I always think of James 4:15, which says, “What you ought to say is, ‘If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.’” So, with that in mind: If the Lord wants me to, I will live and write these books that dissolve spiritual discouragement for people who are waiting for healing that hasn’t yet come.
I have met some Jesus-followers who are having the struggle of their lives with their health, and at the same time, their spirits are taking a beating. They have questions, disappointment that is difficult to express, and a feeling that the pat answers they’ve heard about suffering don’t go deep enough to bring them comfort or resolution. They wonder how their reality reconciles with the truth of God’s love for them.
I’ve been there, and I want to help lift their spiritual load by shining a light on some truth from God’s Word that can help give them clarity and set them free from spiritual discouragement.
David took down the giant Goliath with one stone aimed at the right spot. I believe God is still in the business of putting the right stone in the right hand at the right time, and that he wants to do that for us–take down giants of spiritual oppression in our lives.
For a while I talked about my next project as being one book, but it has actually turned into more than one. Right now I’m focused on three. I envision them being three stones that you can slingshot into the forehead of spiritual oppression, taking down the discouragement that can come with unremitting health challenges. That’s my dream for your experience with the books I’m writing. And that’s what I’m praying they’ll be for you and for many people with chronic illness.
