TOPIC: ACCESSING HEALING GRACE
TEXT: LUKE 5:17
Today, EVANG. DAVID OFURUM teaches…
In the presence of God is where His power is. God never goes anywhere without His power. Whenever God is fully present, it is always with the full weight and compliments of His power which means He can do anything at anytime, including your healing. Yet, not everyone in God’s presence who needs a healing goes home with a healing miracle. Why do some people fail to access God’s healing grace for themselves when they so desperately need it? There are a few keys to accessing God’s healing grace which we can find throughout Scriptures.
You must recognise God’s presence and the fact that you are in it. You need to be conscious that where God is, His grace (power) is. Without an acknowledgement of these two crucial truths, you could be in God’s presence surrounded by His healing virtue for as long as you can without knowing it, just like Jacob (Gen. 28:16), or without accessing it like the Pharisees and doctors of Luke 5:17. Be sure it is God’s presence you are in and not a deceptive semblance of if. And you might not be able to tell the presence of God if you do not know Him personally or possess His Spirit.
Everyone Jesus ever healed or met their healing desire for a loved one had to have faith in the healing virtue of God. They didn’t have to be perfect, but they had to have faith for without faith, it is impossible to please God (Heb. 11:6, Lk. 7:9-10). Your faith is your access code into God’s store house of abundance where, among other things, healing is available. With faith, you can attract God’s attention even when His attention or that of the preacher was somewhere else. You know there are some people that are so naturally attractive to you that you can’t help turning to get a second look whenever they come around. That is what faith does to God for you; it grabs and turns His attention in your direction.
Worship is an outpouring of your spirit to God in commendation of His good nature. In worshipping, you yield and make yourself vulnerable to God and His grace. When you are vulnerable to God, He gets vulnerable to you too. At that moment when you are holding nothing back from God, He also holds nothing back from you, including the healing grace (Mat. 8:2-3; 9:18-19; 15:25-28, Mk. 5:6-8). Worship is a wholehearted intercourse between two spirits during which they draw energies from each other. When it is between your human spirit and God’s supreme Spirit, He takes from you all infirmities as you draw from Him His healing virtue. Hallelujah!
You can access Jehovah’s healing virtues at any time if you practice being in His undiluted presence at all times, acknowledging that presence and the grace it carries, discarding doubts about the healing grace and plunging into God’s healing anointing in the vulnerability of worship. Accepting Jesus Christ, the very fullness of God into your heart to live eternally makes all these steps easy. If you are yet to do that, this is a great opportunity to do so. Just say this prayer in faith: Dear Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God and I need you in my life forever. Come live in my heart eternally from this day forward as my Lord and Saviour. Amen.
