What does Jesus will for you? The leaper approached Jesus with a desire in his heart to be healed. But he put Christ's will before his own. "Lord, if you want to, you can make me clean." Do you approach Jesus with the same humility? I know I often pray in a demanding way, even throwing spiritual tantrums just like my toddler. I waaant it and I waaaant it now! And yet, this man who suffered much from his disease, put's the Lord's will first.
And Jesus, knowing this man's heart, answers with compassion and love, "Yes, I will it." Can you imagine what that man saw in Christ's eyes as he laid His hands upon him? Such total surrender to such complete love. I know Jesus loves each of us just as much as the leaper. He is anxious to show us his love and answer our prayers, if we but ask him with humility and surrender.
One more thing: What's the one thing that you need Christ's help with right now? Parenting, job, health? Stop and bring yourself to a place of inner submission to Christ's love. Imagine looking into his beautiful eyes as you say this prayer.
Prayer: Dear Lord, I need your healing and love. If you will it, you can answer this prayer as I desire. However, if that is not your will for me, help me to see your love and compassion in this situation and to always seek your will for me before my own.
