EXPECT TO BE HEALED

By John Eckhardt

"And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment." —Matthew 9:20, NKJV

Recently, the Lord has impressed me to share with God's people the importance of putting a demand on the anointing. The word demand means "a seeking or state of being sought after." It means pressing forward despite obstacles to get to a place where the anointing is and expecting it to fall on you.

The woman with the issue of blood put a demand on the healing anointing and received her miracle. She expected that once she pushed through that crowd, pushed past the disappointment of years of failed treatments, and pushed against the stigma of being unclean, she would be healed.

Too often God's people do not receive miracles and healing because they do not place a demand on the anointing. They don't push forward because they don't expect that something miraculous will happen.

Sometimes believers let themselves get discouraged. Let me tell you this: Don't let the devil talk you out of your healing. Put your mind on God. You have to press through discouragement and frustration so that you don't miss your miracle. Don't let anyone stop you. You have to press through—press through traffic, press through the parking lot, press through people coming in the door—but don't get upset. Just stay in the Spirit and get to the place where the anointing is and reach up and get your miracle. Just like the woman who pressed, reached and was healed by touching Jesus' garment, you too can press, reach up and grab your healing.

Healing is available to all during the kingdom age. It is amazing that some Christians still believe that God puts sickness on His people. Some may ask, "God, why do You allow this sickness to come upon my body?" They feel, or may have been told by a church leader, that it is the will of God for them to suffer sickness and not be healed.

However, that is not biblical. God does not put sickness on His people. Jesus died so that we might be healed. I do believe that there are times when God allows sickness, especially for rebellion or disobedience. But for God's people, we can expect to live in health and be healed of all our diseases because of what Jesus did on the cross.

When Jesus came He announced the coming of the kingdom of God. In the kingdom of God, where His presence and glory dwell, no sin or sickness can coexist. We are in the kingdom of God now, but it is not fully manifested. However, it can be established in your life and in your heart.

Wherever Jesus preached the message of the kingdom, He healed people. Healing accompanies the kingdom message. This is the kingdom age where you don't have to be sick, broke or run over by the devil. That is good news! You don't have to be sick, broke, poor or confused any longer. Sickness and disease are works of the devil, and Jesus came and "disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them. Triumphing over them" (Col. 2:15). Healing comes with the territory. When you are in Christ, you can expect to be healed.

Mark 16:17-18 says, "And these signs will follow those who believe; In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; and they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."

So not only should you expect to be healed, but you should also know that you are to pass that healing on to all those around you. That is true kingdom living.

PRAYER POWER FOR THE WEEK OF 9/20/2010

This week thank the Lord that He is your Healer and has made all provision for your spiritual, emotional, mental and physical healing. Thank Him that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever and no respecter of persons. Embrace His work of grace in your life and ingest an arsenal of scripture to combat all the darts of the enemy. Pray for opportunities for God to use you to pray for the sick. When you pray for our nation, continue to remember those suffering loss through unemployment, foreclosures and natural disasters. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, our military, and the upcoming elections. Col.2:15; Mark 16:17-18
