Jesus Said

Re:Verse passage – Matthew 9:20-22 (day four)

There is not one instance in Scripture when Jesus said for something to happen and it didn’t happen.  Whether it was calming a storm, sending out a demon, or healing a sick person, whatever Jesus commanded…happened!  His sovereignty and His power were evident over the physical world and the spiritual world.  The disciples were constantly amazed at His demonstrated authority.  Now, in our passage this week, we see that power flows out of Jesus in response to faith on the part of this woman.  The world had never seen someone like Jesus.

Throughout Scripture we have promises where God (aka Jesus) tells us that He will do something, or heal something, or make something to happen.  Often, the requirement for us is to only believe.  If we have this full and complete message of Scripture that tells us that God will work in our lives, can we believe Him?  Can we believe that He has the power to do it and that He will do it when He says so?  The character qualities of faithfulness, truthfulness, immutability, compassion, and authority find their source in the character of God.  They are some of our greatest gifts!
