Mathew 9:21-22 – She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.
This woman did not need Jesus to even talk to her – she just wanted to touch His coat. With that touch she believed she would be healed. And yes she was healed.
Too often we struggle in our faith. When we pray, we come into His presence and there we give God our burdens. Why do we pick them back up on the way out of His presence? Why do we feel God has to come to our workplace to fix things, to our homes and meet our needs, to our relationships and deal with our ego, to our problems and remove them? It is because our faith is weak.
Faith is taking His promises that He gives to us in His presence and walking out knowing that He will keep every promise. It is touching His garment and knowing God has heard and will answer our prayers.
Let’s come into His presence. Let’s hear the promises from His Word. Let’s leave with the faith of this woman knowing because we’ve chose to believe Him and His promises, our faith will heal us.
Father, today in Your presence, I want to hear You speak. Let Your Word wash over me and saturate my mind and thoughts. I want to hear the promises spoken from Your mouth. Your words are life. I want Your life in abundance. Forgive me when I have left Your presence in the past and picked up my burdens on the way out. I choose today to leave only with the promises You speak. In Jesus’ name I pray Amen.
NB: A prayer of faith ushers you into the presence of God.
