AUGUST 1, 2013 – NO MORE – When was the last time that you were sick or in pain? Has it been days, weeks, months, or possibly even years? I had a slight sore throat last night, which really surprised me because I am almost never sick. Working at the school I see a lot of sickness. Living in my own home I see a lot of sickness. And today I spoke with a dear friend of mine on the phone that is in the hospital having some test done. All of us are probably dealing with sickness, in some form or fashion; whether in our own home or knowing someone else who is ill. We live in a fallen world and we deal with infirmities. Paul cried out to the Lord three times for the thorn in his flesh to be removed but the Lord permitted it to stay in Paul’s life (2 Cor. 12:7-10). Paul did not lack the faith for his healing. But thanks be to God, there will come a time when all sickness and pain will be No More – God will no longer permit it! Rev 21:4-5 “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” (NKJ)
