GOD CANNOT BE ARM-TWISTED TO EVEN SAVE US, LET ALONE HEAL US!

Duke Jeyaraj

Our generation has a wrong sense of pride and entitlement. The truth of the matter is this: God cannot be even forced, arm-twisted to do ANYTHING, for God is God and we are mere humans. For example, God cannot even be forced to SAVE us, leave alone HEAL us! This is truth is found in OT – ‘Seek the LORD, all you humble of the land, who do his just commands; seek righteousness; seek humility; PERHAPS you may be hidden on the day of the anger of the LORD’ (Zeph. 2:3). And even in Post-Cross NT: ‘Repent, therefore, of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that, IF POSSIBLE, the intent of your heart may be forgiven you’ (Acts 8:22). Of course, God is willing to save us, when we come in repentance and a humble posture (2 Peter 3:9)! And when it comes to healing-miracle-problems, the Lord may choose to allow them and say, ‘my grace is sufficient for you!’ (2 Cor. 12:9).
