THE STORY OF JESUS: Mark 1:29-34
“The people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed.” (Mark 1:32)
As a follower of Jesus, I’ve prayed for sickness and demons.
People who deny the spiritual reject both healing and the reality of demons.
And yet miracles still occur, and demons still impact our world, believe in or not.
Long after God was declared dead, God is still at work in our world.
We’re still trying to deal with sickness, and with non-physical (spiritual) illness.
Reductionism (reducing our world to material, non-spiritual reality) has failed.
People are still looking to God (the spiritual) for help and hope and healing.
Through Jesus, God steps into our world to offer help, hope and healing.
We must gather at His door to bring our physical and spiritual troubles to Him.
The way we do this today is by prayer, bringing those who suffer to Jesus.
How or when Jesus heals is beyond me, but things happen when I pray to Him.
Sadly, not everyone I’ve prayed for has been healed the way I asked.
But some have, and most have been blessed through prayer… so why stop?
Our job is not to heal, but to pray to Jesus, and let Him do what He does best!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, we still need You, physically and spiritually. Please show Your healing power today so that people will know You are the way, the truth and the life!
