In yesterday’s post, “Sad News”, I wrote about how my friend inspires me by her walk of faith in a very difficult time. I wanted her to know that I had honoured her so I sent her a copy of the post. She emailed me back and thanked me but she did something else – she corrected me!
I had written that she was losing her battle with cancer, and she, justifiably, took exception to that remark. You see, she is not willing to accept and confess that she is losing. Despite any worldly evidence to the contrary, she is continuing to remain hopeful and have faith believing for her healing.
Surely that is the very definition of faith!
Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Eph 6:13 Therefore take to yourselves the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Having done all to stand in faith for her healing, she continues to stand in faith.
And even in her correction she continues to teach and inspire!
Luk 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth the good. …For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
I confess that I stand humbly and suitably corrected.
Please join me in prayer for her healing.
Jas 5:16 Confess faults to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous one avails much.
