God has many valuable promises for His people. In 1st Kings 8:56, King Solomon could praise God for His faithfulness.
Isaiah 26 3 might be taken as a praise for the sick, the people in need, or tempted.
Read Matthew 8: 14–17, it says, when Jesus came into Peter’s house, He saw Peter’s mother-in- law lying in bed with a fever. He touched her hand and the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on Him. When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to Him, and He drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick. This was to fulfil what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases. The Bible tells from this passage that Peter was married, because he (Peter) had a mother-in-law. We learn that Peter became one of the leading Pastors of the early church. See also Acts of Apostles 21:8–9 says, leaving the next day, we reached Caesarea and stayed at the house of Philip the evangelist, one of the Seven. He had four unmarried daughters who prophesied. Read also 1st Timothy 3:2 and 12. It says, now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach. A deacon must be the husband of but one wife and must manage his children and his household well.
Of course, the fact that Peter was married does not necessarily mean that all ministers (Pastors) have to marry. It only shows that they have a perfect right to do so if they wish. Actually, there are some advantages to being married. On the basis of the teaching of the Bible, we can neither forbid marriage nor require it for Christian ministers or anybody else for that matter.
Infact, the Ministers know from personal experience the problems which face families today. There is less danger of temptation in dealing with the opposite sex. And the minister has a family to give comfort and support in difficult times.
But being single or unmarried, he can live in less comfortable circumstances if necessary and he doesn’t have to spend time taking care of the needs of a family.
Although this matter of whether or not Christian Ministers ought to marry or no is important for us to know. It is not really the main road to the kingdom of God. See Luke 4:38–39, it says, Jesus left the synagogue and went to the home of Simon. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Jesus to help her. So He bent over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. She got up at once and began to wait on them.
Matthew 8:23–27 says, Then He got into the boat and His disciples followed Him. Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke Him, saying, Lord, save us! We’re going to drown! He replied, you of little faith, why are you so afraid? Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, what kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey Him!
Such sudden and violent storms often arise on the sea of Galilee because of its position between the hills.
The Lord saves them. For one reason of the other in our life, if we can have a little faith and pray, the Lord will save us from the storms in our life. There are some forces, either natural or not. Jesus will rebuke them and the result will be a complete calm. See John 1:3; it says, through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. Read also, Galatians 5:6, it says, for in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
