Today, we are continuing our devotions with the 11th chapter in The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian: His Health.
"I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; surely I will heal you." - 2 Kings 20:5
My Thoughts: This chapter hit home for me. My husband is pretty healthy and physically fit. He works outside and I know any weight he puts on in the winter months will fall off like water during the summer months. It's just not fair! So I recently started working out 2 to 3 times a week. It's HARD. I pray for motivation on a daily basis. But I also worry about my husband's health. "Your husband's health," says Stormie, "is not something to take for granted, no matter what is age or condition." (pg. 97) I don't want to be a widow again. I pray God keeps my husband healthy so we can live a long and happy life together. We serve a healing God, but we have to remember that ultimately God has the final say in the health of our spouses. As hard as it is to accept, we have to give God that privilege "without resenting, faulting, or getting angry with Him" because He says there is a time for everything, even a time to die (pg. 98).
