David wrote in a psalm that the Lord “counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name” (Psalm 147:4). Think of it: David is telling us, “When you’re in pain, stop and look up. You’ll realize, ‘If God can do this, He certainly can meet my need.’” I agree. If in your pain you focus on the majesty of God, you will receive more than any answer a preacher could give you.
You may think God has failed you because He hasn’t answered. I tell you, your miracle word is on the way. He is at work on your deliverance right now and has been since the moment you first prayed. He has promised never to forsake you. The seas may roar, the mountains may fall into the sea, and everything that can be shaken will be. But He cannot be shaken, and neither can His purposes for His Church.
When you touch Jesus — when you touch the hem of His garment — you receive His power. When the bleeding woman touched Him, we are told that “power had gone out of him” (Mark 5:30). Some versions use the word “virtue” here, which means “power.” This signifies power over all uncleanness, sin and death.
Remember, He is the God who made all things — including you and me. If that God could create a clean heart in David, a murderer and adulterer, He can do the same in you. He can turn your life around.
Dear saint, Jesus is present with you right now in your battle. You can press in and touch Him as surely as the bleeding woman did. You can experience the resurrecting, healing power of Christ, no matter what you are going through. He is walking beside you through it and He has a plan to bring you out of death and into life. Fear not — only believe!
