He rescues me

Psalm 91:3 For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease.

Cancer. Stroke. Heart attack. Meningitis. Leukaemia. Asthma. Diabetes. Swine flu. The list of deadly diseases goes on. If you want to strike fear in the heart of man, mention the possibility of these deadly diseases.

Isaiah 65:23 (CEV) Their work won’t be wasted, and their children won’t die of dreadful diseases. I will bless their children and their grandchildren.

As a mother of young children, there is nothing worse than a sick child. My mother suffered from bronchiectasis from age two to thirty-two. She was not expected to live beyond forty. The sickness caused chronic pain and breathlessness. It was normal for her to cough up blood.

A dreadful disease, but for the healing power of Christ. At a healing crusade in 1984, my mother received healing. She was rescued from the fierce illness of bronchiectasis.

In the five short years of my son’s life, he has been threatened with asthma and pneumonia. Words spoken by doctors sent emotions of fear through my heart. Steadfast, I applied the Word of God: my children are protected from destructive diseases.

To the praise of His grace, all signs of asthma have vanished and pneumonia has never come near his body. The Lord rescued him.

If your life is terrorised by disease, claim God’s promises to you. Faith comes from the Word. Continue to stand.

I give God glory for His preservation of my family thus far, and continue to stand on the promise of protection from disease in the future. The Most High is faithful to rescue and protect.
