Have you ever been told by another Christian that sickness is
God-given or God-ordained, and intended to be a means by which
God refines our character or deepens our faith? This is certainly one
view of sickness and disease - it is a tool used mysteriously by God
for His own good purposes. Well what does the Bible, God’s holy
Word, say in regard to this subject? Only by examining the divinely
inspired words of the Bible can we obtain a true and accurate picture
of God’s will concerning sickness, disease, healing and health.
