Some years ago, a lady, who tells the story herself, went to consult a famous physician about her health. She was an anxious woman, whose troubles—and she had many—had worried and upset her to such a degree that the strain threatened her physical and mental health. She gave the doctor a list of her symptoms, and answered his questions, only to be astonished at this brief prescription at the end: “What you need is to read your Bible more.”
“But, doctor,” began the bewildered patient.
“Go home and read your Bible an hour a day,” the great man reiterated with kindly authority. “Then come back to me a month from today.” He scheduled her appointment, and quickly but kindly sent her on her way.
At first his patient was inclined to be angry. Then she reflected that, at least, the prescription was not an expensive one. Besides, it certainly had been a long time since she had read the Bible regularly. She reflected with a pang of conscience how earthly cares had crowded out prayer and Bible study for years. Though she would have resented being called an irreligious woman, she had undoubtedly become a most careless Christian. She went home and decided to make every effort to follow the doctor’s orders.
In one month she went back to his office. “Well,” he said, smiling as he looked at her face, “I see you are an obedient patient, and have taken my prescription faithfully. Do you feel as if you need any other medicine now?”
“No, doctor, I don’t,” she said honestly. “I feel like a different person. But how did you know that was just what I needed?”
The famous physician turned to his desk. There, worn and marked, lay an open Bible. With deep earnestness, the doctor spoke to his patient. “If I were to omit my daily reading of this Book, I would lose my greatest source of strength and skill. I never perform surgery without reading my Bible. I never tackle a difficult case without finding help in its pages. Some people require medical treatment. Your case did not call for medicine, but for sources of peace and strength outside your own mind. I showed you my own prescription, and I knew it would work.”
“Yet, I confess, doctor,” said his patient, “that I almost didn’t take it.”
“I find that very few are willing to try it,” said the physician, smiling again. “But there are many, many cases in my practice where it would work wonders if they only would.”
This is a true story. The doctor died several years ago, but his prescription remains and can be used by all. Won’t you give it a try? Let the Lord, through His Word, take your worries and cares away.
