Leave the Results to God
Learning to deal with a chronic illness includes leaving the results to God. Following doctor’s orders on diet, rest, exercise can seem futile when we don’t see the results we expect.
When living with a chronic illness, we may feel we cannot do anything for God. Today’s verse sheds light on these thoughts.
1 Corinthians 15:58 (KJV), “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, 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.
Pray Using Scripture
- Heavenly Father, help me to be steadfast in my trust and reliance on you.
- Lord God, help us to be immovable in my faith as I cling to you in my battle against my chronic illness.
- Jehovah, help me to always be abounding in the work of the Lord as long as I have breath and after I have breathed my last let my legacy continue to point others to Jesus.
- Thank you for reminding me that my labors on your behalf are not in vain.
