KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 9:20 KJV “And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:”
(Please read Mark 5:25-34)
Can one determine, when he or she would be healed? This is a big dilemma of many children of God. The story above gives us some very important clues. The woman in question had been suffering from a constant blood flow for twelve years. Mark reported that she had suffered many things of many physicians. This woman managed to receive healing from the Lord. She decided she was going to be healed and indeed she was healed.
After so many years of suffering she heard about the great miracle power of Jesus Christ. She decided that the next time Jesus came to town she would receive her healing.
Mark 5:28 KJV “For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.” She then acted on her words and went to touch the helm of His garment. She was made instantly whole. Let’s consider her steps to her healing:
1.She heard about Jesus, building faith in her. (Roman 10:17)
2 She decided to make her way through the cloud and touch His garment
3.She said, if I touch his garment, I would be whole. (Note according to Mark 11:23, you can have what you say and believe)
4.She acted on her word by going to touch his garment
5.After touching Jesus’ dress, she believed she was healed and she was set free.
THIS is receiving your healing by personal faith. She believed and acted on what she heard about Jesus. You can also receive your healing by acting on the word of God you hear. I checked my blood pressure some years ago, and it was very low. I also knew that my father used to have very low blood pressure. My mind just told me this is a hereditary sickness. I quickly turned to Romans 8:11. It talks about the Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from death, who also lives in our bodies, would likewise give life to our body. . I said to myself that the Holy Spirit has given life to this body of mine. I stopped caring about that condition, and lo and behold it was the end of that condition.
Dear child of God, if your faith says yes, God would not say no. From our story, this woman received her healing by faith. The Lord said, since the days of John the Baptist, the kingdom of God suffers (allows) violence and the violent take it by force (Matt 11:12)
If you are sick, you can be healed today by counting on the promise of the scriptures as true and getting your mind settled that your healing is perfected.
Heavenly Father, you have provided healing for me, through our Lord Jesus, according to the scriptures, He carried away my diseases. I receive my healing and thank you for it, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Matthew 9:22 KJV” 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.”
Mark 10:52 KJV” And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.”
