Wed 11.3 You Never Let Go
Request:For Kara Gowan
Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head.
Then he fell to the ground in worship and said:
“Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
and naked I will depart.
The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away;
may the name of the LORD be praised.”
In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.
Though He slay me, yet will I hope in Him
I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD.
While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”
Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him.
2 Cor 12:7-10
...I was given a thorn in my flesh,...Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But HE said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for MY power is made perfect in weakness.”
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Ricardo 39:1 When I am weak...HE IS Strong. For HIS GLORY!
God doesn't always heal. But He still does. God allows suffering on a small scale sometimes and even tragedy sometimes and sometimes rescues us from it.
Your prescription is not the same as mine and is often not what you want but it is always what will keep you close to and dependent on Him.
Pray for Vivien, Mike and Julie Clardy's precious baby who I believe God wants to heal and make a testament to Life...which is what her name means!
Pray for folks like Kara who live thru illness with more JOY than some who live joylesly in perfect health.
Pray for my friend Jess Sagun who has endured physical pain and anguish longer than most of us could.
May Jesus be peace, strength and healing.
