Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.” Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?” But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?'” And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction” (Mark 5:25-34).
Faith releases God’s healing power into our bodies! There were crowds of people touching Jesus the day this woman was healed. The multitudes were thronging Him. They were pressing upon Him. Their touch released no power from Jesus into their bodies. But the moment this woman touched Jesus with faith in her touch, healing power went out of Him and into her. She was completely healed.
Jesus is now seated at the right hand of the Father. He promised that when He left and went to heaven, the Holy Spirit would take His place and be for us everything Jesus was to the disciples. That same healing power that was in Jesus is available to us as believers by the Holy Spirit! But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you (Romans 8:11).
Remember that it was faith that activated the healing power to flow out of Jesus into this woman who was ill and that power healed her. And it takes faith now to activate the healing power resident in you in the person of the Holy Spirit. If you’ll act your faith, then you will activate the healing power of God that is in your spirit by the Holy Spirit.
Mediate on the scriptures that promise healing, then act your faith. Pray in the name of Jesus and command the sickness to go! Then, believe that you receive the answer to your prayer of faith! Say it out loud, Lord I believe that I receive healing for my body in the name of Jesus. According to God’s Word, I believe I’m well and healed. Thank you so much Lord for healing me. Remind the Lord all day long of what you believe. Look past the symptoms to the promise of God’s Word!
Years ago, I was seriously attacked with terrible flu symptoms. My fever was high and I was aching all over. I called my secretary that morning early and cancelled my appointments for the day at work. As I lay in bed, listening to the scriptures on healing from a cassette tape (like I said, years ago!), the Lord spoke to me. He said that if I believed that I had received my healing, then I should get up and act like it. I immediately got up and began walking around my bed praising God for healing me through Jesus sacrifice for me. I walked around and around my bedroom praising God for about 10 to 15 minutes praising God for my healing. Suddenly, I felt God’s power come upon me, and every single symptom left! I was totally overjoyed and astounded! I called my secretary and told her that I was coming to work after all, and to please confirm all my appointments. That day, I learned the importance of acting your faith. I was healed!
Remember that faith takes the place of what God promises until it shows up in physical manifestation! Act your faith and give the Holy Spirit what He needs to manifest God’s healing power in you today!
