Recently, I overheard a conversation by someone who was sick and it occurred to me that the most common way to handle an illness is exactly the opposite of the spiritual way. First, they immediately take some medicine. If that doesn’t work, they go to the doctor for treatment, and as a last resort, when all else fails, they pray for a healing.
The spiritual way, is to pray immediately and know that it is gone. Some people will take some medicine to relieve the symptoms so they won’t be distracted and can focus on being well. Going to the doctor is the last resort, if all else fails. What an interesting reversal!
