Some sick people do not desire to be healed. The reasons vary, but the convenience of being cared for by others is an example. Some don't want to work, while others dread responsibilities. The sick and suffering person needs to assume initial responsibility for his/her own healing. He/she must realize that there is a connection between healing and obedience. Obedience is primarily to the Lord, but the idea may include to others, such as parents, siblings, health care workers, and so forth. Biblical admonitions to forgive one another when one seeks the blessings of health must be followed. Most important when one seeks physical healing is the foundation of salvation. In fact, the Bible suggests, in Psalm 103 and James 5, that spiritual healing should precede physical healing. Then faith must be in place for the wholeness of the person, as related to wellness of the body, to be achieved. A.B.
