Mark Day 14
And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace and be healed of your disease.”
The only thing we “do” to receive God’s blessings, is believe. The only thing that God cannot do is to believe for us. Believing is our part in this great relationship with God. In this story, Jesus is on a mission to save a young girl who is dying when this woman reaches out and touches Him. Immediately she is healed. Jesus didn’t even seem to know that the woman was there and seeking His touch. But the moment faith reached out to touch Jesus, the power of God reached out and touched her. There is a faith here that is revealed here in two ways. First of all, there is the faith of the woman who reaches out to touch Jesus. But then there is the faith of Jesus that is so real that it was released from Him without His permission. That is what God can do through faith. Remember, Jesus is showing us what the Christian life looks like. Where there is “faith” there is the power of God to save and heal and deliver. Where there is “faith” there are impossible possibilities that can happen without our permission.
