Believing in His Healing Touch

Believing in His Healing Touch

Mark 9:20-24 (NKJV)

20 Then they brought him to Him. And when he saw Him, immediately the spirit convulsed him, and he fell on the ground and wallowed, foaming at the mouth.

21 So He asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?” And he said, “From childhood.

22 And often he has thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.”

23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”

There is power in the Name of Jesus.  We see a man crying out to Jesus for the healing of his son and he believes Jesus can heal him.  We also see in verse 22:

22 And often he has thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.”

the father’s cry for his own Spiritual healing.  We see two healings by the father believing.  Now we do not know how many prayers the father has cried out, or prayers of others for this situation, but we do see a father seeking Jesus.  His compassion for his son and the need for healing brought him to Jesus.  Jesus healed both through the belief of the father. 

We see a physical healing and a Spiritual healing.  This shows us that as many ways as the child hurt this also hurt the father and he knew it was out of his hands.  He came to Jesus and turned all his needs over and through his belief Jesus healed them both. 

What do you need to lay before Jesus today?  A healing physically, mentally, emotionally, Spiritually, financially, your marriage, your relationships, or to know the love of Jesus that you have been missing all these years.  Just believe, Just believe, Just Believe, and yes JUST BELIEVE that He loves you, hears you and is there for you.  So, cry out to the One who knows your needs and give Him all the Glory in what He does for you.

Father:

We thank You for Your love for us.  Thank You Jesus for going to the cross for us because You love us.  Thank You that we can call out to You and that our prayers are heard, and we trust in Your perfect timing and in Your will Father.  Thank You for knowing my needs before I cry out to You.  Your love is amazing, and I believe in You.

In Your Son’s Holy Name I pray, Amen.
