Della Devotional- Sickness

As some of you may know, my dad has been pretty sick lately. He has had a rough couple of years. One illness has led to another. It has really taken a toll on him and the rest of the family. Over the weekend, he didn't feel good at all. I figured I would find some scriptures on sickness. We need the uplifting and I'm sure you could use it as well.







Psalm 30:2 - O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

Luke 17:15- And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God.

James 5:14- Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

James 5:15- And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up: and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

Psalm 103:3- Who forgiveth all thine iniquites; who healeth all thy diseases;

Mark 1:31- And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up: and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.

Isaiah 53:5- But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

2 Corinthians 12- And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power if Christ may rest upon me.


Jeremiah 30:17- For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.



It certainly can be difficult to accept some of the sorrowful twists and turns that life brings our way. We may never understand the reasons for our particular trials this side of eternity, but one thing is clear – for those who love God, trials work for them, not against them (Romans 8:28). Moreover, God will give us the strength to endure any trial (Philippians 4:13). He wants us to trust and depend on Him. How we react to our trials, including the trial of sickness, reveals exactly what our faith is like. Sometimes it is hard to keep the faith but we must. God has a plan for everyone and everything. We must trust in him. His ways are far greater than ours. I'm glad he is the one who is in control.
