Why do people get cancer? Why do we have to be sick? Why, why , why?
Job 1 ————– Is the story about a man, a righteous man who feared the Lord. His name was Job. Job had everything taken away from him. His cattle , flocks , even his children. But he never cursed God. Think about it have you ever had a loved one get sick or die? Did you ask God why? Did you curse his name? We never want bad things to happen to us, but we have to remember this scene and how God is in control. Its says in Romans 8:28 And we know all things work together for good to them who love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. So if someone is sick or has cancer etc. Just remember God works for the good of those who love him. So God has a purpose he can take bad things and turn them into something good. Like someone getting saved or drawing closer to God. It also says in James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift comes from the father above. Why do we get sick? Why does God make us sick? He doesn’t. God does not make us sick. Sin does. When Adam and Eve disobeyed God sin came into the world. But, when sickness does come upon us God uses it for good. It says in Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.
Has a loved one ever died in your family? You morn and cry right? You should not cry about it forever. Like if a child dies, like an infant for instance it is really hard on you. But, instead of crying you should rejoice! Because that infant or child is in heaven. The bible says that all the children below the age of knowledge will go to heaven. What is the age of knowledge you ask? The bible does not say. But the age of knowledge is when your child starts to understand that he is a sinner and he needs Jesus. If your child can’t understand that yet then he is under the age of knowledge. So,don’t morn when a child or infant or anyone dies rejoice because if you know they were saved then they are in heaven. Don’t wait to tell your child or an adult about Jesus because you will never know when the Lord will call them home.
