DAILY READINGS: Ezra 10:1-44; Daniel 11:1-20; Revelation 6:1-17

I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee. Ex. 15:26
They waited not for his counsel: But lusted exceedingly…And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul…and the plague broke in upon them. Psalm 106:13-15, 29

These verses remind us that our health is in the Lord’s hands. There are times when ill health is given to glorify God. Then His grace is sufficient. But let us examine our heart to see if God is allowing sickness to turn us back to Himself or to teach us something new about Himself. —D. Pickup

See if there be some wicked way in me:
Cleanse me from ev’ry sin, and set me free. —Edwin Orr
