He has RISEN! Jesus conquered every penalty associated with death. That means all the lack in your life, all the sickness and diseases, all the torment that you’ve ever suffered was defeated the day that Jesus rose from the dead. Now that you know what Jesus did for you because He loves you, what are you doing about it?
Some people are still wallowing in their circumstances because they refuse to believe that what God did belongs to them. Others make a demand on the promises of God and receive the blessings associated with being delivered from the penalties of the curse. What do you believe?
And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?” “You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’” Matthew 5:25-31 NIV
For twelve years this woman was being programmed with negative reports from the doctors that there was no remedy for her ailment. She spent all that she had trying to get her healing on her own with her resources but was not successful. For twelve years she was being fed negative reports from all her friends and family; every negative report that she heard were all leading towards death until that day that she heard about Jesus. How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him (Acts 10:38 NIV). Then she purposed in her heart to make a demand upon the power of God to heal her. She said: “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” Then she acted upon her belief and touched Jesus and immediately received her healing.
Many people were touching Jesus but only one made a demand on His promises. Look for the answers you need to solve your problems through your spiritual eyes and when you see them, make a demand on the power of God and receive them. You can have a million dollars in the bank but if you don’t go and make a withdrawal, your bills won’t get paid. Make a demand on what Jesus died on the cross to give you today and receive it. Happy Easter!
