Nothing can describe the horror of hearing doctors say, 'You will never walk or use your hands again.' Or - 'You have cancer. I'm afraid it's terminal.' Like many people, you look to the Lord and pray for healing. You have friends and the pastor pray for you, but nothing happens. You read Scripture and claim the promises. You even have someone anoint you with oil or go to a healing crusade. You confess every possible sin and search your heart for any unconfessed sin. Your faith is strong and you tell everyone you will be healed, yet nothing seems to happen.
You feel that God is playing a cruel joke or start to blame yourself for a lack of faith. And that's a shame when Christians feel that way. The truth is that God certainly can heal and sometimes does heal people in a miraculous way. But the Bible does not teach that he will always heal those who come to him in faith.
The big question is:
What does the Bible REALLY teach about healing?
The key is to understand God's ultimate goal for your life. You need to -
Find joy in knowing God's priorities for your life.
Know the comfort of the biblical promises.
Enthusiastically embrace God's will for your life.
You can find the joy of serving God despite unanswered prayer in this 14-page minibook.
