Luke 4:40 Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with diverse diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.
A total of five (5) times throughout the New Testament, including Luke 4:40, the scriptures highlighted that Jesus healed or delivered all those who came to him who were sick or demon possessed. Why was it important for this to be mentioned? To communicate that Jesus is able to meet all our needs. Take note that the scriptures never said that He was only able to attend to those whose circumstances were not too difficult; neither did it say that his ability was limited to only healing the blind or the lame. Instead Luke 4:40 said “he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them”, that means that every need was met. That is incredible.
The implication of the aforementioned is that since Jesus repeatedly met the needs of all those who came to him then, we should expect him to do the same for us as well. Consider also that the needs that Jesus met were not only confined to acts of healing and deliverance, he turned water into wine as well (John 2) and brought back to life a dead situation for the widow who was on route to bury her son (Luke 7). Additionally, He acted as provider by feeding a multitude of 5,000 men plus women and children with 5 loaves and 2 fishes. If Jesus did all of the above plus more, what is the need that he cannot supply? What is the need that you require Jesus to meet in your life? If you look to him with expectation He will meet your needs. He may not do it according to your timetable, or the way you envision it to happen, but He will do it.
Life Application: Keep looking to Jesus to meet your needs by daily putting your needs before Him in prayer with an expectation that He will do it.
Prayer: Lord, your word has declared that you will supply all my needs according to your riches in glory. I present all my needs to you right now and ask that you meet each need according to your will and purpose. In Jesus name, amen.
