Here's The Deal with Larry Tomczak "How Do We Deal With Demonic Attacks on Our Health and Bodies?"
A number of years ago I sat in an audience listening to TL Osborne the legendary evangelist. He
asked us to stand if we would give up our eyes for a million dollars. Not one person stood
realizing how much we take for granted.
Fifteen years ago I lost the sight in my left eye from a condition for which there is no treatment.
Recently I began experiencing similar symptoms in my right eye and was catapulted into the
possibility of total blindness. Please pray for miraculous intervention.
Jesus said, “the eye is the lamp of the body” (Matt. 6:22). Close your eyes for two minutes and
imagine what it’s like not to see. Of the five senses, which would be most devastating to lose?
Imagine the trauma of never seeing your children or grandchildren again; never driving, reading,
writing and seeing the light of day. It's a terrifying prospect.
No Sight or No Vision?
Helen Keller, who had no hearing or sight, told us, “The only thing worse than having no sight
is having no vision.” As we all experience the realities of aging, it’s imperative that to have a
biblically informed perspective on maladies we may face. Some have faith to live until 120 or can
purchase facial makeovers, injections and implants, but scripture tells us, “The outward man is
perishing, yet our inward man is being renewed day by day” (2 Cor. 4:16).
While it’s important to eat right, exercise regularly and regulate stress for temple maintenance,
are there times when our physical bodies come under attack by the devil? If so, should we
remain passive or simply “chalk it up” to building of character or the sovereignty of God?
Reading Paul's letter to the Galatians we learn that he first preached to them when he was ill.
He told them he was blessed knowing they would be willing to pluck out their eyes to help him.
He mentioned that he wrote with large letters.
This is the apostle who said, “Satan hindered us” (1 Thessalonians 2:18). He told the Corinthian
church “a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me lest I be
exalted above measure" (2 Cor. 12:7).
