I am a Continuationist. I pray to God for his intervention in the daily and mundane. If He never moves in a tangible spiritual way post-salvation, I will live. But, I thank God that Jesus is moved by the feelings of my infirmity. I believe that God is not cruel...that He would simply feel my pain and weakness and does nothing about it. I look to God for healing. I look to God for wisdom, discernment, and for my future.
I believe that God is very involved in my life. I am dependent on His presence. This past year, a mom in our church had a baby born 2 weeks before the age of viability. God did a miracle in that baby. He was at church Sunday, a big healthy boy. I believe that was the continuing work of the Holy Spirit. That was awesome.
With that said, I know that we will not always be healed. The Bible shares that we all have an appointment with death. Still, I confess as a continuationist, I do not understand how some people are not healed when it just feels like they should be. My friend, Dave Crowley is going through a tough journey. Still I trust God. Keep praying for my friend. Thanks for taking a look at my theology as I actively work it out in Word and in experience.
