TOPIC: PRAISE GOD FOR HEALING
Bible Text: Mark 10:46-52
“Go, said Jesus, your faith has healed you. Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.” Mark 10:52, NIV
I unexpectedly experienced a terrible shift in my face in 2005 which prevented my eyes from closing on its own, my mouth could not retain water, eating became a nightmare and my ears were half blocked. As a result of these abnormalities, sleeping became very difficult such that one of those thirty nights, I almost passed out but for the mercy of God. Prayer of faith did the healing without any medication. Praise the Lord!
The passage today brought to the fore the healing of Bartimaeus. He was a blind beggar who sought for the mercy of God when Jesus passed by his begging spot.
Though rebuked by the crowd, he was more resolved to get the attention and help of Jesus. Eventually, by exercising faith in Jesus he was healed of his blindness and followed Jesus out of gratitude.
Have you ever prayed and waited for healing and got healed? Then turn to God and praise Him. It is a sign of humility for you to acknowledge God as your healer. If you are trusting God for healing, believe, pray and receive yours with thanksgiving.
Insight: Healing should motivate us to praise and serve God.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for being my healer. Heal me and others who are sick in Jesus’ name.
