Keep moving Forward when Trials Hit
Updated: Mar 22
Our trials can come in many forms such as sickness and disease. Sickness and disease are a part of our imperfect world and affect both righteous and unrighteous people. However, God wants to use suffering of all kinds, including sickness, to mature us spiritually and draw us closer to Him. And He can use sickness in our lives to refine us and strengthen our relationship with Him. We must remember that while the Father cares about our physical bodies, His primary concern is our spiritual growth. His goal is to conform us into the image of Christ.
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Whenever sickness hits us, it can be easy to get down. Don’t let sickness make you so bitter that you give up on your relationship with God. And certainly, keep praying for His hand to move in your life and bring recovery. You have His promise that complete healing will come one day, whether it is in this life or in eternity.
James 1: 2-4
2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
