“And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.” (Luke 5:17).
This is the story of the four guys who made a hole in the roof in order to get their buddy in to see Jesus. They believed Jesus could help their friend and the power was there to do it. Jesus was there. But the Pharisees and doctors of the law didn’t get anything that day because of their unbelief. The man on the mat got something from the power that was there. He and his friends had faith. He got healed.
Jesus was on his way to the house of Jairus to heal his daughter, (Mark 5), when a lady who had been suffering with a medical condition for years came up behind Jesus and touched His clothes. She believed if she could just touch him, she would be healed. The power to heal her was there and when she made contact with Him, in faith, that power flowed out of Jesus and into her. She was completely healed! The power was there. She received it.
Wherever Jesus is, there is power. Where is the Spirit of Jesus right now? Is He here? “But you are holy, you who inhabit the praises of your people.” (Psalm22:3). Have you praised God lately or are you getting ready to? “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever”. (Hebrews 13:8). Wherever the Spirit of Jesus is, there is power. He is with you if you’ve invited Him to be. He will never leave you. The power is here. Believe it. Receive it.
