The Healing Touch of Jesus

It takes but one touch from the Master’s hand to bring forth a miraculous healing. To heal the sick, Jesus neither toils nor fails. Healing virtue flows mightily from Him and in great abundance. Whether you are in need of a healing yourself or desire to minister God’s healing power to the sick, you need to learn one thing and one thing only: it is the touch of Jesus that heals the sick.

Healing is not found in the touch of a man or a woman. Healing is not found in a gimmick, a technique, or a methodology. Healing is not found in a special prayer or a special message. Healing is found in the touch of Jesus.

As the sun went down that evening, people throughout the village brought sick family members to Jesus. No matter what their diseases were, the touch of his hand healed every one. - Luke 4:40, NLT

I love that scripture. Its power is in its simplicity.

Often, ministers will ask me, “What is the secret to God’s healing power?” They’ll say things to me like, “The way you minister to the sick makes it looks so easy.”

So what is the “secret”? I’ll be totally honest with you. There is no secret. If there was a secret to it, then that would mean healing is in man’s power to give. And why does healing seem to flow so easily? It’s because I’m doing nothing but surrendering to the Holy Spirit. It has nothing to do with me. I’ve just learned how to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. Really, that’s all there is to it.

There is no healing power in me except for that which belongs completely to Jesus. And the same goes for you.

It’s only His touch, and it takes just one touch. It truly is simply the healing power of God.

So how does one receive or minister healing power? It’s simple. To minister healing, just point to the Healer. Tell the people about His wonderful healing power, and tell them that they can receive healing from Him. To receive healing, just go to Jesus in faith. Ask for His healing touch and leave the rest to the sovereignty of God.

We ask and then leave it to God. Don’t fret or worry about the results or the timing of the results. Just be at peace knowing that He is a healing Jesus. You don’t have to give money to receive a healing. You simply have to ask in faith. Then trust Him from there.

I encourage you now. Reach back to the Lord. Touch Him by faith. Declare the promises of the Word. Focus totally on the Lord Himself. Forget your sickness. Forget your pain. Love His presence. Focus on Him. In the spirit, look upon the face of Jesus. When His presence becomes more real to you than your sickness, you will be healed. You will receive the healing touch of Jesus.
