So the sisters sent word to Him, saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.” John 11:3 NASB
One of the biggest temptations when you or someone you love falls sick is to think that God is mad at you or doesn’t love you. Beloved, don’t fall into that lie! Let this verse, as well as the trials of Job, David, Joseph, Abraham and thousands of others in Scripture and out, be a reminder that sickness and devastation sometimes fall on those the Lord treasures the most.
His love toward you is constant and because you chose the Lord Jesus, it will never be taken away. Ever. Though things in this life will try to come against your belief of His love, don’t be swayed. God is good.
No matter what comes against you, including any obstacle to your health, He will use it to bring you and others nearer to Him. He will use it to refine your faith and bring His glory in your life. Trust His love. It is greater than any other power or fear on earth and Love never fails (Romans 8:38-39, 1 Corinthians 13:8).
