Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
It is somewhat amazing to me how the entire planet is walking in the valley of the shadow of death at this time. I am not minimizing the dangers but I am saying that there is a hope. I was reading this this morning about John G. Lake and his adventures during the dread Bubonic Plague. Here is the excerpt:
He helped to buried the people who died from the Bubonic Plague. He did not wear or use anything to protect himself. However, he never contracted the disease. The doctors were amazed and when they ask him, he answered ““Brother that is the ‘law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.’ I believe that just as long as I keep my soul in contact with the living God so that His Spirit is flowing into my soul and body, that no germ will ever attach itself to me, for the Spirit of God will kill it.”
Instead of being fearful, he is full of faith. Instead of being absorbent and drawing everything to himself, his spirit repels sickness and disease. He encouraged them to do an experiment with him. So they took the foam that come out of the dead and put it under microscope. They can see that the germs are still alive after the person died. However, when they touched John G Lake’s hand, they died instantly.
He said, “That is ‘the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.’ When a man’s spirit and a man’s body are filled with the blessed presence of God, it oozes out of the pores of your flesh and kills the germs.”
Isn’t this amazing? It is the power of God at work! My friends, if you are sick or fearful, read the Word of God. Connect yourself to God and contact God’s law of life. Let the Word protect you.
I guess it all boils down to, “Where do we put our trust or fears? As for me, God’s word has caused me to defeat cancer, not once but twice and I do believe, “Faith in God” is the answer.
