God does one way or another

Passing through a severe trial sometime back, I felt it difficult to go to church and conduct Bible study and preach. I skipped my assignments for a Friday (the day of rest in the gulf state that I work in) informing the Pastor in charge and a good friend of mine that I would be resting for a couple of weeks. Prayer, praise and bible meditation continued, so also a bit of sulking because things were not really pleasant on several fronts.

The next day morning, I received an audio message on Whatsapp from a friend of mine residing in another gulf country. It was a short message by a Christian minister and what he said was this....Traffic police have to do their jobs whatever the season be...the sun may beat down upon the them or it may be stormy weather. A lot of lives depend on their directing the traffic showing the right signals or using whistles, keeping trouble at bay; so also a Christian minister has to go about doing his duties whatever pressing personal situations he may encounter in his life. There may come challenges, but they need to be faced head on and the Lord will grant grace to overcome them.

I knew that the Lord Jesus himself had sent me the message through another servant of his and I shelved my plans of taking a break. God speaks in one way or another, if we are keen on listening.

Don't lose your own leg

A far relative of mine was bedridden for a couple of months, one of his leg bones being infected after an accident. The wound was oozing pus profusely and not healing despite the best of antibiotics and supportive treatment. I happened to visit him as someone asked me to check the wound and opine regarding the management. I did as requested of me, opining regarding the case and left after praying for him as he was in pain and I thought praying was appropriate as I was a Christian minister.

Thereafter I visited him several times as I stayed close to the hospital where he was admitted and prayed for him regularly before I left after inquiring the progress of his illness. The wound was no better and things were getting worse. During those months, one night I saw a dream. In the dream, I was on a hospital bed with one of my legs propped up on pillows and I was suffering from the same disease that my relative was suffering from. He was not healed either and was lying on the bed next to me. The dream was confusing and it took a while for me to interpret it and the revelation came after I spent quite a few hours in prayer.

Some sicknesses are punishments from God for rebellion against him and these do not go away till God has dealt fully with the person; healing will come only if the person repents and cries out to God in his/her misery. Prayers will not bring healing because the root cause is rebellion against God. God was just showing me that my prayers were not going to bring healing to this person because he was unrepentant for whatever sins he had committed and still continuing in his rebellion; on the contrary there was a chance that I would also be afflicted of the same illness. It was not God's will that I keep praying for the healing of his sickness.

There are several causes of sicknesses coming to a person. It may be infections, it may be due to changes in weather, it may be due to satanic attacks or it may be just rebellion against God. The guidance of the Holy Spirit of God would help us discern how to go about praying for the sick and afflicted.
