The picture is of me with the brace I wore from 4 years old to 5 1/2. I had a rare hip disease. God healed me! That infirmity taught me much! JESUS is my everything. The Doctors told me and my folks that I may never walk or run like the other kids! Look at what God did! God also just healed me of diabetes!!!! PTL!!!

READ TODAY’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL

March 28, 2020

BIBLE MEDITATION:

“And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore, most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me’”…

(2 Corinthians 12:9)

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

When Paul wrote that he “took pleasure in his infirmities,” he didn’t mean he was bragging about his sickness. Have you ever met anyone who brags about his sickness? You don’t dare ask how he feels, or he’ll give you an organ recital.

It wasn’t that Paul enjoyed poor health. But Paul learned his weakness could become a strength. God had a higher plan.

It is not God’s plan that we escape all trouble. Nor is it God’s plan that we merely “endure.” Rather, God wants to enlist your sickness. Your infirmity can be used to reveal His glory. It can be used for Christ’s sake.

ACTION POINT:

There’s nothing wrong with praying, “Lord, I want to escape this suffering.” Paul did—three times. Our Lord Himself in the Garden of Gethsemane asked the Father, “If it be possible, let this cup pass from Me.” But the Lord had a higher plan. So the first thing we ought to do when we hurt is pray, “Lord, take it away, please.” If He doesn’t, ask Him again and continue to ask Him until He tells you that He has a better or a higher plan.
