Does God want you healthy?
What do you think God's will is for you?
Good or bad?
Sickness or health?
When you are claiming healing or wanting to stay open to health, it's important to get clear on your answer to this question.
My answer is that God wants us healthy.
Would sickness exist in the Garden of Eden?
If this were God’s kingdom, if this was a place where the God’s will is done - an all-loving, all-powerful God, would sickness exist?
For many people, Jesus is God.
For others he is an enlightened one - as close to God as any of us will get.
Either way, it seems appropriate to look at what Jesus does to see whether or not God wants us healthy.
Jesus heals. Again and again we have examples of Jesus healing in the Bible.
Given that Jesus heals, many of us believe that God wants us healthy.
I know I do!

“Then they brought him a
demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so
that he could both talk and see....
But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebub, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”
Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them,
“Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined,
and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.
If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself.
How then can his kingdom stand?”
(Matthew 12:22-26, NIV, Bible quote for Gods will is Health)
In the scripture about healing above, Jesus makes the point that the
blindness and the muteness are not of God. They are of Satan.
Jesus says that if he heals, then he must be acting for God because God wants us to be healthy.
Consider the following bible verse.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows.”
(James 1:17, KJV esword)
Is illness a perfect gift? It doesn’t feel like it to me.
Far from it.
If it is not a perfect gift then it is not of God.
In Job 2:7, we are told it is Satan and not God who “afflicted Job with painful sores”.
I used, and still use, these scriptures on healing to affirm my belief that sickness is not of God.
God wants us healed and whole.
In fact, in God's eyes we already are healed and whole.

Or just continue reading through this series of articles on Scriptures for Health and Healing.
There is an excellent book available if you want to use scriptures on healing to cultivate the belief that God's will is health for you and me.
The book Healing The Sick by T J Osborne played a part in raising my faith for healing.
I reached the point where scriptures on healing were like food for me.
I was hungry for them- hungry to replace my own muddled thoughts of illness with these words of power and possibility.
This book Healing The Sick assumes that you find truth in the Bible and that you believe Jesus heals today - it is full-on evangelical Christianity, so it will not be for everyone.
Even if you are Christian you might find it hard going. At first, I found it simplistic and preachy. At a later date, felt called back to read it.
Someone who credits dramatic healing to this book is Adrian Rose. He became a Chrstian while living with ME/CFS and wrote the wonderful book Love Never Fails.
