Mary sat anxiously in the waiting room, her mind racing with a million questions. “God, I know you can heal me, but is it your will?”

She had prayed countless times, but the doubt lingered. Mary’s story echoes the unspoken cries of millions worldwide who wonder about God’s will, especially concerning healing.

As Jesus walked the earth, a man “full of leprosy” approached Him with a similar plea:

“Lord, if You will, You can make me clean.”

Luke 5:12 (ESV)

Jesus’ response not only healed the man’s body but unveiled a profound truth about the Father’s heart:

“I will; be clean.”

Luke 5:13 (ESV)

In this blog post, we’ll explore biblical insights to help you discern God’s will, dispel common misconceptions, and find the confidence to embrace His promises – including divine healing.

God’s Word Reveals His Will

What Does The Bible Say About The Law Of Attraction

The Bible is our final authority for knowing God’s will. As the Apostle Paul reasoned with listeners “out of the Scriptures” (Acts 17:2), we too must anchor our understanding in the unchanging truth of God’s Word.

Jesus’ words and actions revealed the unchanging will of God (Luke 5:12-13). When faced with human suffering, He didn’t respond with uncertainty or platitudes – He healed “every disease and sickness” (Matthew 9:35).

His compassionate ministry mirrored the heart of the Father, whose words are:

…life to those who find them and healing to all their flesh.”

Proverbs 4:22 (ESV)

Healing is God’s Will for All

Healing Is Gods Will For All

Jesus healed everyone who came to Him, demonstrating His unwavering desire to heal.

Out of the 19 recorded individual healings, the Bible explicitly mentions the person’s faith as a key factor in 10 instances (e.g., Matthew 9:27-30, Mark 9:23-24).

Significantly, God’s Word doesn’t state, “I want” regarding healing but consistently proclaims, “I will” (Luke 5:13).

This divine declaration leaves no room for ambiguity – healing is God’s will for all who believe.

Reasons Why Christians Stay Sick

Reasons Why Christians Stay Sick

While God’s heart for healing is clear, many believers struggle with sickness for three main reasons:

  • Not knowing healing is God’s will and paid for by Christ: Millions still question whether healing is always God’s desire, unaware that Jesus has already purchased our wholeness through His sacrifice (Isaiah 53:5).
  • Not actively receiving healing by faith: God’s provision must be received by faith. Just as salvation requires belief (Ephesians 2:8-9), healing necessitates actively appropriating what Christ has accomplished (Mark 11:24).
  • Not obeying God and living in His perfect will: Straying from God’s perfect plan can lead us down roads filled with consequences we were never meant to experience (Romans 12:2).

The Power of Your Faith

The Power Of Your Faith

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus emphasized faith as the requirement for healing.

“…let it be done for you as you have believed.

Matthew 8:13 (ESV)

“…your faith has made you well…”

Mark 5:34 (ESV)

These words reveal a profound truth – our faith unlocks the power of God in our lives.

To build your faith, immerse yourself in God’s Word. As you hear and receive His promises, your confidence in His will for your healing will grow (Romans 10:17).

Remember, faith begins where the will of God is known (Romans 12:2).
