Read Joel Osteen Daily Devotional todayJanuary 4 2023:
In Luke 17, Jesus was met by ten lepers who began to shout, “Jesus, have mercy on us!” Jesus could have spoken a word and healed them, but instead He said, “Go show yourselves to the priests,” which didn’t make sense. They could have thought, “Once we’re healed, we’ll go to the priests.” But faith says you have to believe it and act on it before you see it.
I can imagine that the lepers started walking what could have been several miles to the priests and in the first couple of hours didn’t see any change. Thoughts said, “Go home. You’re wasting your time.” But they kept walking even though there was no sign of healing. Finally, one of them looked at his skin and said, “It’s getting better!” Another began to move his hand and said, “My fingers are working!” The Scripture says, “As they went, they were healed.” If they had waited for things to change, they wouldn’t have seen the healing. Many times, the miracle is in the process of obedience to Jesus’ word.
