Touch God With Faith
This week's series is based on a powerful message from The Word of God called "The Power Of Faith". If you have not seen it already, you can scroll to the bottom of today's blog for the complete video.
Mark 5:24-34(NKJV) - So Jesus went with him, and a great multitude followed Him and thronged Him. 25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. 28 For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.” 29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?” 31 But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’” 32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. 33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. 34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
In the midst of a crowd of people just one woman stood out. Without even looking in her direction He knew that something was different about her touch. Think about that! One woman knew how to get the attention of Jesus. What was her secret? Many people touched Jesus but she was the only one who touched Him with faith.
How can we be so sure? In Mark 4:34, Jesus told her that it was her faith which caused her to be healed and not just His power. The same power for healing was available to everyone touching Him but only she was able to tap into it.
James 1:5-8(NKJV) - If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
Today, it's important to identify the secret to receiving anything from The Lord. It can be summed up into one word, "Faith!" If you have the faith for what you desire you have what you need to receive it. Like the woman with the issue of blood reach out to The Lord today in faith and watch Him move on your behalf.
1 John 5:4(NKJV) - For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
Stay tuned to this week's blog as we dig deeper into the topic of faith. If you can get this, you will see dramatic results. It's time for you to live in victory and what's the victory that overcomes the world? Faith!
