THE DOCTOR TREATS BUT GOD HEALS

August 17, 2019

Maybe it is because I am presently in my senior years, and my peers are the same that I’ve been hearing about so many of them who are sick. Also, I do acknowledge that as individuals become older, they are more susceptible to disease, and their bodies do not function as good as they did in their youth. So, as I was thinking about this fact and healing, last week, I heard these words in my spirit, “The doctor treats but God heals” to which I responded, “Yes, Lord.”

Most of my professional career was spent in the medical field; first as a nurse and then as a medical social worker. Notably, during my field placements, when I was a student nurse, I saw medical conditions that blew my mind. One of my student nursing field training was in the Children’s Hospital in Boston Massachusetts where I saw children with Polio, Spina Bifida, and all types of Cancer and when I did my field training in a Specialized Rheumatoid Hospital I saw adults and children who were severely crippled due to disease in their joints and limbs. Undoubtedly, divine healing was needed in all of these conditions.

Many times we blame the doctor because they are unable to diagnose our symptoms; however, they only know what God permits. Doctors only possess the wisdom that God gives them; they are not omniscient. Moreover, when I worked in the hospital, they had morbidity and mortality rounds for the doctors to discuss the patients that expired due to possible misdiagnoses. This once again reminds us that the doctors treat, but God heals.

When you pray, and you are not healed immediately, please don’t think that you can go to the doctor and he will cure you. Again doctors treat, but God heals. To this end, I want to close with a few healing scriptures on which you can meditate and confess (A greater list of healing scriptures can be found on the internet:

For I am the Lord that healeth thee. Exodus 15:26b.

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless thy bread and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. Exodus 23:25

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases Psalm 103:2-3

He sent His word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Psalms 107:20

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalms 147:3

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live for righteousness: by whose stripes you were healed. 1 Peter 2:24
