“But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.”
Perhaps you have marveled at God’s instantaneous healing miracles. Perhaps you believed that He would do the same for you. But now, when you see
your own healing taking so long to manifest, you are tempted to give up.
My friend, when the manifestation does not come instantaneously, we are not to be discouraged because Jesus let us in on a secret when He shared
the parable of the sower. (Mark 4:3–20)
The parable of the sower teaches us that once we receive God’s Word into our hearts regarding our situation, God’s blessings will manifest in
progression. When we receive our thirtyfold manifestation, it means that 70 per cent of that condition is still there. But some of us give up at thirtyfold
because we still feel more pain than relief.
We need to realize that we are thirtyfold better than before, and our sixtyfold is coming! Once we receive our sixtyfold manifestation, there is still 40
per cent that is not well. But we are more healed than sick now, and we only need to get ready for the hundredfold manifestation!
For years, I had a skin condition. Medication did not help and, finally, after I had done everything I knew to do, I decided to take the Holy Communion
and pray about it. I said, “Father, I have an infirmity. I don’t know what is hindering the physical manifestation of this healing. Holy Spirit, I am trusting
You to make perfect intercession regarding the manifestation of my healing.”
That was how I prayed for my skin condition. Did I look into the mirror to see if it had left? Of course I did! I am like anyone else. But did I stop praying?
No, I kept on praying until one day, I heard a voice within me say, “Look at your body.” When I looked into the mirror, the skin condition was completely
gone! I was totally healed, but the manifestation of the healing was gradual.
Today, if you have seen only a thirtyfold increase in your situation, don’t give up. The sixtyfold, then hundredfold increases are on their way to you!
