Bishop T.D. Jakes sermons on healing

Posted on Updated on

Genesis 32:31-32

Jacob wrestled with an angel of the Lord one night and came out of that experience with two things: the blessing of God and a limp in his walk. He limped for the rest of his life. The limp didn’t mean that Jacob hadn’t been blessed by God. It meant only one thing __ that he had a limp.

Your struggle with sin doesn’t mean that you aren’t saved in your spirit or healed in your soul. it only means that you still have a limp. And the fact is, you may never lose your limp entirely. You any learn to walk and even to skip and run. You may learn to get around so well that nothing about your limp slows you down. You may even able to get a built-up shoe that disguises the handicapped and allows you to function as through you had never been injured. You may even forget all about your limp. When that happens, and you feel no pain and no self-consciousness about it, then you are healed, even though the limp remains.

My children recently saw a man who had lost the use of his legs. They said,: why don’t you come have our daddy pray for you?”

“oh. I’m all right now,” the man said”I am healed.”

They didn’t understand what he meant, so he went on to explain. “you see, when this first happened, I was in pain all the time. I know I’m healed because it doesn’t hurt anymore.” Even though his injurious was over, his agony had continued.

Don’t let the limp fool you. You can be healed and still have a limp. The limp is only a sign that you have been through something, not that you are still struggling with something. if you can think about some insult or adversity and it doesn’t hurt anymore, you can be certain that you have been healed. If you can talk about a painful experience I your past and it doesn’t cause you to feel anger or hatred, you have been healed. If you can see the person who has wronged you or hurt you and not fel bitterness, then by God’s grace, you have been healed.

You may still have scars on your body, tell-tale sign of your predicament. You may still be divorced. You may still have a need. You may still have the “limp,” but on the inside you have been healed.

` Don’t confuse the scars with the inner work. The scars do not define the healing. What God has done in your innermost being proves that you’ve been healed.

    oh glory.i see things differently now.i know how i can selfdiagnose for my healing… when i remember an incident or see a person who hurt me and i feel no resntment or bitterness; when i meet someone who cheated me and conned me;when i meet someone who used me and lied to me; when i meet someone who told lies about me and tarnished my name;when i meet one who called me names and gossipped me……. and i just feel love for them,then i know am healed…….though i still bear the limppppppppp

    I have long evaded the Lord feeling to proud to admit I needed Him. I was one of those people who believed that whether God exist or not had little do with my life. But with each passing day, each success, each failure, there was always an emptiness that I could not ignore. I reached a stage where I feeling suicidal because nothing seems to make sense at all. Today I accepted Jesus as my savior.

    Coming back home from the bishop’s office I decided to play encouraging music and guess what the first song was? TB Jakes was singing it doesn’t matter who you are or where you have been; that it wasn’t about what you have done but what He has been through. I feel so accepted by myself and the entire universe. Suddenly my life feels meaningful.

    Thank you God for your being there.

    Jesus Christ is the focus of Christian healing ministries that are freeing people from the pain associated with unhealthy lifestyles. There is no limit on the healing power of Jesus Christ.

    Wow…what a revealation and many like these that bishop Jakes continues to bless our lives with! I thank God that we can be nourished,fed,built up and encouraged in God’s word that we so need in these turbulent, perilous times.God bless you bishop and it is my prayer that God will continue to extent the borders and sphere of your influence to millions and even billions more people across the world. People are dying and hurting without Christ and are in need of answers, guidance and direction in their lives! And its so great that someone like bishop Jakes does that so well to make known the intricate secrets of the kingdom of God and that touches eternity. Moce (farewell) from the beautiful paradise isles of the Fiji islands.
