It is Always God’s Desire to Heal and Bless His Children

This is probably one the longest title of a post you can find in here. It is also probably one of the biggest statement I have to substantiate to stand on. Even in some circles within Christianity, these are rather “grey areas” where believers do not have a common understanding and believe. Some have known to fight strongly against such. So I have some rather big shoes to fill here…

It is Always Gods Desire to Heal and Bless His Children, Be happy...!

But I see Daddy God’s heart, His heart for His children. And He wants to let us know that He loves and cares for us very much. It is not only His desire not to see anyone perish (2Peter 3:9), but it is also His desire that those who had already come to repentance should enjoy His mercy, grace and peace. And to be with us in truth and love (2John 1:3).

Throughout the Bible, there is little doubt that God can heal and bless His people. The big question is, does He wants to? Some of us have been brought up with concepts of God sitting high up in cloudy heaven on His ivory throne dishing out goodies to people who behave and who are good; and sending down sickness and punishments to those who are bad or misbehaved. Some Christians struggles with believes that restortation and deliverance can only come at the second coming of Christ. But before the “big tap opens”, there can only be so much droplets of healings and blessings trickling down, and even that is pending on the “elusive sovereign” will of God.

Or is it?

When Jesus started His ministry on earth with The Sermon on the Mount. One of the most precious revelation that was never mentioned beforehand in the entire history of Old Testament is this: The God sitting high up in the so distance heaven is also called our heavenly Father!

Our dear heavenly Father…

And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.” Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child.    Galatians 4:6-7

It is Always Gods Desire to Heal and Bless His Children, wassup?

Given that revelation in mind, now we have to ask ourselves; would we simply ignore a sick child’s plead for healing and attention? Would any of us give even a naughty kid a snake when he ask for a fish burger? Certainly not! (Luke 11:11-13) Sinful beings as we are, but we still look after our young. There is this Chinese folk saying: Even the ferocious tiger don’t eat its young cubs. Can we then ever accuse our heavenly Father for being an absentee parent or worse, a sadistic one that metes out death penalty and life poverty, labeling them as His will?

Since Jesus is the exact representation of God, by studying the life of Jesus in the Bible, we can know the real character of the One on the throne. And in all accounts, you will realise this: JESUS NEVER SAY NO TO HEALING! He never once denied anybody’s request for healing; male or female, young or old, Jews or Gentiles, sick or demon-possessed, dead or alive, Jesus healed them all!

Jesus came to give His people the abundant life, a full life, a rich and satisfying life (John10:10). It is all for God’s glory! If you meet a clean, heathy, pleasant, well-behaved child, you will give full credit it to his parents for such good upbringing. Similarly, if believers are well taken care of, healthy and whole; Father God gets the all the glory!

God is love. He has loved us with an everlasting love and drawn us into His loving-kindness (Jeremiah 31:3). He has plans to prosper us and plans to give us hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). It is always Father God’s desire to heal and bless His children, simply because He loves us!

but we can face him (God) with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world. Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear.   1John 4:17-18

We live like Jesus here in this world! What a revelation. We don’t need to wait unit heaven to experience miracles. Like Jesus, if our believe is set correctly, based on His Word, our faith will rise and give breakthroughs in our prayer, in finances, in healing and in the restoration of relationships; things that once were once rare or impossible, are going to become common in our lives. What once was extraordinary is going to become prevalent for anyone who will dare to believe God for it. It is time for us to stretch our faith and stretch our hope than we have ever thought before. Our God is bigger than we think.

    Amen. This is so true. What a radical change will come over the church when we start to understand the abundant life that Jesus made possible and have faith in God’s promises.
