I was frequently sick this past week.
Day 1-2 I was consistently praying for healing.
Day 3-4 I began to question God. Had God heard my prayer? Why was He letting this sickness go on and on? Was there something wrong with my prayer?
Day5 I decided that I just had to believe in my praying. God heard me and had answered me. I had to keep reminding myself that God had answered me and my body was well in spite of the symptoms.
Day 6 (Repeat of Day 5’s efforts.) Plus a new idea came to me — Often having a disease does not bother us. Many times people walk around sick, sometimes seriously so, and do not know it. Yet once symptoms appear, then fretting, anxiety, fear, and even terror can set in.
To keep fear from settling within me I began asking the Father to take away the disease and remove the symptoms.
So I leave with these questions:
1. Do you think that we can be healed of a disease, but the symptoms can linger?
2. What do you do to keep yourself from distrusting or blaming God when you get sick?
