Do Something

Posted by on

One of my favorite stories in the Bible comes from Matthew 9 (Also Mark 5 and Luke 8). Jesus is going from town to town performing miracles and preaching the good news. As Jesus was making his way through one of the towns, the crowds that have gathered around him become so massive that they almost crush him and the disciples. All of the sudden, a woman who had suffered her entire life got behind Jesus and touched the edge of his cloak. Immediately she was healed of her problems and Jesus turned around looking for her. When she presented herself, He said “Take heart, daughter, your faith has healed you” (Matthew 9:22).

I love this story. Everyone in that crowd needed help from Jesus in some way. But in the story, only one person actually acts and does something about it. She actually had the faith to believe that just by touching the clothes on Jesus’ back, she would be healed. Then one of the most profound verses follows her act. JESUS TURNED AROUND.
So many Christians spend their entire lives praying for answers or help. Many times God answers these prayers. But sometimes, you have to act! Sometimes you have to step out in faith and do something to get the clarity or help you’re seeking.
