VIDEO Defeating the Fear of Disease

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. Revelation 21:4

Medical science has made it possible for humans to live longer. But ask the average senior citizen if that excites them and the answer may be, “Yes and no.” Yes, we want to live longer but not while battling a disease. Disease remains a potential source of fear for all humans, regardless of age.

But does it need to be? We know all of creation has been impacted by sin. When creation malfunctions or begins to break down, we shouldn’t be surprised. We know death is coming for all. But we need not be afraid of death or any disease that may hasten its arrival. Rather, we should echo the apostle John’s prayer: “I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health” (3 John 2). Health is a desire we should pray for and work toward, while leaving the answer to God.

One deadly condition we can eliminate today is fear! Fear is not from God (2 Timothy 1:7). Live well, pray well, and be well—one day at a time.

The destined end of man is not happiness, nor health, but holiness.  Oswald Chambers
