In today’s world among the N1H1 flu shots controversy and health care reform and misdirection of politicians, I submit to you an attempt to keep us all on track in our daily lives. God is still in control!
Praise God in all things . Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. . . Yes, even when we’re sick and down, give praise unto Jesus.
Praise God when we’re sick? You bet. Being physically sick is good. Temperature is the body’s way of fighting off the invaders of our body. Thank you, Jesus, because you have fearfully and wonderfully made us . Our bodies work exactly like you have programmed them to work.
Since all truth is parallel, it is the same thing spiritually for when we are tempted, tried, and exposed to suffering; it is still Christ fighting off the invaders of our soul. Things go wrong naturally so we can fight the bad things in our spiritual system through Christ . As long as we keep Jesus in focus and in charge, Christ will fight off the invaders of our souls.
v9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
v10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. [2 Corinthians 12:9, 10 KJV]
Therefore, the next time we are physically sick, rejoice and praise God because we know that Christ is fighting on our behalf on the inside of us. When we are spiritually sick and down, rejoice and praise God, because we know that there are battles going on inside of us. We can and should pray, but the battle needs to rage on inside of us until Christ expels those invaders.
When we are physically sick, we go to the pharmacist and take an aspirin pill, and then rest in bed. When we are spiritually sick, we go to the Great Physician, take the Gos-pill, and then rest in Jesus.
 Eph 5:20 KJV
 Psalms 139:14
 (Hebrews 4:14-16)
