Philippians 2:13 "For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure."
Healing begins in your spirit. Even physical healing for your body begins in your spirit. God doesn't start on the outside and work to the inside. No, He starts on the inside and works to the outside.
So don't look on the outside for physical healing. Look on the inside because that's where He'll begin working. And if you will look on the inside--if you will yield to that something on the inside of you and not pay so much attention to your outward symptoms--you'll eventually look around for those symptoms and find that they're gone.
Once when I had some awful pain in my chest, I started laughing in my spirit. It bubbled up and started rolling out of my mouth. I was laughing in the face of death.
The devil said, "What are you laughing at?"
I said, "I'm laughing at you. Because, you see, you're going to have to leave. I'm not going to die.
God's not through with me. I want you to know that." And the devil left. I learned this from brother Kenneth Hagin.
The Lord always begins working on the inside. You can know things on the inside that you don't see on the outside. You can know things in your spirit that your head can't comprehend. But because you know it in your spirit and believe it, you begin to say it. And because you say it, it will surely come to pass. If you are trying to get something from heaven and have not received it yet, it might just be that you need to spend more time praying in the spirit. That is the way it works for me. Quoting the word and praying in the spirit
Confession: It is God who is at work within me, both to will and to do of His good pleasure. It is His will that I walk in health and be well. And He is working in my spirit, soul, and body.
