Dealing with sickness
Do NOT let the devil convince you that God placed an illness on you or let you have an illness so He can use it for good. The Lord may use situations for good; however, what you need to know is… Jesus healed all who came to Him (Matthew 12:15; Luke 4:40; John 14:12; Mark 6:56). If God was going around using illness to draw people close to Him, then how’s come Jesus healed ALL of them? God desires that you are healed, and by faith, you will receive the promise Jesus Christ made to you and on your behalf since He is the High Priest! (Psalms 103:2-6 and Hebrews 2:9).Endnote: If people are concerned with why Paul had a thorn in his flesh, it was because he saw the third heaven — How many people have had this happen? Very few and it was around the time of Jesus’ First Advent.
I simply do not accept anyone who says that God is using sickness to draw people close to Him. God just draws people, regardless of sickness or not – adverse use of sin or not much sin – and so many other contrasting viewpoints. Put simply, the Bible does not reveal God uses sickness for His Purposes, because He allowed Jesus to willingly bear all of it so that we His People did not ever have to. If you are sick, then God wants you healed, so come to the fountain and receive a fresh outpouring! Praise the Lord! (P.S. This is something most pastors and spiritual leaders will not mention, because like doctors, they want you to keep coming back to their “practice.” I don’t want to play church. I want serious things happening to serious believers, and start experiencing Heaven now. Forget the infirmity… I’d rather have peace, joy, righteousness, and love in the Holy Ghost forever and ever. Amen!)
