Should Christians Use Doctors and Medicine? Part 3 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #180)

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Isaiah 58:9 which reads: “Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Chuck Smith. He said: “Prayer does not change the purpose of God. But prayer does change the action of God.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 3 of our series titled “SHOULD CHRISTIANS USE DOCTORS AND MEDICINE?” from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said…

God can save a sinner without the use of any human aid, but He does not usually do so. If God can use a man, with his consecrated wisdom, love and skill, in winning a soul, why could He not use a doctor, a pharmacist, or a nurse, with their consecrated skill, in healing the sick?

Luke is called “the beloved physician”, and the Bible never condemns the prayerful use of doctors and medicines. So men do not trust doctors instead of God.

Sometimes I have felt clearly led to pray and trust God for healing without doctors and without medicine, and He has answered graciously and wonderfully. I have known a number of cases where doctors failed and God seemed to be glorified in doing His wonderful work without them.
