38 Days of Miracles: Healed and Moving On
This 30 Days Series will lead us to Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe by taking a look at the the 37 +1 Miracles of Jesus that are recorded in the Bible.
The Word - "And he arose and left the synagogue and entered Simon’s house. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was ill with a high fever, and they appealed to him on her behalf. And he stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her, and immediately she rose and began to serve them. Luke 4:38-39 ESV
A Thought - Hospitality was really important in the culture in which Jesus lived. Simon's mom probably felt terrible having the rabbi arrive knowing that she was too ill to treat him with the customary courtesy and respect. When Jesus healed her, she simply got up and went on doing what she knew to do. We should do the same. After an encounter with Jesus, rather than trying to repeat the encounter or basking in the afterglow, we should just take our healing and get on with the ministry that God has set before us. I don't think the Lord heals us to get us stuck. He heals us to get us moving!
A Prayer - Lord, Thank you for all the times you have healed me. Thank you for all of the ministry that you have assigned to me. Help me to keep moving forward in my calling and my service to my fellow man.- In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
