*TOPIC: MIRACLE INCUBATION*
*TEXT: Mark 5:27-29*
_When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering._ NIV
Faith and miracle cannot be separated. Where there is no faith in the supernatural abilities of God which is in us, then we will be natural. Trust is good but faith is the substance of what you trust God for and already formed in your Spirit. The knowledge of God is important in generating faith.
The woman with the issue of blood heard about Jesus as a healer. Some have heard about Jesus as the controversial preacher and that was what they built their unbelief on. Some saw him as an arrogant preacher, new age move, miracle merchant, friend of sinners, law breaker etc. What they hear and receive is what forms their belief system. No one can rise beyond the walls of his belief system. That is why we must be careful of what we hear and believe. What we hear and receive becomes our persuasion and when fully certain become the substance of faith. The woman with the issue of the blood heard about Jesus healing the sick and some have been healed by that same method, she believed she will experience the same and pushed her way through. The thought was the generation and incubation of this substance inside her.
When such substance is forming, be careful of letting it get dissipated through challenges or discouragement. Devil is a master in this. He can measure your faith, it is a substance, there is spiritual faith scale upon which all believers are weighed in heaven and hell. The devil fears those with great faith, they will knock him out of the earth. Those who are less concerned about the earth are ignorant about the real plan of God. Our faith must be full to possess the earth on God’s behalf. How much truth have you heard and what is the level of your persuasion? Basic truth, prophecies and promises are three pillars to generate high faith magnitude in your spirit. Take your instruction books, read all prophecies about you, see them being fulfilled without any limitation, then start drawing out the plans, put voice activation through authoritative prayer and believe you have receiveed( Mark 11:23)
Open my eyes so that I might see your wondrous promises as real as they are.
