Q: Does God always heal those that pray for healing here on earth in this day and age?
Why doesn’t God always heal? Well, here is my humble opinion on God healing people from physical and mental sickness, from what I read in Bible and see here on earth;
In my opinion from reading the Bible, God’s will HAS to be to heal – He is a God of love. But here’s where we find ourselves in regard to healing in this world; The world has chosen the itself over Him, and fallen accordingly. Therefore He has removed His hand of protection from it and us, as we see everywhere – no one is immune from this judgement on the world.
Faith is the assurance of things hoped for but NOT seen
Therefore it’s His choice weather He intervenes in any particular case to show His glory. It’s His call. But we should have faith always in Him healing us either now, temporarily (remember everything on earth dies, so in that sense there is never full physical healing on earth, as ageing and death in a sense is a sickness in and of itself after all, illness comes about most often from ageing, after is the breakdown of what are once perfectly functioning cells that are no longer able to function properly – it’s all part of the fall) or – when we receive our new bodies – either way – those who love God and love truth – will be healed period.
When asking the question: why doesn’t God always heal? We must never forget – though Jesus healed everyone he met instantly indicating this is often how God works, he himself had to wait till after death to be physically healed – so both timings of healing are clearly in operation.
Always pray for healing and expect to be healed – either now or later. Never lose faith in God to fulfil His promise that He wishes to heal ALL men – and will heal ALL men that love Him.
