Numbers 12-14; Mark 5:21-43
In the book of Mark, we read the story of the woman who had an issue of blood. In verse 26 it talks of how she had spent all her money on the physicians of the day and she was no better but actually worse. As I read this story , I am reminded that even today Jesus is the Great Physician! I am not against the doctors of our day in any way. We spend a lot of time with doctors because of my son Michael’s diabetes and I appreciate all they can do, but I also know they are only human.
Sometimes we think or forget that it’s not necessarily a certain medicine or treatment that can heal us but that it is God alone who heals. We pray, I pray, that maybe this medicine will work or that this treatment will work but in my heart I know that God doesn’t need medicine to heal. He can use medicine and doctors to do His will, but ultimately, that needs to be our goal…His Will.
Sometimes its hard to except His Will or even let go and trust God to do His will. We must remember that He always does what is best for us! Sometimes we like His answers and sometimes we don’t but in the end we must trust Him.
If you are praying for God’s will then you don’t need to question yourself when it comes to decisions of whether or not I chose the right medicine, doctor or treatment, but rather know that God is in control and as long as you are in His will there are no mistakes! Isaiah 41:13
