This book has been such an eye-opener for me. Jesus' example of healing that was shared in the book from John 5 was the foundation of this book for me; Jesus made sure that the sick man wanted to be healed before He healed him. One of the other important things I learned is that when we decide to try to help other people heal before we have healed it produces a focus on others that is unhealthy, but God might still give you a plan to serve in smaller ways such as putting up posters for a prayer meeting, or working at a check-in desk. I also liked the example that oftentimes God will use the weakest individual and group to complete something very important like He did with Gideon and his tribe Manasseh in Judges 6; God does things such as that so it will show how great His power is and so He can be given all the glory.
I took my time reading this book because the topics seemed important but I wasn’t able to read it slow enough to complete the workbook exercises because of a deadline I had to finish the book. I hope to get to use this book more fully in a group one day and complete the workbook, but in the meantime I am going to start the challenge at the end of the chapter and trust there will be good results because the Lord has already started me on a new path of healing in my life.
