There was nothing my mind didn't try to cook up as what could be wrong with me, but in all of it, I continued to rely on God and on the power of the Blood of Christ that flows in my veins. I have always believed that no disease can survive in His Blood, so when all of me told me, you are sick, like seriously sick. This is no longer just fever or headache. It could be___ (and all those fierce and heavy duty throat diseases would follow); I continued to thrive in the peace that God showered me with. I remained calm and just waited to see what God would do.
I moved about with a difficulty to speak, eat and swallow (both saliva and water). After sometime, I went like, where is it? I rubbed against my throat and swallowed--no pain. I could speak again with ease and my voice was loading up. As I was still pondering where the __er__ went to, I heard this whisper in my heart,
As for you, you thought evil against me, but God meant it for good... - Genesis 50:20a, Amp.
Closely followed by,
For yet a little while and the evildoers will be no more; though you look with care where they used to be, they will not be found. - Psalm 37:10, Amp.
In my case, a gruesome sore throat thought evil against me, but God meant it for good. Here I was searching for the pain that awhile back was a thorn in my flesh, and it was all gone.
I don't know what it is that is bent on making your life be like hell for you, but one thing I do know is that all things work together and are fitting into a plan for good to and for those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose. (Romans 8:28).
If it had not been the Lord Who was on our side—now may Israel say—
If it had not been the Lord Who was on our side when men rose up against us,
Then they would have quickly swallowed us up alive when their wrath was kindled against us;
Then the waters would have overwhelmed us and swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us;
Then the proud waters would have gone over us.
Blessed be the Lord, Who has not given us as prey to their teeth!
We are like a bird escaped from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped!
Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
