‘Your faith has made you whole’
For the whole of the past month, this statement has been resonating within my spirit. Let’s look at the woman with the issue of blood, I am sure that this passage will speak to you for many reasons, maybe you have the same issue, maybe you have been struck by illness, maybe you are struggling with something but I am sure that at some point in your life, you have had some sort of issue that just wouldn’t go away.
Now, the woman who had this issue with her blood, Mark 5 tells us that she was constant bleeding and was stricken for around 12 years, now in these times, that is a very long time. How someone didn’t think of doing drastic is beyond me, having to be stuck with an illness, you would think life wouldn’t get any better. You could just imagine the amount of pain it would have caused her. She had consulted many physicians and doctors about her issue but all they could give her was not enough to heal her. In fact, she wasn’t getting better, she was getting worse.
Now, Jesus was on the scene and was on his way to lay his hands on a little girl who was dying and that resulted in a crowd around him. Imagine going to your local doctors, GP or hospital and seeing a crowd around there, I’m sure you would feel disheartened in your spirit.
The woman with the issue of blood, she was in the crowd, it didn’t faze her because she thought to herself “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed”. So she touched his garment and she was healed instantly and she could feel it in her body. This woman has extraordinary faith, she didn’t need him to touch her, she had to touch him. Whether she got to the front of the altar or not, she had to touch his garment and she did. As soon as it happened, Jesus turned to the woman and said to her “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, your suffering is over”.
There are some issues or conditions that the natural man can’t solve, there are some issues or conditions that the natural man can’t heal. The only person that can heal you is Jesus but the question is this – Do you have enough faith that he can heal you? Are you willing to touch the hem of his garment?
Your faith is enough to make you whole, I look at being well as being whole. I see perfect wellbeing as someone who is whole. Jesus can heal you if you are willing to put your faith into action.
Let me present a truth to you that God delivered to me – You may be on medication that has been prescribed but the difference between it healing you and not healing you is your faith. This changed my life because now whenever I take anything, I call on God and tell him that I have faith that this can heal me.
Let that truth resonate in your heart also.
I pray that God grants you enough faith so you can boldly approach the throne of grace and claim your healing in Jesus name.
