EPIC FAIL: Waiting for a “Miracle”.

This is a really sad story, and I think even more sad than the story is the title of the video, “God doesn’t love obese people.” That is NOT a valid implication from this story. The truth is that we can’t always expect for God to heal us physically. Sometimes we just have to go on with our lives, accepting that God is in control of everything that happens, praying for healing, but accepting that God’s will–not necessarily ours–is what will ultimately take place. This is why we pray, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven” — not because God won’t work everything according to His purpose, but because we need to believe that He will, and trust Him even when He doesn’t heal a physical ailment!

In Luke 22:42 Jesus prayed, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.”

God wasn’t willing to remove the cup from Jesus, but Jesus was willing to accept that. “Not my will, but yours, be done.” Did God abandon His Son at this point? No, for in verse 43 we see that God sent an angel from heaven to strengthen Jesus. God showed His love, but it was not in the same way Jesus had asked. God showed His wisdom in denying Jesus’ request, and Jesus put His faith in the wisdom of God.

So we, when God doesn’t answer our prayers as we wish, must remember that our prayers are not in vain. Our heavenly Father cares for us so deeply and loves us so deeply, but He knows better than us, and we must trust Him in that.

  1. Paul pleaded to the Lord three times for Him to remove the thorn from his flesh, but the Lord responded, “My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

    Sometimes it isn’t about whether or not God can heal an ailment (He can do anything, technically), but how God uses said ailment.
