There’s too many so called faith-healers out there, but people still need Christ’s healing.
And during the holidays it’s a good time to take some time for people.. to pause, to listen, to focus, and simply pray for them regarding their needs. Just had someone over for lunch who brought one of those sports bottles for water. I thought, they must be trying to lose weight or somethin’. No, after asking.. I heard that the water was supposed to help against migraine headaches and I never knew this person suffered with those. Prayed!
Been lookin’ at how Christ met needs back in the day. Yes, He’s done it before.. delights to!.. and the Lord can do it again for you. Been thinking about His healing ..on all levels. And you know He doesn’t always heal us physically down here pre-rapture n all. And He has good reasons for that cuz He knows best, but He will eventually do that.. if we just live for Him. Daily, we can trust the Lord to meet our needs. What happens with carnal Christians is that they start looking elsewhere.. like to this world first to meet their needs. Or looking half to the world to meed their needs and they cool off. Doesn’t need to happen like that. Many of us can start to depend upon ourselves too much–I’ve done that before.
Me thinks it’ll all be good for believers that suffer.. sooner than we know. Been lookin’ lately at this old story about different types of healing too.
There was this man in need, but he had some decent friends who cared. And when they couldn’t reach Jesus directly the normal way through the entrance.. because of the packed crowd, “they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on.” Mark 2:1-4
Are you willing to help, or to get unconventional for others?
When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” v. 2:5, and then came the words “Get up, take your mat and go home” v. 11. Done, over, past.. the start of a whole new life. I love it! you do too. Such an easy fix for Jesus. How cool was that! And Christ hasn’t changed–He’s the same yesterday, today and forever. What He’s cared about in the past He still cares about–people!
Forgiven and healed of his incurable condition! That’s how the man was after he met Jesus. But as friends of needy people, we too have the privilege of praying for them and bringin’ em to Jesus who can easily address any and all of their needs.
God cares about your needs today, and those of your friends around you. He’s indifferent to none of them. What, where, or which need do you have for the Lord to address today? Being forgiven is most important! What do your friends or enemies need? Have you prayed about it, for prayed for them?
I say.. don’t forget to find a healthy Christian church that has a heart for need-meeting too. Refuse to listen to the false teachers–for sure, cuz there are some sound ones out there. Listen to the Lord’s word most and obey Him. You’ll be so glad you did. He can heal your headaches or whatever is whacked or hurts.
“But to you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves.” Malachi 4:2
"Bless the Lord , O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103:2-5 facebook.com/shareJesus
