Doctor I'm in Trouble!

"Oh doctor, I'm in trouble - Goodness gracious me,' is a catchy song from an old movie, starring Peter Sellers & Sophia Loren.

Thankfully I've not seen very much of our doctor over the years. When I'm 'in trouble' I usually pray first and give God a chance to work. But when I do go, we are blessed with a good doctor. He listens and tunes in, treating me as a 'person' and not just an 'eye' or a 'lung' or whatever. Not all doctors have such a good patient manner and forget that we may apprehensive to start with.

Either way, we may possibly leave the consulting room with the doctor's words ringing in our ears, thinking, 'goodness gracious me! Could that really happen?' Some words may even sound like some sort of prison sentence, such as, "could be malignant' or 'there maybe serious side effects.' Maybe? Serious? And anxiety and fear start to come scratching at the door of our heart.

If taken in, these words can have a power and may even affect us physically. I find that it's at times like this when I need to listen to Someone who really knows all about me. God the Healer's Word is true and powerful. For example:


"Be still, and know that I am God;" Psalm 46:10

"We are healed by the punishment he suffered, made whole by the blows he received." Isaiah 53:5

"The LORD your God is with you; his power gives you victory -" Zephaniah 3:17

"Don't worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful heart." Philippians 4:6

"Be patient and wait for the LORD to act; don't be worried -" Psalm 37:7

"- I will heal him; I will guide him and restore comfort to him," Isaiah 57:18

"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters ... they shall not overwhelm you; - -" Isaiah 43:1-3

    Amen! Thank you for sharing such powerful scriptures. I also believe that going to the Lord first is a good idea.

    I would like to share a testimony real quick about why going to the Lord first can be very beneficial. I was having some major stomach problems for a lot of years. I just couldn't figure it out. The Doctors couldn't tell me anything they just kept running tests and telling me i had this or that and would give me medications to take.

    FINALLY! my husband and I decided that we were going to go to the Lord about this. I really wish we would of done this first it would of saved us a lot of time, money and pain. So anyways, we prayed and the Lord showed my husband while we were praying that caffeine was my problem. My stomach was reacting to caffeine.

    So i went off of caffeine and i have been fine ever since... Praise be to God! He showed us what needed to be done and i was healed. It was just that simple!

    Now we always go to the Lord first!

    GOOD WORD!

    Many thanks for such an uplifting and practical testimony. I thank God for doctors, but I can't help feeling that sometimes they are looked upon as gods.
