It’s God’s Will To Heal You:



And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. —Mark 1:40-42

The average Christian is in the same position as this leper was. He believes God is able to heal, but he doesn’t know whether or not it’s God’s will to heal. The leper knew the ability of Jesus. He came and said, “Lord, if You will, You can make me clean.” I’ve heard the same thing from people in prayer lines. They stand there praying, “Oh, Lord, I know You’re able to heal me.” But knowing God is able isn’t enough; it’s just a starting point. Knowing God’s ability is about 25 percent of the answer. The other 75 percent is knowing His will. The one hindrance standing between the leper and his miracle was revealed in his statement: “If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.” The same is true for people all over the world. If you asked if they’re convinced it’s God’s will to heal them, they’d probably answer, “I sure hope so.” That’s strong hope—not faith. Faith always begins where God’s will is known. “I know God heals some,” you may say. But only when you know it’s God’s will to heal you, do you reach the beginning point of faith.

Confession: I know without a doubt it’s my Father’s will to heal me. I have confident assurance that He desires my healing even more than I do. Healing is mine now!

Please read these scriptures (Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24; Psalm 103:3; Matthew 4:23, 8:3. Revelation 22:6.)

Week # 3: Weekly prayer:

Father God, bless our hearts to know Your will for our lives. Your Word is a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path, show us, Lord. We wait on You, Lord. Your Word teach us that healing belongs to us. Your Word is the same today, yesterday, and forever more; Bless us to know this in our spiritual hearts. We have been deceit to think that Your Word has changed, but it has not! Bless us to know this, so we can walk in divine health today, and forever. Bless us to know that Your Word is truth. Give us discerning spirits and we will know You Who created us. Help us to remember what You said, when You said, “I will, be thou clean.” This will help us to know Your will is to heal us, because You love us. We thank and praise You for Your grace and mercy. In Jesus’ name, we pray, amen.

Quiz:

1). T or F: Sin is the cause of all sickness and infirmity.
TRUE______ OR FALSE______

The Bible do tells us that sin causes our sickness, and it was sent as a judgment; Scripture references: Leviticus 26:15, 16; Deuteronomy 28:61; 2 Chronicles 21:15; Psalm 107: 17, 18; Matthew 6:13. I would say, yes that is true.

2). According to Mark and Luke, a woman who had suffered for twelve years with a chronic bleeding condition had spent all her money seeking to be healed...

A. but was not healed, because she was being punished for her sin.
B. and finally died, then Jesus raised her from the dead.
C. but was lacking in faith, and so could not be healed.
D. and her condition had only worsened.
She grew worse with her condition. (H)

3). In answer to the question, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?" Jesus responded: Choose from A-D

A. "Yes, with the exception of Passover, the Feast of Booths, and Yom Kippur."

C. "What man is there among you who has one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will not lay hold of it and lift it out?"
D. "The Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath."

I believe that answer is (C)

According to this study: Questions:


1). When did the leprosy get healed in (Mark 1:40-42)?

It says, immediately he was healed

2). Explain Hebrews 11:1 to the best of your knowledge.

The meaning of the clause seems to be, that faith is a confidence that we shall receive the good things for which we hope, and that by it we enjoy, as it were, a present subsistence or anticipation of them in our souls. It also gives a foundation or ground for our expecting them; because by it we are justified, adopted into God’s family, and born of God’s Spirit, and, therefore, being his children, are heirs of the things for which we hope; namely, of happiness with Jesus immediately after death, of the glorious resurrection of the body at the time of Christ’s second coming, of acquittance and a gracious reception at his judgment-seat, and felicity and glory with him in the new heavens and new earth forever. The evidence — the conviction, persuasion, or demonstration, wrought in the mind; of things not seen — Of things invisible and eternal, of God and the things of God; giving us an assurance of them in some respects equal to that which our outward senses give us of the things of this visible and temporal world.

3). What is the difference between strong hope and faith?

The one hindrance standing between the leper and his miracle was revealed in his statement: “If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.” The same is true for people all over the world. If you asked if they’re convinced it’s God’s will to heal them, they’d probably answer, “ I sure hope so.” That’s strong hope—not faith. Faith always begins where God’s will is known. “I know God heals some,” you may say. But only when you know it’s God’s will to heal you, do you reach the beginning point of faith.

NUGGETS:



Obey what you already know to be God’s Will.

Many people seem to want to know what God’s plan is for their lives, but they overlook the fact that 98% of His will is already delineated carefully through His Word. God is very clear about many, many aspects of His will. For instance, it is clearly His plan that we abstain from sexual immorality (1 Thessalonians 4:3).
If we do not obey the things that God has shown us clearly to be His will, why would we think He would reveal any further information regarding His plan for our lives? Obedience is an important first step.

Question # 2

I want to say too, that we must remember that faith is what we don’t see at the moment, but believe in our hearts that God is able to reveal it to us in the natural realm, coming from the spiritual realm, which is here with us, we just have to believe that it will appear, amen.

Question # 3

I catch myself hoping a lot, but I must remember that I must have faith in God’s Word to be performed in my life, in my situation and any circumstances. I want to have faith in God and His Word!

I am getting to know God and His Word, but each and every day I am praying to know God's will for my life. I believe His will is good for me! Read Jeremiah 29:11, it tells you that.
