Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

Now it happened on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come out of every town of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was present to heal them. – Lk 5:17

The Pharisees and teachers of the law came to see Jesus with the worst intentions. They were trying to trick Him: to catch Him in His words. They only came to see Him to evaluate His weaknesses (hint: there were none). Yet even though they came to God with malicious intent, He was still willing to heal them.

When God’s power is present, healing happens. Power is the Greek dunamis (Strong’s #1411), which means the inherent power residing in God by virtue of His nature. The power of God was present on that day, even in the midst of doubt and unbelief, because Jesus was present as a carrier of God’s Presence. And wherever you go, the power of God is present, because His Holy Spirit lives in you!

God’s power overrides doubt. God’s power overrides unbelief and malicious intent. God’s power settles on even the most skeptical seekers, because God loves to use the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. God’s power trumps all!


Father, thank You for making me a carrier of Your presence. I know that wherever I go, You are ready to put Your miracle-working power on full display. Thank You for trusting me to proclaim healing in the name of Jesus!
