Healing is possible

Sickness can be said to be weakness or an abnormal condition that affects the structure or function of part or all of the body. The origin of sickness or disease can be traced to the fall of man in the garden of Eden, Genesis 2:17.
But did God punish man with sickness when Adam disobeyed His instruction?
I’m sorry but this was the distorted image I had of God, that He punishes or disciplines us with sickness. God created a perfect earth and placed man in it, man was also in a perfect state until they disobeyed God’s instructions and the door was opened for the for the devil to inflict sickness upon man.
According to Roman 5:12, death (sickness and disease included) came through sin. Sin and its effects was transferred to all men by Adam’s disobedience. If God is the author of sickness and disease, then why will He use same as a rod in punishing.
There is an interesting event in the bible that proves that, God doesn’t inflict pains, sickness and disease on us but satan is the author of sickness and disease. In the book of Job 2:1, we see satan seeking permission from God from God to afflict the body of Job with sickness. The devil is always looking for an opportunity to afflict man’s body.
In Numbers 1:4-9, the bible talks about how the Israelites spoke against God and snakes were allowed by God to bite them, (the bible says “God sent”), but did God send these snakes? Let’s check something in the book of Job 1:20-21, Job 6:4 we see Job talking about God as the one punishing him by taking all he had and afflicting his body with sickness, this because how his level of understanding  of who God was. Same applies to the Israelites, they saw God as a one Who punishes with evil, hence sending snakes to bite them for their disobedience, but not having the understanding that they opened the door for evil to come upon them by their complains. When we are ignorant about the schemes of the devil, we will keep attributing sickness to God and not use our authority in Christ to deal with it. It is the will of God for us to be in good health.
In the four gospels, we see Jesus revealing the will of God to us when He healed the sick by casting out the demons behind it. For example, in Luke 4:40-41, Luke 6:17-19, Mark 3:10-11, Matthew 8:10 all these scriptures show us how people received their healings when the devil afflicting them was cast out. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil (sickness and disease included) and gave us life eternal ( healing). God is not the cause of sickness that is why He sent His son to destroy it.
Having this knowledge of Jesus taking upon Himself not just my sins, but my sickness and disease, I have resolved to confess boldly my healing in other to prevent the enemy from having access to my body through negative confessions. And will also deal with sickness as coming from the devil and not God.
