Faith is confidence in things hoped for and faith comes by the word of God. Both Pam and the lady with the issue of blood had simple faith in God’s word that he was willing to heal them. And he did.
Pam had endured motor neurone disease for many years. MND is a dreadful condition that affects the brain and nerves. It causes weakness and inflicts an incapacity that gets worse with time. There’s no cure for MND. MND can significantly shorten life expectancy and eventually leads to death. Pam had developed to the point where she was unable to move about unassisted. She was enduring severe muscle cramps and twitches and had lost so much weight that her muscles had atrophied. She lay in bed, contemplating the power of God to heal.
Pam was a believer. She had surrendered her life to Jesus as a child and had grown up under the teaching of God’s word. She knew that God’s word was God’s will and that God’s word promised healing. As she lay alone in her bed that morning Pam spoke out the words that the Holy Spirit dropped into her heart, “By whose stripes you were healed.” Her faith began to rise.
“Lord, if you can heal me help me to sit up.” Pam strained but gradually she sat upright. “Dear God, I know your word promises healing. Help me throw my legs over the edge of my bed.” She did. “Okay, Lord, help me get up and walk to the door.” Pam precariously rose and made her way to the bedroom door. “Thank you, Jesus!” she uttered. “Now help me walk down the garden to Dave’s office.”
Pam’s husband, Dave, was a doctor. He practiced from home and had a small office at the bottom of their garden. Hearing a knock on the door, he rose and opened it. Dave almost fell backward as he saw his once incapacitated wife standing, unaided, at his office door. Totally healed!
And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace and be healed of your affliction.”.Mark 5:34
Jesus said to the woman who touched his cloak in a crowded marketplace, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Be healed of your affliction.” This dear lady, like Pam, had no one pray for her. Jesus hadn’t even laid a hand on her. Yet, she believed that it was his will to heal and that he had the power to heal her illness. And he did.
Faith is confidence in things hoped for and faith comes by the word of God. Both Pam and the lady with the issue of blood had heard God’s Word. They heard that he promised healing. Both Pam and the lady with the issue of blood had a simple faith in God’s word that he was willing to heal them. And he did.
God’s word is God’s will. God’s word promises healing. Faith is confidence in God’s word.
God-tracking is believing God will heal.
