I was teaching at a healing school in Las Vegas. Afterwards, as I was praying for the sick, a woman asked me if I would pray for her husband who came with her to the meeting, but when he saw the number of people to be prayed for he walked out and went and sat in the parking lot.
Knowing that faith needs action to produce a miracle I responded to her request, “You tell him if he comes back into the service I will pray for him.” She went out and gave him the message and he returned to be prayed for.
He was suffering great pain from a torn rotator cuff and was due to have surgery in a couple weeks. As I put my hands on his shoulder we could hear and feel things popping from deep within his shoulder area. Glory to God, the man was healed and set free from all pain!
But he almost missed out on the blessing of healing that the Lord had for him that night. And it makes me wonder how many times we have missed our healing because we felt discouraged or afraid.
Jesus doesn’t want anyone to miss out on their healing. He is willing to heal all those that come to Him. We are reminded of His willingness to heal in Luke 5:12-13 when a man with leprosy came to Him. This man was uncertain if the Lord would heal him, but Jesus responded to this man’s discouraged heart.
While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him. (NIV)
