Why Am I Sick?

Sickness is not God's will for your life so why are you battling infirmities?

Have you ever asked yourself, "Why am I sick?" We can find the answer to this question in the Word of God. John 16:33 tells us that in this world we will have tribulation, or difficult times. Not because God has planned hard times or tragedy to come our way, but because we have an enemy, Satan who is bent on our destruction.

John 10:10a calls Satan a thief and tells us that his intentions are to steal, to kill, and to destroy. What do sickness and disease do? They steal, kill, and destroy. How do they do this? They rob us of our health, strength, peace, joy, and our hope for the future, exhaust our resources, tax our relationships, and try to kill our bodies.

So, why are we fighting with sickness and disease? Because Satan seeks to destroy us through his weapons of sickness and disease.
