GOD IS WILLING AND ABLE

GOD IS WILLING AND ABLE

Matthew 8:1-3 (NKJV) When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. 2 And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” 3 Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.”  Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

One day, Jesus was coming down from a mountain where he had been praying to His Father, and a multitude followed Him.  Something happened next in this story that I want us to see today.

A leper came and worshiped Him.  Let us look at that for a moment.  If you want to get God’s attention, get your mind off of yourself, and get it on Him.  As we worship God, and I mean truly worship Him, (not just lifting our hands, but lifting our hearts) God hears us.

Then the leper said something that I think we have said many times, and that is, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me whole.”  Many times when things come against us, we want to know if God is willing to help us.  We can say it like this, “Is it God’s will to heal me, or even to heal anyone?”

Look at what Jesus does, and this will answer this question once and for all.  Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.”  Immediately his leprosy was cleansed!  Jesus settled it once and for all that it is God’s will to heal!

The leper basically said, “Lord I know you are able to heal; I have seen it.  But are you willing?”  Jesus, who is God in the flesh, said, “I AM WILLING!”  Once we know in our hearts that God, our Father, is willing to heal us, and we know that He is more than able to do it, then look out!  We are going to see results!

So today, find out what the Word says about what you are going through, and then let the God that is willing and able remove whatever it is that has come against you!

Confession:  I proclaim, today, that my Heavenly Father is willing, and able, to heal me of what I am going through.  He is the Father of Life, and His Word brings Life to all my flesh!
