Be self control and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him standing firm in the  faith because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings  (1peter 5:8-9 ).

God will never tempt anybody,  temptation comes when you are drown out of your own lust.  Whatever you are going through  is not common only for you other people suffers the same fate therefore don\’t  let your head down thinking your world is broken or yours is the worst situation. 
Read: Matthew 8:14-15 (KJV)
8:14 And when Jesus was come into Peter\’s house, he saw his wife\’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.
8:15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.

When Jesus came to Peter’s house in today’s Bible reading, He met his mother-in-law down with a fever. He touched her and she was healed instantly, and she then began to attend to their needs. This clearly tells us that Jesus does not tolerate sickness in our bodies. However, the question is, do you tolerate sickness? Some people are tolerant of things they should not accept. Tolerating sickness is telling that it is welcome in your body. Some people tolerate certain sicknesses that are traced to certain natural conditions. For instance, when a woman is pregnant, people expect her to go through morning sickness.  It’s what you tolerate. While this is mild for some people, it can be very tough for some others. Nevertheless, if you know your rights  in God you will use His word concerning every situation that is attacking your peace of mind and that\’s it as a spiritual Hebrew woman, stand in faith against any form of ill health, you will receive strength to go through pregnancy in good health and not in sickness. To do so, you must be strong in faith and tell sickness that it is not welcome because you have no room or space for it. 1st Timothy 2:15 says,

“Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.”

In other words, if you are truly a godly woman, you should not be taken down by the dangers of childbirth that affect ungodly women. Stand in faith and live holy, and your conception and delivery will be most pleasant!

Surely, He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows yet we considered him stricken by God smitten by him and afflicted.  But he was pierced for our transgressions,  he was crushed for our iniquities the punishment that brought us peace was upon him and by His wounds we are healed. ( Isaiah 53:4-5 ). 

In the same vein, some sicknesses are attributed to old age. An elderly man who was still quite active suddenly got up one day and realised he had difficultly walking. He tried some self-medication to no avail, and so he was taken to the hospital.  The doctor examined him and told him his sickness was as a result of old age. He was advised to just manage it with certain medicines. There are some people whose eyesight fail them due to old age, even as early as 60 years old. For a child of God, you can stand in faith, resist such sicknesses and enjoy good health all through your life. At 120 years old, when it was time to go to be with the Lord, Moses still retained the strength of his youth (Deuteronomy 34:7). Caleb also retained his strength at 85 years old and was able to fight and possess his own land appossion to him despite the presence of the giants (Joshua 14:10-11). If you stand in faith, what affects others will not be able to affect you. If you refuse to resist these sicknesses, you will become a victim just like everyone else. 

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the son of God, let us hold firmly to the  faith we profess for we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathise with our Weaknesses but we have one who has been tempted in every way just as we are yet was without sin. Let us approach the thrown of grace with confidence so that we  may receive mercy and find grace To Help Us In Time Of Need. (Hebrew 4:14-16 )

 Cheers!  Blessing
