Faith

reachoutI’ve been reading the book of Mark in my morning devotions.  Last week I read the story of how Jesus healed the bleeding woman.  I’ve read the story multiple times before, but this time something new stuck out to me.

After she was healed from touching Jesus’ cloak, He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you.  Go in peace and be freed from your suffering” (Mark 5:34). 

Her FAITH healed her.  It doesn’t say that it was His power, it was her faith.

I don’t know what you may struggling with.  Maybe it’s pornography.  Maybe it’s depression.  Maybe it’s an eating disorder.  Whatever it is, I believe that your faith – if you reach out to Jesus – can heal you too.

“Jesus replied, ‘I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, “Go, throw yourself into the sea,” and it will be done.’” -Matthew 21:21
