Devotionals on When Illness Strikes
As we grow older, illness gets more common. Yet, few Christians have carefully thought through God’s guidance on this prior to falling ill. The spanner of illness disrupts our way of life but also opens the door to opportunities like reconciliation. What does the Bible say to us about responding to illness? There is a bewildering range of information in the church scene: From artificial stoicism to declarations that healing is a lottery ticket waiting to be cashed in.
As we prayerfully ponder over this topic this week, may it help us to know God a bit better, prepare us to handle illness slightly better, be it in our own lives or in the lives of our loved ones and those whom God allows us the privilege of ministering to.
