Q & A with Judith

The Lord healed my knee pain, but sometimes it comes back. Why do we have to keep claiming healing? Is there a way to pray better?

Healing is often a process. We know the mind holds memories, but the body also holds traumatic memories at the cellular level. This is called body memory. Pray for your body to be under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. It may be that you need additional inner healing.

I have seen healings completely reversed. On one occasion, we took a young woman who was completely blind to a Kathryn Kuhlman healing meeting. This girl’s sight was totally restored!  

The girl that was healed lived in Bethany outside Jerusalem. When she told her parents that Jesus healed her, they rejected her, cast her out of their home, and started planning her funeral as if she was dead to them. Five days later she was completely blind again. She was then allowed to go back to her home. Why was it reversed? Did she unconsciously choose to be blind so she could go home and back to her family? 

I can’t say for sure, but there is something in us that wants to go back to the familiar. I have seen people set free and then choose to go back to the situation. We are uncomfortable with newness and change. Some people like the attention and love they receive when they are sickly.

Could it be demonic? Yes, the enemy can try to bring something back upon us to reverse emotional or physical healing. But it is not always demonic.

As in all things, this calls for discernment and more prayer. Ask the Holy Spirit, “Why is the pain coming back? Is there something else that is blocking permanent healing from happening?”
