All healing of spiritual sickness or natural sickness is of God. The healing of natural sickness is never accomplished without the power of God. Vain are the skills of the most learned physician if God is not pleased to heal; and, if He is pleased to heal, He can do so with or without the medicine or the physician.
Trials, trouble, and illnesses are a part of this flesh and this world! God has never promised His people freedom from the infirmities and afflictions of the flesh, but He has promised His sufficient grace for every trial.
“My grace is sufficient for thee.” (2nd Corinthians 12:9)
“In the world ye shall have tribulations, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
When a believer is sick, it is not “of the devil,” nor is it from “lack of faith.” As in all our experiences, “The LORD gave and the LORD taketh away; blessed be the name of the LORD,” (Job 1:21) and we can be sure that this, too, shall be for His glory and our good (Romans 8:28).
If you know and love the Lord Jesus and He is pleased to bring affliction into your life, treat it the same as you would any other trial. PRAY and seek the prayers of other believers for your deliverance. Do not seek the aid of religious healers. If a man preaches “another gospel” and “another Jesus,” he has “another spirit.” WAIT UPON THE LORD. “In EVERYTHING give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1st Thessalonians 5:18)
May God be pleased to bless you with health of body, but more important is the perfect cleansing and healing of our souls in Christ Jesus.
