Jesus also said, “The Kingdom of God is like a farmer who scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, while he’s asleep or awake, the seed sprouts and grows, but he does not understand how it happens. The earth produces the crops on its own. First a leaf blade pushes through, then the heads of wheat are formed, and finally the grain ripens. (Mark 4:26–28, NLT)
First the blade, then the head, and then the full grain in the head of wheat.
Just as a seed takes time to sprout and grow, it may take some time before the healing you are trusting God for manifests fully. And just as a new farmer may see a thirty or sixtyfold yield before he sees a hundredfold yield, it may take some time before you experience 100 percent wholeness.
My friend, don’t say, “Why is my healing taking so long?” and give up. Press on toward the hundredfold. As you get 30 percent better, trust God for the 60 percent, and then the 100 percent. Know that God is a God of His Word, and His Word proclaims that you have been healed by Jesus’ stripes (1 Peter 2:24)!
