When the woman with the issue of blood (Mark 5:24-34) – touched the hem of Jesus’ garment – virtue (miraculous healing power) went out of Him and into her… Jesus had not sought her out to pray for her – neither had she requested that He pray for her…. Rather it happened because she believed (and voiced what she believed)… that if she could only touch His clothes, she would be healed…. And thus it happened that when she touched His clothes – healing virtue went out of Him and healed her. Her faith “drew out” the healing virtue that was/is resident in Him. We know this is so because Jesus turned to her and said “Daughter, your faith has made you whole.”….
Even so – your faith and my faith – draws on and receives from God’s divine supply of grace and provision sufficient to fill every need.. The divine supply for all our needs is already there….He made this provision for us because of.. and according to.. what Jesus paid for and did for us in God’s redemption plan for man…. And Hebrews 4:15,16 tells us that He can indeed be touched with the feeling of our infirmities….That means that He WANTS to help us and to supply our needs!
Our part is FAITH…. And as Jesus said to His disciples.. we only need “faith the size of a mustard seed” in order to receive from God.. or to do the things that He asks us to do… You might ask “How can I get this little bit of faith that I need to receive from God?”
Faith is the gift of God to us… It comes as we get to know Him and trust Him – through His Word and taking time aside from other things to spend with Him (as you would with any person that you want to get to know.) It’s for all those who choose to receive Jesus.. and exercise faith to believe….
The real answer to all of this .. is found in your continued fellowship with God …. For as you get to know Him, the things of His Spirit and of His Kingdom – begin to get into you and affect all that you think and do. And with each answered prayer, you will find that trusting Him becomes more and more the “natural” thing for you….
God’s divine supply of healing virtue in Jesus – was available for the woman with the issue of blood…. And that same divine supply is there for you… It’s held in trust for all those who choose to receive Him – and exercise faith to believe.
