Often it’s better to be held by God than to be healed by God. (Christian George, historian and professor)

No one likes to be sick. When we are, we are willing to try almost anything to be restored to health. Many will pray, asking God for healing. People of faith, however, have learned that healing is not always in their best interest. Prayer and trusting God in the hard times can bring a richer relationship with the “Great Physician.” Pray and trust God.

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to [heal me]. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:8-9).
