Suffering in Unavoidable and Universal


Learning to deal with a chronic illness is learning the truth that suffering in unavoidable and universal.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Acts 14:22 (KJV), “Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.,”

What the verse means:

Confirming is better translated “Strengthening.” Acts 18:23 renders the word this was. The verse is given to strengthen us as Believers by encouraging us to keep the faith and reminding us that as followers of Christ will suffer many afflictions be we enter into the actual kingdom of God where Jesus Christ is King.

Praying using the verses:

  1. Heavenly Father, we pray for Your strength and for You to strengthen us as we face our chronic illness.
  2. Lord Jesus, help us to be strong and continue in our faith in You.
  3. Thank you for letting us know that we will face many trials and tribulations like health issues as Believers. We cling to You to walk through this time with us.
