God Heals You Because He Loves You

God heals you because He loves you.

The other day, I heard someone say, “God will heal you for His glory. It’s not about you.” That’s a nice sentiment. The only problem is, it’s just not Biblical.

The truth is that everything God does for you, including healing, He does because He loves you.

See, John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

This verse describes a “why” and a “what.” The “what” is what happened: God gave His only Son, Jesus. The “why” is because God loved.

We spend so much time focusing on the fact that God gave His Son, and we should. This is the good news of Christ. The problem is, we neglect the “why” behind the “what.” Somewhere in recent church history, we forgot that God gave Jesus to die on the cross because He loved us.

God is your Father. He loves to hug and kiss you and do everything nice for you… because He loves you!

Everything depends on God’s love. Unless you believe God loves you, you cannot receive from Him.

You cannot even receive salvation until you first receive God’s love. God’s love is the grease behind the wheel. It’s the grace behind the saving. It’s the spice that helps you swallow salvation in Christ Jesus.

All of God’s benefits are available to you through Christ.  Isaiah 53 outlines what many of those benefits are:

  • He bears your griefs so you don’t have to;
  • He carries your sorrows so you don’t have to;
  • He forgives your sins;
  • He takes away your inner compulsion to sin;
  • He takes away your anxieties so you can have peace; and
  • He heals you.
Every single one of these benefits is available to you because God loves you. That’s the only reason He gave His Son. 

God heals you because He loves you.

God comforts you when you cry, because He loves you.

God forgives you because He loves you.

I want to shout from the rooftops:

It IS about you! GOD LOVES YOU!

So receive from Him! Let everything Jesus bought and paid for with His own blood be fully realized in your life!

He loves you, because He loves you, because He loves you!

    Hi, today i had to go for a PET scan report because in my MRI and CT scan a suspicious growth was found in my viginal vault. I prayed and prayed for God to help me get a good report from my PET scan report. Although I am staying in His perfect peace, still fear and doubt is flooding my mind and to keep my mind above these doubts is like trying to keep a fully inflated soccer ball submerged in water…
    I need prayer…
