Air Drop Healing
John 4:46 As he traveled through Galilee, he came to Cana, where he had turned the water into wine. There was a government official in nearby Capernaum whose son was very sick. 47 When he heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he went and begged Jesus to come to Capernaum to heal his son, who was about to die. 48 Jesus asked, “Will you never believe in me unless you see miraculous signs and wonders?” 49 The official pleaded, “Lord, please come now before my little boy dies.” 50 Then Jesus told him, “Go back home. Your son will live!” And the man believed what Jesus said and started home.
As Jesus traveled He would heal people who came to Him in person, but in the above case He healed this man's son from a distance. Jesus showed His great compassion about ministering and healing people and He also showed He was unlimited in His power to meet the needs of those who came to Him. This official's son was on the verge of death and he begged Jesus to come by Him to heal Him and Jesus healed Him right then without going to be near Him or touching him.
If you have an iphone you have probably done the "air drop" of information made possible through the technology of Apple. So, if you have something you want to share with one person or everyone in a room you can Air Drop that info without having to talk to them or meet with them. In verse 48 Jesus asked “Will you never believe in me unless you see miraculous signs and wonders?” Up to that point the main focus of the people that were following Jesus was to say "Come and see" the miracles of this man Jesus. But the point of what Jesus was doing with the healings was to lead people to a place of belief in Him as Savior and Lord. The man who's boy was dying begged Jesus and just wanted his son to live and Jesus diid the ultimate Air Drop Healing and no saw the healing but the man just believed and headed home. Look at what happened next in the following scripture. 51 While the man was on his way, some of his servants met him with the news that his son was alive and well.52 He asked them when the boy had begun to get better, and they replied, “Yesterday afternoon at one o’clock his fever suddenly disappeared!”53 Then the father realized that that was the very time Jesus had told him, “Your son will live.” And he and his entire household believed in Jesus.54 This was the second miraculous sign Jesus did in Galilee after coming from Judea.
If you are the type of person who needs to see a miracle to believe I just ask you to up your belief in the awesome power of our Savior much like this official who asked Jesus to heal His son. Believing without seeing it immediately speaks to our "quick-minded" attitude and makes it a stretch to just believe Jesus and then leave it there. So when you reaize that your prayer has been answered and the timing is just PERFECT, be sure and give God the glory in it and don't write it off as coincidence. Jesus can Air Drop anytime He wants to and we don't need to miss His perfect timing in our deepest hours of need. Jesus is our on-time God and His ways are higher than ours so elevate your thinking to realize the awesome power of God in your life situations.
