Jesus’ life was filled with wonders, miracles and healing. He proved his power over nature by calming storms; over death by disrupting funerals; over sickness by bringing health. He performed some of these miracles with just a single word and others were performed from a remote location.Many of us have received true, divine healing from God. The type of healing where there is no explanation other than God’s healing power. But on the other hand, many of us have spent thousands and thousands of dollars in search of finding a cure, just like the woman with an issue of blood. For twelve long years she spent all she had on doctors and none of them could diagnose the problem. Can you imagine having to deal with a sickness for that length of time? Or better yet, can you envision spending your hard-earned money on several different doctors with no results? After a year, it would certainly seem like a dead-end, and after 12 years, for most of us, the situation would seem hopeless. But the woman with the issue of blood pushed passed the dead end and made her way to Jesus – the one she knew could heal her!Here’s the encouragement – sometimes God takes us to dead ends to refocus our eyes on the prize. Dead ends represent no future, no destiny, and in this case no healing. But in some situations, the dead end is just what we need to be in order trust in the Lord and not depend on our own understanding. I hear God saying to you today; “don’t get weary in your well doing.” Although issues in your life seem to last for years, your faith creates paths even through dead ends.
Here are 4 ways to work through dead ends and receive the healing God has for you.
- Develop a spirit of expectation for God’s healing
- Use the sufficient faith you have to receive healing
- Don’t ignore the issues of life. Remember Jesus has already overcome the world so be cheerful.
- Never operate in fear…it destroys your faith.
