“She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Matthew 9:21, NIV
Good health is important to life itself. Sickness when serious, can make one detest living. Between the year 2010 and 2018, I suffered severe pains in the body that sometimes prevented me from walking and turning on the bed. The very potent pain killers in the market only gave partial and temporary relief.
Neurosurgeons said a permanent solution could only come from a back surgery, which was prepared for twice, but prevented by the Invisible God. As prayers of the faithful continued, around December 2018, God intervened and the pain disappeared. Praise God!
Today’s passage relates the story of how the woman who had been bleeding for twelve years but received her healing by simply touching the cloth of Jesus and how a synagogue leader had his dead daughter’s life restored.
The power of Jesus to heal all kinds of diseases and sicknesses is still as potent as ever. He still raises the dead according to His will. But, we must approach Him in faith. Such faith should not just be when we need Jesus for healing. We should surrender our lives to Him to direct as He wills. When we build a strong relationship with Him, healing becomes our right. All we need is faith. Work more on your relationship with Him today.
