Almost all of the past few days has been spent in bed, which is certainly not usual for me. Whenever I was able, I would read and pray but it was infrequent. Then, this afternoon I was reminded of school days when a teacher would give us a “pop quiz”; not because we were being punished or she was angry but to see if we were understanding what we had been reading and studying. Without a doubt, the realization hit that had been going on with me. This understanding cut through the mesmerism of sickness like a sword! This led to Psalm 139:23-24 which reads, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Yes, I needed to not give in to the thought of sickness, but know absolutely I was made in the image and likeness of God. He is the only creator there is and knows nothing of sickness, nor could I. Definitely wanted to pass this test so I wouldn’t have to re-take it.
