It is not always God’s will to heal a person physically. A person may sincerely pray and truly have faith that God can heal, but if it is not God’s will to provide healing at that time, then no healing will come 1 John 5:14). If it were always God’s will for people to be healed, then everyone would be healed every time he or she became ill. The question we need to ask in any given situation is, what does God want for an individual’s life?
Have you ever asked God for healing in a particular situation? What happened? Have you ever prayed about something very important to you and had to wait a long time for God’s answer to your prayer? How did you feel? What did you learn about God?
