We choose whether to enjoy God's blessings and to continually be blessed or not. Weserve by what we do, and also by what we think and say.
Proverbs 18:21 (English Standard Version)
Death and life are in the power of the tongue,and those who love it will eat its fruits.
God wants us to thank him. To praise him. To realize how blessed we are.Jesus has great power. When He walked this earth, all He had to do was speak, and Hiswill was done.
Matthew 8 (English Standard Version)
7And he said to him, "I will come and heal him." 8But the centurion replied, "Lord, I amnot worthy to have you come under my roof, but only say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9For I too am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. And I say toone, 'Go,' and he goes, and to another, 'Come,' and he comes, and to my servant, 'Dothis,' and he does it."
13And to the centurion Jesus said, "Go; let it be done for you as you have believed." And the servant was healed at that very moment.
Jesus healed and the people glorified God.
Matthew 9 (New International Version)
6But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins...." Then he said to the paralytic, "Get up, take your mat and go home." 7And the man got upand went home. 8When the crowd saw this, they were filled with awe; and they praised God, who had given such authority to men.
And it is the will of God that people give glory to God. That we thank God and praiseHim for what He has done.
Luke 17 (English Standard Version)
15Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with aloud voice; 16and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was aSamaritan. 17Then Jesus answered, "Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18Wasno one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?" 19And he said tohim, "Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well."
And sometimes bad things happen just for the sake of the healing and the resulting gloryof God.
