The verses I pasted in at the bottom are taken out of 2 Timothy, as Paul spoke to his son Timothy. You will notice the entire chapter, or book will bring tears to your cheeks and fill your heart w joy. You can feel Pauls love for his son, moreover Pauls joy that his son is serving the Lord as Pauls does. It is the biggest blessing to have a pupel go forth and be amazing at what you mentored them in, add the layer of a father and you can see how emense his joy is. How cool is that right!!! The message to me is what about our Heavenly Father, how much greater does He rejoice upon seeing His creation, His children stand up and go forth pursuing our gifts and being successful. WOW right, well today I ask that you say Thank You Lord for all that you have given me. Let today be a day of thanks and praise!! In fact this entire weekend!!!
If you need some help jumping into that thankful and praise mode let me peel this back a little further for you. The right to pray and receive the answer is given to every believer! (John 14:13, 14). The ministry of healing was given to the 70 who represented the future workers of the church (Luke 10:1, 9,19) It was given to all " them that believe" the gospel, them that act on the gospel, and the doers of the word. ((( this means it IS given to you, if you choose to take it )))
Further, you will discover It is committed to "the elders" of the church. (James 5:14). The gift of healing, is put upon the whole church as one of its ministries and gifts until Jesus comes ( 1 Corinthians 12:9, 10). Remember the church is the body of believers, and where two or more are gathered in His name. Not an actual congregation of a specific church.
Jesus never commission anyone to preach the gospel without including healing for the sick. To preach is not exclusive to being at a pulpit... Think about that. He said "whatever city you enter, heal the sick that are there (Luke 10:8,9) That Command still applies to gospel ministry today, again this can be you too, any of us! Broaden your minds here and follow me, verses allow yourself to start drawing conclusions, okay. ((Heal (Rapha) me, O Lord, and I shall be healed (Rapha); save me, and I shall be saved. Jeremiah 17:14)).
The nature of God is such that his heart intensely yearns to heal and repair his creation (That is All of Us). Mankind has become so terribly marred by sin, sorrow, evil and the countless disorders which plague the physical, emotional, mental, behavioral and spiritual components of our beings. All creation in general the human race in particular is groaning and travailing over the complex burdens which resulted from sin. Those burdens include sickness, birth defects, emotional illness, compelling behavioral dysfunctions, death, a host of inexpressible heart aches, alienation,loneliness, famine, Bereavement, loss, futility and everything else which is contrary to God's design and desire for His people. It is for God's own sake that He steadfastly desires to repair those blotches on his beautiful handiwork so today let Him repair a blotch in you. Let Him heal you. And choose to believe it is done you're healing is done, it is underway, except His love and His grace and say thank you. Thank you Lord, hallelujah!!
“I thank God, whom I serve, as my ancestors did, with a clear conscience, as night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers. Recalling your tears, I long to see you, so that I may be filled with joy.” 2 Timothy 1:3-4 NIV
