Is There Any Sick Among You?

sethThe valleys of life are often preparing us to appreciate the mountaintops. If we never had problems, would we ever turn to God? Would we ever pray? Probably not.

There is a story in the Bible about a man who was blind. People asked Christ what sin had caused the blindness. Jesus answered, “Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.”

Recently a wonderful lady in our church struggled with a serious malady that kept her from regular activities. She made trips to the doctor with little success. It was a very discouraging time for her.

She came before our church at the close of the morning worship and requested prayer. The Bible says in 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.”

Weekly DevotionalOur church believes in the power of prayer. James 5:15 says, “And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up.”

Over the past couple of weeks, doctors suddenly found the solution to her situation. The same doctors that could not solve the problems in the past now rapidly had all the right answers. God has no issues with using doctors and healers to carry out His work.

This past Sunday, this same lady stood and gave glory to God for healing. What a powerful testimony to God and how He can work in our lives. If she had not gotten sick, we never would have experienced God’s power at work.

If you are facing dark days, turn to the Light of the world. Health may change and situations may change. God never changes.
