Topic: Beyond All Expectations
Scripture: When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. – Matthew 8:1–3

When the Lord blesses you, He blesses you beyond what you expect. In the healing of the man with leprosy, Jesus reached out and touched the man, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” And immediately, the man was healed.
My friend, did you notice that Jesus touched the man first before He healed him? I love these little gestures of Jesus! That simple touch restored a sense of humanity and dignity to the man who had not been touched for a long time. Because of his unclean and physically repulsive condition, no one wanted to be close to him, much less touch him.
Jesus knew that the man needed more than just physical healing, so He gave above and beyond what the man had hoped for. Beloved, that’s the love and over-supplying grace of your Savior!
What is your lack today? Know beyond any doubt that Jesus’ provision will exceed all your expectations!
