Luke 13:12-13 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
Although it is said that seeing is believing, you do not need to see things happening for you to believe that the word of God concerning your life will come to pass. Even when it seems like nothing is happening, choose to believe and touch God with your faith; that was the secret to Abraham’s greatness. It was also the same thing the woman with the spirit of infirmity did In Luke 13 that caused her to get her breakthrough after living with her condition for 18 years. When Jesus saw her in the synagogue He called her to Him and said “woman thou art loosed”. Notice that Jesus never said woman thou will be loosed, instead He spoke in the past tense as if it was already done. Importantly, at that point the woman did not see anything happening, so she could have chosen to ridicule the words of Jesus and lose out on her miracle, instead she chose to believe and got her victory. To get your victory, you too will need to believe.
Jesus will touch us when we touch him by faith. Look at what happened after he said woman thou art loosed and the woman chose to believe. The scripture said that “Jesus laid hands on her and immediately she was made straight”. The woman touched Jesus with her faith and in response Jesus touched her, and her situation changed. It is not always going to be the same time the word of God goes out that you will see something happening, but if you touch Him by faith something will happen.
Life Application: Touch God with your faith by choosing to believe even when it seems like nothing is happening.
Prayer: Lord, I trust you and believe that you are able to do all things. I raise my faith in expectation of all that you will do. In Jesus’ name, amen.
