Still reaching out to Jesus!

PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Mark 6:53-56

What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?

“All who touched (even the edge of his cloak) were healed.” (Mark 6:56)
As a Jesus follower, I believe the stories about how Jesus healed people.
But one challenge to my faith is that I do not see healings like this today.
Don’t get me wrong, I hear stories about healing, and I believe it happens.
But not everyone is healed; many people who reach out to Him remain sick.
Some say that signs do not always occur, only when God wants to make a point.
Some say the problem is our lack of faith, God can’t help those who don’t believe.
Others say the healing does happen in some form, we just don’t see it.
These answers are academic, they don’t help when your sickness is not healed.
This is a real challenge, and people have given up on God and Jesus because of it.
I still hang on to Jesus because I have more with Him than without Him.
I can say honestly that He helps me always, even if He does not heal me always.
One day I will ask Jesus why healings didn’t happen in the same way in my life.
But until that day, I will keep reaching out to Jesus, to get whatever help I can.
Some may see this as weak, but in fact reaching out to Jesus makes me stronger!
PRAYER
Lord, thank You for helping me in so many ways. Please show those who struggle with sickness that You are helping them too. May they find more with You than without You!

  1. The people recognized Him immediately.
    And today, where is the Lord of my life? Do I recognize His presence everywhere?
    And the people brought the sick and they were healed. The Lord continues to be present as I serve Him in His kingdom. And He continues to heal. At times the disease is taken from us and at times we are taken out of the disease. And everyday I need to walk in His SonShine for He is with me everywhere I go. I am always in His presence.

    When we walk with the Lord in the light of his Word
    What a glory he sheds on our way!
    While we do his good will, he abides with us still,
    And with all who will trust and obey.

  3. The people recognized Jesus – and they saw hope for healing – and so they brought the sick on mats etc. Jesus is the hope of the world – he was the long awaited Messiah – he is the only way to the Father – he is the Good news. I too look to Jesus as my hope. May I walk with him every hour of every day. Jesus you are my hope!

  4. As soon as they got out of the boat, people recognized Jesus. (Mark 6: 54)
    Today Jesus spirit is with His disciples — who live with Him, for Him, and in Him. As a disciple of Jesus I am challenged to reflect him and pray that wherever I go people will recognize Jesus living in me.
