Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. – James 1:2-3 NIV
God loves us in sickness and in health. Sometimes we don’t know why we have had to endure periods of illness, but we often end up appreciating what God does for us even more after experiencing hardships.
When we are healthy, we can praise Him. When we are healed, we can shout for joy.
Good health is precious and we can be grateful for it. When we take responsibility for our health and deliberately plan nutritious meals, exercise, and pray continually, the Lord rewards us with more energy and thankfulness. Amen.
Glory ye in His holy name: Let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. Seek the LORD and His strength, Seek His face continually. Remember His marvellous works that He hath done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth; O ye seed of Israel His servant, Ye children of Jacob, His chosen ones. – 1 Chronicles 16:10-13 KJV
When we find ourselves making a list of why this season of our life is particularly difficult for us to take on even one more thing, we must remind ourselves what our God has given us. He is all-powerful and all-knowing. His works are nothing short of marvelous.
We can list our problems when we pray, and of course He wants us to lay down all our burdens before Him, but we must not forget to praise Him for the strength He gives us to overcome them. Amen.
