Healing: God's Will

For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will,
but the will of him that sent me. - John 6:38

Healing the sick is God's Will.
Yet Christians who need healing have said to me, "Maybe God put this sickness on me for some purpose."
Did Jesus ever put sickness on anybody? When people came to Jesus for healing, did He ever turn even one away, saying, "No, it's not my will. Just suffer a little longer. Wait until your piety gets deepened enough?"
No! Not once!
Do you want to know what God is like? Look at Jesus. Do you want to see God at work? Look at Jesus! Did Jesus go about making people sick? No! He went about doing good and healing. (Acts 10:38). Do you want to know the will of God? Look at Jesus. Jesus is the will of God in action.
We can pray for healing with great confidence - knowing it is the will of God!

Confession: When I pray concerning healing, I know that I pray according to God's will. It is God's will that we have what Jesus bought for us. Therefore, I am confident that God hears me. And since I know that God hears me, I know that I have the petition I desire of Him. And I thank Him for it!
