Psalm 13:5 (NKJV) “But I have trusted in Your mercy; My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.”
There is no confusion in the Word of God, Jesus stood at the tomb of Lazarus and the Bible says, “Jesus wept”. Jesus was moved with compassion and He cried before He let out that famous phrase, “Lazarus come forth!” and he that was dead came forth. Halleluyah! God wants us to operate with compassion just like Jesus did. If you are reading this today and you are trusting God for healing, listen Jesus feels your pain and He wants to heal you. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever! He is forever compassionate; just reach out and Jesus will heal you.
A while ago, in a season just like this one, we felt God saying, “Won’t it be a good thing if everybody in church operates in the healing anointing?” We were very excited at the thought of everybody raising the dead and healing the sick. The people in the community will grab unto our skirts as the Bible describes. And by God’s grace, as we show up in people’s homes, we will not show up with a chip on our shoulders, we will show up filled with compassion. We will feel their pain, weep out of compassion, and we will raise the dead, in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
We are trusting God that it will please Him in this season, to release the healing anointing to as many as desire it and by His Spirit, we will operate in it by love and compassion. Repeatedly, in the Bible, we see instances where Jesus would say, “your faith has made you whole”. Our assignment today is to find out the difference between being healed and being made well. Do we still have collaborative Bible study groups? If you have not been doing it then it is time to wake it up. Take this discourse to your collaborative Bible study groups (whether virtual or physical). As you gather in Jesus Name, He will show up and be magnified.
Please read Acts 3:1-26, 4:1-12. This is the story of when Peter and John healed the crippled man at the beautiful gate. They got thrown into jail on account of this and were eventually released and instructed not to speak about Jesus again. But they said, “who do we obey – you are God?” Then, Peter said while addressing a very large crowd in Acts 4:12 “There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.” There is no name under heaven, or given unto man, by which we must be saved. Except at the Name of Jesus.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I put my trust in Your compassion, in Your unfailing love and I am confident that my heart will rejoice in Your salvation, in Jesus Name. Amen!
