When he came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said ‘Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean. Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. ‘I am willing’ he said, ‘Be clean!’ Immediately he was cured of his leprosy.
All those that are referred to in the miracles demonstrated that regardless of who we are; if we are in tune with the spiritual strength and power of our maker all things are possible. The miracles are testament to the power of faith and how tuning into the power that resides within each one of us makes all things possible. They all experienced a state of being one hundred percent aware of the will of the spirit within us and they humbly chose to align the energy of their spirits with the powerful energy flow of the universe, which is God.
Diary entry 30.06.06
I used to read the bible and wonder why the world as we know it today is so void of miracles when the bible is littered with them. How can circumstances have changed so drastically to bring about a situation where the bible appears to be like one large book of fairytales? On further contemplation and through personal experience I have come to the conclusion that the bible stands out in almost fictional proportions because we are out of touch with the phenomenal source of power that brings such miracles into being. The miracles are a wake up call to the fact that we have to step up our game. Just think about it, if a tennis star seeded as number one in the world after winning a number of grand slams becomes complacent to the extent of reducing the number of matches they play during the year, they will not maintain their rank. Instead they put in the practice to overcome any identified weaknesses in their game, they add to their repertoire of skills, they keep abreast of new techniques to improve their game, all the while with the sole intention of being ready to defend their ranking and title when the situation presents itself. Why should we think differently in relation to finding out the truth of our spirituality and sharpening our awareness of the truth?
Jesus heals many
When Jesus came into Peter’s house, he saw Peter’s mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever. He touched her hand and the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on him.
When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick. This was to fulfil what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:
‘He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases.’
Wake up and let the truth set you free. Wake up and let the truth heal you. The situation depicted draws us to the question that each of us must ask ourselves at some point. Once the truth has set you free and your life has been impacted by discovering the true meaning of your existence what will you do with your new found freedom? What would you choose to do with your life so that it becomes a beacon for others to follow?
