You may have someone lay hands on you and get your healing that way, but let me tell you the truth about that. It won't last unless you get the word for yourself afterwards and put it in your heart and your mouth. I've seen several people get healed this way and then lose it because they continued on in their everyday life like they always had. They didn't get in the Word and make the necessary changes and they lost their healing. Yes…you can lose your healing. You need to know how to keep it once you get it. Getting the Word for yourself is the best way to receive healing. If you get it this way, then you will most likely keep it if you continue in it.
So find the scriptures that cover what you need from God and press in to that Word. What do I mean by "pressing in to the Word"? Well…you can't just read the healing scriptures once in the morning then go all day long and never give it another thought till the next day. You won't get healed on the word doing that. You have to go after it all day long. Every time you have a few minutes go read those scriptures and say them out loud to where you can hear yourself say them. Think about them every time you have a few free minutes if you work at a job all day. When you get home that night, read them out loud again before you go to bed. Keep right at it
continually is pressing in.
Don't let distractions get you so involved with things in the world that you forget about the Word that will bring you what you need from God. This is the one thing, I believe that steals from us spiritually more than anything else. There are legitimate things that we all have to take care of, but we need to simplify our lives as much as possible from unnecessary things if we are to receive our healing or anything else from God. We have to give the Word of God our undivided attention. Read Proverbs 4: 20-23.
Have you ever seen someone out running early in the morning in the rain and it's cold? That person has committed to do this for some reason. Mabe they want to lose weight or run a marathon. They will work for that no matter what the conditions are. This is the kind of commitment you and I must make to receive what we want and need from God. It takes commitment and pressing in to the Word of God to make that happpen. We can't be lazy and just do this when we feel like it or when it's convenient. We have to make time and do it consistently every day until healing comes.
Don't worry about other things too much. They will be taken care of as you seek God and his Word. It says in Matthew 6:33; But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. If you'll put God first and his Word and do what is right, then all these things will be added unto you. Added, not taken away. Take care of what you have to and let the rest go and everything else will work out right. Press in to the Word of God and get your healing, you'll be so glad you did.
