Wishing To Be Healed
Many of God’s people desire to be healed. Know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jesus is a healer! I cannot count the times that I have made hospital visits and heard the cry of God’s people, “Lord heal my body.” I have even had people come into my office and ask me to pray for their healing. To be really healed, we need faith, and we must believe in our hearts that He is truly a healer. I believe with all my heart that the Lord is a mighty good healer. I had scarlet fever when I was young and God healed me. And He helped me carry many burdens throughout the years. Of course, I know that I am not alone. If He has healed you at any point in your life, give God praise! In John 5:6, we find these words:
“When Jesus saw him and knew he had been ill for a long time, he asked him, ‘Would you like to get well?’”
A man had been sick for 38 years. Each day, he went to the Pool of Bethesda and watched others be healed. The man responded to Jesus telling him that no one was there to put him in the water. In verse 8, Jesus tells him to, “Stand up, pick up your mat, and walk!.” The man wished to be healed. Praise God that the Lord granted his request! If we wish to be healed, all we must do is have faith and ask Him.
