Can you imagine the amount of faith it took for the lady with the discharge of blood to touch Jesus and believe for a healing? “If only I could touch his cloak, I will be healed.” She told herself. It’s interesting the amount of power in a touch. Jesus touched the rulers daughter and the blind man. The woman with the discharged touched Jesus’ cloak.
The “touch” is what connects these miracles together. The touch is a symbol of God’s power. The same power that we have access to because of what Jesus did on that Cross. You might ask, “How do I access that power?” The answer is simple – Step your faith up!
I was thinking one day of how scientist describe the formation of the world. They call it The Big Bang theory. The credit the formation of the universe to a massive explosion of energy that formed the galaxies. From the explosion, there was so much heat that it created light. From there every atom and particle was formed, including waters and land, and so on and so forth.
To be honest, how science attempts to describe creation, is closely related to how the book of Genesis describes it, but it all comes down to Faith, which science cannot explain.
My definition of power is as follows: Power is the ability to believe (faith) in something so strong that it comes into existence. Therefore, power is faith and faith is power. One cannot exist without the other. When we consider it this way, it makes conceptualizing The Big Bang Theory easier. God faithed (using is as a verb) the universe into existence. He believed it so much, that it became so. That is the only way to describe it.
What does creation have to do with faith? The answer to that is, even God has faith. It is the key to his Almighty power. In Exodus 3:14, God says, “I am that I am.” God is everything because he believes it. God is faith and faith is power. We see examples of this all throughout the bible.
In the miracles referenced earlier where God healed the woman with the issue of blood, when he brought back sight into the blind man, and when he raised the ruler’s daughter from the dead; He was able to do these things through his own faith in himself.
I’m saying all of that to say this: Faith is the key to unlocking God’s power. This is why he requires us to have faith in Him. In faith, there is no doubt. Jesus said, “Everything is possible for one who believes.” This was not just casual conversation, this was instruction, a commandment.
What are you believing God for today? What dreams have God placed in your heart? What vision of victory do you have for your life? Ask yourself these questions and start believing. Step your faith up. As the ruler believed life would be restored to his dead daughter, as the blind man believed his would gain sight, and as the bleeding woman believed for healing, you must believe in whatever God has promised you.
Is it healing? A home or business loan from the bank? A new career, or a promotion? Healing from a sickness? Whatever is it, your unwavering faith is power. Believe it is and it shall be so. This belief is what unlocks the power of heaven.
This is why the enemy attacks our mind more than anything. He tries to send doubt our way… make us question ourselves, our skills, our abilities. He does this so we forget that if we believe in something strong enough that it will come to pass. What I am asking is that you get an image of whatever it is that you want in your mind. Focus your energy, all your beliefs on it and watch how it comes into existence.
That same “touch” Jesus has, we have it too. That touch resides in our beliefs, our faith, which is our power. If you believe this, then you are ready to prosper in every area of your life. Amen.
