And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace. Your suffering is over.”
-Mark 5:34 NLT
Mark 5 demonstrates Jesus’ power to heal. It records three of Jesus’ healings. In Mark 5:1-20, Jesus heals a demon possessed man. He cast the demons out of the man and sent them into a herd of pigs. The man was profoundly grateful for what Jesus did, and many were amazed by the man’s testimony.
Second, in Mark 5:21-34, Jesus healed a woman who suffered from a bleeding disorder for twelve years. With no money left to be treated by doctors and her condition worsening, she thought, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.” When she touched the hem of His garment, power went through Jesus, and the woman was healed!
Thirdly, in Mark 5:35-43, Jesus restored a twelve-year-old girl to life. Upon entering her home, Jesus asked, “Why all this commotion and weeping? The child isn’t dead; she’s only asleep.” Holding her little hand, Jesus said, “Talitha koum,” which means, “Little girl get up!” Immediately, she stood up and walked around!
No matter what you or a loved one is facing, the Healer, who cured the above people continues to perform miracles of healing. There’s no demon on earth that the name of Jesus can’t cast out. There’s no disorder or comatose state, which faith in Christ can’t reinstate. It starts with faith and transpires through Christ’s healing powers.
Ask God to increase your faith in believing that Jesus’ healing touch and power still exists today.
Pray that through the power of the Holy Spirit God would use you as a vessel to bring healing into someone else’s life.
