Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. 3 John 2 NKJV
We've been in a study of God's Grace pertaining to healing. We've seen that God is the hope we cling to. We've seen that our focus should be Jesus and not our imperfections. Last time we explored how our sins and shortcomings won't deter us from receiving what Grace has already provided.
Continuing along this line, I felt compelled to explore God's goodness and His Grace deeper when it comes to healing. I want to share a divine healing and wholeness truth I have never heard anyone minister. This doesn't mean it hasn't been ministered somewhere before, it's just I haven't personally heard anyone minister on this.
In order to illustrate this truth I want us to revisit a passage in Mark's Gospel and see God's healing Grace in action. We saw in an earlier post in Mark 5, the account of the healing of the woman with the issue of blood, reveals God's healing in the gift of righteousness. Surrounding this account we also see the healing of Jairus' daughter. To save time you can read the full account of this marvelous healing here.
In this powerful passage of God's healing mercy and Grace, we see many wonderful truths revealed. In verse 38 and 39 of this passage Jesus hears the commotion and sees the dreary and depressing atmosphere, He interjects faith, hope, and joy into the situation. In the remaining passages Jesus dispels the doubt and removes the unbelieving ones and ministers resurrection life and healing to the child.
This account of the healing of Jairus holds all these truths of walking in wholeness. Trusting in Jesus alone, keeping your joy, and dispelling doubt. Yet there is one thing Jesus told Jairus that is critical.
