经文: 耶和华啊,求祢医治我,我便痊愈。(耶利米书十七:14)我看见他所行的道,也要医治他。(以赛亚书五十七:18)

除去属灵的疾病是上帝的特权。医生可能治愈人肉体的疾病,即使如此,也当归荣耀于上帝。祂使医生有投药的智慧,祂赐人体的本能驱出疾病。至于属灵之病,唯有伟大的医生才有治疗的能力。那是祂的权利,祂宣告:“我使人死,我使人活,我损伤,我也医治。”(申三十二:39)耶和华的另一名字Jehoveah-Rophi──耶和华是医治你的(参阅出十五:26)。“我必医好你的伤痕”(耶三十:17),这是应许,它不可能从人而来,唯有从永在的上帝口中而出。因为这缘故,诗人向主呼求:“求祢医治我,因为我得罪了祢。”(诗四十一:4)敬畏上帝的人赞美主的名,说:“祂医治我们的一切疾病。”(参阅诗一○三:3)祂创造了人,也能治愈人。我们本性的创造者也能使这本性更新。不论你的疾病为何,这位伟大的医生能使你痊愈。祂是上帝,祂的能力是无限的。来吧,带着愚昧无知的瞎眼,带着没有力气的跛脚,来吧。带着软弱信心的残手,带着发怒气的热火,或带着战栗消沈的疾病,来吧!就是如你这般,来吧,因为上帝要恢复你的健康。从耶稣我们的主身上流出的医治能力,不受任何事物限制。魔鬼的兵团虽曾攻击这位爱的“医生”之能力,但是祂从来没有一次被击败。祂的所有病人在过去被治愈了,在将来也要得痊愈。
 

Evening, August 30
Scripture: “Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed.”(Jeremiah 17:14)“I have seen his ways, and will heal him.”(Isaiah 57:18)

It is the sole prerogative of God to remove spiritual disease. Natural disease may be instrumentally healed by men, but even then the honour is to be given to God who giveth virtue unto medicine, and bestoweth power unto the human frame to cast off disease. As for spiritual sicknesses, these remain with the great Physician alone; he claims it as his prerogative, “I kill and I make alive, I wound and I heal;” and one of the Lord's choice titles is Jehovah-Rophi, the Lord that healeth thee. “I will heal thee of thy wounds,” is a promise which could not come from the lip of man, but only from the mouth of the eternal God. On this account the psalmist cried unto the Lord, “O Lord, heal me, for my bones are sore vexed,” and again, “Heal my soul, for I have sinned against thee.” For this, also, the godly praise the name of the Lord, saying, “He healeth all our diseases.” He who made man can restore man; he who was at first the creator of our nature can new create it. What a transcendent comfort it is that in the person of Jesus “dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily!” My soul, whatever thy disease may be, this great Physician can heal thee. If he be God, there can be no limit to his power. Come then with the blind eye of darkened understanding, come with the limping foot of wasted energy, come with the maimed hand of weak faith, the fever of an angry temper, or the ague of shivering despondency, come just as thou art, for he who is God can certainly restore thee of thy plague. None shall restrain the healing virtue which proceeds from Jesus our Lord. Legions of devils have been made to own the power of the beloved Physician, and never once has he been baffled. All his patients have been cured in the past and shall be in the future, and thou shalt be one among them, my friend, if thou wilt but rest thyself in him this night.
