THEME: REWARD OF FAITH
“And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment. For she said to herself, “If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.” But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, “Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And the woman was made well from that hour.”
-The woman with the issue of blood was desperately in need of help. She sort for salvation from many physicians but she did not get help and her condition remained the same or worsened for twelve years. When she believed in Jesus, she was saved. It is through our faith in Christ Jesus that we receive the gift of salvation (Ephesians 2:8). We know from the scriptures, John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. The woman presented her condition to the Lord and the Lord healed her. Sometimes we carry many burdens in our minds, hearts and bodies which might have overweighted on us for many years. These circumstances deplete our faith in God and unbelief creeps in. They squeeze our strength dry and sometimes we fail to pray thinking to ourselves, why are we even praying? Does God really hear our prayers? For twelve years some of us have sort for physicians for better health, sort for magicians for better financial strength, marriage issues and political strength, our own strength in many matters even when God has promised us better. Sometimes we look at our conditions and doubt takes over our hearts. Like the woman who had the issue of blood, God calls us to look to Him only and our faith in Him will make us well.
Jesus You are merciful and Your mercies are everlasting. Thank You for Your merciful love upon our lives, families and nation. Thank You for Your saving grace upon us. Touch our hearts and minds and deliver us from unbelief. Forgive us from unbelief Jesus and wash us with Your precious blood. Like the women who suffered for twelve years from the issue of blood, heal us from every issue that we are suffering from and make us whole. May Your peace that surpasses all understanding take over our hearts and minds, families and friends, jobs and businesses, president and all leaders, ministry and churches, nation and entire world, through You Christ Jesus. Amen
