Sickness and physical maladies that people experience today are not from God. Nowhere in the Gospels do we see Jesus ever putting sickness or physical injury onto someone to teach them something, or for any other reason. Yet there are many times the Gospels record where Jesus healed everyone present. Jesus told us we have an enemy who comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Jesus contrasted this with His own purpose, which is to give us an abundant overflowing life. Sickness steals life. It doesn't give it. Therefore sickness is from the enemy, not from God. Saying that God intended for our physical suffering makes Christ into an abusive husband who inflicts pain on His bride. Embracing sickness is submitting to the works of the enemy while it also causes people to resist God, who wants them to be healthy. That's the opposite of what the Bible tells us to do. You may be suffering horribly today. Be encouraged! That suffering is not God's will for your life. Your road to a full and total recovery starts with changing your belief in this area. Reject the lie that says God did this horrible thing to you. Learn the truth of what Jesus already accomplished for you on the cross and through His resurrection. Then you will start walking towards that truly abundant life Jesus promised for you.
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be healthy, even as your soul prospers. — 3 John 1:2 (WEB)
