Prayer Devotional: Day 79

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. – Romans 10:9 NIV

In the past, I tried to live by example, but I very rarely said anything about God to other people unless they specifically asked me.

Declaring that Jesus is our Lord takes courage. Other people might not hold the same beliefs as we do, but what we can do is share how loving Jesus has changed our lives.

Despite all the scientific advancements and medical breakthroughs of today, not a single Nobel prize winner has figured out how to match the salvation that Jesus brings us. Salvation is a gift. We don’t have to try to replicate it; we can simply accept it. Amen.

Prayer Devotional: Day 74

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Marvellous are thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well. – Psalm 139:14 KJV

The Lord created our immune systems. Years ago, we did not understand how the immune system works to protect us from diseases.

Now, with the help of modern medicine, scientific breakthroughs, and increased awareness, we know that our immune systems are miraculous gatekeepers that protect us from harm.

The Lord created us perfect, but sin brought an element of chaos to our world.

I have many food allergies, which are a result of my overactive immune system, which identifies otherwise harmless foods as hostile.

For that reason, whenever I get a booster shot or introduce something unusual to my body, I am a little concerned about how my body will react.

By the grace of God, my Pfizer-BioNTech booster shot yesterday did not give me any adverse reactions other than a sore arm. God is good! It never ceases to amaze me how He attends to our needs. Amen.
