Healing and life
Not For Sale
And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. (Matthew 9:20-22 KJV)
We all need something from Jesus, the Healer… Be it personal, physical, financial, health related or etc. … and always strength of soul, heart and mind…peace, joy, forgiveness, understanding and the list goes on. We are no different than this woman was other than she had more faith. Can you imagine having her ailment for twelve years? Friends, Family, other relatives, co-laborers, church members….
saying forget it, accept your disease and just live with it, you will never be healed or change or hey, this is your cross to bear! (We all know or should know – bearing the cross means to take the benefits of what was done their and the victories and live your life bountifully and accordingly in Christ and unto Christ).
This woman did not allow her environment or circumstance to deter her from believing, enduring and waiting….does yours? She held fast the faith and I would dare say she had read Job and in Job 13:15 where he says” though He slay me, yet will I trust Him”….while we now are under grace, and not Law we should still see it as Job did….no matter what I will serve Him.
Have you an issue; have you a need, desire (that meets His criteria for answer) have you anything that only He can do? Trust, Believe and Obey the Word … the more you resist doing things His way and as His Word says the longer you will remain in the fiery trial! She waited and did not heed the enemy in any form in which he came to her and believe me friend, he came…just as he does to you and me…he came…but she stood still to see the salvation of God, she stood to know He is God….
Her only action was believing for many years and now that great faith she had is coming to pass or maybe better said, she is now about to be paid a handsome reward for her faith, trust and belief….
She is sitting on her porch ….maybe making a flour cake (bread) for dinner …. Or maybe it is early morning and she just had prayer and breakfast…..then it happens….she hears that Jesus is coming, could it be…all she has hoped for is now in sight and she knows with no doubt she can be healed, even if she just touches the hem of His garment….
she will be made whole (by faith). See, too many people want the whole garment or believe it is from the material itself in some form or fashion and whatever it may be…
she had faith in Christ and believed…..maybe you should not want it all at once or maybe you should seek Him and not what the wind of false doctrine or good old church people have given you …. Seek Jesus, seek Jesus, seek Jesus …. He is the answer to every need you have and ever will have….believe on Him and He will not fail you ….
She is coming with belief, she wants healing and she knows where to get it, she walks towards Jesus pressing through the crowd ….like the “little engine that could” she was at the I know I can, I know I can stage…and she was just about to reach out and Jesus turned with eyes of love and a smile you can never forget I would dare say and said, “Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole”.
See, Jesus knew she was coming- He was ever waiting for her to approach with her great faith and now she was going away saying, I knew He could, I knew He could….oh! My! I feel that in my soul as I type…he was there waiting, all for the Glory of God and as she came she was healed….
He is waiting for you to come to Him with your “issue” won’t you do it today …please trust Him, Love Him, and have faith …the sooner you do the sooner you will be out of your dilemma and into His wonderful grace.
