THE STORY OF JESUS: Luke 7:11-17
“When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her…” (Luke 7:13)
What happen when you see someone suffering, grieving or struggling?
Does your heart go out to them?
Mine does, but many a time I have wished I could do what Jesus did.
I have often felt helpless when with people who struggle.
I can’t heal them, or fix their problem, or raise the dead.
At least not yet… and believe me, I’ve tried.
I just do what I can – pray, encourage or help in practical ways.
On the one hand, this seems so weak.
On the other hand, God uses this sincere heart effort to do His work.
When our heart goes out and we do what we can, we are like Jesus.
God used Jesus’ heart and willingness to heal and to help others.
God may choose to heal someone through us, but that is His decision.
My job is to open my heart, to make myself available, to do what I can.
Who knows, people may praise God because of what He does through you!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, recently I prayed for a miracle healing. I am weak, but You are strong.
May this be an occasion for healing that leads to praise for You!
