“And He said unto her; Daughter, thy faith has made thee whole, go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.” Mark 5:34 (KJV)

One of the things that make Christianity interesting is the fact that we walk by faith. The book of 2 Corinthians 5:7 says, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” In the fifth chapter of Mark’s gospel, we see interesting stories of people who received outstanding miracles by faith. Jesus was on His way to Jairus’s house because Jairus had invited him to come and lay hands on his daughter who was sick. Jesus went with him because when you call upon Him, He will answer. On their way, the woman who had the issue of blood for 12 years took her miracle.

You see, some people know how to take their miracles and some expect God to come to their house before they can get anything. For some people, until mantles are cast on their heads, there can be no healing. But I love this woman; without any prayer nor any oil, just a touch of His garments and the issue was settled. The scripture says in Mark 5:27-29: “When she had heard of Jesus, she came in the press behind, and touched his garment. For she said, “If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole”. And straightway, the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague” (KJV).

In my years of ministry, I have heard testimonies of people who said they were going through some challenges and purposed in their heart that once they come to church everything will be alright? They came into the church and under the anointing, everything was sorted out. Yet some sit in church, under the same anointing, it is almost like you would take the Bible and put into it into their head before they will receive anything.

Beloved, all things are possible to him that believes. Whatever you are trusting God for, Jesus has already paid for it. Receive it by faith.
