12/09 Matthew 8:1-4
Large crowds followed Jesus as he came down the mountainside. 2 Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached him and knelt before him. “Lord,” the man said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.” 3 Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared. 4 Then Jesus said to him, “Don’t tell anyone about this. Instead, go to the priest and let him examine you. Take along the offering required in the law of Moses for those who have been healed of leprosy. This will be a public testimony that you have been cleansed.”
Yes, Lord, I want to be healed. Do you? Ask Him to heal you, plead your case and He will do the right thing. We seldom know what the right thing is but the Lord always knows the right thing to do and He will do it. Commit yourself to live with the Lord’s decision and continue with your life. All good things come from Him. Trust in Him. He is a rewarder of those who believe in Him and obey Him.
