don’t want any of the church folks to see me.” There’s been some unbalanced teaching on this. If you go to the hospital or take medication, that doesn’t mean you’re in unbelief. Do what you need to do. When you get full of faith…when you’re fully persuaded, you won’t even have to deal with it. You won’t have to be struggling, “I wonder, should I go or not.” No, it won’t even cross your mind. 


Dear God, My trust is in you. You area my Source, and You are my Healer. If I go to the doctor, I thank You for giving him (or her) wisdom to treaet this condition. I’m continuously in faith, any my faith is brining my healing to pass. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
