In the DIG yesterday we saw that if we wanted to see the true character of God we just had to look at the example if Jesus in the Gospels.
So, what do we see in Jesus that we can transfer onto Father God?
A leper asked Jesus if He would heal him; Jesus said he would (Matthew 8 v 3).
A centurion asked Jesus if He would go and heal his servant; Jesus said He would (Matthew 8 v 7).
Jesus went to the house of Peter and healed Peter’s mother-in-law, thus fulfilling Isaiah 53 v 5 (Matthew 8 v 14 to 17).
Some people brought a man sick of the palsy to Jesus and He healed him (Matthew 9 v 6).
We see in the Gospel of Luke Jesus healing everyone that required healing (Luke 9 v 11).
From these verses (and from many more) we can see that it was always the will of Jesus to heal people, so we can say that it is always the will of God.
From the Gospels we can see that it was never the will of Jesus to put illness and sickness on people, so we can also say that Father God will never do this either.
God never uses sickness to teach us, it is clear from Scripture that sickness and disease are works of the devil, and that Jesus came to destroy these (1 John 3 v 8).
So it is always God’s will to heal, indeed this is one of the things that He wants for us above all things.
In John’s third letter we read that God wants us to live in health and prosperity (3 John 2).
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that above all things you want me t olive in health and prosperity”.
3 John 2…..Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth
