Preacher and best-selling Christian author, Max Lucado, has revealed the latest on his health challenge. In a YouTube video, Lucado credited God's "hand of grace" for shrinking the size of his aneurysm. He added that the good news came as a surprise as he did not expect it.

The 66-year-old had been diagnosed with 'Ascending Aortic Aneurysm', and he informed his followers in September that it is a ‘’serious health condition.’’ Hence, he asked for their prayers so that God’s will be done.

"It certainly seemed that surgery was going to be a part of my future. After undergoing a couple of more tests however, just a few days ago we were given some surprising and unexpected news. The measurement of my aneurysm has actually diminished. 

‘’No one saw this coming! The medical team credits a more precise test, and they very well may be correct. But I want to credit a good God who, in this case, is choosing to keep a hand of grace around the aneurysm. The bulge is actually reduced to the point that I don't even have to go back to the doctor for a year.

"The current strategy is to wait, watch, and pray that the aneurysm doesn't increase any further in size," he previously announced. "I am maintaining my normal routines and commitments; my ministry is undisturbed by this news. I feel fine. I am under the care of an outstanding medical team, and most of all, I am in the hands of a good God," Lucado explained.
Lucado remembered how a friend has been seeking God’s healing on his behalf.

"A dear friend of mine has been framing his prayers for me around a text found in the book of Job. In chapter 38 God presents himself as the one who shut in the sea with doors, who made garments for the clouds, who fixed the limit for the waves and he said, 'this far you may come but no farther.' That's in verse 11. We thank God that he did the same with the aneurysm. He has spoken to it and said, 'this far you may come but no farther.'"

In addition, Lucado expressed gratitude to followers and his medical team for their consistent prayers in this challenging time.

"Denalyn and I are so grateful for your prayers, so grateful for our medical team and, most of all, we are so grateful for our gracious heavenly Father.’’

According to the Johns Hopkins website, an ascending aortic aneurysm is an abnormal bulging and weakening of the aorta at the point before the curve. If an aortic aneurysm ruptures, it can cause life-threatening bleeding. An aneurysm that is at risk for rupture needs surgical repair.
