Supernatural healing for the nations: The Nigeria scenario!
“And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.” (Matthew 10: 1)
The present situation of my dear country should raise concern in the hearts of her citizens, especially children of God, due to her decaying status day in and out. Several citizens have lost hope of a better Nigeria. This is often why thousands migrate to other developed countries. In fact, most servants of God have lost hope in Nigerian government and in God. However, God is sending to us a message of hope; He can still heal the deteriorating state of Nigeria. It’s never out of His power to do.
The Supernatural Power
The healing process of the sick needs something beyond medical attention. Not all with disease and good medical care made it. If Nigeria will experience healing, we need something beyond the ordinary; we need the supernatural healing power. Jesus gave such great power to His disciples to heal “all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.” This supernatural power can heal all kinds of disease in human body and all kinds of national sickness and embarrassment. He can heal us of corruption, bad leaders and bad followers. He can heal our judiciary, legislature, economy and education, among others. May the supernatural power be released for the unusual. Amen.
The Supernatural Person
Our focal text affirms that Jesus Christ is the giver of the power to heal. No one else has it or gives it. He is the Supernatural Person that owns the supernatural power. It is His desire to see sickness and disease healed. Therefore, He releases His supernatural power among men to actualise this.
The Supernatural Performers
Jesus Christ will not give the supernatural power just to anybody save His disciples. Those who will operate in the supernatural power must have encountered Christ. They must have testimony of transformation before transforming a nation. They must be willing to follow Jesus Christ and learn of Him. Then, He will be willing to set them on the stage, as performers in every sector to bring healing to every messy situation.
