Imagine with me for a moment that your child is sick and suffering; would you not as a parent, be willing to take your child's sickness on yourself in order for him to be well? That's exactly what God did Two-thousand years ago - He took all of your sicknesses through Jesus His Son and yet many still seem to believe that it's God's will for his children to suffer with ill health.
If you say that you want your child be healthy yet God is not willing that His children live in perfect health then you are in essence implying that you are more loving and kind than your Father in Heaven.
Jesus said in Matthew 7:11,
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Furthermore Jesus said in Matthew 6:10,
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in heaven.
Jesus prayed that God's will would be done in earth even as it is done in heaven. Here's a question: Are there any sick, crippled, deaf or blind in heaven? If God's will is done on earth as it is in heaven then it must not be God's will for you to be sick on this earth otherwise Jesus would not have prayed in this manner.
Dear believer healing of the body is only one facet of this beautiful diamond of salvation; I would encourage you to avail yourself of all that belongs to you in Christ and walk in divine health so that you might be a living testimony of His work and His power in you.
