"Throw all your anxiety upon [God], because he cares for you" (1 Peter 5:7)

In God's new world, full spiritual and physical healing will be brought about by means of forgiveness of sins on the basis of Jesus' ransom sacrifice. The Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, will guide us to "fountains of waters of life," and God will wipe out every tear from our eyes. (Revelation 7:14-17; 22:1, 2) Then, too, we will experience the fulfillment of this thrilling prophecy: "No resident will say: 'I am sick.' " (Isaiah 33:24) We are convinced that our deliverance is near, and we eagerly await the day when Jehovah will reverse the process of human sickness and death. In the meantime, we are assured that our loving Father will help us to endure the burden of our aches and pains because 'he cares for us.' Let us, therefore, take care of our health but always in accord with the clear guidelines contained in God's inspired Word!
