The healing from the Holy Spirit
Last Sunday we sang a hymn which included these lyrics:
Christ, who once came to bring on your redeeming wing healing and sight, health to the sick in mind, sight with illusions blind: now to all humankind let there be light.
The same Jesus who brought healing when He was walking on the earth is still bringing healing through the Holy Spirit who He left on the earth. It was Jesus’ promise that the Holy Spirit would bring the believers power to do what He had done and more. In the context of saying that Jesus would pray to the Father to give His disciples another Comforter (the Holy Spirit) Jesus said:
11 Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do.
12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. 13 You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. 14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it! (John 14:11-13 NLT).
For 30 years Jesus had the Holy Spirit residing in Him but the Holy Spirit was released into Him to empower His ministry at Jordan, when He was baptised. In the same way we are empowered by the Holy Spirit, when we ask the Holy Spirit to live in us, to heal, teach and lead people to a closer relationship with God.
Pray today for the Holy Spirit to heal you of whatever afflicts you.
