KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 8:3 KJV “And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou made clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.”
(Please read Matt 8:1-4)
In the above story a leper approached the Lord Jesus and requested healing. In his request he stated that if Jesus was willing, he could make him whole. The Lord quickly corrected him and said, I am willing, be thou made clean. He was healed instantly. This is a very important lesson for all of us. Many people are still in doubt whether it is the will of God to heal them of their ailments. Jesus Christ is the revelation of the will of God. He did what the father would have done.
John 5:30 KJV “I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.” The Lord Jesus always did the will of the Father.
The Lord Jesus consistently proved that he was never willing to let those who came to him for healing, go back without healing them. Please read Matt 12:10-13. In this passage, the Pharisees came to Jesus and asked should he heal on the sabbath day.? The Lord answered that, which of them would not save his sheep that falls into a pit on the sabbath day? He then asked, is not a man more important than a sheep? He went ahead and healed him. A similar event occurred in Luke 13:13-18, about a woman who had been bound by a spirit of infirmity for eighteen years. After healing her, they complained that, those who are sick should not come for healing on the sabbath day. The following is the Lord’s remarks Luke 13:15 KJV The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? He then added that, this is a daughter of Abraham, who Satan has bound for eighteen years ought not her to be healed on the sabbath day? Jesus demonstrated his hatred for sicknesses and subsequently his willingness to heal those who are sick.
There were instances that some individuals did not announce their presence and request for healing, yet they received their healing. (Mark 5:25-34) The healing power of God is always available, and anyone who would reach out in faith would be made whole. The only condition is for you to trust the word with all your heart. In Mark 9, the man who brought his son to the disciples to heal him, said to Jesus, after His disciples failed, if you can, you can heal my son. The Lord remarked in Mark 9:23, KJV” Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth”. Your healing has been provided and lying within the reach of your faith. Stop waiting for something to happen, go to his word and listen to what He says. Isaiah 53:1 KJV” Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed”? The arm of God is the power of God which is always revealed to the one who believes His report.
Thank you, Father, for your healing grace. Thanks for our Lord Jesus who took away all my sicknesses and diseases in His own body. I believe His report. Thank you, Lord, I receive my healing today in the name of my Lord Jesus.
Isaiah 53:5 KJV” But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
1 Peter 2:24 KJV” Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”
