Can God Heal Diabetes?
ChristiaNet.com, a large Christian portal with eight million monthly page loads, recently asked, "Can God heal diabetes?" President of ChristiaNet, Bill Cooper said, "A vast majority of Christians surveyed felt that God can heal diabetes."
With nearly 900 Christians responding to the survey, 96% felt that God could heal diabetes. The major theme from most participants seemed to be that all things are possible with God. "With God nothing is impossible," said one Believer. "It may not be part of His plan to heal a particular person of diabetes, but I've seen miracles so I know He can do it!" One family shared their miracle healing: "My son at age 4 was diagnosed with three terminal cancers. We prayed, begging God to heal our son. Two days later our son was healed. God can heal anything!" Another in agreement stated, "By the stripes of Jesus at Calvary we are healed of all diseases and our transgressions are forgiven. Hence diabetes is not an exception."
Two percent of pollers felt that God could not heal diabetes. Many responders felt that God could give one strength to make necessary lifestyle changes. "You can ask God for strength to choose the right diet and exercise, and to help you stick to it, but He cannot heal diabetes." Many believed that since diabetes was not a spiritual condition that God would not heal it. "Diabetes is a medical condition and He does not interfere with natural laws."
Another two percent of Christians were unsure whether God could heal diabetes or not. "I believe that God has the power to give us the strength to do what is needed to overcome diabetes, but faith alone will not always cure the condition," said one Believer. Some responders were seeking healing themselves, but were wondering how long it would take. "It has been 5 years and we are still praying for miracle." While others thought that sometimes God's plan is not about the healing. "Sometimes God does not heal, in order to make us strong in the faith and to bring us closer to Him."
