Why does God allow sickness?



Question: “Why does God allow sickness to exist?”



Bible Answer

While Satan’s intent for sickness is to distract our attention from God to our sickness, God can use this time to draw us closer to Himself.  Romans 8:28 reminds us, And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him.  Many people who have been ill look back with fondness on the time of illness as a time of drawing closer to God.  


God has used sickness to save many of His children from going down the wrong path, the path of destruction.  God does not want us sick, but I believe He is willing to sacrifice our body to save our soul.


We most often do not know why God in His infinite wisdom has delayed healing, but in trust, we should never turn from God but draw closer to God.
