In Matthew 15:22 we read that a woman from Canaan cried to Jesus, “saying, have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and besought him saying, send her away; for she crieth after us. But He answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, Help me. But He answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord; yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her O woman, great is thy faith; be it unto thee even as thous wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.’This woman had faith – and Jesus told her she had great faith. I am reminded of the scripture in Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].”In Mark 5:27 -30 the woman with the issue of blood also had great faith. In verse 27 it says that “She had heard the reports concerning Jesus, and she came up behind Him in the throng and touched His garment. For she kept saying, If I only touch His garments I shall be restored to health. And immediately her flow of blood was dried up at the source, and [suddenly] she felt in her body that she was healed of her [distressing] ailment. And Jesus, recognizing in Himself that the power proceeding from Him had gone forth, turned around immediately in the crowd and said, Who touched My clothes?” Then skip down to verse 34 and it reads “And He said to her, Daughter, your faith (your trust and confidence in Me, springing from faith in God) has restored you to health. Go in (into) peace and be continually healed and freed from your [distressing bodily] disease.”Here is a woman who was desperate and has faith in God – gets healed from a disease when Jesus was on His way to Jairus’s house.In verse 23 we see that Jairus also had faith. It reads “And Begged Him earnestly, saying, My Little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, so that she may be healed and live.” However Jairus got some bad news right after the woman who had the issue of blood for 12 years got healed. Verse 35 says that “While He was still speaking, there came some from the ruler’s house, who said [to Jairus], Your daughter has died, Why Bother and distress the Teacher any further?” “Overhearing but ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, Do not be seize with alarm and struck with fear, only keep on believing.”We need to keep on believing, having faith in Gods goodness and power as “we meet the conditions in Gods Word, then whatever we declare it will be done.” As it is written in Matthew 17:20 “For assuredly, I say unto you, If you have faith as a mustard seed you will say to this mountain, move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”These scriptures show us how important it is to have faith in God for our healing, provision or whatever we may need. Jesus gave us His all, He poured out His life for us so that we can live. In John 10:10 it reads “the thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).”
