Psalm 91:7 - A thousand may fall at your side, and 10,000 at your right hand; but it shall not come near u.
Your doctor or insurance agent may ask u, “Do u have a family history of cancer?” If u say, “Yes,” they will probably tell u that u might get some form of cancer too.
Now, if u are without God, u would probably agree with them and start worrying about your health. But u are not without God! In fact, His Word tells u, “A 1,000 may fall at your side, and 10,000 at your right hand; but it shall not come near u.” Therefore, even if u have a family history of cancer, & your family members have died of cancer, u can have the confidence 2 declare that it will not come near u!
My mother had this attitude. After a thorough medical check-up, the doctor was surprised & told her that she did not have high blood pressure or heart disease, although these two conditions have plagued her father & siblings. You see, my mother had already firmly declared that no deadly, family-related disease would come near her.
Praise God for my mother’s trust in God’s Word bcoz I am the generation after her! In fact, after my mother told me about the results of her check-up, I randomly opened my Bible only 2 read about Rahab the harlot who by faith “did not perish with those who did not believe”. (Hebrews 11:31)
Beloved, God wants u 2 know that even though u are in this world, u are not of this world. You belong 2 Him. You don’t have 2 get caught in dire situations along with the people of the world. Bcoz God is on your side, “He shall deliver u from the snare of the fowler & from the perilous pestilence”. (Psalm 91:3)
Even when it comes 2 generational diseases, u can boldly declare, “That disease stops here!” bcoz u have God and His Word. And when u believe God & His Word, u will see His promises come 2 pass for u — “A 1,000 may fall at your side, and 10,000 at your right hand; but it shall not come near u”!
