"Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored, and you shall be clean. But Naaman was angry" (2 Kings 5:10-11 AMP).
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.
– Isaiah 1:19
A healthy body. Enough money to pay all your bills and extra to invest in the work of the gospel. A godly marriage and happy, healthy children. Peace of mind. God has prepared a banquet full of blessings for you.
But those blessings are not just going to fall in your lap. You must be willing as well as obedient if you're going to eat the best from God's table.
So, be willing!

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Divine healing, though it is manifested in the physical, is spiritual. It is not mental, as Christian Science and other metaphysical teachers claim. Now don't misunderstand me. People get some results through mental science. The mind does, to a great extent, control the body, and a person could get some results that way.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Those with this first attitude believe that healing is not for us today. They believe that healing is a miracle, and that miracles do not belong to us today.
I think this first attitude can easily be shown to be erroneous by the simple definition of a miracle. According to the dictionary, a miracle is an act or happening in the material or physical sphere that apparently departs from the laws of nature or goes beyond what is concerning these laws.

And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us.
If you stopped reading this story at verse 27, you could hold up the two blind men as a perfect example of people who prayed but did not receive an answer.
And verse 28 says, "And when he [Jesus] was come into the house, the blind men came to him...." Even though the blind men were in the Presence of Jesus, they were still blind. That illustrates this fact: Merely coming into the Presence of God will not save or heal you.
