KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 8:3 KJV” And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.”
Our Lord Jesus demonstrated that He was very much concerned about the sick, and was ready to heal anyone who came to Him, needing healing.
It has been a real question among many Christians over the years whether our Lord Jesus will heal the sick who come to Him. Some even say, God makes people sick, so He would teach them humility or get them closer to Him. What was Jesus’ real attitude to the sick? Jesus is the living word. He is the thoughts of God in action. In our key scripture, we see a leper who came to Him and said, Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean. The Lord did not only say be healed, rather, but He also reached forth His hand and TOUCHED him, saying, be thou clean. According to the law, no one was to touch a leper, because they were unclean. The Lord expressed His ever readiness to heal. He showed that when it came to healing legalities should not be a barrier.
The Lord continued to show that, sickness was an assault of satanic power on men, made in the image of God. The Lord said the following concerning the woman bound low by the spirit of infirmity. Luke 13:16 KJV “And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?” He revealed that it was Satan who put her in that state, and the works of the devil should not be allowed to prevail. 1 John 3:8 also shows that the Lord Jesus was manifested to destroy the works of the devil.
In many other cases, the Lord came against the hypocrisies of the Pharisees, who opposed His healing of the sick. Please remember that the Lord Jesus was the living word of God. This meant He was the thoughts of God, going somewhere to happen and He always brought healing to all who needed and believed Him for it.
Dear child of God, please settle it that Jesus wants you well. Believe the word of God and receive the Lord’s healing for your life.
Thank you, father, for giving your only begotten Son, who demonstrated that healing of the sick is your will for all the oppressed. I always agree with your word to enjoy your provisions of healing for me. Thank you father.
THOUGHT: JESUS WANTS YOU WELL.
