I want to address something that could be very important in the very near future. As government trustworthiness disintegrates, the medical sector may decline with it.
But we should know without doubt that God has made provision to keep believers safe and healthy. Some have not believed that and therefore, have put their trust primarily or even entirely in doctors and medicine.
I know it’s easy and convenient to have insurance that encourages us to trust in physicians and medicines, but the truth is: no matter how practiced practitioners are, they are still practicing. God, on the other hand, knows exactly what He’s doing. And He only asks for our faith and complete trust.
Two of the many scripture references on healing are: “With His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5) And “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” (James 5:16)
God has waited a long time for His people to accept the reality of the many great and precious promises He has made to us. There’s no better time than now for us to agree that His promises are – unlike the promises of desperate politicians – TRUE.
Don’t feel condemned if you have been in the habit of trusting doctors and medicine. But I urge you to dig into God’s Word and find His promises.
Will it take some renewing of our minds to change the infrastructure upon which our beliefs about such things are built? Absolutely. But we can do it with God’s help.
If you have never made a commitment to Jesus Christ – do it now. And when you do, make the kind of break from worldliness that will ensure your trust is not shattered with the world’s system, which is already spiraling downward toward the septic system that is its fate.
If this message sounds like dull thumping in your ears, May God bless you! Go and be happy with the future of medicine. But if it rings with the clear, steely tone of truth for you, let this be instructive. Ask God to set your feet firmly on trust in His provision for everything – including your and your family’s health and safety.
He has declared through the apostle Peter that, “His divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue.”
Proverbs 4:20-22 says “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.”
Good health is among the conditions that pertain to life and godliness, a product of entrusting our health to God’s Word.
