Is it God’s Will to Heal Every Time?, Part 2 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #172)

Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #172

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is James 5:13 which reads: “Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from George Mueller. He said: “It is not enough to begin to pray, nor to pray aright; nor is it enough to continue for a time to pray; but we must patiently, believingly, continue in prayer until we obtain an answer.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 2 of our series titled “IS IT GOD’S WILL TO HEAL EVERY TIME?” from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said…

Certainly it is not always God’s will to heal. When God promised in Romans 8:28 that “all things work together for good to them that love God,” He included sickness in His “all things.”

How much blessedness has come because of the sufferings of Christians! Stephen was martyred. If his bones could honor the Lord in being broken, could not ours, sometimes? If Timothy’s weak stomach was not healed but needed careful moderation and use of fruit juice, why may not Christians today sometimes have weak stomachs to the glory of God? If Job suffered, if Paul suffered, if Timothy had often infirmities, if Trophimus and Epaphroditus could be sick to the glory of God, then sometimes that may be true of you too. It was for the glory of God that Lazarus was sick and died. Then it was to God’s glory that he should be raised from the dead.
