I remember when I first became unwell, I knew a women who had a long term cancer. She’d had it for several decades. Often I would think “If God hasn’t healed her, what chance do I have?” I didn’t realise at the time but I was feeling unworthy of God’s love.
I had a false belief system that healing and spiritual maturity were linked. She was a very close walk with the Lord, proficient in numerous spiritual gifts. I couldn’t understand why she wasn’t healed.
Have you ever felt too unworthy to approach God? Do you think you’re not good enough to receive a healing? Maybe you too think your relationship with God needs to be at a certain level? This is exactly what I thought.
Well, no-one was thought to be more unworthy of God’s love than the leper. In fact, lepers couldn’t approach any man, least of all the Son of God. He was completely unqualified to worship or come near to God.
