And, let me say something real quick, so that you do not misread what I am conveying here. My heart is that we should be praying for these young ones in order that God would heal them. It is crucially necessary. But, we need to be asking God what He wants to accomplish through these little ones. Really, our desires and wants should not be at the forefront of our minds when we are praying for these sweet children. Instead, the magnification of God's glory should most definitely be invading our minds. Will His glory be more magnified in their healing or will His glory be more magnified in their weakness? Lord, what do you want to accomplish in their lives? Since our thoughts reach a minuteness of finite thinking over against the magnitude of God's infinite mind, which is completely inconceivable from our perspective, we need to ask God what is best for the child. He knows what is best. How is God's glory going to reach its maximum? It will either be through her healing or through her suffering. And, we need to accept the reality of God's answer no matter what the outcome is. It may not be easy, but God will be with us to the end.
In relation to this post, I came across this video a couple years ago and every time I watch it I begin to tear up. God chose to glorify Himself through this little one in his suffering and he is resting safely in the arms of Jesus. No more pain, no more suffering..... joy everlasting. Enjoy with caution because it will make you cry.
