Luke 4:23 And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country.
Our Lord had been in Galilee. His fame had spread throughout that region. He had wrought mighty miracles. He comes back home to Nazareth where He had been brought up, and preached in the synagogue on the Sabbath day from Isaiah 61:1-3, saying, "This day is the Scripture fulfilled in your ears." The people who heard these words said, "Is this not Joseph's son?" and then Jesus quoted to them our verse, a proverb from the Jews. What a mistake they made. He was The Great Physician. He IS The Great Physician - "Able to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think!" How few Know Him as such an One! How few look to Him! How few depend upon Him!
Lord, Thou Who art the Great Physician, we look to Thee today to supply our every need. Amen.
