Do I pray for miraculous healing for my chronic pain? You bet I do. Am I expecting it? Well, if God wills, yes. “Whatever you want, Jesus” I pray. “If it would give you more glory and advance your Gospel more quickly. I’m all for it!”
That’s the goal for whatever we ask of God, right? To submit to God and obey his Word, knowing full well that if I had everything else in life and lacked that, I’d have nothing.
It’s all about Jesus getting the greatest glory, whether I jump out of my wheelchair pain-free, or I continue to smile in my wheelchair, knowing that in my pain I’ve got quite a few lessons to learn, a character to be honed, other wounded people to identify with, a hurting world to reach with the Gospel, and a suffering Savior with whom I can enjoy greater intimacy. And that’s as good a miracle as it comes.
