This is a lie: God gives us sickness to teach us a lesson.
God would not have us sin any more than He would want to give us sickness. If God wouldn’t lead us into sin then why would He lead us sickness?
Psalm 103:1-4 says,
“Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies.”
He came for forgiveness of sins and for our healing it’s a package deal. Adam and Eve were pure. They did not sin and they had no sickness until they ate the fruit of the tree. Then sin entered and sickness came. Sin separated us from God until Jesus came. Jesus redeemed us from the curse of sin, sickness, and poverty.
“Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law having become a curse for us.“ Galatians 3:13
When the curse was broken and we were reconciled with God it destroyed all the power of the devil. This means sickness and disease has no right to be in your body. However, the enemy still roars around like a lion. (Sickness is one way he likes to roar.)
“Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8
If you feel as though you are being devoured, run down, and exhausted with every symptom or sickness might I suggest running the other way? Or, simply stop running toward the fake lion. Meaning, stop putting all your energy and identity into what you feel or a diagnosis from a doctor and more in what Jesus did on the cross for you. Trust me when I say this, I know it is easier said than done. I wouldn’t be here saying anything of this if I didn’t fight the battle myself.
The word vigilant means to be watchful. The word sober means to be self-controlled, to have good judgment, or wisdom. Therefore, it’s important to be watchful of what is happening in our lives and what we may be choosing to accept that doesn’t align with His word. The more of His love that captures our hearts the more sober minded our thought life will become.
