Will The Healer Afflict?
Will The Healer Afflict?
Jehovah is a Healer and it is true. In the book of Exodus 15vs26, He announced Himself as The Lord the healer. If you believed in the notion that God uses sickness to teach men lessons or that being afflicted with any sort of disease can be His will for you I am telling you that, it is not true!!!
The Quran does have the story of Jonah I suppose, and I hope you know that Jonah was a disobedient prophet who refused to go and do the work of God. This prophet was suppose to go a city called Nineveh and preached but rather he headed towards another city called Joppa instead. Jonah did not get afflicted with sickness because of this, God only put him in the belly of a whale for three day so he can have a rethink. In fact, he did not fall sick after he was released. Where did you get the idea of this God of affliction?
The book of psalm 103 vs1-5 reads thus:
Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
What will God gain in chastising anyone with sickness and disease? Can you really learn in pains? If sickness and disease are the will of God for you, why do you want to get out of His will for you? Why visit the doctors? Why take medications? why pray for it to go? If truly God wanted you to be sick and ravaged by disease, in order to teach you some lessons why are you negotiating a way out? Ok, since you have been battling that sickness and disease, have you learnt the intended lessons?
Beloved, get the right knowledge of God. It is very important to have the right views of Jehovah God. The more you understand the ways of God Almighty the better for you, the easier it is for you to walk with Him. If you had a child would you prefer to hurt him badly in order to teach him or her a lesson? How would you feel as a parent watching your child suffer in pains? Jehovah is also called the Father you know and we are His children. We are not His slaves, we are not just His creation.
We are His priced possession, worth the blood of His dear Son Jesus Christ. If you knew how much Jehovah God loves you, you will understand that He can not hurt you in anyway. He loves you, God loves you so much! This is my take, the Healer will not afflict anyone let alone you! He loves you too much, He really does!!!
