Leave the Results to God


Following doctors orders on diet, rest, exercise can seem futile when we don’t see the results we expect. When living with a chronic illness we feel we cannot do anything for God. Today’s verse sheds light on these thoughts.

Today’s Bible Verse:

1 Corinthians 15:58 (KJV), “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”

What the Verse Means:

Do what you can with what you have and leave the results to God.

Praying Using the Verse:

  1. Heavenly Father, help us to be steadfast in our trust and reliance on You.
  2. Lord God, help us to be immovable in her faith as we cling to You in our battle against our chronic illness.
  3. Jehovah, help her to always be abounding in the work of the Lord as long as she has breath and after she has breathed her last let her legacy continue to point others to Jesus.
  4. Thank you for reminding us that our labors on Your behalf are not in vain.
