There are a lot of argument about healing and miracles. Many of those arguments are appalling because they come from people who should know better (Christian religious leaders.) They argue that signs and wonders, healing and miracles don’t happen again. I have made up mine mind to distance myself from such circles because such discussions are unbeneficial and boring. However, it is nothing new as you will find in the following scripture.
“On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.” Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.
Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue leader said to the people, “There are six days for work. So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath.”
The Lord answered him, “You hypocrites! Doesn’t each of you on the Sabbath untie your ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?”
When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated, but the people were delighted with all the wonderful things he was doing.” Luke 13:10-17.(NIV)
There are people who have the idea like “I don’t care if and when you are healed (or receive your miracle), for as long as it is not now. Some people consider talk about the Holy Spirit, miracles, healing, signs and wonders as “insanity” or misguided teaching.
My concern is about believers who need to enjoy the provision God made for their well-being. If you don’t believe in the supernatural, miracles, healing, sign and wonders, what are you in church for? If you don’t believe in God’s intervention in human affairs, what are you carrying the Bible for? A believer must come to terms with what the word of God teaches. God wants us to make heaven as well as enjoy his goodness on earth. There are a lot of pressures from the devil and many people need help. We can get help from God as we ask for it in prayers. We must persevere in hope for deliverance and victory over the powers of darkness.
The woman that Jesus healed was described as a “daughter of Abraham”. She must have been fervent in serving God but was content to live with her infirmity for life. The religious leaders of those days were not bothered about people’s problems. Like we read from the scripture, they ended up in embarrassment when Jesus exposed their errors. I believe in the power of God to intervene in human affairs. I have seen and experienced sign and wonders, miracles, deliverance, healing, etc.
Healing, miracles, sign and wonders are your portion. You can receive help now. Ask God for it; it won’t cost you anything; ask by faith. Do it now and never give up.
