"Jesus Is the Healer"
And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for often times he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. —Matthew 17:14-18.
Some people have said, "I've been to every preacher in the country, and I couldn't get healed. It must not be God's will to heal me." Yet the father in this account could've come to that same conclusion. After all, he'd taken his son to Jesus' own personal trainees, but the boy still wasn't healed. However, instead of concluding it wasn't God's will to heal his son, the father took the boy to Jesus and explained, "I brought my son to Your disciples, and they couldn't heal him." Jesus didn't turn to the man and say, "Well, it must not be the will of God then." He said, "Bring the boy to Me." Jesus was the will of God in action, and He revealed God's will by setting him free. At that moment, Jesus was also revealing God's willingness to heal you and me today. Are you ready to go free?
My Confession: Jesus is the will of God in action, and He's revealed God's will to me. I know God wants me free from sickness. Thank You, Father, for Your healing power at work in me.
Please read these scriptures (Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24; Psalm 103:3; Matthew 4:23, 8:3. Revelation 22:6.
