Waiting for a Miracle

Waiting for a Miracle

16 When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick,

Matthew 8:16

I can’t even imagine what it must have been like for the sick and their families, waiting for sunset, the changing of Sabbath to Sunday to rush over and have Jesus touch their infirmities away.

One day we will all be able to experience it if we chose to take part. When Jesus returns in the clouds, we will have our day of healing and perfection. We will see Jesus face to face. We simply have to wait.

But wait how long?

I ask this question because it is possible that we ourselves create time limits on ourselves. Many a debate has raged over 2 Peter 3:12:

12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?

Can we really hasten his coming?

I’m not going to answer that question here but I will bring up something that all those looking for healing got wrong in Matthew 8:16. Look at the few verses before it.

14 Now when Jesus had come into Peter’s house, He saw his wife’s mother lying sick with a fever. 15 So He touched her hand, and the fever left her. And she arose and served them.

Jesus didn’t wait for the Sabbath to end to cure Peter’s mother in law. She was sick, he was there and so he healed her. So many people waited for the sun to go down not realizing that Jesus was already willing and waiting to heal them. Can you be doing to same today?

Is there a miracle Jesus is waiting to give you, but you yourself is waiting for a special time or event?

20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

Revelation 3:20

Look at tour current situation right now and ask yourself: is Jesus waiting for me to ask for a miracle I’m needing?
