1. In his classic bestseller Experiencing God, Henry Blackaby tells a story of his own daughter's battle with cancer. He said, "As we prayed, a Scripture promise came that we believed was from God... 'This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it' (John 11:4)" (p.190). "The Holy Spirit took the Word of God and revealed to us God's perspective on the end result of that circumstance" (p.191). 2. So a pastor friend and I were talking about this story and to my surprise my friend said that Blackaby misused the verse, because not everyone with cancer is able to survive and tell about it. He went onto to say that Lazarus did die, but Blackaby's daughter didn't die and therefore this was a misuse of Scripture. 3. Is my pastor friend's criticism of Blackaby correct? 4. Can the Holy Spirit bring a Scripture to us that from a Bible Study standpoint is out of context, and apply it to whatever situation we might be in, as in the case of Henry Blackaby?
