In Scripture we read of many miraculous healings that were performed by Jesus while He physically walked the earth. In this passage we read of Peter announcing to Aeneas that he had been healed by Jesus Christ. Peter knew that while he was the messenger, it was Jesus who had actually healed Aeneas. Peter had to believe that Jesus would heal him. Such a faith! May our faith grow and mature in such a way that Jesus can use us to heal others, in His name, as well. What a powerful witness that would be to all who saw or heard or read of such a miraculous healing. Blessings on those who may be used by God in such a way.
As Peter traveled about the country, he went to visit the Lord’s people who lived in Lydda. There he found a man named Aeneas, who was paralyzed and had been bedridden for eight years. “Aeneas,” Peter said to him, “Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and roll up your mat.” Immediately Aeneas got up. All those who lived in Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord. Acts 9:32-35 (NIV)
