This is a lie from the pit of hell, and a lot of Christians have bought it hook, line and sinker. Quite a number of people, both believers and non-believers, sincerely believe that God inflicts sickness on His children to make them humble. In their religious minds, they think God knew that but for the sickness, some of His children would have lived terrible lives.
But the Bible lets us know that every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning (James 1:17).
Only good gifts come from our heavenly Father. Sicknesses would hardly qualify as a gift, not to mention being a good or perfect one. Sickness is from the devil and God does not need the devil’s tool to fix any good thing for His children.
Why would He have to use the instrument of Satan to perform a good deed in your life? If God put sickness on you to humble you and then you ran to your doctor, or took drugs to take away what God put on you to make you humble, wouldn’t that be hypocrisy? The truth is God never inflicts sickness on any of His children to make them humble.
God is the best daddy there is. He is your Father and He wants the very best for you. Recognize and take full advantage of the Fatherhood of God, knowing that His will is to bless and not to curse.
