MATTHEW 9 – FAITH THAT HEALS

“Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind Him and touched The Edge of His Cloak. She said to herself, “If I only touch His Cloak, I will be healed.”
Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” He said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.” Matthew 9:20-22

In Matthew 9, a woman who had been subject to bleeding gave us a good example of faith. This woman was ill for 12 years, which means that she had probably tried several kinds of treatment that failed. Despite that, despite her long illness, she had faith that The Lord Jesus could heal her. Other people asking for healing from The Lord Jesus were expecting Him to heal them by His Touch or His Word. However, the faith of that woman led her to believe that she could be healed just by touching The Edge of The Lord Jesus’s Cloak. And indeed, she was healed thanks to her faith.
We should take her as an example and keep faith in all circumstances because it is through our faith that The Lord Jesus acts.

“According to your faith let it be done to you” Matthew 9:29
