A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, March 12

Matthew 9:35


Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.


Jesus healed the people of illnesses and infirmities. If his purpose in doing this was to rid the world of illness, he would have rid the world of illness. Was he urging us to have faith in him and to believe in his Father? Was he teaching us about compassion and love? Was he demonstrating just how powerful true faith could (can) be? As a physician, I find it difficult to pray for healing when I feel medical attention is essential. But God is so much more powerful than any medication or treatment we can offer. When I leave out God, what does that say about my faith?


Holy Lord, help me to remember you always, in every situation, as the One who heals. Without you, healing is not possible. Amen

Here we find him suffering alongside the multitudes and sensing and carrying the weight of their lost, wandering, and aimless state as he looks out over the crowds of people who have come to see Him.…

Matthew 9:35

The miraculous healing that Jesus did was an integral part of and not separate from His teaching. The individual stories are dramatic and poignant. The healings are not vulgar parlor tricks or slick showmanship. Jesus’ way of healing is quiet, gentle and dignified - after all, Jesus said it was better to be meek and humble of heart. Yet in these healing acts were glimpses into the Kingdom of God, the power of faith and could even act as the kindling that ignited faith in others who witnessed them. We are not all healed by God, even the most faithful among us. That Is why a seemingly miraculous healing should get our attention and remind us of God’s…
