Faith

Luke 8:43-48

45 Jesus asked, “Who touched me?”

Everyone denied it, and Peter said, “Master, the people are all around you and crowding in on you.”

46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me, for I knew it when power went out of me.”

🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

In the multitude of people someone touched Jesus and Jesus could tell. It is not out daily, weekly mass routine that touch Jesus, it the daily or weekly attendance of mass with in Faith that we will meet the presence and power of Jesus which infact touch the heart of Jesus.{Hebrews 11:2}

Faith releases power – and Jesus said, “power has gone from me”
We want miracles and blessings – true but it is Faith that will allow the power of God to manifest and work in our lives and the current situations that need his attention.

Faith unlocks blessings – The lady who bled for 12 years need healing badly and she got it!{Luke 8:47} which in turn was a great blessing to her . For in truth her status change immediately! She was known not to mingle with people because of her embarrassing situation but her healing/ breakthrough became a big blessing that changed her status – it changed her life- from rejected to accepted! from forgotten to known and recognized.

Faith in the Lord’s doing will unlock powerful life changing blessing – alleluia!

I tend to think her financial status changed too for she had spent all her money on doctors{Luke 8:43}now at least she could start saving…!

Jesus is not concerned about a multitude of people or gathering as he is concerned with a multitude that believes in him😊.

He is not concerned with the many rosaries we pray rather the many we pray in Faith, believing that his love , power and providence will come through for us! Alleluia!

It is not our attendance of daily, weekly mass service or fellowships and retreats that touch him, rather it is our the attendance of them in Faith that enable us to meet His presence , love and power hence move him to action and we receive our much needed breakthroughs and blessings! 👏🏼👏🏼🙌🏻🙌🏻 Helloooo!

It is not our daily routines in prayer that touch him. No, rather it is our prayer life in Faith that touch Jesus Christ – Hebrews 11:2

Knock the door of his heart – please do – always do – never stop knocking – but knock in Faith and you will be amazed.

Faith is like a brigde
to our wants and needs, to our hearts desire through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amina🙏🏾

Mark 2:2-5 (NIV)

2 They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. 3 Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. 4 Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”

The above ☝🏻scripture reminds me that there are things only God can do. Who can forgive sins, set us free from bondages of sin and give us peace? Only Jesus Christ son of the living God.

👉🏽 There are things only God can do . We might be giving up in prayer or opportunities of seeking God to handle our issues or we might be giving up on our faith in God only to discover that there are things only God can do. There are doors only God can open. And faith in him will get us to those doors. Some can even say that the devil can give us what we want – true and so can Jesus Christ. Jesus can give us both what we want and need however, He focuses on the needs for they are of great importance to God, you and the kingdom of God. Further, that which is of Jesus is a blessing and it is permanent while that which is of the devil is a curse is a problem – A great pain actually {John 10:10b}.

👉🏽The above scripture of the paralytic man and the woman who bled for 12yrs and the raising of Jairus daughter go to show us or remind us of great/immense power of God. Our faith can be attacked and weakned when for some reason we ‘think’ that Jesus is not powerful enough to handle our issue(s). God is very powerful more powerful than our problems infact, more that the power of sin, tempation and pride. God is powerful. Mercy masika reminds us of Jesus power and authority when she sings ” huyu Yesu si hadithi na sio sanamu- mwambie” in her song Huyu Yesu.

👉🏽Remember what the Lord has done for you and your faith will rise. The Lord, God must have done something significant in your lives that leaves an imprint of Himself in your heart. E.g the Israelites, He did many things for them – He parted the Red Sea, provided food from heaven. Which was not bad, white meat(quail) and manna – not bad. He made water come out of a rock! All these were ways for God to reveal himself to his children and build their faith in Him.

I am sure the Lord God has done something(s) that make us stand in awe(utmost respect, reverence of Him). Remember those things and Thank him that He came through that time you needed Him and even now as you pray for him to manifest, he will just don’t give up on your faith rather let it grow to a level that helps you get closer to him gets those blessings (your heart’s desire).

👉🏽Read the scriptures too, see what the Lord God did both in the Old and new testament to increase and build on faith. The Lord God of Moses, Abraham, Sarah, Hannah, Jacob, Esther is the same God who is manifest and present even now.

👉🏽Pray. If and when you feel it’s lacking ask for it in prayer. Make it a prayer intention. Faith is actually a gift of the Spirit – one that we should desire to have. {1Corinthians 12:9}. The scripture says ask and you will receive – Matt 7:7 and futher it written – you don’t have because you do not ask -James 4:2

Finally, the Lord God is good and His love endures forever. Hold on to your Faith. If He said he will, then head will for He is not man to lie.

Again it will be sad to let go when in fact our constant pursuing of him is in the long run 🏃🏼‍♂️ it was growing your spiritual muscle and getting us what we need.

🌸Christ thy kingdom come🌸

God is good. God bless you.
