God Made A Promise

Jesus' death ratified the Abrahamic covenant (God's covenant/promises with Abraham) which granted us healing for our bodies, prosperity, and well-being for our families. These promises are the basis of the entire New Testament. 
It was because of this covenant, Jesus came to earth.

Genesis 17: 1-5, 7 "And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and they seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee." 

English Standard Version says it like this: 
"And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you."

If you are 'In Christ,' you are the seed of Abraham and therefore you have a 'Blood bought' right to these promises.
This should confirm for every child of God the question: 
"Is it God's Will that you be healed." 

God sealed His side of the agreement by swearing an oath. 
Genesis 22:16, God said, "By myself, have I sworn.

Abraham's side of the agreement was to live an upright life.

Lack Of Knowledge

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." Hosea 4:6 

Our faith in God is paralyzed and cannot operate beyond our knowledge of His Word.  
When we learn God's Word, we understand His Will.

*Everything we receive from God is through faith and the Bible tells us that "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God." Romans 10:17 

So in order to know what God's Will is concerning healing, we have to understand Him, what He has accomplished for us and what He desires to give us. 
We do this through the Bible, His Word.

The Secret Place

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD,
He is my refuge and my fortress:
my God; in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,
and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers,
and under his wings shalt thou trust:
his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night;
nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness;
nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side,
and ten thousand at thy right hand;
but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold
and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge,
even the Most High, thy habitation;

there shall no evil befall thee,
neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, 
to keep thee in all thy ways.

They shall bear thee up in their hands,
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 

Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder:
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 

Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him:
I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him:
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him, and honor him.

With long life will I satisfy him,
and show him my salvation.

-Psalm 91
