Scripture: Luke 8:
46 But Jesus said, "Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me."
47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace."
Observation: Our Faith in Christ Jesus gives us power to overcome our biggest problems.
Application: The woman from this scripture had exhausted all of her resources in the natural world to cure her, and had gotten nowhere. But when she heard of Jesus she must have thought, "this is God himself sending me a cure, if I can just get to this man and touch even the hem of his garment I know I’ll be healed." In her weakened condition she fought her way through the crowd, not allowing anyone to stop her or get in her way. Finally she was within reach, and she stretched out her hand reaching through the crowd around this person and that and as He went by she touched Him.
Although people were all around Him, pressing into Him, Jesus knew immediately that someone had reached out in a special way and touched Him with faith, He felt power go out from Himself and He looked for who it was that had received the blessing of that power. When she revealed herself to Christ, He told her "your faith has healed you" even though the power came from Christ, her faith had activated that power. She knew that God had placed this moment and opportunity before her so that she might be healed, and she took advantage of it and found the blessing.
God wants to bless you today. It is His desire that your life be abundant and full, and it doesn’t matter what your issue is, there is power available when you reach out in faith to Jesus. Distance and time are irrelevant when it comes to spiritual matters, so no matter where you are or when you are reading this I join with you right now in agreement that God is present and is ready to Heal, Deliver, and Set Free!
Mat 18:20For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."
My Brother, My Sister, Jesus is walking by you right now. Reach out in faith and be made whole.
Prayer: Father God Almighty,
