POWER PRESENT TO HEAL
Now it happened on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come out of every town of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was present to heal them.
The Presence of the Lord was in the room. Luke said “the power of the Lord” was present to heal. Luke was describing the power, dunamis, of the Holy Spirit. Of course God had anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power to heal the sick, but this was different. There was an unusual presence in the house. Something incredible was about to happen. Shortly after this, there was a noise on the roof. Four men were tearing a hole in the roof! Then, they began to lower a paralyzed man down in at the feet of Jesus. Within a few moments, the paralyzed man was on his feet. He was rolling up his pallet. He was going home. He was going home, healed! The people were filled with amazement and began to glorify the Lord. What else could you do? God’s power had been seen. The lame man was well. Our only response can be adoration of our Blessed Lord.
Jesus has not changed. He is pouring out His power in these last days to glorify His name. Maybe you or someone you know needs a miracle. Don’t despair, the power of the Lord is still being poured out. His presence is here now to heal you of your infirmities. How will it happen for you? Maybe through the laying on of hands, or during a time of intimate worship, or during the preaching of God’s Word, or maybe during your Bible reading time. He heals many different ways. The power of the Lord is present to heal. The atmosphere is beginning to change, something wonderful is about to happen. Put yourself in a position to receive. Get hungry for God. Maybe you won’t tear off someone’s roof, but press in, a miracle is coming toward you.
