Is it Really God’s Will to Heal?

Some people say it might not always be God’s will to heal,

But what sort of doctored doctrine do such words reveal?

James says a double-minded man gets nothing from the Lord.

To get results in prayer, such unbelief we can’t afford.

 

Did Jesus not say that if we’d believe and would not doubt,

We’d be able to move mountains? That’s what faith is all about.

For God gives good, not evil things, for those who do believe.

And if we know God’s will, we know we’re certain to receive.

 

Faith comes from careful hearing, meditating on God’s Word,

Not evil health reports or so-called “faith failures” we’ve heard.

To mix God’s Word with faith, we need to focus on the Lord,

Based on His promises, not strong viewpoints of the church board (bored).

 

Some people pick apart the Word to find a cause for doubt.

They argue with God’s truth. Its glorious message they cast out.

But God believes all things are possible, for He is love.

And when we lean on Him, we have His wisdom from above.

 

In Christ, His every promise is “Yes,” and in Him “Amen.”

And it’s His faith that saves us, so let’s come to Him again.

Let’s trust Him to help us defeat our unbelief and doubt.

Bless Him for His faithfulness and of His love do shout.

Author: wingandprayer

I am a writer of Biblically-based and other sorts of humor because I want to see the spirit of heaviness lifted off of people and replaced with the garment of praise as it says in Isaiah 61:3.

Throughout the years, God has inspired me with a number of ideas for fun stories based on the Bible and on Biblical characters. You can find one of my articles, “A Queen’s Eye View of Insecurity,” in the Faithwriters’ book “Mixed Blessings, Classically Inspired,” published by Breath of Fresh Air Press. Several other articles of mine, winning entries in Faithwriters contests, have been accepted for publication. Now my first super hero book is on its last leg of revisions. I look forward to sharing it with my fellow fantasy enthusiasts once it is published.

I also write healing tracts for missions and evangelism and have illustrated several books, including “How do You Hide a Dinosaur?”, “The Nail,” “The Tree,” and “The Vine,” by Peg Stormy Bradley.
