John 5:11: But he answered them, “The man who healed me, that man said to me, ‘Take up your bed, and walk.'” (ESV)
Healing takes a pride of place in the narrative of the life of Jesus. He is the one who carried away our sicknesses and our diseases (Matthew 8:16-17). He gives the mandate of healing to the church saying if we lay our hands on the sick they will recover (Mark 16:15-17).
Jesus healed in many ways: By casting out devils, laying on of hands, spoken words, touching. There is nothing too difficult for him to do on the healing dimension.
But in a place, he was unable to heal many because of the unbelief of the people. That means unbelief can block the flow of the healing anointing from Jesus. The opposite is also true.
For a woman suffering for twelve years in an issue of blood, touching the hem of the garment of Jesus even without his knowledge brought her instant relief (Luke 8:43-48). Jesus healed without even knowing about it. He is the sun of righteousness with healing in his wings, according to Malachi (Malachi 4:2).
Healing is no magic, it is about the presence of Jesus. While he was in a house, teaching the bible says that the power of God was present to heal (Luke 5:17-26). Let his healing presence touch you today. Amen.
