Open Your Medicine Cabinet

Yesterday I kept my medicine cabinet closed. Today I do not just plan to open it. I plan to use the medicines inside and to apply them as they are prescribed. The funny thing is that I don’t have a medicine cabinet in my bathroom. Nor do I take medicine – not even aspirin. But I have a Bible full of medicinal scriptures, and some days I take my medicine – and some days I forget. Yesterday I forgot to take my medicine. The day I had was proof enough that I had not filled my prescription, nor used it. Today I have remembered, and decided, to take my medicine as the Lord prescribes it.
Scriptures are medicine, but they are no good if I leave them in the cabinet. In between the front and back cover of the Bible, unstudied, not prescribed, and/or not applied to my life, they will do nothing for my life. I will walk through life without my medication, bearing the brunt and experiencing the consequences of not using the best medicine the Lord has given me – His Word.

Some medicine should be taken on an empty stomach. Some medicine should be taken on a full stomach. All medicine should be taken according to a doctor’s prescription – and on time. If not taken, the medicine does no good at all. Taken, the medicine can be a huge help. God’s medicine is not just a help. His medicine is miraculous.

I am excited to see how today will work out as I open my medicine cabinet and follow God’s instructions. I know of no other medicine cabinet where all the medicine was free for life – paid for by the shedding of Christ’s blood that by faith in Him we may be made whole.

20 “My son, give attention to my words;
      Incline your ear to my sayings.
       21 Do not let them depart from your eyes;
      Keep them in the midst of your heart;
       22 For they are life to those who find them,
      And health to all their flesh.” Proverbs 4 NJKJV
