GOD’S ATTITUDE TO SICKNESS

KEY SCRIPTURE: John 9:1 KJV” And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.”

From our key scripture, the Lord passed by and He saw a man born blind. Why did the scriptures emphasise Jesus, giving His attention to the man suffering from a physical deformity? There were so many observable things on the path of Jesus, yet, the scriptures referred to His reaction to the sick man. There could have been children playing, nearby, or people running to get a glimpse of Him, yet none of these things attracted his attention more than the man born blind.

Jesus is the eternal word of God. He is the will of God, in human form. Whatever He did was what the

Father wanted to be done. John 8:29 KJV ‘And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.” He said He always does what pleases the Father. Diseases were conditions the Lord hated. Most of the time, He was ready to help the sick people, by healing them.

 Dear one, you would have to settle it firmly in your heart that, God does not want you sick. He wants you well.

Throughout the scriptures, the Lord Jesus went out of His way to heal a number of people who were sick. The following were some of the instances:

1.The woman who had the spirit of infirmity for eighteen years. Luke 13: 11-17.

2. The invalid man, who laid at the pool of Bethesda for 38 years. John 5:1-15

3. The man born blind in John 9:1-7

4 . The man with the withered hand, He healed on the sabbath day. Mark 3:1-5

5. Acts 10:38 He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil.

From this scripture, we see sickness as an oppression of the devil but Jesus went round to stop Satan from oppressing men.

In all the above instances the Lord either called the victims to His side or went to them and healed them. In the case of the woman whom He described as, being bound by  Satan, for eighteen years, He expressed His great dislike against the Pharisees, who were opposed to her healing.

Again, in the case of the man with the withered hand, He asked the scribes and the Pharisees, whether it was right to do good on the sabbath day or not? He looked around with anger and was grieved for the hardness of their heart for resisting the healing or saving of the sick. Remember, He is the same yesterday, today, and forever Heb 13:8, and is against Satan or devils molesting your body.

 Call upon Him in faith and you would not be disappointed. Rom 10:13 KJV” For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

 PRAYER

I thank you heavenly father for your love and provisions for my good health. I thank you that the Lord Jesus always healed every sick man who came to Him. I pray in His name and rebuke every spirit of infirmity and declare my healing right now in Jesus’ mighty name. Thank you Lord for healing me.

THOUGHT: GOD IS GLORIFIED WHEN OUR BODIES ARE STRONG.
