17 He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of His disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sidon, 18 who had come to hear Him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by impure spirits were cured, 19 and the people all tried to touch Him, because power was coming from Him and healing them all.
When I read these verses the other day, it made me think about how amazing it would have been to witness “power coming from Him” as Jesus helped and healed so many people. In the next chapter we read about the Roman Centurion’s faith and trust in Jesus. He had a servant who was dying but He believed that Jesus was powerful enough to heal the servant without even coming to see him.
Our amazing God who created the world, raised Jesus from the dead and performed miracles still offers His help and power to us in all our difficulties and worries.
Ephesians 1:18 -21
18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people, 19 and His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 He exerted when He raised Christ from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.
