Mark 5:34 And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”
What needs healing in your life today? Is it your marriage, your finances, your health, your walk with God, your children’s walk with God, your job – what is it? Are you at the point of feeling as though there is no hope? This lady had been suffering for 12 years and yet she knew that if she could just get close to Jesus she could be healed. 12 years is a long time to suffer and still have hope, but she truly believed that nothing was impossible for Him!
Life can be so frustrating at times and Satan knows just exactly when to attack and he knows exactly what tactics to use. He watches and he is patient so when he sees you are down he knows it is time to kick you even harder so he can get you to the point of feeling as though your situation is hopeless. Your situation is never hopeless unless you give up or you refuse to give it all to God! I know how it feels to be in a situation where you are at the end of all you can take and you can’t see how things can work out. After Bill and I had to shut down the ministry we were overwhelmed with the fact that we both lost our salaries and there were bills yet that still had to be paid before we could “officially” shut things down, it all seemed hopeless. How do you pay your own bills as well as the bills of a ministry when you both lost your income? Maybe for you it is your finances, the economy really took a dive a couple years ago and I know many people lost jobs and then once money is an issue in a relationship a lot of times marriages are jeopardized because of the stress.
Whatever it is you are facing today Jesus would like you to come to Him just like the lady who just knew “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” Take any feelings of hopelessness, hurt or frustration you may have today and know that He does care and He can and will help, pour your heart out to Him today trusting that He will move in your life and He can heal you of your illness, He can heal your marriage and your finances, nothing is too difficult for Him! In the case of this woman, Jesus didn’t even set out to help her, she believed and it was so. Trust Him today, pray that He will give you any faith you are lacking for your situation and walk in victory today, knowing that the best is yet to come!
