"Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.”Matthew 7:7, AMPC

In Mark chapter five, there was a woman who had been sick for twelve years. The doctors gave up on her. But, she heard that Jesus was passing through the town. She felt this something deep insider he , “This is your season. This is your time to get well.” In the natural, when she saw all the people around Jesus, she might have thought, “I will never get to Him. It’s so crowded and I’m weak.” She could have missed her season. But instead of dwelling on those negative thoughts, instead of looking at her situation, she started reminding herself, “If I can just get to Jesus, I will be whole and will be made New.” She made the choice to turn her thoughts in the right direction and was empowered to take the step of faith. She pressed through the crowd until she got just close enough to touch the edge of Jesus’ robe. Instantly, she was made whole.

Jesus said in Mark 5:34, “Daughter, your faith has made you well.” Notice it’s our faith that activates God’s power. We have to press through our thoughts, press through our circumstances, and press through the crowd and obstacles until we touch Him. Amen
