God is more willing to heal us than we are willing to be healed. So why do Christians fall sick? Why do we find a lot of God’s children suffering and in pain? There are several reasons for this, but thank God, there’s no situation that cannot be brought under the control of God’s Word.
Lack of Knowledge
Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” This is the principal reason a lot of God’s people are in sickness: lack of knowledge and understanding of the Word of God concerning them. The word ‘destroyed’ has as its synonyms ‘suffer’ and ‘perish,’ so we might as well say, “God’s people suffer because of lack of knowledge.” A lot of Christians have perfect understanding of every issue of life except that which is most vital – the Word of God, what God has said concerning them, who they are in Christ, what they can do and what they have in Him. Only the Word of God can reveal this to us. We need to know who we are, what we can do and what we have. When you know who you are you will know how to live. You will realize there are certain things you don’t need to pray about. We were born into the rest of God, but too many Christians don’t know this. If you’ve entered into God’s rest, you’ve ceased from your own works like God did. But if you don’t know this, you’ll struggle in life.
Hebrews 4:10, ”For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God
did from his.” That’s why it’s so vital that we have an understanding of the Word of God. Understanding of God’s Word will reveal your identity to you. Then you can live accordingly, because if you don’t know who you are, you can never act accordingly.
