God created the human body, and it is a marvelous creation. It was created to be strong and healthy at all times. Then why does it so oftentimes get sick? From the time that Adam and Eve willing sinned against God, the World and everything within it fell. And it's at this time of the original sin that corruption came into the world and into the physical body as well.
And because of the fall, God designed a plan of redemption that would purchase back all that had been corrupted and lost, including divine healing for us. Whether it be spiritual, mental or emotional, or physical healing—Jesus paid the price, once and for all. And nowhere in Scripture will we find that He removed from His blood covenant His healing power for us today. Nor will we find an amendment to what was done at the whipping post to heal all that will believe in it.
But [in fact] He has borne our griefs,
And He has carried our sorrows and pains;
Yet we [ignorantly] assumed that He was stricken,
Struck down by God and degraded and humiliated [by Him].
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing];
The punishment [required] for our well-being fell on Him,
And by His stripes (wounds) we are healed (Isa. 53:4-5, AMP).
To propose that supernatural healing is not for today is blasphemous against the blood of Jesus shed at the whipping post to purchase all healing for us. To suggest that God put sickness and disease upon your body for any reason whatsoever goes against the Word of God that declares "By His stripes we are healed". And to say that He put this illness upon your body for a good reason is a works mentality and you lack a true understanding of grace. To declare that God chose not to heal you or your loved one is to call God a liar. It not only declares war against all that Jesus did for us at the whipping post, but it implies that God and His Word are not to be trusted when He ensures us that "God is not a man, that He should lie." (See Num. 23:19a). And that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever" (See Heb. 13:8).
Why then does your healing take time to manifest? Or why does it not manifest at all? According to Jesus' words, "Your faith makes you whole" (see Luke 17:19). Faith in what? Faith in the redemptive blood of Jesus to heal.
"Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction" (Mark 5:34).
"Then He said to him, 'Rise, go your way. Your faith has made you well'" (Luke 17:19).
Instead of blaming God for not completing His promise to heal, it's time to take a good hard look in the mirror of God's Word and speak the truth so that you and others can be free from the bondage of sickness and disease.
Be honest with yourself and with others: Your faith is not, or was not, strong enough to trust God for your healing. And then move forward, without condemnation, and develop your faith to believe for your healing. Remember, it is your faith that heals and makes you whole.
