"Sir," Gideon replied, "if the LORD is with us, why has all this happened to us? And where are all the miracles our ancestors told us about?

I believe God heals miraculously. ( something that shows in the x-ray will disappear..) It hasn't happened to me but that doesn't mean God doesn't do it.

"Why did I get this condition in my body?"
I usually stand in my closet and look back my life and repent of things I can think of when I get sick. I don't know if it is right, but it is just the way I am. Always there is something to repent from even though I don't know if it is related to my physical condition or not.

There is one scripture I found some time ago from Judges.

"Sir," Gideon replied, "if the LORD is with us, why has all this happened to us? And where are all the miracles our ancestors told us about? Didn't they say, `The LORD brought us up out of Egypt'? But now the LORD has abandoned us and handed us over to the Midianites."(Judges 6:13 NLT)

I was told there was a tumor in my right lung. Will I have a surgery?

When we ask the Lord "why" our God answers in various ways according to the situation, I believe, because He knows who we are and where our heart is. He doesn't seem to say "because" thought. God answered Gideon in a very unique way. I almost asked God "why" but my heart seemed to know the answer already.

3“It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him. (John 9:3)

May God be glorified!

But I wondered.

"Will you heal me?"

I know it is God's will to heal all of us, but will he heal me? Yet I ask him to heal me. I would definitely keep praying and praying for my family.

12In one of the villages, Jesus met a man with an advanced case of leprosy. When the man saw Jesus, he bowed with his face to the ground, begging to be healed. “Lord,” he said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.”
13Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared. (Luke 5 NLT)

12While he was in one of the cities, there came a man full of leprosy.a And when he saw Jesus, he fell on his face and begged him, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” 13And Jesusb stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I will; be clean.” And immediately the leprosy left him. (ESV)

In NLT Jesus said to be healed. Other translations says to be cleansed. My own understanding is if our whole body was cleansed then naturally diseased part of the body would be healed! Either way, it is Jesus' will to heal us.

"How will it happen?"
Not by eating certain herbs or drinks or food. Not by doing exercises and train body. Those things are beneficial, but healing happens only by the grace of God - by His mighty hand. I still try to eat healthy, but not focus on it too much (at least I will try not to ). I read the scripture somewhere the other day that spoke to me but I can't remember where it was. Should have written it down..

Finally, if whatever I have is not departing from me, I would cling to God and walk one step at a time, asking Him to let me not loose my sight of Him. If not our God, where else could I go?

English Standard Version (©2001)
Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, 
(John 6:68)

Lord, to whom shall I go? Only you have the words of eternal life.
