God’s Attitude Toward Sickness
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. — JAMES 1:17
What is God’s attitude toward sickness and disease? We know what His attitude is toward sin. We’ve heard that preached all our lives. But have we ever heard someone talk about what God thinks about sickness? What’s His attitude toward sickness and disease? Well, the Word of God is clear on that subject. God looks upon disease as He looks upon sin; it is the work of Satan in the life of His creation, man.
Christ came to reveal the Father God, to make known His attitude, toward man. By carefully following the life of Christ, we can learn God’s attitude toward sickness. Christ was the will of God the Father. He said, “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38). Christ’s ministry from the beginning to the end was a twofold ministry: He brought peace to the spirits and souls of men, and He brought healing to their bodies.
Healing had a major place in the ministry of Jesus. Some people say that healing was just a side issue with Jesus and the apostles. Well, if it was, Jesus spent a great deal of His time on a side issue. If you read the four Gospels, you’ll see that Jesus spent more time teaching and healing the sick than He did anything else.
Confession: Jesus was the will of God in action on the earth. Jesus went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the devil. So I know that it is God’s will to heal me.
