And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, “I will; be thou clean.” Mark 1:41
This was an account of a leper who met Jesus and asked for healing. “And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, “I will; be thou clean. And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.” (Mark 1:40-42). Jesus was moved with compassion. Wow! The leper knew Jesus had the power to heal him of the leprosy and restore his health but he wasn’t sure Jesus would be willing to do that. The response of Jesus was awesome. First, he was moved with compassion, and to show how willing He was to heal the man, he put forth his hand, and touched the leper (something that was never done n Israel in those days). It was a taboo for a leper to be seen in the midst of people let alone someone touching him. They were treated as outcasts because leprosy was a contagious disease. Jesus did not mind. To show His willingness, He still touched the man and healed him.
Many believers find themselves in that leper’s situation today. They know God has all power and can change their situation in a split second, but they don’t know whether He will be willing to do so. So they come to God without faith to receive, without an assurance that God will answer them, and so they don’t receive. Beloved, God is willing to heal you, bless you, deliver you, and give you that miracle you dearly seek. He is more willing to bless than you are willing to receive. Be confident and approach Him. Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
After attending business class one Saturday, as I got home, I met my son very ill. I could not trace what was wrong with him. I got my oil of gladness and used it to pray for him. Some minutes later, he was calm. That was the end of the evil attack. Praise God.
