KEY SCRIPTURE: Luke 17:14 “And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed”.
In the story of our key scripture, some ten lepers met the Lord Jesus and pleaded with Him to heal them. The Lord asked them to go show themselves to the priest. According to the Law of Moses, when a leper was cleansed, he had to show himself to the priest, who would declare him clean. (Lev.14:2)
For these lepers to decide to obey that instruction meant they believed they were healed. They took Jesus at His word. For your healing you must take God at His word.
I would like to give an instant to explain this point clearly.
I had a call from the authorities of my son’s school that he’s had an eye infection and so I must come for him to be treated by a doctor. He was brought home and the required treatment given to him. His eyes got better and left for school. After vacation he came home and the eye was as bad as before. He was taken to the hospital again and was given medication. He left for school and this time too everything was well but when the medication was finished the condition came back. He repeated the treatment again and everything was all right. After the treatment the condition relapsed again.
He called me and told me of how worse the eye had become. It was at this time that I told him he must believe in the word of God and take him at his word. I asked him to forget about the drugs and take his healing as I prayed for him. I prayed with him, and told him that was the end of that condition. I asked him to accept the word of God like a little child. He believed in the word and the condition never came back. This was the end of that irritating eye trouble.
Dear one, you may have a condition that is not responding medically. The word of God assures us that, “by the stripes of the Lord Jesus we were healed”. (1st Peter 2:24). You can take God at His word and claim your healing.
If you are in such a condition, please take this prayer and claim your healing. “In the name of my Lord Jesus Christ whatever the condition that is refusing to change, I command that spirit of infirmity to lose its hold over your body and life and be forever gone. Be healed in Jesus name”.
Please hold your grounds on the word of God.
Thank you Lord for your goodness. Thank you for healing my body and terminating this sickness.
James 5:14-15 Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
Matthew 8:8 ” The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed”.
