No Matter What

Luke 4:38 After leaving the synagogue that day, Jesus went to Simon’s home, where he found Simon’s mother-in-law very sick with a high fever. “Please heal her,” everyone begged. 39 Standing at her bedside, he rebuked the fever, and it left her. And she got up at once and prepared a meal for them. 40 As the sun went down that evening, people throughout the village brought sick family members to Jesus. No matter what their diseases were, the touch of his hand healed everyone. 41 Many were possessed by demons; and the demons came out at his command, shouting, “You are the Son of God!” But because they knew he was the Messiah, he rebuked them and refused to let them speak.

Jesus responded to the needs of the people. After healing Simon's mother-in-law people throughout the village were bringing sick family members to Him for healing. Why? Because He has the power to heal diseases and no matter what diseases, Jesus healed them. Along with healing the people, Jesus responded to many who had demons and those demons would come out as He commanded. Jesus had command of the situation, no matter what He encountered

Jesus also still has command of the situations in our lives and still responds to the needs we present to HIm. It is important for us to bring all our needs to Him in prayer, no matter what they are and He will respond. There is a growing belief among many of the faith that Jesus no longer heals. Jesus does still heal and He still responds to all that we face and He responds in victory because we are living in His victory over all those things that come at us. The belief that Jesus is distant and unavailable is wrong and we must never let that kind of weak, apathetic attitude be a part of our walk. If Jesus is not available for us in our sickness and suffering, then how can He be available when it comes to our heavenly home? As you can see, this watered-down way of looking at a very present Savior is flawed at best and lines us more with worldly and humanistic thinking than the Word of God.

Do not be deceived, we serve a very present Savior who is intimately involved and working in our present life situations. Our sanctification process will show us more and more how Jesus still heals and works in all of our life situations, no matter what they are. The last thing we need to believe as Christians is that God has deserted us to whatever the world throws at us. Even in the instance of Jesus healing Simon's mother-in-law he rebuked the fever and it left her. Whatever your ailments are, Jesus can still rebuke those and work a very present healing. Jesus still works and He heals No Matter What the problem, because He is God and He loves us.

The Pilgrimage Continues,
