One day Jesus called together his twelve apostles and gave them power and authority to cast out demons and to heal all diseases. 2 Then he sent them out to tell everyone about the coming of the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick. 3 “Don’t even take along a walking stick,” he instructed them, “nor a traveler’s bag, nor food, nor money. Not even an extra coat. 4 When you enter each village, be a guest in only one home. 5 If the people of the village won’t receive your message when you enter it, shake off its dust from your feet as you leave. It is a sign that you have abandoned that village to its fate.” 6 So they began their circuit of the villages, preaching the Good News and healing the sick.

The truth about Jesus is that He is both God and Man, both spiritual and psychical. The salvation He offers is both for the soul and the body. When Jesus sent His disciples out, He sent them out to save, but also to heal the sick. He is concerned about every aspect of our lives, both the physical and the spiritual. When a person is hungry, they are not going to be concerned about their soul until they are fed. When a person is physically hurting, they are not going to hear God over the pain. It is impossible to minister effectively to one type of need without considering the other. Christ taught this throughout His entire ministry. A little later after this, Christ feed 5000 men and their families with only 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish. He had been teaching them and they were too hungry to walk back to town. What physical need is keeping you from hearing the voice of God today? What need has become bigger than your need for Jesus? God cares about that need and He is going to touch you both physically and spiritually, but it is a matter of trusting Him. Do you believe He cares about every aspect of your life? Do you believe He will heal you? Move forward as if you have your answer from God and He will make it a reality. Bring your need before Him and leave it with Him. Because only He can provide everything that you need. Trust in His Word and trust Him because of what He has already done in your life for both the physical and the spiritual.
Have a God Day!
