Re: God Is Willing And Ready To Heal You
“Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.”
Here, we see a leper who came to Jesus saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean”
This man didn’t have a problem believing that Jesus had the ability and power to heal him. He just wasn’t sure if Jesus was willing to do it for him. Look at Jesus’ response to the leper and see God’s heart for you where healing is concerned. Jesus answered the leper by touching him and saying, “I am willing; be cleansed”.
What did Jesus say? “I am willing.” Did He just say it and do nothing? No, He stretched forth His hand to the leper and restored the afflicted man to wholeness.
In a related story about Jesus’ encounter with a Roman soldier, when approached that the soldier had a servant of his who was in a terrible health condition, we notice Jesus’ readiness to heal, in his words to the centurion asking “Shall I come and heal him?”
The Bible says in Prov3:27-28 that we are not to say to our neighbour “Go and come back later when we have what it is they are asking for?
This reveals His position on receiving anything from Him.
Beloved, God wants you to know that He is both willing AND ready right now to heal you. Start to realize and believe that He wants you healed!

Lord, help me to understand more and more everyday your willingness and readiness to see me healed. Give me a better understanding of your finished work on the cross in Jesus name.
