I developed a sore throat today and prayed for healing. Of course, the Lord does not always comply with our request of this sort right away. Then I realize that it's only with healing of the body that it is so. With healing of the soul, he never delays ~ that's because the soul exists forever and is so much more important than the body, which is here today and gone tomorrow. We repent for our sins and we are forgiven instantly. The Lord is most concerned about our souls ~ he wants us to be perfect, to be holy ~ starting right now; whereas the body can wait.
