Dear Beachside Family and Friends,

 

As I observe the current healthcare and health insurance debate in Washington, this fact has become clear to me: Americans put their trust in Government, Insurance companies, Doctors, and Medicine for their health and happiness. Something else that is patently obvious to me is that politicians exploit our citizens' trust in others to solve their problems in order to secure votes and enhance their own power. It is a mess of titanic proportion, and if reason and sense do not prevail, the American healthcare system will go the way of the Titanic. 

 

Who should we trust with our healthcare? Who has the knowledge and ability to heal us and keep us healthy? Is it the Government. Is it Politicians? Is if Doctors? Is it Insurance companies? Do any of these really have the power to keep us well? 

 

To all the current solutions offered by the people and organizations I just mentioned, I say a resounding NO! It is impossible for men to heal and fix something we have not created. We do have power to repair our own creations. We can fix automobiles, aircraft, and other machines, restoring them and making them new. They are the creation of our hands, and we have the capability to repair them. We record the procedures necessary and print them as Owner's Manuals. When I need information on the repair and maintenance of my truck, I consult the manual. 

 

Our bodies are not the creation of our own hands, but of God's. "Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person." (Gen 2:7) God made each of our bodies. He oversees our formation in the womb, as Psalm 139:14-15 tells us: "Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb." God made our bodies, and He alone is able to fully heal and restore them. 

 

To this end, He wrote an Owner's Manual. We call it the Bible. Everything we need to know about healing and health can be found in its' pages. God says "My son, attend to my words; Incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; Keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, And health (medicine) to all their flesh." (Pro 4:20-22) He tells us that the medicine we need is the Word of God, and that it will bring us life when taken regularly. While I am grateful for doctors and their skills, they can only treat. Our Creator does far more than treat disease: He heals and restores. God wrote the manual for our bodies, and it says "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers." (3 John 1:2)

 

The question we face about healthcare is really not about the role of Government, the effectiveness of Insurance policies, or the skill of Doctors. It is about who we are going to trust with our health. Will we trust men, who do not have the power to heal and restore our bodies, or will we trust the One Who created us? Will we put our faith in humanity, or put our faith in God? Insurance, doctors, and medicine are not the answer. Paul wrote "For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh," (Phil 3:3) We have a covenant with our Maker that guarantees healing and health when we take His medicine, the Word of God. 

 

Trusting our healthcare to Government, Doctors, and Insurers only results in a temporary reprieve from sickness and disease. When we put our healthcare in God's hands, the results are amazing. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths." (Pro 3:5-6)  When we trust Him and take the medicine of the Word, we will activate the greatest policy ever written: Heaith Assurance! Paul wrote "But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured..." (2 Tim 3:14) The Word assures us that healing and health are the will of God. Health Assurance is available to all without cost - it's in the Owner's Manual, the Bible!
