“For he had healed many”




Mark 3:8-15.
In 2006, while living in London and attending  Christ Church, London. I noticed  on my way to service how I couldn’t clearly make use of my right eye. After visiting Moorfields Eye Hospital, London,  I was diagnosed with “Toxoplasmosis.” In shock, I found out it was a disease that results from infection with the Toxoplasma gondii parasite, one of the world’s most common parasites.


I questioned the implication and the cause of the disease and  I was reliably informed during my treatment that I was born that way. I knew God had a better plan for my eye, and he healed me through the use of medicine and faith in His word. The word works every time. If we dare to believe him, he may not show up, when we want him to show up, but he’ll always respond to our faith. The late Archbishop Idahosa would say: “there is something beyond medical science; it is the healing power of God, and faith in his word. Perhaps, it appears too simplistic to you. Or maybe you would argue it doesn’t happen often. The truth is; if you understand the power in his word, It would be easier to believe it.


“When meditating on today’s text. I noticed how Jesus went about healing people and operating in authority over evil spirits.
In this text, we see Jesus healing again. Mark 3:10 (KJV). For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.
Smith Wigglesworth had this to say “Never listen to human plans. God can work mightily when you persist in believing Him in spite of discouragement from the human standpoint. … I am moved by what I believe. I know this: no man looks at the circumstances if he believes.
If we understand that “God is never tightfisted with any of His blessings.” We would be more open to ask for physical and emotional healing based on his word.


People in Smith Wigglesworth days didn’t have to look  at the internet about sickness, they had this to say: “I believe the word of God is so powerful that it can transform any and every life. There is power in God’s word to make that which does not appear to appear. There is executive power in the word that proceeds from His lips. The psalmist tells us, “He sent His word and healed them” (Ps. 107:20); and do you think that word has diminished in its power? Wigglesworth, continued,  I tell you nay, but God’s word can bring things to pass today as of old.”


What Jesus did, he gave the same authority and power to his disciples in verse 15. “And to have authority to cast out the demons.”


Let’s utilize what has been provided to us through his Word. We can be healed.
