691 The Onset of Illness Is God’s Love


Almighty God, the Head of all things,

wields His kingly power from His throne.

He rules over the universe and all things,

and He’s in the act of guiding us on the whole earth.

We shall at every moment be close to Him,

and come before Him in quietness, never missing a single moment,

and with lessons for us to learn at all times.

Everything, from the surrounding environment

to people, events, and things, all exist by permission of His throne.

Do not on any account let grievances arise in your heart,

or God will not bestow His grace upon you.


When sickness befalls, this is God’s love,

and surely His kind intentions are harbored within.

Though your body may undergo a bit of suffering,

entertain 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 again and again and do not give up,

and God will illuminate you with His light.

How was Job’s faith?

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.

So long as you still have one breath, God will not let you die.


We have within us the resurrected life of Christ.

Undeniably, we lack faith in the presence of God:

May God put true faith within us.

Sweet indeed is the word of God! God’s word’s potent medicine!

It puts to shame devils and Satan!

Grasping the word of God gives us support.

His word acts fast to save our hearts!

It dispels all things and sets all at 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, sure of foot and worry-free.

If man harbors timid and fearful thoughts,

it is because Satan has fooled them,

afraid that we will cross the bridge of faith to enter into God.

Satan is trying in every way possible to send us its thoughts.

We should at every moment pray for God to illuminate us with His light,

at every moment rely on God to purge Satan’s poison from within us,

practice how to come close to God within our spirit at every moment,

and let God have dominion over our whole being.
