Just Do It
He looked at them and said, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed of their leprosy.
Luke 17:14, NLT
When ten lepers saw Jesus walking through their village, they called out for Him to have mercy and heal them. Leprosy was a dreaded infectious skin disease that caused disfigurement of the skin and bones, twisting of the limbs, and curling of the fingers. Jesus told them to go show themselves to the priests, which they would normally do after they were healed. They could have thought, Once I see my healing, then I’ll go. But as they obeyed Jesus’ word, parts of their bodies that had been dismembered and deformed were restored to normal. By the time they got to the priests, they were perfectly well.
When God tells you to do something, don’t debate it, don’t try to figure it out, just do it. When you obey, a blessing will always follow. God has some of these unusual miracles for you—unusual favor, unusual healing, unusual promotion, unusual restoration. Nothing is too difficult for our God.
