Greetings to all,
In Mark 1:40, a man who was a leper came to Jesus with a statement. This statement went like this: “If you are willing you can make me clean.”
A leper was considered unclean; he wasn’t allowed to go out into public place. He was also supposed to shout out the words “unclean, unclean” when someone would come close to him. He had never heard of Jesus healing anyone with leprosy therefore he didn’t know if Jesus was willing to heal him or not.
He had to know God’s will before he believed for his healing. This is where many people stumble when it comes to having faith for healing their bodies. Many have not understood that Jesus demonstrated His willingness to heal every disease by healing people everywhere He went and healing every kind of sickness. There was no disease that Jesus was unwilling to heal.
In Matthew 12:15 we read, “And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.” I can only imagine the different kinds of healings that took place within that great multitude. Jesus was willing to heal them all then and He is still willing to heal today.
Jesus said to the leper, “‘I am willing; be cleansed.” As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed” (Mark 1:41-42).
Oh what joy this man experienced, having been cleansed by Jesus!
You need to understand that, no matter what situation you find yourself in today, Jesus is willing to come into your situation and bring healing to fix that which is broken and to bring freedom to that area of your life that is bound.
Jesus never turned His back on anyone who came to him in faith seeking His help.
Rejoice today because He has compassion for you…
Love to all …pb
When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses” (Matthew 8:16).
