And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace (Luke 8:48).
Matthew 9:27 tells us of two blind men that followed Jesus crying, “…Thou Son of David, have mercy on us”. He asked them: “Do you believe I’m able to do this?”. They answered affirmatively, and He touched them and their eyes opened. Their faith-response connected them with their healing.
Believing is from, and with the heart (Romans 10:10). You don’t believe with your brain or with your mind; you believe with your spirit. When you believe with your spirit and respond according to your believing, your faith produces results. In Luke 8:43-44, the Bible tells us of the story of a woman who had suffered an issue of blood for twelve years and how she received her healing just by touching the border of Jesus’ garment. This was no ordinary touch, because the Lord felt the impact of it, so much so, that He asked, “Who touched me?”
The woman, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before the Master and told Him what happened. The Lord then said to her, “…Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace” (Luke 8:48). The Master identified her faith as what made her whole. It was her faith that touched Jesus and connected her to her healing. It was a spiritual touch. She saw the Lord Jesus beyond the physical man; she saw Him as the Son of God, and touched Him with her spirit. Faith is of the spirit.
Your faith is what makes the connection. The woman with the issue of blood, when she had heard of Jesus, said to herself, “…If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole”. She believed, confessed her believing, and went for her miracle. You can do the same!
PRAYER ( SAY THIS ALOUD )
Dear Father, I thank you for the opportunity to study your Word, and increase my faith. As I put my faith to work, I experience an endless stream of the miraculous from day to day, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Hebrews 11:1 (KJV )
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Romans 10:10 ( KJV )
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
