Faith is one of the virtues and powers people in God's kingdom enjoy. Faith is a power and a virtue kingdom citizens are meant to use here on earth. True faith is found in God's kingdom and should be used here on earth.
Faith is so vital to our spiritual walk for without it God is not pleased. Hebrews 11:6 Faith is also necessary for the manifestatons we wish to receive from God. Faith is needed to touch God. Mark 5:25-34
Your faith can touch God! Faith has to be processed in the heart. Hebrews 4:2 True faith comes about from meditation on the things of the kingdom - the word of God. Romans 10:17
The woman with the issue of blood demonstrated faith. She became whole through faith in Jesus Christ. She received from Jesus. She touched Jesus. She made a withdrawal from the power/virtue of Jesus by faith. Many people were touching Jesus Christ but her touch was different. It was the touch of faith.
Faith is necessary to make a difference. Using her faith made a difference in her life. It made her whole! Faith can make you well in all areas of your life. There are things we can learn from the woman with the issue of blood with regards to faith.
You have to wonder :- What made her touch different to the touch of the many people around Jesus? Why did her touch get the attention of Jesus? Why did her own touch attract a miracle and many others touching Jesus didn't?
1. She processed faith in her heart. Matthew 9:21 2. She gave her faith a specific goal. Matthew 9:21 3. She acted on her faith. Matthew 9:20
