Matthew 12:15 (KJV) ~ “…and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all.”

Matthew 12:15 (KJV) ~ “…and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all.” 

The last few words of this verse grabbed my attention, “And He healed them all.” Healing is for everyone. Notice, if you will, in our text for today it says, “and the great multitudes followed Him.” Not just one or two, but a great multitude followed Jesus, and no one person went away disappointed. It did not depend upon how great their faith was in healing, but how great their faith was in the healer

It is very interesting to note that the first person to be healed after prayer was an unbeliever in Genesis 20:17 (KJV), “So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children.” The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and affective. Healing is for the believer as well as the unbeliever who has yet to come to Christ Jesus. 

The Bible says in Colossians 2:6 (NIV), “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him.” Just as you received Christ Jesus by faith into your life so continue to receive from Him for every area of your life. The multitudes came to Jesus Christ for healing, for a miracle, but the best thing to go to Jesus Christ for is to follow Him, because out of that close relationship with Jesus you can have a miracle every day.

Why is it that sometimes healing one of the hardest things to believe God for? Is it that our prayers for those who need a miracle seem empty and devoid of power? When those words are whispered into your ear, rise up and tell those seeds of doubt from the enemy of souls it is written in Exodus 15:26 (KJV), “For I am (JEHOVAH ROPHE) the LORD that healeth thee.”

My friend, Jesus Christ came not only to save souls but to heal the sick, and to reveal many other manifestations of the power of God. If you are in need today reach out to Jesus, take Him at His word for He came to heal them all. 

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
