Matthew 9:21-For she said within herself, “If I may just touch His garment, I shall be healed.
This text is a message of hope to all those who may find themselves in a situation that appears to be hopeless. Those who have reviewed their situation or current circumstances as one with no escape route.
The woman in this text who is described as a "certain woman" had an issue of blood for 12 long years. In other words, she had been bleeding for 12 years.
This "certain woman" had been dealing with a hemorrhaging problem and had gone from one doctor after another seeking her much needed help and cure for her condition.
In her every attempt to find healing for her condition, this woman condition worsened and she ended up bankrupt.
After a worsening medical condition, one bad report after another and bankruptcy, this woman made up in her mind that she was going to be healed.
This woman "BELIEVED" that healing was hers and that she was doing to get it at any cost. How? She did not know, but she "BELIEVED" it was gonna happen.
This "certain woman" was desperate for her healing. Are you desperate enough in your situation for a change?
Perhaps, you may not be in need of a physical healing, a spiritual healing or help in another area in your life.
Whatever your desperate situation is on today, this certain woman is proof to all of us that there is hope.
This woman was not given a name, she was called a "certain woman", she had been separated from all she knew and love because of her condition, she had been an outcast in society and was suppose to be home bound. She was sick, broke, lonely and feeling all alone and hopeless.
After 12 years of suffering and desperately seeking help, this woman made up in her mind that she was gonna be healed. She purposed in her heart that she would receive it at any cost.
In other words, this woman "BELIEVED" to be possible, what man considered to be the "impossible" concerning her condition.
If this woman had not seen her hopeless situation as one that could be cured, she would have never gotten her healing.
What about you? Do you believe God for the impossible on today?
Having heard about Jesus and by faith, believing what she heard, she began to see with new vision through the spirit by faith.
What she heard, we are not told in scripture, but I know she heard the Word of God. I make my case on the declaration of John 1:1-In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. JESUS IS THE WORD!!!
In other words, she "BELIEVED" and received by faith, what she heard about Jesus and decided to act upon it.
She made a decision to change what she saw and think by viewing her situation from the spirit realm and not in the natural.
In her mind's eyes, she no longer saw herself as a sick woman, but a woman that had already been healed.
I have been there before, in many instances in my life where I declared unto the Lord these words: "Lord, I do not know when, where or how, but I know that you are able to do it and that you WILL bring me out"!
GUESS WHAT? It took some time, but God delivered me!!! GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY!!!!!
MIRACLES FROM GOD REQUIRES "MAKE NO SENSE CRAZY FAITH"! That is where you have to get to receive your miracle.
In other words, your faith may require you to look like a fool before unbelievers. BUT GOD!!!
Life and death is in the power of the tongues. SPEAK LIFE PEOPLE OF GOD!!!!!
Romans 10:17-faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.
The bible says she "heard" about Jesus. We are not given any specifics, but I believe that what she heard convinced her that Jesus was the man she waited 12 long years for and she was not going to let this opportunity pass her by.
We must do the same! We must be determined to receive all that God has for us.
We must pray, read and study the Word of God daily, believe it, in spite of our circumstances, apply it to our thinking and our lives and we too will see ourselves out and not in whatever desperate situation we too may currently find ourselves in.
"BELIEVE" the Word of God, apply it by speaking it over your situation. NO, IT WON'T MAKE ANY SENSE! Why? Because what you see with the natural eyes will appear the same for a while, but in the spirit, you MUST believe that it is already done, regardless of what you see.
Deliverance can be immediately or over a period of time, but with God it is possible for them that believe.
Scripture declares in Hebrews 11:6- And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
This woman lived 12 years in a hopeless situation and in one day after hearing about Jesus, hope became alive within her.
Having heard about Jesus. Having heard the Word of God, this woman said within herself “"if i may but touch the hymn of His garment, I shall be made whole."
THAT’S FAITH PEOPLE OF GOD!!! UNWAVERING FAITH!! Faith that is not by sight but by FAITH!
Having heard and believing the Word of God, this woman makes her move toward Jesus as He passes through her town.
She crawls desperately through the crowed, hope to not be noticed and she reaches out and touches the hymn of Jesus' garment and scripture declares that she was healed immediately.
Jesus Himself asked “who touched Me”?
With that great, massive crowd that surrounded Jesus that day, He felt the touch of one faith filled desperate woman who believe that He was indeed the One sent from God to save them that were lost, sick and in captivity and she was made whole immediately.
How about you and I. What have we heard about Jesus that has caused us to believe that we too are already of our desperate situation?
If you see yourself out of your situation based on the Words of God that is found in this text, deliverance can be yours on today too.
IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT WE SEE, BUT WHAT WE BELIVE!
A "MIRACLE" has to be seen through the eyes of faith in the Word of God before it happens in the natural!
Once you see it with your spiritual eyes, the next move is action in the natural. Steps toward making it happen with Christ.
BELIEVE!!! This is the Word of the day.
Mark 9:23- Jesus said, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Mark 11:24- Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you will receive them, and you will have them.
Sometimes it takes what is called by the world “CRAZY FAITH” to receive a “MIRACLE”.
Where are you in your faith concerning your desperate situation?
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO THEM THAT BELIVE?
Proof if placed before all of on today that with God all things are possible to them that belive.
The choice is ours now. To believe or not to believe. To receive our much needed miracle by faith or to stay where we are and keep hoping that it will happen.
In the name of Jesus, “I BELIEVE’!
