The Healing Connection

God created us as mind, body and spirit and each of these connected aspects needs the redemption Jesus died to give. It is a very practical construction, and those who ignore the connection may try dividing us into spiritual, physical and emotional components for healing.  The Bible gives us a different perspective because it portrays God as the ultimate source of all healing. He may use
doctors, counselors or other health specialists, but He alone is the Author of healing, regardless of how or through whom He chooses to work.  We read in James 1: l7 that "every good and perfect gift
is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights." Medicine is God's gift, so seeking help from a physician does not necessarily mean a lack of faith. We need to be careful, however, about trusting medical science only.  That thinking discounts the miracle-working power of Jesus to go beyond what medicine can accomplish.  - Jan McCray.
