I thought on this for a while and with ALL respect and humility I want to share with you: The New Testament mentions Luke briefly a few times, and the Pauline Epistle to the Colossians refers to him as a physician (from Greek for ‘one who heals’); thus he is thought to have been both a physician and a disciple of Paul. Since the early years of the faith, Christians have regarded him as a saint.
This was ONE of the disciples of Jesus. A doctor? He ‘practiced’ MEDICINE. Yes, the bible says God will meet us at the point of our faith.
Yes! Prayer does outstanding things, one who walked WITH Jesus was a Physician.
Here is a principle that we can take great comfort in. As He does with Job, God also deals with us. God has set limits on what Satan or the demons are able to do with or to us. God deals with us according to the measure of our faith, our Love, the measure of His Spirit within us. By faith, we have to deal with what He allows to occur, understanding that we Love God for what He is and not because He has given us good things. That is an additional blessing.
We see, then, that from time to time we will have to overcome the demons that God allows to test us.
Jesus says, “According to your faith let it be to you,” similar to His words to the centurion whose servant was dying in Matthew 8:13. In both cases, the condition for the miraculous cure is faith. Faith opens the door for divine blessing; its lack closes the door. Christ could do few mighty works in Nazareth due to the people’s lack of faith (Matthew 13:57-58). Similarly, salvation is a great work, but unbelief prevents it. It is important to study the Word of God to increase faith, as it comes by hearing or reading God’s Word (Romans 10:17).
“Their eyes were opened” is more than a description of a literal action; it is also a Hebrew figure of speech. The Jews thought of blind eyes as “shut,” and seeing eyes as “open.” Jesus removes two men’s blindness—they can now see and comprehend what was once closed to them. Thus, the opening of the eyes also suggests spiritual understanding.
Most people do not grasp the value or the meaning of Scripture, but Christ can open a person’s eyes to enable him to understand His Word just as He did for His disciples after His resurrection (Luke 24:16-31, 45). The psalmist prays, “Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law” (Psalm 119:18).
Why I share this is beyond me.
ALL things work together for good in the lives of those who Love God and are called according to His purpose.
Are you called? You are, Hallelujah!
Remember Luke, he treated patients and in private prayed for those who saw him. God worked through him.
There are cancer/sick/ill patients – diabetics, hypertensive, wheelchair bound… people who ALL are serving The LORD in their way, we are ALL chosen for a reason. We face trials to teach us, yes. God has provided a way out.
In my VERY humble way, I will state that “I know you are needed here for so many reasons!
Please take the treatment and “Faith”-on!
People are watching YOU, for your testimony, live it, Amen.
To take meds is human! We do not live in the flesh, but we ‘rent’ the space we occupy. The better condition our rental in in when we ‘turn it in’, the MORE awesome our time with the ‘rental’! Wow, I could go on, but I will let The Spirit speak with you.
