“Jesus ministered from place to place throughout all of the province of Galilee. He taught in the synagogues, preaching the hope of the kingdom realm and healing every kind of sickness and disease among the people. His fame spread everywhere! Many people who were in pain and suffering with every kind of illness were brought to Jesus for their healing—epileptics, paralytics, and those tormented by demonic powers were all set free. Everyone who was brought to Jesus was healed!” Matthew 4:23-24 TPT
What would it have been like for those who are sick to meet with Jesus that day, imagine it. Dwell on the picture. Become part of the crowd.
Imagine someone with your pain or sickness seeing Jesus that day:
See how he healed others with just a word or touch. No great dramas or show just loving words and simple touch. Moving gently along as each person is healed. Great authority and love in action revealed.
See the joy the expressed by those who were healed. See them jump and dance, praising Jesus for what he had done. Rejoicing with family or friends over the change. Running to bring others for whom sickness remained. A lame man is pulled to his feet and now running. A leper is clean and whole and hugging his family. A once deaf and mute woman singing at the top of her voice. Children who were crippled beggars are dancing and playing with limbs and sight healed. So much rejoicing with tears of joy flowing freely.
See the crowd swarm Jesus so each one could be healed. Hearing the words of amazement as Jesus power was revealed. Hearing gasps of amazement and wonder by all.
And imagine deciding that you’ll join the fray. Pushing your way towards Jesus for healing that day. Hoping against hope that He will touch you and bring healing and wholeness to your body again.
And just when you think maybe you will miss out. Jesus turns towards you with a smile on his face. “Be healed beloved, go in peace without sickness or pain.” He knew what you needed without you having to explain.
You feel his power coursing through your body. The power of his love and his authority. The touch of his hand on your face says it all. His love and healing is for you as well.
Basking in that moment. Jesus touch and smile. His power and love focused on you now. Jesus loving you as God’s Beloved child. The gentle touch, the welcome in his eyes. And his powerful love sweeping all sickness aside. Peace, joy and wholeness enter into your body, filling the places pain and sickness used to occupy, becoming your new reality. For nothing can stand against Jesus authority.
Rejoice, dance, sing and praise Jesus for His powerful love that brings healing and wholeness. Feel strength and freedom of movement in your body again.
Kneel at His feet in wonder and awe, our wonderful Saviour and loving Lord.
