Luke 13:16 - "And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan bound for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?”
The teaching that says that sickness is actually a blessing in disguise, because the Lord is working His plan in one's life is not found in scripture. Nowhere do we find Jesus refusing to heal anyone. His actions are proof enough that it is always God's will to heal!
Jesus provided for physical healing as well as forgiveness of sins. The very word save (Greek "sozo") is translated "made whole" in reference to physical healing. James 5:15 says "the prayer of faith shall save (sozo) the sick".
Many scriptures mention the healing of our bodies in conjunction with the forgiveness of our sins. Healing is part of our salvation, just as much as the forgiveness of our sins.
It is God's will that no one should perish, but many do because of their unbelief. Likewise, it is God's will that we all be healed, but not all are healed because of failure to believe.
