Do you want to be made well?

July 25th, 2012

I was reading the story of the man who was healed by Jesus by the pool yesterday. It is found in John 5:1-15.

Verse 6 grabbed my attention. It says, “When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?

Jesus approached this man and asked if he wanted to be healed. This is very different from the Leper in Matthew 8:2 who approached Jesus or the lady just wanted to touch His cloak to be healed (Matthew 9:20).

I find it interesting that most times in the Bible people approached Jesus for healing, but this time He approached the man.

But why the question “Do you want to get well?”

As someone who suffered for many years of my life with Rheumatoid Arthritis I know that sometimes people lose hope. We know God heals, but when it doesn’t happen, we can get frustrated and start to wonder if it ever will.

But like the man by the pool, I received my healing too. It didn’t take 38 years to come but it did take a long time. And yes at times I was frustrated, but I never stopped believing God could heal me.

Today I want to join my faith with yours if you are in need of healing. It might just be words on a screen, but know I am praying for you and I believe God can heal you right now…

Heaven Father, I pray today that You will bring healing to people who are reading this. Right now we join our faith together. We know that You are Almighty God and You can do all things. Nothing is impossible to You God. Please heal peoples bodies now in the name of Jesus. Heal cancer. Heal Arthritis. Heal Diabetes. Heal Depression. Restore sight to the blind. Open ears to hear. Heal the lame. Bring Your miraculous healing power to pass. Touch Your children with healing now Lord, we ask in Jesus name, Amen.

Some people feel may feel an incredible peace after they pray. Others might feel warmth or tingling on the part of the body they prayed for. This is some of the ways God touches us when He heals us.

As a result of this prayer I believe I will receive emails from people telling me of a mighty work that God has done.

God Bless,
