He's Still There

Mark 1:40-42, NIV: A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on
his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” Filled with compassion,
Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be
clean!” Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.
While Jesus was on earth, there were many sick and dying that were healed—and
many that were not. This fact did not escape the knowledge of Jesus. “Are not
two sparrows sold for a penny?” Jesus asked, “Yet not one of them will fall to
the ground apart from the will of your Father…So don't be afraid; you are worth
more than many sparrows.” Christ is quite in tune to the details of your life.
He is aware of every little thing that causes you joy—or causes you pain. While
we do not always understand the will of the Father as to why He would heal some
while others continue to struggle; we do know He has our best interest at heart,
“He works all things together for the good,” and “He will never leave us nor
forsake us.” Jesus still sees you, He is still filled with compassion concerning
you, and He is still willing to heal you in ways you could not imagine.
