How can I remove barriers to God’s power?

Question: “How can I remove the barrier that stands between my faith and the healing power of God?”

Bible Answers

In Luke 5:17-20 we have the story of four men who dug a hole through a roof to lower a paralyzed friend down to Jesus. Verse 17 says, One day Jesus was teaching … And the power of the Lord was present to heal. Verse 20 says, When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”

For years I have been impressed by Jesus’ response in verse 20, When Jesus saw their faith. It could be concluded that the only requirement for the paralyzed man’s healing was the faith of the four friends. But upon reading this account more closely, it became apparent that a second factors was present as mentioned in verse 17, the power of the Lord was present to heal.

For healing to occur, we must conclude that both faith and the power of the Lord must be present, working together. When this team is working together, no sickness can remain.  In this example, the roof was a barrier to faith being united with the power of the Lord.  They needed to remove the barrier, the roof, so that their faith could be united with the power of the God.

Any thing that stands between our faith and God’s power must be identified and removed for healing to occur. Normally the barrier is from a lack of knowledge - knowledge of His Word, knowledge of curses, knowledge of Satanic attack, unconfessed sins, and unforgiveness. When we remove the barrier, then faith and god’s power can come together and nothing can resist them.

When we have done all we can to identify any barriers and we are still not sure, we need to take it to the Lord and ask Him for His help to identify and remove any barriers.

Another example would be Peter’s explanation of a healing miracle in Acts 3:16. By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see.  


Again we see faith and the power of God through the name of Jesus providing healing.

We need to exhibit determination to remove any barrier that stands between our faith and the healing power of God so that the two may be united. Moving with force and confidence in the Word of God.
