Daily Words of God: Entry Into Life | Excerpt 374
, the Head of all things, wields His kingly power from His throne. He rules over the universe and all things and He is guiding us on the whole earth. We shall often be close to Him, and come before Him in quietness; never shall we miss a single moment, and there are things to learn at all times. The environment around us as well as the people, matters and objects, all are permitted by His throne. Do not have a complaining heart, or God will not bestow His grace upon you. When sickness happens it is due to God’s love and His good intentions are surely behind it. Even when your body endures suffering, take no ideas from Satan. Praise God in the midst of illness and enjoy God in the midst of your praise. Do not lose heart in the face of illness, keep seeking and never give up, and God shall shine His light to you. How faithful was Job? Almighty God is an all-powerful physician! To dwell in sickness is to be sick, but to dwell in the spirit is to be well. If you have but one breath, God will not let you die.
The life of the resurrected Christ is within us. We really lack faith in the presence of God, and may God put true faith within us. The word of God is sweet indeed! God’s word is potent medicine! Put to shame the devil and Satan! If you grasp God’s word you will have support and His word will quickly save your heart! It dispels all things and sets all in peace. Faith is like a single log bridge, those who cling abjectly to life will have difficulty in crossing it, but those who are ready to sacrifice themselves can pass over without worry. If we have timid and fearful thoughts, we are being fooled by Satan, which fears that we will cross the bridge of faith to enter into God. Satan devises every way possible to send us its thoughts, we should always seek out the light that God shines to us, and we must always rely on God to purify us from Satan’s poison. We shall always be practicing in our spirits to come close to God. We shall let God have dominion over our whole being.

The Onset of Illness Is God’s Love
Almighty God, Head of all things, wields kingly power from His throne, ruling over all things, guiding us on this earth. Come before Him, learn at all times. All people, objects and matters are all permitted by God’s throne. So if sickness befalls, God has good intentions. Don’t complain, His grace He’ll bestow. Even if the body suffers, Satan’s ideas you can’t keep. Praise God during illness. Don’t lose heart or give up. God will shine His light when you seek. God will shine His light when you seek.
Think of Job, how faithful he was. God is a powerful doctor. Dwell in sickness, you’re sick. Dwell in spirit, you’re fine. If you breathe, God won’t let you die. Resurrected Christ’s life is in us, but we really lack faith in God. May He put the faith in us. All His words are so sweet. God’s word is medicine for all. God’s word is medicine for all.
Shame the devil and shame Satan. God’s word quickly will save our hearts. God’s word is our support. It dispels all bad things. It sets everything in peace. Faith is like a single log bridge. The coward cannot get across. But those who sacrifice, they are able to pass. Satan fools, with timid thoughts. Satan devises many ways to try to send us its bad thoughts. Often pray for God’s light, that He’ll cleanse our poison. Come close to God, let Him rule us all. Come close to God, let Him rule us all.
