“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us” (Ephesians 3:20).
Jesus commanded His disciples thus: “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:8). Notice they were not asked to pray for the sick per se. They were asked to ‘heal’ the sick. There is a huge difference. If you are asked to heal the sick, it means that you have the power of God at your disposal.
When you say: “I am not the healer,’ I know what you are trying to say. You mean it is not by your power that you heal. Those were Peter’s words when people marveled at him healing the man who had been lame from birth (Acts 3:12). Admitting that you can heal doesn’t take away the fact that it’s by the power of God that you can. The same Peter who admitted that he didn’t heal by his power said to the lame man: “Such as I have give I thee” (Acts 3:6). Friend, have confidence in the power of God at your disposal.
When you begin to realize that God has sent you to heal the sick, your approach and confidence will change. You will get conscious that the answer to people’s challenge is right inside you. As today’s text says, the power in you can do exceeding above what you can ever ask or think. Place a demand on it!
