    • Lack of teaching
    • Unbelief
    • Lack of faith
    • Lack of power
    • Personal unconfessed sin
    • Refusal to be made whole
    • Lack of decision and desire
    • Problems with the request
    • Lack of perseverance
    • Disobedience in the healing process
    • Improperly discerning Christ’s Body
    • The evil spirit is not cast out

Why don’t more people get healed? Why are some healed while others are not? Why are sometimes very shallow and worldly Christians healed while more sincere and dedicated people have not yet received healing?

These are some of the questions you will face when you begin to minister healing and deliverance. This lesson concerns variables that affect healing. A “variable” is a factor that causes variations or different results.

God has promised healing in His Word. We must remember, however, that every promise of God is conditional on the response of man. This is why it is important to understand the variables that affect healing.
