"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." 3 John 1:2 "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11
Since God is all powerful, so why doesn't He just fix everything? Have you ever wanted to spend money for two different things but you only had money for one? Maybe you wanted a new car, but then you wouldn't have money for college or your children's needs? Have you ever wanted to do two things at the same time but had to choose only one? We can truly want more than one thing and if those things are in conflict, we are forced to choose only one of them. Sometimes we have to choose. God is no different. God wants us to have health and He HATES sin, pain, death, disease. He wants us to have life, health, happiness. BUT God also wants use to love Him out of free will, our choice. God HATE force or coercion. God IS Love. Love is the ruling power in God's character and love requires freedom of choice. The freedom means some can choose to hurt and destroy, like Satan in the beginning, and now millions of us. We choose to eat junk food, our parents and grandparents made choices that affect our currently health. Sin itself destroys health.

God restores health – Right now, only sometimes, but in the end, it will be universal. Psalms 42:11 - "Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God." (God is the source of healing.) Jeremiah 33:6 - "Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth." (Prophecy about Jesus coming to heal those in His day.) Matthew 14:36 - "And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were restored to health." (Jesus healed while on earth, fulfilling prophecy and giving us a taste of what is to come.)
Isaiah 58:8 - "Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thy health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rear-ward." (End time prophecy.)
Jeremiah 30:17 - "For I will restore health to thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after." (End time prophecy.)
WHEN??? - Revelation 21:1-6 "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God [is] with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, [and be] their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely."
