A Life Lived Wholly Unto God - Chapter 19: Medicine is Witchcraft

A Testament of the Grace of God on His Servant
by Kathryn Currier with Doyle Davidson

God began talking to Doyle in 1986 about his medical books being curious arts. He had closed his veterinary practice in 1982, but had a number of clients in Texas and throughout the United States and he continued in a consultant capacity, which afforded him some income. When he told these clients that they would have to find someone else, they were not happy. One said to him, “Doc, there isn’t anyone else.” And he said, “Well you’re going to have to find someone else.” About the time God was talking to him about his books being curious arts, God told him to start giving ½ of the ministries money away. He wrote:

“During the month of August, God told me to begin giving one half of the ministry’s money away. When I shared this with Terry Mai he showed me Luke 19:8: “And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor…” I laughed and told him ‘This is easy for you to say Terry!’ Terry, being an affable person responded as he often did, with a big smile and a little laugh, and then walked out of the office. This meant that our television program which had just gone from $500 to $2000 per program now doubled to $4000 so as to give half away. We finished that year “in the black”. The ministry was completely out of debt and has remained that way since.”

A few days after that exchange with Terry, Doyle was replacing a 2 x 2 florescent light fixture in the hallway and it slipped and lacerated his wrist. As Doyle looked down at the cut, he could see clearly that a tendon had been cut. He went to find Patti and had her drive him to his physician’s office and when the doctor saw what he had done, he said, “Well you have destroyed your wrist.” Doyle just said, “Just sew me up,” but instead, his physician sent him to a specialist and by the time they were finished with him, it cost $5000. They put a cast on him and needless to say, he was not a happy man.

They were having dinner with Terry and Kathy after his arm had been casted, and he heard the Lord say, “Man ought to obey God and not a man.” He said out loud, “What?” Everyone at the table looked at him. He heard again, “Man ought to obey God and not a man.” He excused himself from the table, went to the restroom, and started taking the cast off. He got as much off as he could, and when he got home, found his tin snips and cut it the rest of the way off.

God had told him months earlier that medicine was witchcraft and he couldn’t believe that was true. When he questioned in his heart how the devil had access to him to injure his wrist he was immediately reminded of his medical books. God told him to get rid of his medical books and that day he carried them out to the dumpster and began dropping them in, one by one and he began to weep. As he threw each book in the trash he wept—God was delivering him of medicine.

He continued to have soreness in his wrist and one day he noticed a medical dictionary on his bookshelves that he had kept. It had Greek and Latin definitions in it and he thought it might be useful. As he stood there looking at that book the Lord told him to throw it away. He did and within a few short months, all the soreness was gone from his wrist and has never bothered him since.

The Lord told him, “Since you have obeyed me, my mercy will never depart from your house.”
