From The Doctor's Diary - The Lord Is Always Watching By Dr Johnson Cherian M.D. PhD

One day as I was finishing my work at the Clinic, my assistant informed me that someone from the vigilance department of the police wanted to see me urgently. I wondered what the reason was and asked my assistant to usher him in. After saying “Hello”, I asked him why he had come. He was reluctant to say much and proceeded to show me a letter that had been received by the vigilance department. I asked him what the letter was about and again hesitantly he stated that someone had sent a written complaint that I was 'a quack' and did not have the required qualifications for practicing Medicine.


This made me smile and I told him amusedly that this was the 5th year that I was practicing after my post  graduation in Medicine. He said that he had been inquiring the matter and knew that there was foul play involved but could not really pinpoint the culprit behind this. Anyway as this was considered as a serious offence, the Superintendent of Police had sent me a notice to appear before him on a set date with all my records.


After he left me, I wondered who could have played such a trick on me, because I did not have any overt enemies in that place and never was any animosity shown towards me by any one in that place.


That night I prayed to the Lord and asked for His guidance regarding the matter, all the while wondering who could have played such a trick. As I slept, I saw a dream. In the dream I am in an elevator with a man who works in a coffee shop near the Clinic. As we ride the elevator, this man smiles at me and says, “The police will never know that I wrote that letter.” Waking up at night after the dream, I praised God for His faithfulness and asked the Lord why that man had done so? In reply the Lord said that the man did not like the Gospel work that I did at the Clinic-distributing tracts and books and it was a sort of harassment that he had planned. I knew this man very well but did not go to confront him regarding the thing, leaving the matter into the Lord’s hands.


A few days later, early one morning, I traveled with my wife to the SP’s office to show him my records. It so happened that the SP was sick that day and as soon as I entered his office, he asked me to prescribe some medicine for his illness. He just glanced through my records and told me that he was sorry for the trouble, but he was just following regulations. I asked him whether they were able to catch the culprit but he just shook his head and said, “It’s not so easy.” I felt like telling him that it would be easy if he could ask the Lord for some help, but just kept quiet  knowing that he would not probably understand or appreciate what I said. As I said “Good Bye”, he smiled and wished me the best.


To end the story, I do not know for sure whether it was God’s way of avenging for what the fellow had done, but in a drunken brawl that week, this man was stabbed and was hospitalized for quite some time.


God is faithful in all His ways and He says, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”


And His Word exhorts us in this way, “Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. (Romans 12:17-19)
