And wherever he went – into villages, towns or countryside – they placed the sick in the marketplaces. They begged him to let them touch even the edge of his cloak, and all who touched him were healed. Mark 6:56
I love this passage. But not just this passage. I love all of the scriptures where it talks about someone touching Jesus’ clothing to get healed.Can you even imagine?I mean, seriously, y’all. You can be healed from any disease or infirmity just by touching what the Son of God was wearing. You are chronically ill with a disease that no physician can diagnose, let alone cure and then you rub up against the Savior of the world and BAM!You’re healed.Let me encourage you with this today: The same power that conquered the grave lives in you and me.This power gives us everything we need for life and godliness as we live in this world to bring Him glory. Regardless of how the power of God is displayed in our lives, whether or not cancer is taken from our bodies or if we can walk again after a tragic accident, make no mistake about it…we have access to it as Christ Followers.I am a fairly healthy individual and by that I mean that I don’t have to go to the doctor often. However, I have two particular issues that I wish would just go away:High cholesterol and food addiction. After trying many routes in the last decade, my body has only responded to a prescription that has literally chopped my cholesterol levels in half. I don’t really want to take it but I also don’t want to follow in the footsteps of my grandparents and die prematurely from a heart attack leaving behind two devastated, little boys. So I take the medicine.And I would love it if I never had to eat again. I just wish food didn’t taste so good. But it does taste good and I like it and I sometimes overdo it and don’t stick to my plan and justify myself into a negative eating pattern.While these two areas of my life have been prayed and fasted over, they are issues I deal with. I don’t have a say as to where God will use His healing powers in my life, but I know He is still very capable. What I do know is that I will keep praying and believing that He will do what He says He will do even if it’s not according to what I think should happen.
Let’s pray for one another today.In what area(s) do you need healing?
