“And Jesus answered them, ‘Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them.’” Matthew 11:4-5 //
In Matthew 11, John the Baptist is calling out from prison, asking if Jesus really is the One he has been waiting for. John knew who Jesus was, but he was in a desperate situation and his faith was waning. There are times when we can all resonate with John. When we are feeling desperate, our perspective becomes blurred, and we start to lose faith.
Jesus, out of his kindness, responds with the passage above. He isn’t frustrated or annoyed; instead He simply reminds John that He is the God who will step into pain and bring healing. Jesus is still the same today.
HE WANTS TO STEP INTO OUR LIVES AND REVIVE OUR PLACES OF PAIN.
This past Sunday, we were stirred with faith for Jesus to move and bring healing to those who were in need. We paused during our service and took a few moments to pray for anyone who was experiencing pain.
I am so thankful Jesus hears our prayers and is faithful to answer them. After we prayed, one woman said her shoulder pain was completely alleviated. Another woman came to church believing for healing. After praying, she experienced healing in both her ankle and her back.
These are just two of the testimonies from Sunday morning, and I’m sure there are many more. Hearing about the healing power of Jesus will never get old! He is always wanting to intervene in the midst of our pain and bring a breakthrough.
If you are experiencing physical pain today or if you are believing for God to bring a breakthrough in an area of your life, I believe God wants to meet you in that place. You don’t have to wait for Sunday morning to be healed. The same Jesus who healed the sick and made the blind see is waiting to step in and bring healing in your life. Just ask Him!
