Healing God, whatever You have in store for us today, we rejoice. If we are to sit
in prayer before You, we rejoice. If we are to stand in grocery line-ups, we rejoice in Your presence. If we are to have meetings, we rejoice in Your presence. We respond to You, “Yes Lord” in all the things You ask us to do today. This we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
St. Matthew 9: 27 – 34
“Do you believe I am able to do this?” Jesus asks the two blind men. They respond, “Yes Lord!” Jesus touched their eyes and said because of their belief, they were healed. Jesus instructed them to not say a thing but they started sharing the good news the minute they were out the door. (Remember they have to go directly to the Priest so the Priest can declare them clean…. Although the Gospel kinda hints that they made a very long side trip J).
As the healed men were leaving, a man who had been struck speechless by an evil spirit was brought to Jesus. As soon as Jesus threw the evil spirit out, the man began to talk. The crowd was amazed but the Pharisees stated the healing happened because Jesus was in league with the Devil.
Three people were healed that day because of their belief in Jesus but the Pharisees were blinded to the healing powers of Jesus. How sad.
How often are we blinded to the miracles around us each day? How often
do we see the negative aspect of our lives and forget the positive life that God brings us.
Today and tomorrow, view every part of your life as a positive wonderful gift from God.
Divine Healer, thank You that our lives are a positive wonderful gift! O Holy Spirit, to give us balance and fullness of life, please instil peace, clarity, fulfilment, and serenity into our lives. Allow us to experience harmony, unity, and support in our lives and in our families. Thank You. In Jesus' name. Amen.
