He is WillingTuesday, October 11, 2016
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.” Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared.
I'd say leprosy was a pretty big deal. You would be considered an outcast, with little to no hope. The man in Matthew 8 though, must have heard about JESUS. He must've heard that He can heal the sick! He had hope, He knew Jesus could heal him!
Most us know Jesus 'can' heal us. We know He 'can' prosper us. We know He 'can' bless us.
The question for many of us is the same question the leper had, is He WILLING!?"
Jesus is answering your question the same way He answered that leper, " I am willing"
Whatever it is that you are in need of, HE IS WILLING!
Whatever you are believing for, HE IS WILLING!
Start rejoicing now!
