Event:  Pastors Notes Part 9
Date:  Mon, July 06, 2020 (Recurs Weekly)
Details:  Pressing In: Mark 5:24-34
There is a beautiful theme followed by Mark and Luke, in the same accounts - Christ is Supreme over Death, Diseases, Demons and Nature. Jesus Christ is Lord of Lords and King of kings. We can trust Him with our past, present and future. We can trust Him with our body, our soul and our spirit. We can trust Him with all of our problems and difficulties, for ourselves and for others. He is the only One who can "fix" all of our problems. The way He solves our problems may not be what we want. But it will be His best for us. A good example is Paul and the thorn in the flesh - 2 Chorintians 12:1-10. The bottom line is that He will always help us and see us through and deliver us from all evil. Our story illustrates this truth.
1. The Problem
This woman has had an incurable illness, which has left her broke after twelve years and made her condition worse. She sought human help and cure but never found it, except in Christ. Often times we exhaust human remedies before we seek divine solution and help. ( Ps. 121:1-2 ) We need to be on our back to cause us to look up at God. When this woman came to her wits end, then she sought His help.
2. The Obstacle
God is interested in solving people's problems.
In God's providence, this woman learned the there was Someone who did what no one else could do. Now she had hope. But before she could experience a healing, there was an obstacle in the way - a large crowd - that stood in her way. Many had come to see Jesus, for different reasons. Could she get close enough to to Him, to get help? She refused to go home empty-handed, without a cure.
3. The Determination
This woman saw the opportunity of a lifetime, to get well and was determined to get her healing. She needed only to believe. " If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed." She didn't think it could happen, she was sure that it would happened.( Mt. 21:21-22; Heb. 11:6 ) Genuine faith always touches God and causes Him to touch us. The moment faith is released, something happens. God's power, provisions, peace, protection are ours because we believe. Faith in Christ and His Word always works. ( Hebrews 11 ) God rewards faith. " Daughter, your faith has healed you." Like. 8:48
Faith in God brings about the impossible!
What miracle are you believing God for....... salvation, healing, deliverance, resources? Press in with your faith, inspite of the obstacles; stay resolute, overcome the barriers and then the miracle will occur.
