James 5:14-15 – Verse of the Day 9/23/14

James 5:14-15 Verse of the Day
Which do you naturally think is worse, a deathly illness or sin? The natural tendency for most people is to think that sickness and death are much worse problems. What about the Bible?

This verse is a good example of the fact that the Bible takes both sin and sickness seriously. Both are problems and God is in control of both as well. Here we are reminded that, as in all things, we should trust in God and pray when we are sick. James does not promise that the sick will recover in this life, though. Notice that God’s answer to prayer in such situations is “to raise him up” and “forgive.” We may die in this life, but we should not worry because we are promised eternal life through faith in Christ. This is a good and solid hope, much better than a cure which cannot make us live forever.

Praise God for the gift of eternal life and salvation. Thank Him for his mercy in forgiving you. Ask Him for the faith to trust Him and allow your eternal hope to help you live with faith and trust when you experience sickness and trials in this life.

Heavenly Father, Please be with me Lord as I go to the Dr. this morning, I pray he tells me everything is okay. I thank you for loving me. I thank you for sending your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, To the world to save and to set me free. I trust in your power and grace that sustain and restore me. Loving Father, touch me now with your healing hands, For I believe that your will is for me to be well in mind, body, Soul and spirit. Cover me with the most precious blood of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ from the top of my head to the soles of my feet. Cast out anything that should not be in me. Root out any unhealthy and abnormal cells. Open any blocked arteries or veins and rebuild and replenish Any damaged areas. Remove all inflammation and cleanse any infection by the Power of Jesus' precious blood. Let the fire of your healing love pass through my entire body To heal and make new any diseased areas so that my body Will function the way you created it to function. Touch also my mind and my emotion, even the deepest Recesses of my heart. Saturate my entire being with your presence, love, joy, and Peace and draw me ever closer to you every moment of my life. And Father, fill me with your Holy Spirit and empower me to Do your works so that my life will bring glory and honor to Your holy name. I ask this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. I pray for the healing of all those requesting prayers.

So many of us run to the "practitioners" when we become ill. I am not saying it is wrong to seek a doctor's help; but, do we first take the steps that our Lord and Savior has given us? My husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor and PRAISE GOD it turned out to be benign and after months of Neurosurgeon's talking back and forth, they were able to treat it with the Gamma-knife and not cut into his brain. So many of us had prayed and God has answered. My husband is fine and is back working.
