HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT JESUS?

Mark 5:25 And there was a woman in the crowd who had a hemorrhage for twelve years. She had suffered a great deal from many doctors through the years and had spent everything she had to pay them,but she had gotten no better.In fact,she was worse.

Can you imagine what this lady must have  went through!! It had to be bad,not only her scent but her strength. I mean she was tapped out and in worse shape,the doctors could not help her. Now she’s sick and broke.And back then she was not even suppose to be in public in her condition.But I tell ya when things get bad enough you’ll try almost anything,but thank God someone was talking about Jesus (vs 27) She had heard about Jesus.Not only did she hear,but she believed and started moving toward him!  She came up behind him through the crowd and touched the hem of his garment. Now she had to “get down” to touch Jesus,for the hem is always at the bottom of garments. This woman was desperate and she was going to get the help she needed.After all nothing else was working!!!

How about you? Where are you now? Are you ready to “get down”? If you will humble yourself and pray,and be real with Jesus you will hear from him.For after all God has given us his best,his only Son.So surely he will not hold back the help you need,also remember God knows your real needs. And keep in mind her great results (vs34)  And he said to her,”Daughter your faith has made you well.Go in peace.You have been healed”.

For without faith it’s impossible to please God,or touch him.And if you haven’t gotten your answer “yet” keep believing .

In The Garden

Even in beautiful places there can be so much sadness . We don’t have a clue as to how crushed Jesus was doing this time .

Matthew 26:38-39 NKJV

Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.” He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.1-cd

But this does let us know that Jesus understands when we are in beautiful places and full of darkness . When we feel sad ,confused ,alone and full of doubt and fear we can look to Him who knows and cares for us. For he felt crushed beyond belief and God sustained him. Even though we have the word of God to hold onto there are times when it seems as if we cannot go another step ! Once again we must remind ourselves to look to Him for he did say …
Acts 14:22 NKJV

strengthening the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying, “We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God.”

2 Timothy 3:12( NKJV )Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

Hebrews 2:17-18 NKJV

Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.

Sometimes our trials and tribulations come at us so fast it makes us tremble,but God has and always will bring us through. I am so glad that Jesus understands when we have many sad times in beautiful places!
