Topic: Power to Heal – His Word

Scripture Reading:
Luke  5:17-26; John 8:1-11; Luke 4:1-19

Main Text:
Luke 4:18
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

In  many  instances  in  the  Scriptures,  Jesus  Christ  healed  the broken-hearted with His  Word. His presence was often accompanied by  His  spoken  words  and  actions  that  resulted  in  miracles.  God’s presence  is  not  observer-status  but  action-executing.  He  executes by  releasing  His  Word  to  heal  the  broken-hearted.

One example where the Lord Jesus healed the broken-hearted was  as  He  was teaching  the  Word  of  God  in  someone’s  house.  His presence  in  the  place  drew some  men  to  bring  a  man  sick  of  palsy to  Him.  The  sick  man’s  sin  was  forgiven  and  he  was  healed.  This manifestation  of  God’s  power  through  His  presence  healed  the sick man’s broken heart as well as those who had cared for him for many  years (Luke 5:17-26). Jesus  Christ’s  presence  saturated  the  location  with  the  power  of God  as  He  spoke  the  Word  to  heal  the  sick.

The woman caught in  the act of adultery must  have been devastated  and  broken-hearted.  Her  accusers  brought  her  before Jesus  Christ  seeking to stone  her  to  death  without  a  fair trial. The words  He  spoke  to  her  delivered  her  from  the  condemnation  of the  judgemental  society (John 8:1-11). Jesus Christ’s verdict,  “neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin  no  more”,  must  have given  the  woman  the  assurance  to  live a transformed and fulfilling life. The  Word  of  God  has  the  power  to  heal  lives that  are  torn  apart  by  sin  and  its  consequences.

1. Pray that the reality of the Word of God will manifested in your life.
2. Pray also that you will see the fulfilment of every prophecy of God concerning your life.
