Working Together for Good

By   •   February 1


We might never have had the songs of Fanny Crosby had she not been afflicted with blindness. George Matheson would never have given the world his immortal song, “O Love That Will Not Let Me Go,” had it not been for his passing through the furnace of affliction. The “Hallelujah Chorus” was written by George Frederick Handel when he was poverty-stricken and suffering from a paralyzed right side and right arm. Affliction may be for our edification and Christian development. Sickness is one of the “all things” which work together for good to them that love God. Don’t resent it. Don’t be embittered by it.

Why did God let me get sick? Read Billy Graham’s answer.

Prayer for the day

You do not make mistakes, Father. If sorrow comes into my life, let me use it to help others know about You.

    Remember what God told Paul when Paul prayed for the thorn to be removed; “My grace is sufficient for you.” God has a reason for everything that happens to all of us.
