I am... Healed| Week 2: BODY
GOD HEALS YOUR BODY
As God continues to deal with healing your heart, He also focuses on healing the maladies of your body. Both are connected to each other and sometimes when one is sick the other will feel the effects.
These illnesses are the effect of humanities sin and in no way do they occur as a result of anyone’s specific sin. This is NOT anyone’s punishment, nor is God angry with anyone dealing with any sort of illness. In truth, God can use an illness to prove His mercy by healing it, or show His empathy by sending some of us who have gone through a difficult illness to bring someone hope.
God CAN heal ALL physical maladies, yet He honors you by using your circumstance to highlight His glory. This is the way he teaches you to have joy through all situations and not just the positive ones. God wants and will heal everyone. It was never His plan that any human should suffer through physical and mental anguish.
If You ask for healing and you receive it right away, be thankful that God has shown you mercy by healing you. If God does not miraculously heal instantly, thank God for the overlooked miracles that our bodies often repair and restore themselves, that God can work through doctors and medicine and if we are not healed on Earth, we have a guarantee of complete healing when you get to heaven.
