Day 14 of 21 Day Daniel Fast – So today’s meditation is about the attitude of Faith. Jesus healed a bunch of Lepers one time and only one came back to thank Him. A woman with the issue of blood touched the hem of Jesus’ garment and it was her GREAT FAITH that made her WHOLE. Our faith is intended to make us whole, so my question today is are we walking around like fragmented beings because of our lack of it there of??? Faith is supposed to make us Whole and we have to pursue a greater measure if we want to walk as completed beings walking in the manifested Glory of God. So my encouragement today is walk knowing that you have the ability through your FAITH to become whole. You don’t have to accept less than what is God’s best for you. Reach out for the Hem of God’s garment, step out into the Water, Pursue Him seeking even for the crumbs left over after a meal. Pray more, meditate more, praise more, do whatever you have to do to get your breakthrough miracle from the Lord. You have the ability to become WHOLE in Jesus’ Name. Think about the story of the woman you had the issue of Blood, she suffered that issue for 12 YEARS. Now, if you ask me, 12 years is a long time but she never gave up hope in finding her answers. A blessing of healing delayed is not a blessing of healing denied. Sometimes, it takes what seems like forever to achieve our goals but we have to have a persevering spirit in order to receive our promises. Be unrelenting and be determined and never back down until you get what you deserve. The persevering is that Faith working in ACTION. It’s that level of Faith that we need to tap into in our daily lives to achieve the dreams that we have in our heart.
Let’s look at Mark 5:24-34:
24So Jesus went with him.
A large crowd followed and pressed around him. 25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. 30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?” 31 “You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’ ” 32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. 33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”
It’s amazing isn’t it that it took that level of unrelenting FAITH to heal the woman with the issue of Blood that she had for 12 long years! It was not just any type of Faith, but Faith in our Lord Jesus to receive her breakthrough miracle. What are you placing your faith in?Is it in science? Is it in philosophy or metaphysics, is it in the stock market, your politicians? Is it in your doctor or your friend, your wife or husband? Who or what has the answer that you seek? What you put your faith in will determine what answer you will receive back. If you put your faith in an inanimate object to protect you, and you still end up in an accident, you have to ask yourself is your faith misguided? You must Trust in something that doesn’t fluctuate or is unchanging. Put your Trust in the Same Yesterday, Today and Forever, Jesus Christ; He is the answer that you seek.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Each day I feel like the Lord is showing me how much Faith we as people need to increase on a daily basis. It is our Faith that we put in Jesus that can make us Whole, or make or family members whole by proxy as we intercede on their behalf. We need to increase so that we can experience the manifest presence of the Lord in our lives. Our Faith is what makes us, who are fragmented people, become Whole in Jesus’ Name. Faith draws us closer to the answers that we seek for our own issues. The answer is Jesus. How much do you believe that He can do for you? Throw away your doubts and skepticism and start to believe that you will indeed receive your answers from GOD. This is something I’m working on on a personal basis so this is my encouragement for today. Stay Blessed everyone!
Scriptures to Meditate
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you
Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.
Who is like you, LORD God Almighty? You, LORD, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you.
1 Corinthians 1:9
God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.
Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”
11 For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, 12 encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory.
13 And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe.
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.
