Matthew 9:22 “But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, ‘Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well.’ And the woman was made well from that hour.”
Jesus is constantly telling us through the Gospels that what we believe will come to pass! If we can change our thoughts, we can change our lives. If we can believe it, we can receive it. This isn’t about naming and claiming something that isn’t meant for us or is against the will of God. This is about claiming what God has promised is ours to have! Healthy bodies, sound minds, loving families, and generous lives that bless others are all promises of God for every one of us. Is your faith active to believe God for those things to be yours? Just as a baker makes a cake with the right ingredients, you are making your life. Be intentional to use the right ingredients of faith.
The woman who touched the hem of Jesus’ garment in Matthew 9 did all she could to get to Jesus. Although she was condemned to total isolation unless clearly identified, she risked her life with an act of bravery and Jesus accredited her greatly by saying that her faith healed her! What is your faith doing for you?
Renewal Thought: God has given you great authority in your life through faith. You can change your life as you start believing you are able. Put your faith to work and believe that God wants you to be healed and whole in every way.
Prayer: Father, I pray for new thoughts that will bring me to new places. I pray Your Word will be big in my mind so my faith will grow stronger and stronger. Thank you, Father, for leading me beyond doubts and fears. Faith is working in me. I believe that I receive all your promises to me.
