GOD”S WORD IS MEDICINE
When someone gets terribly sick they will go to their Doctor who often gives a prescription for some type of medicine. There will be instructions that come with the prescription stating the person is to take a certain number of pills every four hours until they are gone. When the person faithfully follows the instructions they will begin to see improvement in their condition.
Did you know God has a prescription for you when your sick? It is found in Proverbs 4:20-22, “ 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.” According to Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, the Hebrew word in verse 22 translated “health” actually means medicine. In other words, this scripture actually says, “…they (God’s words) are life unto those that find them and medicine unto all their flesh.”
His Word is medicine to all your flesh. Doctors give you pills – the great physician gives you the “GOS-PILL”. If you will follow God’s directions as faithfully as you would follow the directions of a human doctor, you will see incredible results.
The great news about God’s medicine is there is no danger of overdosing and you do not have to buy it. It is free. If satisfactory results are not obtained right away, double the dosage. Whatever sickness or disease you are suffering from, God’s Word can cure it. It is effective for any condition. However, like any medicine, God’s Word has to be taken to be effective. It will not work sitting on the shelf. And it has to be taken according to the directions.
Don‘t make the mistake of substituting belief in healing for the actual taking of God’s medicine. Just believing food is good for you won’t do you any good if you don’t eat it. You will end up starving. You need to take His Word as prescribed to see the benefit manifested in you body.
Now, I am not saying stop taking any pills prescribed by your doctor. I am not against doctors or medicine. Just don’t put your faith in the doctor. Jesus is the Healer, put your faith in Him. He can and does use doctors in helping bring healing. Many lives are saved every year through medical help. There are medicines today that are beneficial in aiding the body’s healing process.
It is not a lack of faith to seek the help of medicine as long as your faith stays focused on Jesus. GOD”S WORD IS MEDICINE make sure you take your “GOS-PILL” every day!
