When you are in faith there is nothing too late. In the case of Lazarus, men may say it was too late but God did not say so. Your faith will bring God on the scene, on time. Lazarus was dead four days and Martha told Jesus that the body was stinking already, He replied saying didn’t I tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God. They decided to believe and they saw the glory of God.
When you have a word from God, you already have more than a Doctor’s word, more than a lawyer’s word, more than the Judge’s word, more than the Bankers word, more than the Governor’s word, we have more than the President’s word, we have God’s word. Faith takes you into a realm that crosses the lines where the doors are shut to the experience of man, expertise of man and abilities of man. There is a realm like that and faith takes us there. You don’t need a big faith to get a big miracle; all you need is a little faith in a big God to get a big miracle.
LESSONS FROM THE WOMAN WITH THE ISSUE OF BLOOD
1. Long term problems bow to the power of faith.
The longer a problem dwells in the life of somebody without solution, the more it reduces every natural resource. The only thing that can rise up effectively against long term problems is the power of faith.
2. The duration of the problem does not determine the duration of the solution with God.
One of the tendencies we have as men when we are dealing with a long term problem that refuses to respond to natural solutions is to think that because a problem has lasted long, it will take God that long to solve it. Jesus said, “your faith,” that means everyone that has faith today can have this same experience. You have no right to accept that a case is hopeless. There are genuinely hopeless cases but once faith gets on the scene, the matter is no more hopeless and you as a child of God must know what you have.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to exercise my little faith in my big God on every situation and challenge that life throws at me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
