The title says it all, really. It really is that simple, God is always out to bring healing and restoration to mind, body and soul. He never intended for us to live with sickness or pain in our body, yet the world wants to tell us otherwise, and to tell us we just have to put up with it. Even for many Christians, they hold the view that God dishes sickness out to teach them a lesson. If God is a good God who wants good things for His children (Matt 7:9-11), then why would He want to strike us with a sickness that prevents us from having an abundant life? It’s always God’s will to heal.
And yet we live in a tension of it being kingdom here on earth yet not fully, and so we are faced with sickness, we are faced with pain. I hate sickness and pain. And so does God, which is why it’s always His will to heal.
On Sunday I got to talk at a church and lead a healing service, and God, in His faithfulness, came with power. There were a number of people healed, from an old lady with sore neck and shoulder pain, to a teenage girl suffering from severe back pain. Both left that service pain free. Because it’s always God’s will to heal.
Well, you may ask, if it is God’s will to heal, why am I not yet healed? My answer to that is… I don’t know. I don’t know why we see so many healings break out and yet some are left with pain. In my own body I still am waiting for pain and sickness to leave, but until it does, and even once it has left, I will not stop trusting God that He is our healer. I refuse to take offense at God for healing the person I pray for and yet not healing me. God is not striking me with sickness to teach me a lesson. Sickness does not come from Him. As each day passes, I get one day closer to receiving my healing. I will focus solely on what God is doing.
If you have sickness or pain in your body, just put your hand on the area that hurts, and speak to the pain, command it to leave in Jesus’ name. Remember, as it says in the book of James, “the prayer of the righteous person is powerful and effective.” You are righteous because God calls you righteous, therefore it is impossible for you to pray and have nothing happen, whether you receive healing instantly or it is the beginning of the process, all you need to do is to remember that when you pray, something happens!
