that the evilness of the city would inhibit healing, further adding to the complexity of the issue. At the end of the day, the best answer I can give as to why God heals some and not others is, “I don’t know.”
The Lack of Answers
Though I have no answer to the mystery of “selective healing”, I find peace in knowing that for my wife and I, our personal faith doesn’t depend on physical healing. While it would bring glory to God, our journey has shown that our faith has inspired others and possibly brought glory to Him even while we continue to live with disabilities.
Embracing Vulnerability and God’s Strength
In our lives, we have learned to embrace vulnerability and allow God to be strong in our weaknesses. Drawing inspiration from David’s acknowledgment in Psalm 139 that we cannot hide from God’s presence, we find solace and strength in His presence despite a lack of physical healing.
In conclusion, the experience of witnessing both miraculous healing and a lack of healing has deepened our understanding of faith, vulnerability, and the sovereignty of God. While we don’t have all the answers, we continue to trust in His plan and find peace, knowing that He uses our faith to inspire others regardless of our physical circumstances.
