The ‘increase your faith to receive healing’ brigade came at me a few weeks ago and I’ve sat on this post since then.
Because they are church leaders, I kept quiet.
But it saddened me.
You see, the issue they have is that I have Cerebral Palsy.
It’s a developmental disability I have had since birth that affects mostly my movement, gait, posture and depth perception.
I have had this my whole life and I have thrived and served despite this my whole life.
Now I’m wondering….
How many parents, kids, young people with disabilities have we saddled with the guilt of their ‘being sick’ being their fault because they lack faith?
How many mothers are depressed because all of their ‘faith’ isn’t working and their pastors and churches insist it’s their fault?
How many have we driven from the faith with this misguided theology?
Child of God, Listen, God does not heal every condition or disease. God does not take away every thorn. He will use everything in your life for His glory whether or not He chooses to heal.
You are God’s masterpiece created for good works that he has prepared before time that you would do- Ephesians 2:10
Do not let anyone, no matter what their church given title is, tell you otherwise.
Repeat after me: I am God’s masterpiece.
Who’s With Me?
