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!


The Living Word

For there are three that bear record in heaven,
the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:
and these three are one. - 1John 5:7

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God . . . . And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us . . . . - John 1:1, 14

          How can I make Jesus Lord of my life?
          Jesus is the Living Word. And God has given us the written Word
          to unveil the Living Word to us.
          Give the Word of God - primarily the New Testament - first place
          in your life. By doing so, you are putting Jesus first!
          Let the Word of God govern your life. Let this Word be the Lord
          of you life. Let the Word dominate you. By doing so, you are really
          allowing Jesus to lord it over you - because Jesus and His Word
          are One.
          We are living in an age when we need to get serious about   
          spiritual matters, and we need to learn what the Bible has to say
          about love, life, home, marriage, and children.
          Let the Word of God be your guide in life. When you do, you are
          making Jesus the Lord of your life. Then His written Word becomes
          the Lord of you life.
