The Upper Room Devotional For 28th October 2022

I can do all things through him who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:13 (NRSV)

Since 2004 I have suffered from chronic pain due to an injury to my left leg. I have visited many doctors and tried various treatments and medications, but nothing has helped. I have difficulty walking due to my injury, and I often feel depressed and dejected. I wonder, Why am I suffering?

My wife, Sushma, has prayed earnestly for my healing for several years. My family members and many other people are also praying for me. And I have prayed too, but with no change to my physical condition. However, as Paul writes, “[The Lord’s] grace is sufficient.”

I face many hardships due to my leg, but I can still get to work and do most of my routine tasks. Sometimes I am even able to forget my injury. I know these graces come from God’s goodness, and his mercies are new every morning (see Lam. 3:23).

Maladies can make us weak physically, but faith can make us strong. When we depend on the Lord, we find new strength. Thank God for the grace and strength we find in Christ.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Merciful God, thank you for your strength and mercy which never fail us. In Jesus’ holy name we pray. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
People living with chronic pain
