Chase and Beg for a Miracle

And when the men of that place recognized him, they sent around to all that region and brought to him all who were sick and implored him that they might only touch the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched it were made well. (Matthew 14:35-36 ESV)

Do you chase after Jesus in such a way that you practically beg him to give you a miracle? You may have read or heard all the stories. He restored sight to the blind, healed the sick, casted out demons, walked on water, and fed 5,000 men with five loaves of bread and two fish.

His miracles advanced his reputation because no one has ever seen a man do so many. This gave people hope that all can be made well again. Could this be the Messiah they have been waiting for? Come hurry and let’s go see! And let’s bring the sick with us so that they will be healed!

Can you imagine the looks of astonishment with each person becoming well again? How excited do you think they were when their bodies were completely healed and their strength renewed with a youthful vigor?

Are you desperate for a miracle because you have suffered for so long? If that is the case, hastily pursue him as a beggar by offering your heart and ask for healing (Matthew 15:21-28). By faith, he will be pleased to say, “Go; let it be done for you as you have believed” (Matthew 8:13) or “Great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire” (Matthew 15:28).

Just remember that some miracles are instant, but most occur over time requiring us to work through several issues and treatments. Either way, the healing will happen; and if not on this side of eternity, then on other side in heaven.
