February 11, 2021 THE CURE for Dis-Ease - Laura Harris

Many moons ago I remember a pastor preaching on the dis-Ease we all have. Yes, we live in a fallen world and are born with a sin nature. She went on to explain that we seem to have the innate ability to worry. Which leaves us with a dis-Ease, not at ease, stressed.

Even the most ardent believer has times where they question:

How will I pay the rent/mortgage, electric bill, or food this month?

What happens next? Will I be activated to serve in the military?

What kind of world am I leaving to the children/youth, my kids, grandchildren?

How will I be able to retire?

This is the dis-Ease the pastor was talking about.

Instead of focusing on the question/problem and having dis-Ease, worry, and stress, we are to focus on our Healer, Redeemer, Savior!

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, so that in due time He may exalt you. 7 Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 8 Be sober-minded and alert. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in your faith and in the knowledge that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kinds of suffering.” 1 Peter 5:6-9

I have found when I realize I am in the midst of dis-Ease that if I remember to be thankful for everything - God pulls me out of the pit, heals my dis-Ease. Is that easy? Not always, but like anything we desire to overcome or become accomplished in, we must practice.

Some days I may say "thank you, Lord" for waking me this morning and giving me breath, vision, and the ability to touch and feel. Other days I may be able to immediately bound from bed and sing a song of thanksgiving. (Ok, so more likely I am somewhere in between just breathing and bounding.)

“Pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thess 5:17-17)

Without ceasing, continually – pray!

Thank you, Lord for you’re the cure to dis-Ease!
