Psalm 30:2 - I cried to You for help, and You healed me

NIV O LORD my God, I called to you for help
and you healed me.
KJV O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
I cried to You for help, and You healed me.
Psalm 30:2


God alone is the unique healer (cf. Ex. 15:26; Deut. 32:39; Ps. 107:20). David is extolling God for bringing him back from a near-death experience.

Most of us have at one time or another experienced the delicious relief of recovery from a serious illness. We have said goodbye to the sterile world of surgery, anesthesia, intensive care, intravenous feedings, hypodermic injections and the interminable pill parade! It is too easy to think that our recovery was "thanks to modern medicine!" We forget to sing a psalm of thanksgiving to the One who is ultimately responsible for all our healing.
