I met an extraordinary young man earlier this week. He came into the world on May 15.
This morning (Friday) he will have surgery on his heart.
His young parents are clinging to Jesus. They are the very picture of ‘sorrowful, yet always rejoicing.’
I was humbled to be in their presence at the hospital and grateful God gave me the opportunity to pray for and with them. Would you join me in praying for him today?
And I was amazed at how much God has given to us in the common grace of medicine, medical technology and trained medical personnel. They know what is wrong with this boy’s heart. And they know how to address the problem. And they have done it many, many times.
But they don’t know what God knows. He knows how and why he made this boy, he knows this boy’s days, and he loves this boy more than anyone. How sweet it is to cling to hope here, in the one who knows all, commands all, and has given us many gifts, like medical care.
After seeing this young family, I watched this video, thanks to Abraham Piper and his blog, 22 Words.
I was just amazed at this as well. God has made us far more complicated than I can begin to comprehend!
Thank you, Lord, for letting me see and feel a bit of your extraordinary abilities today! Truly, we can rest in you and all the promises you have given us because you are able to do everything you have said you will do.
