Treasures from Heaven
- Healing -
Later this morning, as I was reading Oral Roberts’ book If You Need Healing, Do These Things”, Chapter 4 (Touching Christ to be made Whole), about the woman who touched his garment and was made whole, It was clear that Jesus did not know who the person was that touched his garment, even as I did not know who was praying to God for healing when the Holy Spirit poured out of me to heal the bone marrow situation. Although I didn’t know anyone who needed that healing, the Holy Spirit did and responded to them via the Holy Spirit within me.
Returning to Oral Roberts' book: Jesus said to the woman with the issue of blood, “Woman, thy faith hath made thee whole”! It is obvious that touching His garment did not heal her (garments have no power) and Jesus did not even know to pray for her, but the Holy Spirit did. Jesus told the people that the reason he knew someone was healed was because He felt the healing power (virtue) flow out of Him. Jesus had the anointing power for her healing, and she had the faith to bring it to pass. Her faith triggered His spirit to make her whole.
This woman’s faith had been built from hearing about the mighty healings and miracles the Lord had recently done in Judea. She had spent all her money on doctors and was at the end of herself. Only God could heal her. She was desperate and was determined that if she could touch even his garment her healing would occur. Going forward in faith, she touched the hem of His garmet, the Holy Spirit heard her prayers and recognized her faith. She did and the Holy Spirit did!
I may not know whose bone marrow problem was healed this morining until I am in heaven, but I am thankful for it. God is soooo Gooood! Friends.....it is so important to read the Bible and listen to God’s ministers because as it is written.....”Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God”! And, God hears your prayers!
