This morning as I was reading through the gospel of Mark I was struck by one of the many healing stories of Jesus.
“And wherever Jesus went they place the sick in the marketplaces. They begged him to let them touch even the edge of his cloak, and all who touched him were healed” (Mark 6:56).
Only Jesus can heal, but as we see in this story, people who have a desire to see the sick healed can play a strategic role. In fact, it is clear from the testimony of Scripture that God planned it this way! Fulfilling our strategic role is not what heals or even guarantees a healing, but it does serve to prepare and position one for a divine encounter.
Notice how the people around Jesus did three things; 1) They placed the sick where Jesus was moving about. 2) They begged for a tangible connection with Jesus. 3) They persevered till they were touched! What they did we can do. And this is why I believe God has directed Risen King to host annual Kingdom Conferences designed to help position people for a greater encounter with God. In fact, this year we are hosting a “Kingdom Healing” Conference which will launch this Monday (2/28). Many are traveling here from across the country in the hope of being refreshed, inspired and equipped with regard to the ministry of divine healing. You can check it out at: www.rkconference.org
Do you know someone who needs prayer for healing? Prayerfully consider where you can bring them to a place where Jesus is moving powerfully. Shamelessly beg God on behalf of the sick for a tangible, supernatural connection with Jesus. And may the Lord grace us all to persevere till the sick are tangibly touched with the matchless love and power of Christ. “May your Kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven!”
