"If I can believe it, then I can receive it..."
There was no sickness until there was sin.
Adam and Eve had it great. They lived in a perfect place, with perfect peace with a perfect God. They had a loving relationship with a God who gave them their every desire. God adored them, they were the apple of His eye. The only tree of the Garden that they could not partake of was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Genesis 2:16-17 (NIV)
Ge 16 (NIV) And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;
17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die."
There are some who believe that eventually they could have, with God's permission, enjoyed that tree, but God knew they were not ready. It doesn't matter, at this point, there is no other way of putting it: They committed high treason and the curse began which had sickness as part of the package.
But Jesus came and redeemed us from the curse...
And because of the Cross, people who can believe what the full redemption really is are getting healed.
