The Lord will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from his bed of illness.
In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angle of his presence saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them… – Lord, the one you love is sick – My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ThereforeI will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me – I can do everything through him who gives me strength. – Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. – For in him we live and move and have our being – He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength – The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.
