Get Well with the Bible

Get Well with the Bible

A Bible rests in a pastor's hands

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak…those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.—Isaiah 40:29, 31 (NIV)

WE’RE IN THE midst of the flu season and chances are that you or someone you love has been sick lately. Don’t underestimate the power of your mind in promoting wellness. Pray, talk, and believe healthy healing thoughts; praise God for His healing power. Always take a positive view of yourself as healthy, vital, and vigorous; believe the power of the healing God is working in you. Several times a day, offer up a prayer of affirmation, reaching out to God for his healing and strength.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, I need Your divine comfort. Please help heal me. Give me courage to face tomorrow and wisdom to appreciate the blessings of friends and loved ones who care about me. Most of all, thank You for Your healing love which strengthens me and gives me peace.
