Seedy (Matthew 4:23-25)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “seedy.”  I remember when I was a young Christian, always enjoying the stories about Jesus interacting with people who needed help.  We see that in the New Testament, during Jesus’ ministry, that the word got out he could heal sick people.  In fact, when he went through Galilee, he would be teaching in the local synagogues and people would just bring random sick individuals to be healed.  These were people with physical ailments, demons, other kinds of pains, all right to the foot of Jesus.

“Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.” ~Matthew 4:23

How amazing would that have been, to be a part of these interactions with Jesus?!  My question is: what are the limits that you put on Jesus?  I find it pretty cool that peeps back in the day didn’t just listen to his words, but came to him in full faith that he was able to heal great ailments.  I know that each of us probably know a close friend or relative that has some kind of sickness or ailment that we would like to see healed.  And, although we may or may not see them beat these sicknesses, or be healed miraculously, we do know that there is a plan that comes directly from the Lord… and so I always pray for miraculous healing, and above all else a changed life.  

I’m sure for you, as it is for me, it’s not always easy to follow Jesus and faith.  However, my prayer is that you continue to lean on God with your questions, and pray fervently that those who are seedy, or living in sickness, are healed – both physically and spiritually.  Don’t put limitations on God.  Allow him to work in your life and increase your faith.

Praying for you,
