As the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various kinds of diseases brought them to him; and he laid his hands on each of them and cured them. Luke 4:40
There are times when Jesus’ touch cures the sick and diseased, as it did in Capernaum. Jesus personally touched the people who were weak and feeble; those who were without strength or power to help themselves felt Jesus’ hand upon them. Where in your life have you given up hope of ever experiencing health? Do you have habitual thoughts or actions that seem impossible to overcome? This is a form of despair. Jesus knows the exact nature of your distress. His nail-scarred hands touch your discouraged heart. Will you receive his power?
