Regardless of how healing occurs, God is always the Healer (Exodus 15:26). God heals by miracle and/or by medicine. Yahweh added 15 years to King Hezekiah’s life by healing him from terminal illness, using miracle and medicine in the form of a poultice of figs (2 Kings 20:1-7). Apostle Paul operated in miraculous healings, but he had Luke the doctor on his mission team (Colossians 4:14), and Paul prescribed grape wine for Timothy’s frequent stomach ailments (1 Timothy 5:23). Yet the LORD prefers to keep us in health through nutrition, making healthy food our best medicine.
