Is it God’s Will? – Jasmine’s Journey of Healing

We have finished day 2 of Jasmine’s treatments. The treatment took longer today so I had more time to do the things that grow my faith. I decided to listen to a sermon by one of my favorite speakers, Bill Johnson. I’ve been listening to his messages on healing and I really needed to hear his message today. The more I study about the Holy Sprit and praying for miracles the more discontent I am with some Christian thinking. For most of my life I’ve joined in with other Christians making “excuses” for God. If we pray for a miracle and we don’t get it we default by saying, “It must be God’s will to not heal this person” or “God is teaching him/her a lesson so He isn’t going to answer us yet.”

Bill Johnson is totally opposed to these philosophies. He plainly preaches that it’s never God’s will for us to suffer and die. He takes it a step further and states, “It’s even wrong to say that God allows it. If I beat my kids or allow the neighbor to do it, what’s the difference?” I totally agree with him. If it was God’s will that we are sick then He would have created sickness when He created Adam and Eve. If it’s not His will to heal us then He wouldn’t have sent His Son down to heal everyone He came in contact with.

I believe, with all my heart, that God wants to heal Jasmine. I am fully committed to my part in her miracle and what I’ve learned is that God is calling us to take authority (based on our relationship with Him) and speak His Words over the people who need healing. Based on Proverbs 3:8 I journaled, “Jasmine respects the Eternal. She turns and runs from evil. She depends on Him so her body and mind are free from the strain of a sinful life. She is experiencing healing and health and is strengthened at her core.”

The beautiful thing about praying Scripture over others is that it invites God to reach out with His love and lead them on a path that lines them up with the Scripture. We are walking by faith (what God says) not by sight (the reality of what we see around us).

Here are some quotes that Jasmine has on her phone that have encouraged her:

“We don’t see things as they are. We see things as we are.” Anais Nin

“I’ve learned the most, unlearning what I knew.”
