Today we will be dealing with 10 Bible verses you must not forget when you are sick. When we are sick, the only thing that comes to mind is how we can get healing. Sickness is a terrible thing. Sometimes it is special kind of temptation and trial that a believer had to go through, remember the story of Job?. Sickness is filled with so much pain and sadness. I pray that none of us shall fall sick in the name of Jesus.
However, if you are sick, here are 10 Bible verse you must not forget.
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
There is healing in praises. When we praise God, we get healed from all manner of illnesses or diseases. You must also remember that the effectual prayer of the righteous avail. Little wonder the scripture admonish that the sick person should call for the elders of the church, let them pray over him and annoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.
You must not forget that annointing breaks the yoke. When a man is annointed, the yoke of sickness is destroyed.
fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Sometimes when we are sick, we get scared. Sometimes we do not know what to do. Especially when we have taken drugs and it seems the pain or sickness won’t just go away. Always know that God is with you even in that terrible sickness and He will help you out of it.
That sickness will not overcome you, when you remember this, it gives you strength against the sickness.
And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
Remember that for without faith it is impossible to please God. He that will receive from God must believe that He is God and He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. When you pray with faith, sickness will dissappear. God will forgive any sin that is causing sickness in your life and you will be healed.
However, before that, you must confess your sins. Remember the book of proverbs says he that hide his sin will not prosper but he that confess them shall find mercy. Confess your sin, pray with faith and you will be healed from that sickness.
O LORD my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me. O LORD, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.
The lord is our present help in the time of trouble. When the trouble of life comes raging at us, we must not be weary to cry for help, our help will come from the Lord. Remember that God is the one who can restore good health. Do not run helter skelter to places where you can’t find help, take your burden to the lord in prayers.
As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
The devil might try to play a fast one on you when you are sick. You may have a terrible feeling that your sickness won’t go away. This may create an unpleasant fear in your heart.
Know this and know peace, God will show you mercy. If our earthly father acts in the right capacity to show compassion when we need one, so also is our heavenly father.
The LORD sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness you restore him to full health.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
God is our comforter. He has the ability to comfort us in our time of trouble. Despite the terrible pain of sickness, your heart will find peace in the Lord if you can trust the lord and leave everything to Him to handle.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Your soul needs nothing short of rest when you are sick. You just need something that will take the pain away and give you sound rest. Many can’t even remember the last time they had good night sleep due to pain that won’t go away. The scripture says, come to me all you that labour and are heavy laden, I will give you rest. Now you know the right place to find rest, go to the lord in prayers.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
You are like a gold that is going through the fire. When gold in it raw form is processed, it comes out of the furnace as a treasure to be cherished. So is God preparing you for something great. There is a great joy in knowing that all things work together for good for those that love God.
This present pain is nothing compared to the joy that is about to be unveiled.
Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”
God always want to show Himself as the king. When you are in trouble, call upon the lord and you shall be saved.
