We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord – 2 Corinthians 5:8.
Today, church sermon the pastor discussed the topic of healing. We often pray when we are stressed or need of a miracle for healing for others. The issue is some think God will in a blink of an eye heal them. While God certainly can do the impossible, but it doesn’t always go that way.
Yes, God is our ultimate healer. However, sometimes God calls our beloved ones our ourself home. Like the verse above, that there is no greater place to be with God in heaven. No one is out of God’s reach, but one must be open to His will.
Most of us would surely would rather avoid pain and sickness, but we can’t always. If we draw upon God’s help, then we can get through anything. God gives us confidence, so that no matter what we face He is with us each step of the way.
