When is it over?

I have always struggled with some questions in my saved life. For example,

• If we prayed to God to heal cancer, why should we stop when someone dies, why shouldn’t we still call Him with whom all things are possible and remind Him that it is never too late for Him? Isn’t He the same God of resurrection? Or must we give resurrection a more eschatological confine than we allow expectations of restoration for physical life—now? Didn’t Christ show Martha that there is a version of resurrection that we can experience with Him in our contemporary life? (Jhn. 11:25).

• At least we pray for each person who falls sick amongst us, some get healed, some don’t. Why can’t we have the same attitude, that is, praying for each dead person to rise and wait to see some rising and others staying dead?

• If we can pray to God to heal whether it is a cold or cancer why shouldn’t we pray with the same gusto that God raise the dead? Isn’t it as easy for Him to heal cold and cancer as it is for Him to raise the dead?

• Why should we be enthusiastic praying against heart problems, cancer, angina, name them but think it is ‘normal’ to have people among us who are physically impeded—the blind; the deaf; the crippled; the lame, name them? We ‘accept’ these infirmities when Christ for whom we are the ambassadors never shied away from anything?

Well the above questions are not aimed at condemning anyone. They are pointers to spiritual timidity. May God help us. Let us inspire ourselves to stop at nothing. The problem is only if we "accept" our timidity and settle in it.
