I Would Definitely Have Been A Cloak Toucher

And wherever he went – into villages, towns or countryside – they placed the sick in the marketplaces. They begged him to let them touch even the edge of his cloak, and all who touched him were healed. Mark 6:56
I love this passage.  But not just this passage.  I love all of the scriptures where it talks about someone touching Jesus’ clothing to get healed. Can you even imagine? I mean, seriously, y’all. You can be healed from any disease or infirmity just by touching what the Son of God was wearing. You are chronically ill with a disease that no physician can diagnose, let alone cure and then you rub up against the Savior of the world and BAM! You’re healed. Let me encourage you with this today: The same power that conquered the grave lives in you and me. This power gives us everything we need for life and godliness as we live in this world to bring Him glory. Regardless of how the power of God is displayed in our lives, whether or not cancer is taken from our bodies or if we can walk again after a tragic accident, make no mistake about it…we have access to it as Christ Followers. I am a fairly healthy individual and by that I mean that I don’t have to go to the doctor often. However, I have two particular issues that I wish would just go away: High cholesterol and food addiction. After trying many routes in the last decade, my body has only responded to a prescription that has literally chopped my cholesterol levels in half. I don’t really want to take it but I also don’t want to follow in the footsteps of my grandparents and die prematurely from a heart attack leaving behind two devastated, little boys. So I take the medicine. And I would love it if I never had to eat again. I just wish food didn’t taste so good. But it does taste good and I like it and I sometimes overdo it and don’t stick to my plan and justify myself into a negative eating pattern. While these two areas of my life have been prayed and fasted over, they are issues I deal with. I don’t have a say as to where God will use His healing powers in my life, but I know He is still very capable. What I do know is that I will keep praying and believing that He will do what He says He will do even if it’s not according to what I think should happen. Let’s pray for one another today. In what area(s) do you need healing?

  1. I’m all over praying for you today, sister. Thanks for the opportunity. Healing areas for me? Continued revival of my heart toward my husband and still struggling with aspects/symptoms of PTSD. Desperately in want of healing for both. Thanks, friend. Love to you.

  2. I keep getting sooo many confirmations that Jesus is going to heal me fully … just when I read this blog post now I got “waves” and this morning praying to God with my husband and on and on I could give examples that He keeps reinforcing that I will be fully restored because of what Jesus has done for me and of who God is (well He has actually already fully restored me -now just standing on His Word & waiting on the physical manifestation of this healing)….He has already brought restoration to my marriage and He is freeing and clearing my mind from much distress and now I stand on who He is, that my physical body will be restored also…I know that I have no right to life in who I am…but because of who He is all the promises of God almighty are open to me, my family & all who trust in Jesus…I am sooo thankful for my precious Lord Jesus<3<3<3 and to all the people He has and will have in my life. All glory & honour to God almighty 🙂

  3. Cindy….. two words: complete surrender.

    That’s where I was last year when God delivered me from Fibromyalgia and saved my marriage. I prayed. I had faith. I just wasn’t letting everything go. Until the night I completely surrendered and submitted myself to God. Seeing my heart God knew I was ready. It was a mind blowing night honestly. I’m still blown away just thinking about it.

  4. Praying for you today……and for me…..oh the dreaded thought of being transparent and honest…..YUCK, but so glad God led me to your blog this morning. In 4 weeks or less, I am going to give birth to a beautiful baby girl…..I am trying so hard not to worry about what my body is going to look like afterwards…..the stretch marks and loose flabby skin are beauty marks…..the extra dimples on my thighs are the fingerprints of God. I keep telling myself this so that no matter what…..I am beautiful in the eyes of my heavenly father. 🙂 When honestly…..I can’t wait to diet and exercise as hard as I can to get the extra weight off……but I am going to have a precious baby to feed… I pray for the Holy Spirit to continue instilling these positive thoughts in my soul……..

    Thank you for allowing me to share……
