If I only TOUCH His garment, I shall be restored to health…….

In the 9th chapter of the book of Matthew, we read about a woman who had an uncontrolled flow of blood in her body for the last twelve years. Twelve years was a pretty long time. As she prepared for a close encounter with the King of Kings, she kept saying to herself.’ I will be healed, I will be healed and all I need to do is touch the garment of the Lord. And when she did so, without doubting she was not disappointed. So also, we will not be disappointed when we prayerfully approach the Lord in faith. She saw her healing before it happened, she spoke it and did what she decided to do. She declared ‘I will be healed’. This faith did not go unnoticed by the Lord.

So what are we saying today. To ourselves, to others around us. Let us remind ourselves

For she kept saying to herself, If I only touch His garment, I shall be restored to
health.    Mat 9:21

again that with God nothing shall be impossible. Let us release all the limits that We have set on God. Some times we tell our children’You are useless, and will never change’. We keep saying ‘It will never happen for me, I have always been a failure’. Today let us consciously focus our energies and our thoughts on the Lord. From now on let us speak in faith expecting things to happen. Let us speak life, let us speak hope for our children, family and all whom we come in touch with everyday. The Lord will see the faith in your words and the miracle will come forth. This one statement of faith that you make, can make all the difference in your life and in the life of others.

The lady wanted to be healed when she touched the garment and the Lord granted her healing according to her faith. She set the conditions and the Lord honoured it.

Prayer: Loving Heavenly Father, Forgive me for the times I have been rude, angry, and may have cursed others. Today I pray, that Lord you will bless them. From today grant me the grace to always encourage others and to speak life into every situation. Help me to speak in faith and see changes happening. All because I ask in Jesus name. 

Faith made whole

The Bible says in Mark11:24   For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident that it is granted to you, and you will get it.

THE BIBLE: Read it everyday. It records all the victories that God has given you as a believer. Read it passionately to know your new position and inheritance in Christ.

 

Reflections *12 – His continuing work in our lives

mud

Out of the dust we are formed

Our God is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the author and the finisher, the one who begins and the one who brings to completion, Everlasting to Everlasting God who never changes. When God does all this then the best we could do is yield and submit and stand in faith and see His mighty works in our life.

Things around us may seem insignificant to us. What we are doing now may seem too little. The day we have given our hearts to the Lord, His work has begun in our lives. We may not understand or see all of it now, but it is true. An old chorus says:

He’s still working on me
To make me what I ought to be
It took Him just a week to make
Sun and moon, and Jupiter and mars
How loving and patient He must be
He’s still working on me.

Let us be confident in Him. Let us thank Him for all that we know has happened and See the source imagestand in faith looking unto Him for what He is still completing, and will complete in our lives.

Prayer: Loving Heavenly Father, I thank you that you are working in my life. I believe that all my yesterdays and my today’s put together, and all that has happened the good and the bad is working out for my good. Today, I stand believing in you Lord, that you will bring every work to completion and fulfill you plans in my life for the future. Let my life bring glory and praise to your name. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

The Bible says in Mark 11:24 For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident that it is granted to you, and you will get it.
