Summary: God does not want you sick. Sickness comes from the devil.

Overcoming the Greatest Hindrance to Healing

I'm going to read to you in a few moments out of the book of


Mark 1:40-42

40 Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, "If You are willing, You can make me clean."

41 Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, "I am willing; be cleansed."

42 As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed.

I know that there is people hurting, in trouble and they need help.

And I believe that God's word is relevant for today's problems.

THE BIBLE SAYS ~ Psalms 91:14-16

14 "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation."

"Because he has set his love upon Me


"Because he has set his love upon Me

Today I want to talk about ~

Overcoming the Greatest Hindrance to Healing

Listen carefully ~ Living Bible -- talking about Jesus:

v:39 ~ So, he traveled throughout the province of Galilee preaching in the synagogues and releasing many from the power of demons.

Once a leper came and knelt in front of Him and begged Him to be healed.

“If You want to, You can make me well.”

That is the cry of humanity everywhere.

1. God, if You want to.

2. If it is Your will.

3. I know you have the power.

4. You created the world and everything therein.

5. I know You've got the power.

The greatest hindrance is:…… Is it the will of God? .

That's the greatest hindrance you'll ever overcome

if you want to get out of trouble or get healed in your body.

Is it God's will?

• This leper had the same problem people have all over the world.

He said in the King James version:

If You will. ……If it's Your will.

He said here in the Living Bible:

If You want to.

I'm glad Jesus came to earth,

I'm so glad Jesus came to represent the Father.

I'm telling you, it's better to believe Jesus than anything else.

This leper posed one of the greatest hindrance

to your getting out of your trouble

or getting healed in your body.

He said:……

Jesus, if You want to, You can make me well.

Jesus said? -- I want to. I want to.

• You may be in a storm today,

• you may be in trouble today,

• doctors may have given you up,

• you may have suffered for years and no hope.

T.T. ~ The book of Job

1. ~ People are taught that it’s not God's will to heal them.

2. ~ People are taught that God may want to heal some of them, but He

3. doesn't want to heal everybody.

4. ~ People are taught that all the miracles and signs and wonders have

5. passed away.

6. ~ Some people are thought to believe maybe God wants us to suffer.

You need to change what you believe

and realize that the God of the Bible

has a message for you:

• You can overcome the greatest hindrance…… Is it God's will?

• God's will IS for you to be healed

and delivered

and set free

and have life and have it more abundantly.

That's God's will.


Notice in this story the leper said:

• If ….You want to, You can heal me.

Jesus canceled his "if."

Every if has been canceled when He said:

I want to.

I want you to be healed.

I want you to walk in divine health.

I want you to get out of trouble.

I want to heal your marriage.

I want to deliver your children.

I want to drive demons out of you.

• One of the greatest revelations that we have along this line is the book of Job.

Job 1:6-12

6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them.

7 And the LORD said to Satan, "From where do you come?" So Satan answered the LORD and said, "From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it."

8 Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?"
