Daily Devotional for February 23
O Lord my God, you have done many miracles for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. —Psalm 40:5
No book could contain the volume of miraculous events that took place during the ministry of Jesus. “Wherever he went . . . they laid the sick in the market plazas and streets. The sick begged him to let them at least touch the fringe of his robe, and all who touched it were healed”
(Mark 6:56). Masses of suffering human beings were carried, laid by the road, and pressed closely to the Master in hopes of receiving just one healing touch. Not one was refused or turned away. Every person who was willing to press in and touch Him received a miracle.
Today, remarkably, more and more miracles are occurring on a worldwide scale. Every day on every continent of the world, thousands receive miraculous healings and deliverances in the name of Jesus. We must take a fresh look at suffering, sighing, dying humanity and purpose to bring this healing, delivering Jesus to their rescue. If we take His name and plunge into the sea of human need, we will find His footsteps and hands following right behind us!
