If It Be Thy Will

Only one time was Jesus asked whether it be FATHER’S Will to heal.  A leper who had the greatest and immediate need for healing happened to be that person for not only did he have a chronic and severe disease, he was also an outcast.  In the Good News of Mark chapter one:

40 Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.”

41 Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.”

42 As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed.

In Exodus chapter 15, FATHER makes a very clear statement:

26  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have permitted upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

It is Our Loving FATHER Who does the healing.  After all, HE created and formed us thus HE has perfect knowledge of what it takes to heal and restore us.  The leper in Mark chapter 1 is a perfect example.  By FATHER’S authority and Divine Intent, Jesus healed the leper and there is no question that it is HIS will for all to be healed.

What is the problem if we are sick or plagued with a chronic disease?  I believe it is due to something we may be missing.  It could be that we are “void” of HIS Word in a certain area.  We might have allowed the cares of the world to creep in and the Word has grown dormant in us.  The world is busily bombarding us with alternatives to FATHER’s healing power.  You may have unforgiveness and/or bitterness toward someone that needs to be dealt with.  Your spiritual state can negatively impact your physiology.  Dr. Speckhart saw cancer clear up after the young woman forgave her grandmother of all the malicious words and acts over her.

FATHER was in the healing business as shown in Exodus 15.  HE kept over 3 million totally healthy in the wilderness yet we find this bold statement in Hebrews chapter 8:

6  But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

The New Covenant was and is better than the Old Covenant.  In Psalms 105 we find an example of how good the Old Covenant was concerning the children of Israel:

37  He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.

People think that you need to die from a disease but I strongly disagree.  FATHER will take you out of this current state without sickness and disease if you truly believe in HIS healing power and willingness to heal you today.  Nothing is wrong with simply having your heart stop on the appointed day you are to depart.  My friend Bill Weaver was such a man and knew that FATHER was going to do something special on his 70th birthday.  He departed in his sleep quietly without any suffering for he was healthy.

We must align ourselves with FATHER and know HIS Word in the area of healing.  We must trust and act upon HIS Word and we should expect results in the same manner as Jesus, the disciples, and all those who have since grasped the revelation that HE still heals today and has not changed in any manner.  The Beloved Disciple in 1 John chapter 5 wrote:

14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him

Are you sick, ask FATHER to heal you and thank HIM for HIS Love directed specifically to you in making you whole.  Dwell on your healing and tell your body you are healed as it tries to convince you otherwise.  It is HIS good pleasure to minister health, healing, and life to HIS sons and daughters.  There is no question that IT IS HIS WILL for you to be healed.  Stand on HIS Word and let HIS Word permeate every aspect of your being for it has more power than any sickness or disease.  It may take some time for this to occur but don’t give up.  I can attest to this process in my own life.
