Speak Your Faith Internally

Mark 5:21- 42
When Jesus had again crossed over by boat to the other side of the lake,a large crowd gathered around him while he was by the lake.22 Then one of the synagogue leaders, named Jairus, came, and when he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet. 23 He pleaded earnestly with him, “My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and live.” 24 So 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 realised 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.”
35 While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher anymore?”
36 Overhearing[a] what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”
37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James.38 When they came to the home of the synagogue leader, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly. 39 He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.”40 But they laughed at him.
After he put them all out, he took the child’s father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was.

Here we see two miracles performed by Jesus. We understand that Jesus has his own perspective for miracles and spiritual laws. The main spiritual concept to understand is that even if our miracles  are delayed God  will always  give you his miracle . 

The two characters  in the above portion show two types of faith and how they receive the  miracle they need. The lady or women symbolises the Old Testament Law and customs whilst the daughter of Jairus shows  the New Testament  grace. 

The lady with the bleeding condition is not allowed  to even  enter the synagogue as per  the customs and the young girl is the  daughter of  a church  leader. So we see no matter what the  situation in our life Jesus will always  heal and deliver. We   have to have radical faith  and we will receive our miracle. 

The lady  was healed  in public whilst the young girl was healed in her home privately or secretly. All we need  to receive our miracle is to develop a radical  or uncommon faith. 

The woman got her healing because  of her strong faith but the young girl got hers from  the faith of her parents.  If we have strong  faith just pray and get the healing by yourself but if someone is bedridden or sick we  can pray and receive the healing  for  them. 

The woman may have been inside for approximately 12 years but the moment she realised  Jesus was walking outside  she ran and touched his cloak to receive her healing.

The three basic emotional needs of every man are
  • Acceptance 
  • Affection 
  • Appreciation 
When the lady ran to Jesus, he accepted  her when in her entire life no one did.
The gesture of Jesus allowing the lady to touch the hem of his cloak shows his affection towards her.
After Jesus healed he appreciated her on her strong faith in him that healed her
If we feel emotionally dry, just approach  Jesus. He will accept you the way you are
Never feel worthless or neglected for Jesus  values you alot. Thirst for deliverance  in any situation  or health  condition and Jesus  will accept  you and deliver  you.

Mathew 9:20
Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak
12 for she said to herself, “If I can just touch His robe, I’ll be made well!” -  

Here we can see the lady is speaking  to herself to see Jesus and get healed. She is meditating on that all the  time. Similarly we all should speak our faith to us Internally and confess it repeatedly . Whenever we speak  to ourselves internally, confessing  faith will release  a power within us and deliver us . This will strengthen us and heal us in every needed situation or condition  you may be in.
