John 5:14

John 5:14 (ESV): "14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, "See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you."

Sickness and disease aren't always a direct result of sin in a person's life but they can be. The demonic is another possibility, as well as the fact that we are in a fallen body. We must seek Jesus to reveal the real issue and believe by faith in His will. He will work in accordance to His will.

Jesus must have walked by the pool of Bethesda several times perhaps even observing a time or two when the sick and invalid would rush to the waters that were being "stirred up" by what they perceived to be angels of God. This time Jesus asked a man who was an invalid for thirty-eight years a simple question, "do you want to be healed?" He replied, "yes, but I have no one to put me in the pool when it is stirred up or when I try someone steps in front of me." Jesus saw his faith and said, "Get up, take your bed, and walk...See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you."

When we pray for healing we should ask the person what they desire and then ask Jesus to provide. We don't need to pray on and on over the situation. We need to believe and command the Lord's will be done. Jesus spoke and it was done. All we need to do is invite Jesus into the moment and ask For His will to be accomplished and He will take care of it. He will also reveal to the person if it was sin, the demonic, or just the fallen nature manifesting itself. Invite Jesus into the picture and ask Him to work and leave it at that, amen?

Father, we thank You for the ability to seek You for healing. We thank You that You revealed the root cause of our sickness or disease. We trust in You to do the miracle and for the strength to walk in the continued freedom provided through Your Son we pray in Jesus' name, amen.
