November is getting away from us! Hopefully we will continue to get some 50 degree days. I hope your Thanksgiving was free from stress, but when people gather around a table these days, many conversations can become heated. At my house we stayed away from those conflicts, at least on Thanksgiving.
What a wonderful Savior we serve! Even while we were in our sin , He died for us. As my Pastor said yesterday, If we were the only ones on planet earth, He would have come to save our souls. It's not just our souls that prosper in God, because we cannot divide our bodies into different parts. We are complete, spirit, soul, and body. He came to redeem all of our being. Joy in our spirits, soundness in our souls, and health in our bodies.
Please don't think that I am judging you if you are sick. I have chronic sickness in my body, and I know some of you do too. My heart is often seeking God for perfect health, and I believe Him for it. It is HIs will, desire and purpose to heal us. I don't know why I have allergic reactions all year round, but I move on to the hope that is in Christ Jesus! Does it hamper my lifestyle? It surely does, but I move on. I refuse to let it rule me.
Maybe there is something today that is looming over your head, like an illness or a broken relationship. Take God's hand and let Him walk you out of it. You may not be healed, but you can surely not let it rule.
"I will extol the Lord at all times: his praise will always be on my lips. I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord and he heard me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:1-4
