First, let us address the age old question-Is it God’s will to heal me? Yes! A Thousand times—Yes, but don’t take my word for it. Let’s look at God’s word and read it for ourselves —
“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: Yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.(Isaiah 53:5)
Our salvation with Christ was twofold. As the above passage shows, our salvation was for our deliverance from spiritual death (Hell) and sickness. One may reason that was only for those who are sick in a spiritual sense, but that is not true. Upon reading Matt 8:16-17, it refers to the passage of Isaiah and has Jesus healing the sick in a physical sense. Another point to consider is that when we die, our bodies are recreated, not healed. The Bible does not say that when we die, we are healed spiritually–that is totally unscriptural.
Having clarity on the subject of healing will put you in a better position to receive your deliverance. If you make a promise to your child, your child expects you to fulfill it. Why is it that many in the body do not see our heavenly Father in that same manner of thinking as that child? We need child-like faith because he is faithful in his promises. One of the reasons that people have a hard time believing God’s promises is because their bodies and circumstances are talking louder than God’s word.
Friends, let’s face it, we live in a fallen world. The word says that many are the afflictions of the righteous but he does not leave it there, let’s look at the rest of this wonderful passage…
Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. (Ps 34:19)
The good news is that God promises to deliver us out of all our afflictions. We need to see the end from the beginning and pray the answer, not the problem. The word has all the answers you need. In this day, let us pray the answer and not the problem. Doing this will give us peace and give us the victory that we need.
