Instant healing comes differently to every person. How long will you bear, suffer and struggle for your illnesses? Healing comes with a price from regular check ups, altering your daily habits and to having faith in God. It is a price to pay that should be worth it, since it is for your relief and comfort. It is another shot to be back in a healthy shape again.
If you are one of the few that is always healthy and never been to a hospital, then you are fortunate. However, all of us will be ill atleast once in our lifetime. Ranging from minor aches to severe complaints of complications. If time is in our hands and we may live long enough to make our physical conditions fall apart due to old age, sadly to say, a moment will come that sickness will overwhelm us. Going in and out of clinics and hospitals will become a routine. We can’t avoid our physical breakdown and deterioration as time passes.
An instant healing with a simple faith
John 4:50 – Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
The father simply believe that his son will not die and it happened. It is not just a simple faith but truthful and genuine. It seems there was no doubt when he believed Jesus’ words. An ordinary person would force Jesus to come with him to his house to heal his child. The father simply trust our Lord from the bottom of his heart. He believed without seeing.
Instant healing that waited for 38 years
John 5:5 – And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
The man was sick for 38 long years and had been waiting by the pool. We can evaluate from the story back then that the man have faith even before Jesus talked to him. I can say that he has been doing that for a long time. It became his habit to stay by the pool and hope for it to move. Almost four decades had past and an instant healing was given by our Lord Jesus Christ out of sympathy and kindness. He was healed and made whole without going to the pool. Right at that moment he was healed.
An instant healing but with procedures to follow
Another man was healed after washing at the pool of Siloam. It was an instant healing but not as instant as others did. There was a procedure to follow. Without finishing the process the healing would never push through. Jesus used clay on the blind man’s eyes and asked the man to wash it in a certain pool. How difficult it is to go to a certain place when you are blind? However, that was the final step. He had to go.
John 9:7 – And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
No healing at all
Surprising to say, not all faithful men will be healed. Apostle Paul had a thorn in the flesh and there was no relief. The grace of God was sufficient already to Apostle Paul. And there is the necessity to exhibit weakness in order to show the perfect strength of God.
II Corinthians 12:7 – And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
Healing has many faces but they are all considered healing when you got better and felt relief afterwards. To restore your usual functions, it may require an assortment of remedies. But an antidote will not cure everyone the same way and not all lanes will lead to the same destinations. It should always be God’s way, not our way or anybody’s way. We have to follow Him no matter what. Just keep on praying and believing, never lose hope. God is the greatest healer and doctor of all. Healing is just near through Him. It is rarely distant and of course, better promises awaits to His servants.
When servants of God get sick it is for a reason and purpose. Beyond doubt, it is always for the better. Therefore, be a servant of God before it is too late. It is never a loss.
May our Lord Jesus Christ bless you today.
