Daily Devotional – Healing Flowed From Jesus

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Luke 6:17-22. Everywhere that Jesus went, He had a swarm of people following. The word was out, He cared for and healed those that asked. 

“He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sidon, 18 who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by impure spirits were cured, 19 and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all.

20 Looking at his disciples, he said:

“Blessed are you who are poor,
    for yours is the kingdom of God.
21 Blessed are you who hunger now,
    for you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who weep now,
    for you will laugh.
22 Blessed are you when people hate you,
    when they exclude you and insult you
    and reject your name as evil,
        because of the Son of Man.”

Actions and testimony attracts people

Before Jesus was taken up to heaven to be seated on the throne, He said that we, His followers, would perform miracles as He did. In fact not just the same, but miracles that would exceed the power and effectiveness.

As I look around now, I can’t recall the last time I was taken back and marveled at a miracle that I heard of. I can’t remember the last time someone prayed for the sight of someone, and to hear them tell of their miracle of sight. This was a daily occurrence while Jesus walked this earth and He promised us that we would see it.

I believe that the greatest attraction to the Kingdom of God is the miracles of compassion and love. The testimony and actions people see draw them to the throne of God like nothing else. Let us each draw nearer to God to understand what each of us can do to see His healing miracles in our communities.

Let’s Pray

Dear Father, 

You healed so many people through Jesus during His time on earth. I desire to see You heal and change the lives of people around me too. Use me as Your hands of healing and love today!

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen
