The truth is that spiritual growth, authentic deep and profound spiritual growth happens in the alternation between positive and negative experiences. The times when it seems God is close and near and one feels emboldened in their faith also have an opposite. Since that is absolutely true, there will most definitely be times when a perceived absence of God and His silence is deafening and awakens every dormant doubt in the human heart. Yet, the growth of the spirit, mind, and emotions is best deepened under the force and pressure of such extremes.
Since everything in a human’s life is always in flux, ever-changing this becomes very good news to the suffering soul. That these extremes have a certain rhythm to them and the more mature the Jesus follower, the longer the swings can take but rest assured they will reverse.
Honestly, some of the confusion in the body of Christ on reversals and divine healing can be traced to what was happening at the time when things reversed. Let me say it another way, some have tried to create automatic systems for miraculous breakthroughs because someone close to them got one as they did a particular thing or said a specific phrase. However, these acts or words in some cases have become a distraction away from the power and presence of our miracle working God.
Your reversal and personal turn-around must always be celebrated as the presence of God in your life, regardless of where, when or what prophetic act you were carrying out. Anything that breeds a system, a formula, or self-confidence is probably the work of the enemy to distract from the spiritual law of alternation at work through God’s intentional activity.
God by His very nature is the healer, is kind but very intentional with His special children. Anyone that thinks the spiritual life is a simple and painless proceeding to the glory of God has a limited understanding of spiritual things.
If having faith is easy for you I’m concerned that you might have committed your life to vocabulary words that soothe the mind and sound good. Sometimes just new vocabulary words give one the inner sensations of control and spiritual confidence but in reality, have not given birth to the beginning of wisdom which is the fear of the Lord.
Reversals in your life are likely because God is good and won’t leave us in the state we are currently. But in the extreme outer regions of pain and doubt and suffering and struggle lies the power of God preparing the human heart to receive and be wowed by the Glory of God!
