It’s God’s Will To Heal You:
And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. —Mark 1:40-42
The average Christian is in the same position as this leper was. He believes God is able to heal, but he doesn’t know whether or not it’s God’s will to heal. The leper knew the ability of Jesus. He came and said, “Lord, if You will, You can make me clean.” I’ve heard the same thing from people in prayer lines. They stand there praying, “Oh, Lord, I know You’re able to heal me.” But knowing God is able isn’t enough; it’s just a starting point. Knowing God’s ability is about 25 percent of the answer. The other 75 percent is knowing His will. The one hindrance standing between the leper and his miracle was revealed in his statement: “If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.” The same is true for people all over the world. If you asked if they’re convinced it’s God’s will to heal them, they’d probably answer, “I sure hope so.” That’s strong hope—not faith. Faith always begins where God’s will is known. “I know God heals some,” you may say. But only when you know it’s God’s will to heal you, do you reach the beginning point of faith.
Confession: I know without a doubt it’s my Father’s will to heal me. I have confident assurance that He desires my healing even more than I do. Healing is mine now!
