No one looks forward to being ill. As much as possible we all want to be healthy all the time. Being a care-giver as a family member can be such an emotional journey and a draining one as well. I remember when my family took ill, I kept asking the Lord to keep me strong and healthy to be able to care for them.
As a mom, I don’t sleep well if my child has a simple cold. And I am sure so many of you can relate to this. We don’t want any of our family member to be sick even if it is the common cold. It is also Father’s desire that we be in health at all times. But does that mean that because we are Father’s children, we will never fall sick? No! Since we know what Father’s will is, we are confident that He will always heal us because by the stripes of Jesus, we are healed. So it is done already.
Therefore today, we would be asking Father and receiving from Him, this healing that He has made available to us through Jesus.
