Thought for the day

"With every breath of faith and with every testimony of joy where God has so graciously dealt with His children and healing was the result, there is the voice of another of disappointment and heartache at the loss of a loved one. God-thinking requires we trust God:
  • Trust God when all is well.
  • Trust God when all is not well.
  • Trust God when the answer is yes.
  • Trust God when the answer is not yes.
  • Trust God when His mysterious ways cannot be unscrambled, to fit what we think should happen.
You need to trust God when youe receive what you desire, but also to trust God with your desires. God is in the know. He will provide above and beyond your expectations and you can see it clearly, when you see it through the eyes of faith.
  • Trust God when you receive and trust God when you don't receive.
  • Trust God when you are healed.
  • And trust God when sickness prevails.
Sickness is temporal, but trust is eternal.

I admire those who have faith to receive healing. I am one. I also admire those who have not received their healing and trust God in their current circumstances. I have friends that say, "never say you are sick." I find nothing in scripture to support denying the reality of your physical condition. After all there could be no healing if there were no sickness. We need to trust the Father when we are sick. Sickness is part of the fall.

God-thinking admits that God has not divulged His All-ness to us, as some proclaim."
