But I want to focus on just a few today.
And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick. —Matthew 14:14
Can you imagine this scene with me? Jesus just left a secluded place where He was praying to our Father. He comes from that intimate place and looks out over the vast crowd. The multitudes are broken, in pain, demonized, terrorized, hurting and sick. I love this scripture for so many reasons but I’m moved that He had compassion. He had compassion for the crowds. For the broken and those who were far from perfect. For the sick, not the strong. For the paralyzed and forsaken. For the demonized and those who live in fear and pain.
He had compassion.
He has compassion for us today. His compassion was vast. So much so that He became a man, died for us then rose again to bring us everlasting life. Pow!!! Just truly take this truth in again and view it with freshness in your heart. His mission was salvation and the healing of our body, mind, and our soul. It was His heart to bring healing to the crowds.
Jesus still heals today. The same compassion moves Him to touch and heal! I will acknowledge that there are Bible believing churches who don’t believe in modern-day healing. I was once in that camp. That was until October 12, 2012 when I had an encounter with the love and power of our living God. Everything changed that day and every day since. I can’t debate theology. But I can bear testimony that is absolute truth, I have been healed in every way through the Trinity. My soul, my mind, my emotions, and my physical body (through a miraculous healing prayer). Dineen and many others can bear testimony to this statement.)
If you have been a reader here for long, you will know that I share openly my life with Jesus. I pray you know that I speak with truth and that you can bear witness to the reality of how my life has transformed in every area because of the healing power of Jesus. If your new and still not certain about all this healing stuff, what have you got to lose? Stay tuned and press into His love and seek healing.
… and He healed their sick!
I want to share the first of the four weapons of healing that I mentioned on Monday. Ready???
The name of Jesus.
There is power in the spoken name of Jesus.
Have you ever listened to the song, There Is Power In the Name of Jesus? The lyrics continue…. To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain.
When you speak the name of Jesus you don't have to say anything else. Because when he comes, he brings with him everything you need.
In the name of Jesus, the deaf will hear (mark 7:33)
In the name of Jesus, the blind see (Mark 8:23)
In the name of Jesus arthritis must leave (Luke 13:12)
In the name of Jesus, devils are powerless (Luke 10:17)
In the name of Jesus, demons are casted out (Mark 16:17-18)
In the name of Jesus healing is available (Acts 3)
In the name of Jesus, salvation comes (Acts 4)
In the name of Jesus I have peace, joy, and goodness (romans 14:17)
In the name of Jesus, I have hope (Romans 5:27)
In the name of Jesus, we are baptized (Matthew 28:19)
In the name of Jesus, we are forgiven (1 John 1)
In the name of Jesus, we are justified (1 Cor 6:11)*
So here is my assignment this week: Speak the name of Jesus. Often. Bless yourself and others in the name of Jesus. Speak the name of Jesus when you are driving, doing the laundry, while giving the kids a bath. Bless your kids with joy while you are getting them dressed in the morning. Bless yourself with joy and hope. Bless your home with the presence of angels and the glory of God. Bless your husband to thrive at work. Bless him to be a man of integrity, one of honor, a great father. Bless him to learn to love you well. Speak these blessings aloud and in the name of Jesus.
Bless your mind and emotions with the healing of Jesus!
I’ve shared with you before about how I blessed my infected eye. After a week an old contact lens popped out on my finger. I’ve blessed away weird little bumps on my face. I’ve blessed myself into health. I’ve blessed myself with supernatural weight loss. I’ve blessed my car engine and more. Big blessings and small. All things covered by the name of Jesus can change and come under His authority.
Nearly every day, I bless my son, grandkids, and my daughter along with myself, my husband and our home. Why? BECAUSE THERE IS POWER IN THE NAME OF JESUS!!
Use His name in faith and watch things change as you are consistent. It’s one of our most powerful weapons to release the power and glory of God upon our world! Hallelujah!!!

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
