This is a question commonly asked in Christian circles. People want to know God’s will for their life. God’s will for people around them. This question specifically comes up if someone is battling sickness or disease.
Questions will arise such as “Did God give me this disease to teach me something?” Or “Why haven’t I been healed if it is God’s will for me to be healed?”
First, let me address the question of “Did God give you this sickness or disease to teach you something?” I can answer this definitively and the answer is no. He is a loving Father who wants nothing but the best for you. John 10:10 also tells us that the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, not God. So you can be sure where that sickness came from. The enemy.
As for God’s will in the Bible as it comes to healing, it is for you to be COMPLETELY HEALED.
9 “Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.[a]
10 Your kingdom come,
your will be done,[b]
on earth as it is in heaven.
God’s will is heaven on Earth. Period.
There is no sickness in heaven so it can’t be on Earth. No cancer, no tumors, no pain, so there shouldn’t be any here on Earth. THAT is the standard we hold to.
So Jason, why are people still sick when we pray? I don’t have an answer to that question but I do know the standard set before us and I won’t justify it or lower it for anything. I’ll keep praying until I see that sickness gone in Jesus name.
And I pray you will too. I know it’s hard. It can be exhausting, depressing and so much more. But I believe Jesus loves our faith and we will be rewarded for it someday. And that sickness will be gone as well.
If you’d like me to pray for you, shoot me a DM or an email. I’d love to believe alongside you.
Jesus, grow our faith!
