I have been reading an e-book: “The Risk Factor” by Kevin and Chad Dedmon (father and son authors) forward by Pastor Bill Johnson and Missionary Heidi Baker.
 
 
  Dedmon, Kevin; Dedmon, Chad (2011-12-20). The Risk Factor: Crossing the Chicken Line Into Your Supernatural Destiny. Kindle Edition.

Their exciting testimonies encourage Christians to believe the Bible when Jesus said:  Mark 16:17-18b And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18b  they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Side note:  Redding, California, Bethel Church has become a place where many people are healed of cancer and many other health problems after receiving prayer.  Jesus is the healer and he still heals today !!

What God does in Redding California - - He can do with you when you take a risk to step out and pray for those in need.

Often we hesitate to reach out because of FEAR - what will people think of me?  Remember they thought Jesus was out of his mind too!  And the 120 were accused of being drunk ! 
 
According to Second Corinthians 10: 5, we need to learn how to take every thought captive under the obedience of Christ, because the spirit of unbelief can speak in the form of our personal thoughts. For example, the thought could sound something like this, What if this doesn’t work, or what if this person doesn’t get healed when I pray? These thoughts arise from the fear that we will fail if we try and also from the fear of people.

That is where the risk comes in – just take the risk and leave the result up to God.

  1. Hazel, your post has really inspired me. I have a friend living in Redding, CA and I am originally from California. I can hardly wait to ask her if she has heard about people being healed of cancer in her area. We have three families severely afflicted with cancer. One is in Hospice care at home which makes me very sad. He and his wife have been used mightily by God. They are such strong and courageous warriors for the Lord. I think I will forward this post onto her. Thank you for sharing this.
    Blessings to you,
    Janis
