We’re living through a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic. Disease hunts us and sickness stalks us. Many have already fallen to this foe. Even if we haven’t lost our health, we’ve all lost something. We’ve lost school, graduations, businesses, money, church, friendship, vacations, and so on. It’s a fear-filled time and a tear-filled time.
But, sickness need not be only a curse and a loss. With God’s blessing, it can also be a time of blessing and gain by being a time of prayer and praise. In Psalm 30, David shows us the blessings of sickness by using sickness to pray and praise.
