Simple Steps to Miracle Healing

Open the Spout Where the Healing Comes Out

by Pastor John Hamel


“And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.” (Luke 5:12-13)


Many people don’t know that it’s always God’s will to heal them.  That is, if they’re meeting the conditions for healing.  They pray like this leper prayed, “Lord, if it be Your will, heal me.”  


You’ll notice in this narrative Jesus corrected the man’s prayer by saying, “I will” or “It is My will” and then healed him.  


Jesus proved His will to heal that day.  He has not changed. (Hebrews 13:8) 


Someone asked, “If it’s always God’s will to heal, how come everybody doesn’t receive healing?”  


Simple.  As I’ve already stated, everyone isn’t meeting all of the conditions. 


I always encourage people to examine themselves in the area of bitterness and unforgiveness.  Those two will surely “block the spout where the healing power comes out.” (Mark 11:25; James 3:13-18)  


If all is well in those areas and you’re living clean, the steps taken by this leper will produce tremendous results, if you’ll expect them to. (Luke 1:37)


This man also fell on his face before Jesus.  This was a complete act of humility.  


Some people are afraid to ever be seen kneeling before Jesus.  Some people are even too proud to let others know they believe in Jesus.  That’s definitely not conducive to receiving miracle healing.  


Jesus said He would be ashamed of anyone who was ashamed of Him. (Matthew 10:32,33)  It just doesn’t make sense to think you’ll receive healing when you’re ashamed of the Healer.  


Ask Him to help you with this.  He promises to do so. (John 16:23)


Once on his face, the man began to worship Jesus.  


Although this narrative doesn’t use the actual word “worship,” it’s clear that falling on one’s face before God is an act of worship as well as an act of humility.  


This man was seeking a relationship with the Healer, not just a healing.  Many are only looking for what they can get out of Jesus but have no interest in living for Him.  They want to be healed so they can continue to sin with gusto!  


This never works.  The Bible says that those who seek the Lord, not just His power, will receive. (Psalm 34:10)


This leper then called Jesus his “Lord.”  This indicates that he was indeed willing to submit to Him as His servant.  


Jesus wants a commitment from you for a reason.  He knows if He heals you and you walk away from Him, you’ll become seven times worse off than you are now.  Look it up in your Bible! (Matthew 12:43-45)  


He loves you too much to allow that to happen.  


Say, “Jesus, You’re my choice as Savior and Healer.” (Romans 10:13)  


Then commit to Him that you’ll hook up with a Pastor who believes in Jesus’ healing power.  You need to be filled with God’s Word to keep that sickness from returning.


Finally, the leper sought Jesus with his whole heart.  


The Bible says he “besought” Jesus.  He pled with Jesus earnestly.  He wasn’t a “player.”  He wasn’t attempting to use Jesus.  


You can’t use anyone, especially Jesus and get away with it.  That always catches up with people.  Particularly when they’re elderly and lacking the strength to protect themselves from their own corrupt harvest. (Galatians 6:7,8)  


You can’t use people and you can’t use Jesus either, not if you’re seeking miracle healing. 


Do the little things.  Humble yourself.  Fall on your face.  Worship Jesus.  Call Him “Lord” and seek Him with your whole heart.  


He’ll do the big thing and send His miracle healing power into your body!
