When I am afraid, I will trust in you. – Psalm 56:3 NIV
I received a message from my sister yesterday that our mother had fallen in her yard and hit her head. My sister texted me from the Emergency Room that they were waiting on CT results.
The news hit me like a lightning bolt through the heart. I could feel fear creeping in, but I immediately began to pray, asking Jesus to help. I sent an email to my church family and asked them to pray as well.
God answers our prayers, and He does so quickly sometimes! I received a call from my sister and talked to my mom. My mom has a bump on her head, but the CT came back normal and there was no internal bleeding. She was at my sister’s house, and the doctor had recommended that she be woken up every two hours. She would not be able to drive or stay home by herself for a while, but God answered our prayers, and she is okay. God is good! Amen.
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. – Matthew 6:33-34 NIV
God answers prayers! When His answer is, “yes,” sometimes we are surprised, because we are so worried that the worst case scenario will play out anyway, we expect bad news.
When good news comes to us, we can rejoice in the Lord’s blessings and enduring mercy.
I spoke to my friend who had COVID-19. He is doing much better and is out of the hospital. I was so worried, but the Lord restored and strengthened him, just as all of us praying for him had asked. Hearing my friend’s voice encouraged me and reminded me how powerful our living God is. He is good. Amen.
