Our verse of reference in Job 2 is:
“Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil. And he still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason.”” (Job 2:3 NIV).
Integrity despite the disease. – Modern medicine can say that the disease that Job has was cancer since the Biblical text says it was “evil”. Cancer along with other diseases are some of the most difficult to heal, they cause pain and suffering, both to patients and families. Dear brother and sister, my wish is that the diseases we may face, may make us appreciate life more, dependent more on God, and identify more with the people who are suffering because of different test in life.
Loving father, extend your arms to comfort those who are suffering from diseases, may their faith be strengthened by your presence. We also ask you to heal the sick, eradicate selfishness and promote reconciliation among us. In the name of Jesus, amen.
