Morning Direction From Scripture 3-1-17

All who hate me whisper about me,
    imagining the worst.
“He has some fatal disease,” they say.
    “He will never get out of that bed!”
Even my best friend, the one I trusted completely,
    the one who shared my food, has turned against me.

10 Lord, have mercy on me.
    Make me well again, so I can pay them back!
11 I know you are pleased with me,
    for you have not let my enemies triumph over me.
12 You have preserved my life because I am innocent;
    you have brought me into your presence forever. Psalm 41:7-12

How does verse 10 rate for you as a reason to overcome sickness? Is it a legitimate reason? Do you think it is powerful enough? Do you think God honors this as a reason for healing?

  1. Verse 10 sounds like revenge is the motive and that’s never a good idea, for a host of reasons. But God in his Love and Mercy, desires to heal us–not see us sick; so if someone was determined to do all the good things they were advised to do, in order to regain health–I doubt God would hold “plans for payback” against them. And…I suspect He’d do all in His power to turn their hearts to such gratitude for healing that they’d abandon plans for payback/revenge.
