HAPPY WITH CHURCH TONIGHT
“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 whole” (Mt 9:20, 21)
We just ended our women fellowship in the church. We shared wonderful testimonies and we praised God in song and dance. Then the Word of God came. “God wants to bless you at another higher level of blessings! God wants you to enter into a season of healing and prosperity!”
This is the story of a dying woman who was healed by her faith in Jesus. At this time in her life she has no money, no hope, no strength and no life. Because of her condition, it is possible that she has no husband and no friends. Then she hears about Jesus! This is the moment faith was born in her heart! “Faith comes by hearing the Word of God’ (Rom 10:17). She was told that Jesus is the Christ; that He has healed many from incurable diseases just like her. She was told that Jesus is not like the other doctors who made her suffer; that He does not even ‘charge money’ for treatment. “What does Jesus expects from me?”- She asked others… She was told that the only thing Jesus expects from her is faith in His Person! She has to believe that He is the Son of God; that He is Jehovah, that He is the Word of God made flesh and that He can do all things. These words planted faith in her heart. Immediately she made up her mind to use the last drop of strength to seek Jesus, wherever she may find Him.
‘She said to herself: “If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made whole”. This is the beginning of the miracle of healing. This woman spoke to herself! She started conversing with the Word of God within her soul. This type of meditation is the foundation of healing faith. It is a proof that you are born again. The unbelievers ignore their dead soul and have no interest to disturb it. Please think about this! Talk to your soul! Encourage yourself in the Lord! This interior spiritual conversation is like the wind blowing over the valley of dead dry bones. It will help you ‘kick’ the dead battery of your miracle! Selah! King David did the same thing: “Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God” (Ps 43:5)
The more she held on the Word of God, the more she encouraged herself, the stronger her faith grew inside. She now believed that just a touch will be enough to make her whole. If the tips of her fingers can touch the edge of the garment of Jesus, that will be enough to heal her instantly and completely. She trusted God, not just for an improvement, not for just getting ‘better’ but for a total and final healing and deliverance. With just a touch, the sickness will be gone completely! Faith 100%! Doubt 0%!
To be made ‘whole’ it is more than an improvement in your circumstances. It means to become the way God created you to be and nothing less than that. In Greek, the word translated ‘made whole’ is the same as the one used for ‘salvation’. To be made whole it is a total salvation, renewing and healing of your body soul and spirit. Only God can do that! This is a great revelation! This woman aimed for the best! She inspires me. When we are sick or in trouble, we tend to compromise and accept ‘anything that will make us feel better’. The devil takes advantage of this weakness and supplies temporary solutions that we may regret later. This partial healing will prevent your becoming whole. Think about it! Do not be impatient when praying for a miracle! Aim for the best God has for you! Let this be your desire and prayer: “Lord Jesus, I trust You alone to make me whole…” Aim for the best!
