The power of determination

She had done all that could be done, and… nothing.

Twelve years of chronic hemorrhage seemed like an eternity.

Doctors, medicines and alternative treatments had consumed all her money, and… nothing.

Neither family, neighbors nor friends had the power to help her.

Words of Hope and comfort did no good.
But someone told her about Jesus.
Her strength recovered; her faith was reborn and she acted in search of an unknown Power.

The barriers of her debilitating condition and the difficulties of the journey did not stop her from reaching Jesus.
The crowd of people around Jesus did not make her give up.
She had such a conviction that—whether or not her problem was publicly exposed—nothing was going to stop her from receiving a miracle.

She had already determined: “If I only touch the hem of His garment, I will be healed.”

And it happened!
…just like she had determined.

The Spirit of God is looking for people who are determined, convicted, bold, daring, brave, and courageous—people through whom He can manifest His greatness, that have faith independent of the difficulties.

With every miracle there is a war between our personal convictions and the circumstances.
Those who believe in the promises insist with the One that made the promises.

Fight with the weapons of faith and conquer…

For the weapons of our warfare are not human weapons, but are made powerful by God for tearing down strongholds. We tear down arguments…  2 Corinthians 10:4.

Those who don’t believe… try, experiment, gamble, or count on luck.
