Your Faith Will Make You Whole
When life’s situations look desperate and you’ve done all you know to do, your faith can make you whole.
Your faith can change the most critical circumstances and quite intense demands.
Faith has made me whole. (Mark 5:34).
“Can God provide you with a brand new home, when you’ve been turned down 9 times by bankers?”
“Can an alcoholic whose doctors have sent him home to die be delivered?”
“Can a baby who has been a vegetable for years, walk, run, play, and learn?”
“Yes, I’ve seen these miracles and many others. Oh, I believe God can do anything!”
Yet, they don’t know how to ask Him to help them in their lives. Some respond by feelings to Him. You do not contact God with your feelings; you contact Him with your faith, which is from your heart.
Faith always pleases God. That is the only way man can please Him. Real faith sees what is not revealed to the senses, according to the apostle Paul (Hebrews 11:1).
Real faith is based only on the character of God who backs up every one of His promises (2 Timothy 2:13).

Jesus washing our feet, we are to wash others feet to be apart of Jesus. We are to serve others us not be served.
Real faith is always in the present – RIGHT NOW! (Mark 10:47).
“Have mercy on me, RIGHT NOW!”
Real faith reaches out to God, it does not wait for him. Many times we wait for God to touch us, when God is waiting for us to reach out to Him (James 4:8).
Unless you reach out to God and act on what you want you are not using faith (James 2:18).
Reaching out to God is an act of faith that brings about miraculous results. One day, Jesus was totally surrounded by people who were trying to touch Him as they pressed in on Him from every side.
But only one woman caused Him to stop and ask;
“Who touched my clothes?” (Mark 5:30).
“Why, only this woman.”
Because she had touched Him with her faith.
She reached out against impossible odds, people were pressing in around Him so tightly that they nearly suffocated Him, yet, unmindful of her own safety, she pushed and shoved her way ever closer until she could reach through the tangle of legs and touched the hem of His robe.
As she pressed her way through the crowd, she said over and over to herself;
“If I may touch His clothes, I shall be whole” (Mark 5:27).
She did more than just physically touch Jesus’ garments; her words and actions released her faith and decreed her miracle – Now!
“They faith hath made thee whole” (Mark 5:34).
Some people confuse faith with other things. They often confuse faith with hope, thinking that someday if they wait long enough, they will get what they want. Hope happily anticipates good. Faith is firmly convinced of good, because of what God’s word says. I know, I’ve got the answer even though
I don’t see it yet. Hope that is deferred makes the heart sick (Proverbs 13:12).
That’s because hope allows you to build up great fantasies and believe that you’re going to get something without acting on your faith/belief.
Faith acts, it says; “I believe it, so I’ll do something about it.” Faith works, but only faith in God.
People have more faith in their money, possessions, man, or even in faith itself, than they have in God.
Faith that is based on anything but God is only make believe. It is not true faith, and it cannot please God. (Mark 5:26).
Faith continually trusts, believes and walks with God, regardless of circumstances.
Jesus said something very unusual to this woman;
“Go in peace, and be continually healed and free from your distressing bodily disease” (Mark 5:34).
Believing - The Lord was warning her not to let doubt and unbelief destroy her faith. Some people do. They do not stay continually healed, blessed, or successful.
Your faith in God himself and in what He says makes you whole. When you touch god with your faith, He will meet all your needs, spiritually, physically, and financially.
“According to your faith be it unto you.” (Matthew 9:29).
You have all the faith you need to reach out to God; He gave it to you.
But you can strengthen your faith by reading, and meditating, on the word of God, allowing it to replace and unbelief and doubt that could hinder Jesus’ answering your faith (Matthew 13:58).
This type will bring miraculous results, for Jesus is just concerned today with your needs as He was with needs of Bartimaeus and the woman in the crowd.
He is still blessing, prospering, delivering, and healing all those who touch Him with their faith. In fact, He said if you would have faith and not doubt that you could have whatever you desire (Mark 11:23-24).
“What are your desires?” Reach out in faith – it pleases Him when you do.
“Do you have a dream, a vision in your heart of something you hoped to accomplish; or a dream of a special life, but it seemed so impossible, and so long coming, that you gave up?”
