Matthew 7:11 11…how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
For 5-months I’ve been asking God to heal me of my gut issue. I’ve discovered a way to manage the discomfort…but activity of even the lightest kind can quickly cripple me, forcing me to find comfort and a reprieve by lying on the ground on my back. Why won’t God heal me? That’s a fair question that I cannot answer. Despite the fact that the Washington Health Exchange (Obama’s idea of great healthcare) still can’t seem to remedy my healthcare card which still reports “inactive”…I remain upbeat and hopeful. Why? Because God said “I’ve got this.” My God is a good God! There is a slight and very small possibility that this problem is a very serious and life threatening situation. In the end…the very small chance that it could kill me doesn’t change the fact that God is a good God, and gives good things to those who ask him. Right now…as I ask for healing, God seems to be indicating by his silence, that the discomfort and sickness I periodically feel throughout the day is sufficient for me. Why? I have no idea. Either way…I am compelled to believe that He is the loving father that even withholds healing, when it serves a bigger picture that I cannot see. God is in control of everything, and if He deems it’s time to heal me or let me come home with him in glory…either way I will praise him.
Father, please heal me. That is my heart’s desire. But not my will…but Your will be done!
