Because I believe so strongly in Jesus’s power to heal, I’m going to take what feels like a risk and share a personal story with you. I do it only to bear witness to what I’ve experienced and to magnify the greatness of God. As a former pastor who has been at the bedside of many who were sick or dying, I realize that not all suffering, sickness, or disease is met with the same immediacy. Sometimes God heals us over time through the thoughtful care of a physician. Other times He takes us home, so that our healing can be complete. It is wise to leave the outcomes in His capable hands and rest in the assurance that He is with us through every season of our lives.
