God’s Favor May 27, 2009

The cancer that goes into remission isn’t a sign of God’s favor or God’s victory over cancer. A prayer that asks for healing doesn’t manipulate God into loving one and hating another. All prayer asks God to be God, and that means even-handed mercy, unconditional love, courage to face even death, and the gift of self-sacrifice among strangers.

    Yes, it is hard to fathom why God brings some folks the healing to continue in this life and others not. For those who are in Jesus Christ and God’s Kingdom, to live is Christ, to die is gain.

    God is God and He is in control. True peace is not in healing, not in absence of suffering. Healing is not about what we see either. It is about setting things right in accordance with His will
