Scripture Reading: Numbers 21:7–9
“Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us.
And Moses prayed for the people. And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.”
Father God, we thank you for you are the Rock of Ages; you are a cleft for us to hide ourselves in. Lord, you are the rod of healing. In your mercy, deliver us from every ailment, from every physical and spiritual pain and discomfort.
Many people are stricken with diseases, ranging from cancer to heart disease. They look to doctors and home remedies for relief, but they have forgotten that Jesus is the rod of healing. He is the only one who can bring total healing. Beloved, are you looking unto Jesus for your healing?
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life,” John 3:14–15.
The people of Israel were complaining against God and Moses and as a punishment, they got bitten by poisonous serpents and died. But the remaining Israelites confessed their sin and begged Moses to pray to the Lord to remove the serpents. So, Moses lifted up that fiery serpent upon a pole.
Similarly, Jesus was also lifted up upon a pole to bring about your healing. The lifting up of the Lord Jesus Christ upon the cross guarantees healing for those who look Jesus. A rod symbolizes authority. Jesus is the authority of your healing, the rod of your deliverance, the rod of your healing.
Father God Almighty, I bring before you all who keep calling out to you about one ailment or the other. I pray for healing for those who cannot afford medical attention. I lift Jesus up and pray for healing from all diseases that man cannot heal. O Lord, there is nothing you cannot do. Your Word says you sent your Word and healed their diseases. Lord, you sent me your Word and made it possible for me to proclaim this Word. Holy Father, I ask that those who are spiritually, physically, or financially sick be healed in Jesus’ name.
O Father, there are many serpents that have bitten and poisoned the resources of your children. O brass serpent of our time, my Lord Jesus, as you are lifted up, I pray that you heal the finances of your children. Father according to your Word, prosper our souls, our bodies, our resources.
In the name of Jesus, I call down the thunder and the fire of God to burn to ashes that hindrance of the enemy that has put a blockage in your children’s spiritual, physical, or financial health. Lord God, let their blessings begin to flow again; make their health excellent again.
If you have not given your life to the Lord Jesus, He cannot be your rod of healing. Pray with me, “Dear Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you. I confess and forsake my sins.
Cleanse me from my sins with your blood. Write my name in the book of life and give me the born-again experience. Pour your Spirit into me and give me the grace to hold onto you, the rod of my healing.”
Lord Jesus, you are our only healer. You have been lifted up. Let that healing from the fiery darts of the enemy and the serpents of the world permeate our bodies, souls, and spirits in the name of Jesus. Amen.
