Questions in Life that have Answers in HIM

“For the life of a creature is in the blood…” Leviticus 17:11 (Our blood permits physical life; His blood heals and gives eternal life.)
“…by His wounds we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5 (The Greek word “iaomai” is used 28 times in the Bible, always meaning physical healing, including in the verse below.)

I feel so alone and afraid in fighting bad health and aging – Does anybody care about me?
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4
I haven’t lived a perfect life – in fact not even close! Will God and Christ forgive me and help me to conquer my personal health challenges?
“Praise the Lord, my soul, and never forget all the good He has done: He is the one who forgives all your sins, the One who heals all your diseases.” Psalm 103:2-3

What is the purpose of God in letting bad things happen to good people?
An old hymn, Firm Foundations, tells us, “When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie, My grace, all sufficient shall be thy supply; The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design, Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine.” Impure gold is heated to a degree that the impurities, or “dross,” floats to the top for removal, leaving only the purified gold. Through life challenges God removes the impurities in our lives to make us purified children of God and focused on God.
