Leave all your worries with him because he cares for you.
Be alert, be on watch! Your enemy, the devil, roams around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Be firm in your faith and resist him because you know that other believers in all the world are going through the same kind of sufferings. But after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who calls you to share his eternal glory in union with Christ, will himself perfect you and give you firmness, strength, and a sure foundation.
GNT – Keywords …“a little while”… God is not interested in how old we are, or how rich we are or what condition our body is in when we come before Him, but only that we have repented; He is not concerned about whether we died of a heart attack, cancer, in a train wreck or old age, but only whether our soul is in a state of health.
Therefore, don’t be afraid of sickness and death, but dread sin alone. Poverty, disease, insults, persecution, humiliation and death are only words; they have no reality for we, who are living for the Kingdom of Heaven.
Don’t beat yourself up because you’re sick, don’t think you lack Faith or have done something wrong, just think on the lives of the Righteous Job in the Old Testament and all the saints that serve God, not because they expect any kind of reward, either spiritual or material, but simply because they love Him.
The only reality is, this Life is Short, so Stand Tall, Stand on our Faith, Fight the Good Fight, Walk the Narrow Road, Be all you can be for Jesus because we Love Him.
