Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD That Heals - The Rock - The Wisdom of God - The Omniscience Of God
Medicated By Mercy
The LORD will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will sustain him on his sickbed. I said, "LORD, be merciful to me; heal my soul, for I have sinned against You."
What do you look for in a good physician? Can the physician properly diagnose symptoms to know the cause of pain? Can the physician properly administer remedies that take pain away? David trusted the LORD as the Great Physician! He trusted God was able to diagnose the true issues of his suffering – looking into the soul. David trusted God’s ability to administer spiritual remedies that had physical ramifications, enabling those who trust Him to persevere. David knew that God could address the chief issue of ALL suffering – sin – by administering His mercy as the remedy. Only God is wise to provide solutions such as this.
