In someone’s smile, they hide something; what people see is the other side. People did not know, that in front of a happy face there was fear inside. Fear of loss, fear because of disease they have right now. If we cannot overcome this fear, we going to lose our faith, and we going to lose the battle. According to Andy Mitten, “Half of the battle is won in mind.”
In the holy bible, there was a story of a woman who had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but instead grew worse.
She had heard the reports about Jesus. She found out that many were healed and she said; he did it for others he can do it for me. For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” The problem was that there was a great crowd surrounding Jesus. However, even she’s weak because she loss blood for years but she didn’t give up instead she started making her way to the masses. She keeps going, and her mind keeps saying I will be healed, healing is coming. She’s exhausted and finally fell in the ground, I’m tired, and I am weak, but I know I am close to my breakthrough.
The reason why she keeps going, because she holds the right thoughts playing in her mind. She crawls in few more feet, just in the right time she reaches out, and touch Jesus garments. And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.
All of a sudden Jesus stop, and said, “Who touched my garments?” Moreover, his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’ ” He said, no, maybe somebody bumped into me, but I know somebody just touched me. Somebody draw miracle-working power out of me, they believe healing was coming, they believe new doors are going to open, somebody touched me with expectancy. About that time Jesus looked at this woman, their eyes met, and she was afraid thought she done something wrong but Jesus smiled, and he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace and be healed of your disease.”
To God be the glory.
