Formerly titled Thy Will Be Done, this collection of daily biblical reflections will encourage anyone facing sickness or an uncertain future.
These sixty short daily reflections, each based on a verse from the Bible, will guide a believer facing serious sickness – and his or her family – to a rock-solid faith and trust in the will of God. With confidence in the healing power of God and the possibility of miracles, the Blumhardts, a father-son team of pastors renowned for their healing ministry, point us away from our troubles and toward a Creator who is supremely wise and good and wants the best for each of us.
In a world where medical advances seem to promise a cure for everything, it’s tempting to believe that we can live free of pain. But we know that even the best medicine cannot extend life forever or solve the riddles of physical and emotional illness. How, then, to respond to the inevitability of suffering? And how to help those who live in fear of disease to conquer their daily worry about their diagnosis? What better place to turn than to these words of comfort and hope drawn from the Word of God?
As Rick Warren writes in his foreword, “the Blumhardts remind us that physical healing is not God’s greatest answer to prayer.…Whatever circumstance you are facing right now, this book of daily readings will help you focus on a closer relationship with Jesus, our one true spiritual healer.”View Table of Contents
Several years ago, I was diagnosed with cancer. As with most folks I sat next to in treatment, we ached – in body, sure, but also in our souls – for good news. Sometimes, we heard it from doctors. Sometimes we didn't. But I know now that the message I wanted to hear is the clear message Blumhardt is giving us in this little book of meditations.
