Shall I Recover?. How Christians Should Look At: Accidents Illnesses Our Body Death. Shall I Recover?. We all have concerns for health and survival. Ahaziah – Fears the outcome, but does not inquire of God.
One day Israel’s new king, Ahaziah, fell through the latticework of an upper room at his palace in Samaria, and he was seriously injured. So he sent messengers to the temple of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, to ask whether he would recover.
2 Kings 1:2
But the angel of the Lord told Elijah, who was from Tishbe, “Go and meet the messengers of the king of Samaria and ask them, ‘Why are you going to Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, to ask whether the king will get well? Is there no God in Israel?’” 2 Kings 1:3
And Elijah said to the king, “This is what the Lord says: Why did you send messengers to…the god of Ekron, to ask whether you will get well? Is there no God in Israel? ... since you have done this, you will never leave the bed on which you are lying, but you will surely die.”
2 Kings 1:16
As Jesus…was surrounded by the crowds. 43And there was a woman in the crowd who had had a hemorrhage for twelve years. She had spent everything she had on doctors and still could find no cure. 44She came up behind Jesus and touched the fringe of his robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped. Luke 8:43-44
“Who touched me?” Jesus asked. Everyone denied it, and Peter said, “Master, this whole crowd is pressing up against you.” But Jesus told him, “No, someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.”
When the woman realized that Jesus knew, she began to tremble and fell to her knees before him. The whole crowd heard her explain why she had touched him and that she had been immediately healed. “Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” Luke 8:47-48

By Jocossa Burson
Sometimes I cry for a lot of different people and a lot of different reasons.
I cry for Doug, who was gone before his daughter graduated 8th grade.
I cry for Jeremy, who’s life took a 90 degree turn when they found cancer.
I cry for Chris who will go through life without a father.
I cry for knowing, honestly, that we all will die.
I cry for soldiers, who are far away from home.
I cry for prisoners, who are hurt and alone.
I cry for the nice, because they will go through tough stuff;
And the naughty, because their road will be rough.
I don’t cry for me, because I’ve a wonderful sight.
Jesus, my King, will carry me through.
If He’s not your Lord, I cry for you, too.
