Recently I became very ill due to a bad allergic head cold. It lingered for about 3 weeks. I had fits of coughing and there was a lot of fluid in my inner ear. I was so tired of being sick and tired. I used all kinds of remedies to no avail. I finally thought to ask for prayer. What a difference! My ear was healed. No more sloshing inside my head. I could think about other things and have more peace in my spirit.
This time of year can be especially hard for some folks. It's dark early, there is pressure of high expectation from family. There is financial pressure. There may be more illness. It is a time of assessing how the year has gone. How does one cope?
Sometimes it's not physical illness. Things hit my subconscious and I am not sure what's troubling me, but my spirit is disturbed. I can become grumpy, fearful, aggitated and not fun to be around. We live in a physical world but there is also a spiritual world most of us cannot see that may be affecting or attacking us. To understand this and how to deal with it can bring us back into a state of peace and calmness.
Believers in Jesus who read His Word, pray and ask others to pray arte blessed beyond measure not to stay in the mud of confusion and discouragement or depression. He sets our feet on the Rock of Salvation.
So believe on the Lord Jesus and be saved from sickness, depression and whatever else is attacking. "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12
As we celebrate the season remember the Reason. Enjoy the music.
