“She had heard the reports concerning Jesus, and she
came up behind Him in the throng and touched His
For she kept saying, if I only touch His garments, I
shall be restored to health.
Mark 5:27, 28
The light came on as I read this story today. The woman with the
issue of blood needed a miracle. She had seen doctors but
they left her broke. To make things worse her condition had
This is what I want you to see, even when she lost everything,
she kept saying!
She didn’t say it one time, no. She kept speaking what she was
believing for. She kept speaking it over and over!
And notice she didn’t say, “I hope I can be restored…”
She said, “If I only touch His garments, I SHALL be restored!”
There is something that happened as she kept speaking,
her words moved her to go and touch His garment!
Her words provoked her to action!
Faith ALWAYS requires us to move. God doesn’t want us
to do everything but He wants us to demonstrate our faith
in Him. For example, there is something I am trusting God
for and He has shown me a step I need to take as an
expression of my faith in Him.
What is coming out of your mouth today? Are words like can’t,
impossible, I am doomed, coming out?
We need to watch the words we are speaking on a daily basis.
We need to be consistently speaking God’s promises.
Our words have so much power and if we are not careful, we
could talk ourselves out of His promises.
No matter what is happening we need to learn to speak
life. The woman lost everything but she still allowed
faith to speak.
We need to be like the woman who kept speaking what she
was believing God to do. She didn’t speak it once off but
continuously! She kept saying……
Let us speak what we want God to do in our lives no matter
what. There is power in the words we speak…..
