If we go to a doctor and learn we have a terminal illness, what would we do next? Call City of Hope? Call Mayo Clinic? Book a flight to a Benny Hinn Crusade? Drive to the closest healing room? Call for a prayer meeting? What?
No one wants to consider these questions, but the odds are that many of us will face such situations during our lifetimes. Shouldn’t we at least prepare ourselves ahead of time?
Just so you know: I’m not against doctors, nurses, and hospitals. I’m not against Benny Hinn nor am I against the healing room ministries nor am I against prayer meetings.
In those days, King Hezekiah was sick and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, went to him and said to him, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Set your house in order, for you shall die and not live.'” (2 Kings 20:2)
King Hezekiah was thirty-nine years old at the time, had been king of Judah for fourteen years, and according to scripture “had done what was right in the sight of the Lord.” So, what did Hezekiah do after he heard the bad news?
Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall and prayed to the Lord, saying, “Remember now, O Lord, how I have walked before You in truth and with a loyal heart and have done what was good in Your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly. (2 Kings 20:3)
Hezekiah turned away from Isaiah and the other people in his room at the time and sought the Lord. He knew he had standing before the Lord because to the best of his ability he had walked in faithfulness to Him.
The result: the Lord added fifteen years to King Hezekiah’s life.
My prayer today:
O Lord, help us American believers to trust in You with all of our hearts, to not trust in our own understanding, to acknowledge You in all of our journeys, to not be wise in our own eyes, to fear You, and depart from evil so that we will have healing for our bodies and strength for our bones. (Based on Proverbs 3:5-8)
Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for new revelations on healing and deliverance for Americans NOW.

Jesus and Father GOD has done this for me, too. Last year or the year before. He is sooo merciful!
Thanks. He is so merciful. God bless you.
Awesome , Mr. Larry. I have gone to others before too, but hope that I will always pray myself first. God bless you!
What if all of our options disappeared and we only had God. This could happen here in America. God bless you.
Though I haven’t faced terminal illness, I have had a couple of chronic illnesses for the past 15 yrs.
My first inclination was to research all the medical info I could find, still do.
But what Daddy taught me was that it is less important what choice we make than it is that it be the one He tells us to follow.
If we don’t hear His voice that is where to start. If we do, seeking Him to direct is the solution.
Of course, seeking His heart is the answer to how any choice in any arena of life should be conducted. “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.”
I will be healed and will heal others. I will also raise the dead. Of these things I have no doubt. In the meantime I must keep my heart always toward Him.
All in all I think we are saying the same thing.
Thanks for your input. God bless you.
