Why do we get sick? For the same reason we still sin! Jeremiah prayed, “Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise” (Jeremiah 17:14 NIV).
This is a fallen world, and the kingdom is a coming kingdom. Sickness and sin stalk our planet. But neither sin nor sickness will have dominion over God’s people. Sin cannot condemn us and disease cannot destroy us. Guilt is defanged, and death has lost its sting. The very sin and sickness that Satan intends for evil, God redeems–He redeems it for good. Sin becomes a showcase of his grace. Sickness becomes a demonstration of God’s ability to heal. Every fiber, molecule, and brainwave answers to his command. God is in charge!
