Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Should I take that Aspirin?
Is it lack of Faith to Take this Aspirin?
This happened many years ago,
and all morning I had been throwing up because the flu had hit me hard, my head hurt and I
ached all over.
As I lay in my bed
contemplating if I should take an aspirin, the telephone rang.
Reaching over to the bed
table I retrieved the phone and a voice ofone of the boys from church said, “How are you doen?”
My reply was, “Not so good,
this flu is beating me up.”
His sweet voice, said, “Well
just resist it in Jesus Name.”
My answer was, “I am
resisting it, but I am resting in bed while I resist.”
Then I got up, took an
aspirin, some vitamins and prayed that it would help bring relief.
I do believe in resisting
evil, and also praying, but usually resisting must be done before the thing jumps
on you and gets a hold.
There are times when you simply take
the medicine and pray that it will help.
We don’t drink wine here at
our house, but Paul once said, “Take a little wine for your stomach.”The wine was used like a medicine.
A merry heart is like
medicine and also God’s medicine is his Word. It is bread and living water to our soul.
We can fill our mind and our
mouth with his spoken word and we will not need to lie in that bed as long as
When Jesus came into a sick
room, he took the person by the hand and they arose and got something to eat.
May we feast on the Word of
God and take up our bed and walk.
