Day 54 – The Lord Sustains

You Will Face Negative Thinkers

Learning to deal with a chronic illness includes overcoming negative thinkers. As you battle your chronic disease, you will face negative thinkers. 

Some people do not believe in God or prayer. They feel and say that prayer and Bible reading is a waste of time and energy. 

Other people may have a general belief in God but don’t believe he knows or cares about you. They may acknowledge a divine creation but don’t see God involved in everyday activities and life.

Today’s Bible verse reminds us some people think there is no help from God. The truth is there is hope in God. In fact, God is our ultimate hope.

Bible Verse

Psalm 3:2-6 (KJV), “Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah. But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.”

What the Verse Means

God is here today for us. He is our hope. God will sustain us as we face life’s challenges, including dealing with a chronic illness.

Pray Using Scripture

  • Thank you, Lord, for being my shield, glory, and the one that lifts my head. You are my ever-present help.
  • Thank you, Lord Jesus, for hearing my voice when I cry out to you.
  • Thank you, Heavenly Father, for sustaining me every day as I face my chronic illness.
