One of the toughest questions I’ve had to face is “When does God heal and when does He not heal?”. It is tough because I believe with all my heart that it is His primary will to heal but that sometimes because of us, His secondary will is what happens, and sometimes neither option occurs and what happens is actually because of our agreement with the devils’ purposes. I’m not talking about God having plan A or plan B, I’m talking about Him working within the framework that He GAVE us our free will and He refuses to take it back. He so refused to take it back that He sent His son to DIE. Quite a cost for God who really could do anything…

So what do we do when the healing we are contending for hides? Perhaps, make good choices? I’ve struggled through wondering if I’m being faithless to ‘take matters into my own hands’ but now I see it as a matter of stewardship.

I’ve struggled through wondering if I’m being faithless to ‘take matters into my own hands’ but my lens has been replaced  to see the consequence of choice.  Have you ever wondered why some famous faith healers died from health issues?  I’m sure it wasn’t a matter of faith.  How about a matter of choice though?  I couldn’t tell you for sure, but it would make more sense to me that how their bodies were stewarded with food might have something to do with it.  If we choose to eat harmful substances, is it truly God’s responsibility to heal us knowing that we will continue to make the same choices over and over?  I don’t know for sure because He certainly does intervene in lives who return to old habits, but the fruit of the old habits doesn’t change does it?  One healing, or lifetime responsibility…hmmm, what would I do if I was training my child?

God GAVE us DOMINION over the earth.  Consequently, I have confidence that He wants us to exercise dominion over our own bodies first. The most difficult lesson I’ve learned in the last 2 years is to partner with God in my will and that I must take action. He has called us each to Him and to fulfill assignments while we partner with Him, but partnership requires choice and follow through. He has promised to provide what we need, and we need the faith to believe that He will provide while we obey. We can not be sitting and waiting for an intervention in order to do what He has given us the resources to do on earth for ourselves and others. Grow your faith, but grow while taking action! God will provide and guide when you say YES to the journey.  I want to grow my faith and my maturity simultaneously!  In my mind it doesn’t get better than this; lifetime responsibility AND healings along the way!!
