If you plan a road trip, you get in your car and start driving until you get to your desired destination. There may be events along the way that interrupt the smooth flow of your trip, like detours, construction delays, bad weather, wrong turns, slow traffic, or a flat tire that needs to be fixed. But none of these occurrences are going to stop you from continuing to drive. If it is a worthy trip, you will persevere until you arrive at your desired location.
The same rule applies to prayer for healing. When a problem hits, finding our way out of the suffering might feel like taking a road trip. The going might not be all easy and smooth as hoped for. There may be moments of frustration, despair and discouragement, but if we keep the desired destination in clear view we will not be deterred.
As a child of God, we have a divine right to health, harmony and peace in our lives, and this is a demonstrable truth. It’s a “goal,” or “destination,” that we pray to realize. It’s important that we don’t give up prematurely and settle for less.
Keep driving! Don’t give up. Don’t turnaround and go back to old ways of thinking that need to be left behind.
Stick to God’s plan until you realize freedom.
Stick to it and do it!
