If praying for healing of a physical ailment, are you tempted to check the physical body for evidence of progress? It’s a common temptation, and a misguided one.
All healing happens in thought first. If you want to know whether you’re making progress or not, check your thought! That’s where the action lies.
The human body is human thought objectified, so, for the human body to improve, the thought governing the body needs to improve.
It’s okay to check for progress, but check in the right place! Check your thought. And if it helps, make a list of all the ways your thought has been improving.
Are you more grateful, loving, patient, kind, in closer touch with God, feeling more of God’s presence, more aware of Truth, and mentally engaged with constructive healing spiritual truths?
Ask yourself, “How has my thought been improving because of my prayers?” Look for evidence of improvement. Find it. Rejoice over it.
Progress should be expected in any case of healing. And progress is a right. But check for it where it really happens. In thought!
The body will follow where your thought goes like a tail follows a dog. You can count on it.
