It is always advisable to see a physician when your condition is serious,
and handle it accordingly, the Lord created Physicians to help heal, just
remember not to put all your faith in a physician alone.
Matthew 8:13 " And Jesus answered the centurion, Go your way,
and as you have believed it will be done for you. And his servant was healed
in the same hour."
Matthew 9:21-22 " And she said to herself, if I but touch his
garment I will be healed. And Jesus turned seeing her said, Daughter be of
good comfort, for your faith has made you whole. And the woman was healed in
Matthew 15:28 And Jesus said to her, Woman great is your faith, have
it be as you will. And her daughter was healed that very hour.
Matthew 18:19 " Again I say to you, that if two of you
agree and touch any thing on earth, anything they ask will be done by my
Father in heaven."
Mark 5:34 " And he said to her, Daughter your faith has made
you whole, go in peace and be rid of your plague."
Mark 10:52 " And Jesus said, Go your way, your faith has made
you whole. Immediately he received his sight."
James 5:13-14 " Are there any among you that are distressed?
let him pray. Are any happy among you? let him sing songs of praise. Are there
any among you sick? let him call for the elders of the church that they may
pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of our Lord."
The thing to see in these scriptures is an unwavering faith that they would
be healed. Not only do you have to believe that you will be healed, but you must
have patience in waiting for it to happen. If you feel you might lack the faith
needed, have your minister anoint you and pray for you with the congregation,
for the faith of many can achieve much. But remember that illness is part of the
human experience and is due largely to our own created environment and the foods
we eat being unhealthy for us.
Whenever Jesus could do no mighty works, it was because of the peoples
unbelief. It takes belief / faith!
1 John 3:22 " And what ever we ask we receive of him, because
we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his
Sirach 38:1-15 " Honor the physician with the honor due him,
according to your need of him, for the Lord created him; for healing comes
from God .... the skill of the physician lifts up his head, and in the
presence of great men he is admired. The Lord created medicines from the
earth, and a sensible man will not despise them. Was not water made sweet with
a tree in order that his power might be known? And he gave skill to men that
he might be glorified in his marvelous works. By them he heals and takes away
pain; the pharmacist makes of them a compound. His works will never be
finished, and from him health is upon the face of the earth. My son, when you
are sick do not be negligent, but pray to the Lord, and he will heal you ....
And give the physician his place, for the Lord created him; let him not leave
you, for there is need of him. There is a time when success lies in the hands
of physicians, for they to will pray to the Lord that he should grant them
success in rest and healing, for the sake of preserving life. He who sins
before his maker, may he fall into the care of a physician."
If your faith is not healing you, are you doing as I John 3:22 says?
