Jeremiah Eight: Where’s The Medicine?

20140124-130503.jpg

Where do many people go for physical healing:

Doctors
Nature
The gym

Where do they go for direction?
To church
The horoscope
The Wall Street Journal
The government
Friends and family
Education

Where do they go for healing painful emotions?
To counselors
The bottle.
Pills
Religion
Hobbies

Not many turn to the Bible for guidance. Not many consult the Scriptures when hurt. Not many care to pray.

Do I?

How rich a treasure is the Word of God.

More to be desired are they (the statutes God) than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. (Psalms 19:10 NKJV)

(In no way am I advocating forgoing medical and professional care when ill or depressed. What I am encouraging is to seek The Lord for guidance and comfort in our lives, and He will give us wisdom and direction through His Word.)
