The Great Physician

“In the 39th year of his reign Asa became diseased in his feet.  His disease was severe, yet even in his disease he did not seek the LORD, but the physicians.” (2 Chronicles 16:12)

The Bible has plenty of examples of the value of seeking medical help – Christians should not confuse this verse with some sort of call to askew all medicine or medical expertise.  This verse is a reminder that human expertise is not a replacement for God.

Regardless of how much we learn about the human body, there are volumes more we simply don’t understand.  God designed us in a wonderful and complicated way. No amount of study will ever plumb the depths of His creation to its fullest.  We will always be dependent upon Him.

So see the doctor, but don’t forget about the Great Physician.

Matt 4:4 #Biblebites
