When Someone Isn’t Healed… Let’s Ask Jesus

“So I brought him to your disciples, but they couldn’t heal him.”

Afterward the disciples asked Jesus privately, “Why couldn’t we…?”

Matthew 17:16, 19 (NLT)

Afterward the disciples asked Jesus privately, "Why couldn't we...?" Matthew 17:19 (NLT)

When Jesus’ first group of disciples came up against a block to healing, they asked Jesus what the obstacle was, and he gave them a specific answer.

Jesus didn’t tell them it was a mystery. He told them actual realities that they could–and needed to–act on.

Disciples of Jesus: We, too, can ask.

Let’s drop the word “mystery” as it relates to non-healings. Let’s say instead, “I don’t yet know why I wasn’t able to heal by God’s power, but I am going to ask Jesus to reveal the answer, like he did when his earliest disciples had a failure at healing and they asked him why, and he told them.”

And then let’s ask. And listen for the answer. And act on it.
