Matthew 4:12-25

And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people” (4:23).

The Great Physician

One day when I was walking down a hospital corridor, a man stopped me and asked a question that I have been asked many times. Because of a serious illness in his family, he asked me if I believed in divine healing. I asked him if there was any other kind. Does anyone heal but God?

The doctor can prescribe, the surgeon can cut, and the physician can sew up the wound, but it is God who heals. The pharmacist cannot heal; the physician cannot heal; the surgeon cannot heal. Only God can heal. The surgeon, the doctor, and the pharmacist are as helpless before God as you and I are. They have to depend upon God, whether they admit it or not. The physician may be an infidel or an atheist, but he has to depend upon God for healing. There is no other kind of healing but divine healing. All healing comes from the gracious hands of the Lord.
