Apostle Grace Lubega
Luke 17: 15-16(KJV); And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
In this life of salvation, there are people who settle for less than what God desires for them. For example, in our theme scripture, nine lepers settled for healing and only one received wholeness.
How did the Samaritan leper receive wholeness?
Our Lord and saviour asked the lepers to go to the High Priest and show themselves to Him and as they went, they were cleansed. The Samaritan understood that Christ was a priest in the Melchizedek order and He turned back to Him while the rest proceeded to go and show themselves to the priest under the levitical order.
Wholeness comes with the true revelation of who Christ is. This knowledge becomes a future garrison against any attacks of the enemy.
It is a good thing to be prayed for so that you receive your miracle. But receiving a miracle today does not mean that you will never be attacked by disease again as long as you live. Wholeness is the guarantee that if disease is to ever come, you have the revelation to triumph because you know who is in you.
It is a wonderful thing to be prayed for so you get a job. But that prayer does not mean that you will walk out of the clutches of poverty. Wholeness is what guarantees that the grace of divine providence will work continually in your life.
God wants to give you more than a job, a business deal or healing from that sickness. He wants you to know Him because in knowing Him, you receive more than a miracle but the source of miracles. That is wholeness!

GOLDEN NUGGET: God wants to give you more than a job, a business deal or healing from that sickness. He wants you to know Him because in knowing Him, you receive more than a miracle but the source of miracles. That is wholeness!
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. I live in the patterns of wholeness. Divine health and divine providence are mine. Fullness is mine. Strength is mine. I have the source of all good things because you are in me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
