“Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.” Proverbs 30: 5
Today Michael and I have an appointment with his radiologist who will give him the results of his recent brain scan. Before that, he begins another regimen of chemo, and on Thursday he will meet with two other doctors. We do not know if the news will be good or bad, but we trust in a God whose words are “flawless.” Through the mountains and the valleys of life, He walks with us to sustain us, protect us, encourage us, and love us. He is “a shield to those who take refuge in Him.” That is why in the midst of such sickness and strife we can have a peace that passes understanding. The peace that Christ gives is true, not manufactured. No pill or drink or psychiatrist can produce it. When we sit in that doctor’s office and receive news, He shields us from the arrows of fear and worry. Our confidence is not in a diagnosis or a CT scan, but our confidence is in a God whose love and mercy never fails.
