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 healing from many physicians and spent all she had but her condition worsened (Mark 5:26). She interrupted Jesus journey when He was going to heal Jairus daughter. She believed that when she touches the hem of Jesus garment, she would be healed, and true to fact a miracle happened in her life. Jesus then said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction” (Mark 5:34). During this time of COVID-19 and before, many have suffered situations like that of this woman. Some suffer serious health issues, other have lost their jobs, received pay cuts, closed down their businesses, churches have been closed, lost their loved ones, suffered separation and divorce, lost an year or semester off-school, encountered challenges due to a corrupt government and a myriad of challenges. Sometimes we carry heavy burdens in our hearts and minds 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, others sort for magicians for better financial strength, marriage issues and political strength, but God has promised us better. In Matthew 19:26 Jesus said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” 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. Let us cast all our burdens unto the Lord and touch the hem of His garment and He will deliver us from all our troubles. God calls us to give thanks to Him in all situations, which is a statement of faith and He will always deliver us from any form of darkness, and give us the light of His salvation.
I sought the Lord and He answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Jesus You are merciful and Your mercies endures forever. Thank You for Your saving grace upon us. Heal our hearts and minds from all anxiety 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 in our lives, families, schools, churches, jobs, businesses, leadership, economy, nation and entire world, and make us whole dear Jesus. May Your peace that surpasses all understanding take over our hearts and minds, and all these areas through You Christ Jesus. We cast all our burdens and cares unto You Jesus for You care for us. Let us rest secure in You and heal all our wounds; we humbly ask You. Take over our lives and every situation Holy Spirit and increase our faith. All things are possible with You Lord. May Your praises be always on our lips for only You are our Deliverer and Strength. May the light of Your salvation touch all people and nations, and we shall dwell in Your house forever. Our Father who art in heaven; hallowed be Your name; Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from evil; for thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory; forever and ever. Amen
