As I’m reading these final chapters I’m thinking about the many instructions that God gave the disciples on healing. These instructions weren’t just for that time period but for us to be flowing in today!
Jesus : “Lay hands on the sick and see them recovered.” (Mark 16:15-18)
Jesus : “Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father” (John 14:12)
“So when the apostles, Peter and John, saw this lame man reaching out his empty hand — all he could move — and asking for an alms, they remembered the word of the Lord. And Peter fastened his yes on him with John. Oh how we need to work together in healing! And he commanded, “Look on us” (Acts 3:4). Whether you get healed or not depends entirely on where you look. If that man had fixed his gaze on his legs he would not have been healed no matter how earnestly the apostles had prayed for him. Jesus Himself, “did not many might works” in His own hometown. Why? Because of their unbelief. (Matt. 13:58.) It is “according to your faith,” the Lord Himself said so.”
It is according to our faith! Not only for our own healing but to lay hands on others and see them recovered. We believe that as you press into God’s Word and that as you continue to walk in faith that the Holy Spirit will be working through each of you. Get ready for greater works!
If you find yourself still asking, “Is there healing and health for me?” YES. God, who changeth not, has promised to heal ALL who call upon Him in His name. He is, “The Lord that healeth thee.” (Exodus 15:26) It is only up to you to believe!
Join us for our series on healing on the CAJ Podcast as we continue to talk about our healer! Remember, faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God! Take your daily prescription of God’s Word today and get prepared for our next book beginning next week.
