Did you know that God never made anyone sick? He is against sickness! In no place in the Bible will you ever find that Jesus was for sickness. He was against it. That means God doesn’t go around giving people cancer or other terrible diseases. He doesn’t go around seeking to hurt people. Everything that is good is from God. Everything that is bad is from the devil. And every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows (James 1:17 NIV).

I respect doctors, and one reason is that they have grasped this eternal truth and are against sickness and for health. Consciously or unconsciously, they have a pretty good theology of healing. Sometimes I wish we Christians had such a good theology of healing. Then we might be less inclined to argue about whether it’s God’s will to heal or not. We would approach people who have hurts and ills with Christ’s own positive attitude of wholeness for them.

I speak out of experience when I make that statement, for I know that healing begins in this life. You have this wonderful claim upon the very real promise of God, which is intended personally for you and your loved ones in the NOW. God is against sickness in your body, and He is for your healing. Believe that, and reach out to Him with your faith to receive the healing you need today!
