Spiritual Warfare: 'Acts of Faith Are Weapons of Freedom'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, February 16, 2022

She had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind him through the crowd and touched his robe. For she thought to herself, ‘If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.’
— Mark 5:27-28 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, help me to deduce new and wonderful truths as I read, study, and internalize the stories and parables in Your Holy Scriptures. Thank you for this woman with an issue of blood who did just that although there was no command or example or promise that this small act of faith would be rewarded with healing. That’s exactly what You did for her — in spite of the fact that she was disobedient by not announcing she was unclean and yelling for others to stay away, as she was supposed to have been doing. Help me to have the faith to do similar acts of faith throughout my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
