God Wants You Whole

God wants you whole and would allow none of His children be subject to sickness and sin. His desire is that we live victoriously all the days of our lives in His joy, love and blessings.

God wants you whole

Text: Exodus 15:26; 1 Peter 2:24; 3 John 2

The concept of being whole can mean healing. Healing is the restoration of the body or/and soul from a diseased condition to a normal state. The ultimate plan of God is for His people to stay healthy. Until sin came, sickness did not enter the lexicon of man: Man became susceptible to sickness just from the time of fall. However, God is ever committed to your health and well-being.

As a believer in Christ, you should know that God is never happy seeing you sick. It baffles to see some Christians believe that God can make them sick to teach them a lesson. The truth remains that there is no lesson God wants to teach you by making you sick.

Have you ever seen a “good father” break the leg of his son just because he wants to teach him a lesson? When you fall sick as a believer it could be that you have indulged in certain violation and carelessness, and not that God wants to teach you a lesson. The position of God is clear as it concerns your health and wellness. He never changes (Hebrews 13:8)

You may say it was when you came down with a sickness that you learned a certain lesson. The truth is that you don’t have to be afflicted with sickness or get into trouble before you learn, if only you can make yourself teachable in the hands of the Holy Spirit; for the Bible says ‘He (Holy Spirit) will teach us things to come.’ John 16:13 says, “He makes us know things (in advance) before they come.”

It is a wicked teacher that gives the lesson after the test and that’s typical of our adversary, devil. He is the one that wants you to get into trouble whether you learn from it or not. When a believer lives in defiance of God’s instruction, the devil gets involved so that he can label God wrongly in the life of that believer.

Haven’t you seen how many people display their ignorance by attributing tragic event such as earthquake or a national disaster to an Act of God? It is surprising that someone would say a tragic occurrence is an Act of God. The question is what would God gain from causing pain, losses and sorrow? What would He gain from making humanity suffer untold hardship? And if these are Acts of God, then what are the Acts of the devil – joy, safety, prosperity?

God wants you whole

The will of God has always been to save man from the power of sin and suffering. He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to the world for this very purpose – that we may be saved and have abundant life. To have a Christian believe that God is behind all the pain and sorrow in the world means something is definitely wrong somewhere.

The devil knows his job perfectly but believers must know theirs as well. If the devil can get you into wrong mindset against God, then he can keep you in bondage for long. You have to take audit of your life today and find out where you have believed a lie against God and come out of it immediately (2 Corinthians 13:5).

God wants you whole at all times. He has promised sound health, joy, peace and has greater plans for His children. 1 Corinthians 2:9 says, “But as it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the hearts of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”

Now is the time to love the Lord with all your heart and reap His blessings. Have faith, trust in His word and it shall be well with you in Jesus’ name. Amen.
