When you become aware of someone else receiving a miraculous blessing in their life, do you ask, “What about me and mine, Lord?” I believe that the leper who sought Jesus felt the same way. He knew of the works of Jesus, but in his society he was not even permitted to be in public places. And, for many other reasons modern Christians disqualify themselves, having no doubts in Jesus’ abilities, but not sure if Jesus will help them. The leper spoke, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean” (Matthew 8:2). He was confident in the power of God to manifest his prayers, but not the love of God for him.
Like the leper, maybe you don’t have a problem believing that God can give you your miracle(s), since He is Almighty God. But you are wondering if He willing, if he is interested in you. Yet, on many occasions Jesus stretched forth His hand, acting as, if not saying, “I am willing…” and immediately, righteous desires were met.
God wants you to know that even though you are in this world, you are not of this world. Having already delivered you spiritually, you belong to Him. And, because He is with you, “He has already delivered you from … [all the physical, financial, psychological and social adversities that may befall you] (Psalm 91:3). He is able, and willing because these are the blessings of God. And, according to 2 Corinthians 1:20 … all the [responses to petitions per His Will, the] promises of God … are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us, who He loves. God is glorified by manifesting the prayers of His children.
