The God Who Made Us Can Make Us Healthy
When you aren’t feeling healthy or well, what is the first thing you do? Go to the medicine cabinet? Make an appointment with the doctor? Or, suffer through it and hope it’s nothing serious? Most of my life I did all of the above. It wasn’t until a number of years ago when I saw people healed in revival meetings in Africa that I started to look at health and wellness differently. I learned that the God who made us can make us well, and that he made the things that can make us well.
In many parts of the world, people who are ill have no access to drugs and doctors. If a person in a third-world country is not a Christian and they aren’t feeling well, then they either head to the hut of the medicine man for traditional remedies risking additional problems related to witchcraft, or they get worse and die. However, if the person is a Christian, their first response to sickness is to pray as God really is their only hope. Those who have rejected the witchcraft of the shamans have nowhere else to turn except God. Their hunger to be touched by God is tangible as they pull powerfully on Heaven above for mercy here on earth below.
There is a reason supernatural healing is far more common-place in other parts of the world and not so much here in America or the West.
