Showers of Blessing!

Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” Matthew 9:29

Jesus Christ, during His entire ministry had compassion on the people and healed everyone who was sick. He was willing to heal anyone who needed healing. We see in Matthew 8:16 that “He cast out the spirits with a word and healed all who were sick.”

It is rather sad to hear when men of God preach that sickness was given to them to teach people a lesson.  I have heard them preach that you should have brokenness and suffering from God. I don’t understand why people listen to such teaching and I came to the conclusion that it is because people do not read the Word. Was there anyone in the Holy Bible during Jesus’ Christ ministry that He did not heal?

I know people who believe that sickness is given by God. Jesus Christ does not want to teach you a lesson by giving you sickness. It is the devil who brings sickness in you. John 10:10 says, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.”

We read in Matthew 10:1,”And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.”

In Matthew 8 we see how Jesus Christ healed a leper, the Centurion’s servant and Peter’s mother-in-law and in verse 16 we see that “He healed all who were sick.” He told the leper, “I am willing, be cleansed” and to the Centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed so let it be done for you.” That is the mind of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!

In Matthew 8:17 we see that “He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sickness.”

Believe that Jesus Christ is still willing to heal you. He loves you. Read the Word and you will understand the depth of His love for you. He has been good to me all of my life. He is such a loving God. Walk closely with Jesus as Enoch walked with God (See Genesis 5:22 & 24).

Showers of Blessing!

“I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Psalm 34:1

Hallelujah! Praise be to the Lord Jesus Christ! Where would I be without the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? His praise is always in my mouth. He has done wonderful and mighty and awesome things in our lives. Those were miracles which are beyond my imagination. He is still in the process of mighty miracles. I believe “His eyes are always on us” (See 1 Peter 3:12).

“He has hedged me behind and before, and laid His hand upon me Psalm 139:5. I know for sure that He will not forget me. See I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands.” (See Isaiah 49:15-16).  My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is a wonderful God.  I cannot stop praising Him at any time. “He has put His words in my mouth and has covered me with the shadow of His hand.” (See Isaiah 51:16).

I cannot “go from His Spirit or flee from His presence. If I ascend into heaven, You are there…….Even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.” (See Psalm 139:7 – 10)

What a wonderful God we serve. “The LORD has called me from the womb; from the matrix of my mother He has made mention of my name. And He has made my mouth like a sharp sword, in the shadow of His hand He has hidden me, and made me a polished shaft; in His quiver He has hidden me.” (See Isaiah 49:1 – 2)

Hallelujah! It is a privilege to serve the LORD Jesus Christ “Who formed me from the womb to be His servant.” (See Isaiah 49:5)

Thank you Jesus!
