Luke 8:48 (NKJV) “And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
The woman with the issue of blood has tried everything reasonable by human standard, to secure her healing with no result. The physicians have collected her money until she was left with nothing to spend on her health.
So, she settled in her heart to trust God for her healing. She settled for the word of God and believed that it is only God, who can handle what no man can handle. Having been convinced by the word of God, she started confessing what she believed.
She believed, that when she touches the border of Jesus’ garment, she will be healed. She kept confessing it, though her condition was not getting any better, she maintained her confession. One day, when she heard Jesus came to town, she went after Him, to act on what she believed.
Faith is more than confession. Confession is verbalizing what you believe; faith is acting on what you believe. As powerful as confession is, it does not produce any result, until it is followed up with action. Confession prepares you for action and acting on what you believe releases your expected miracle.
Until your confession is backed up with the corresponding action, your believing remains impotent. Don’t stay at just confessing the word of God, act on the word of God. The woman with the issue of blood did not stay at confessing, she went further by acting on what she believes.
What Jesus called her faith, was her action, not her confession. It is a progressive combination of believing, confessing, and acting on the word you believe, that leads to the manifestation of those things you are expecting.
You have confessed enough, it is time to step out in faith. The power for your miracle is waiting to go into operation, as you take the action of faith. This week is the week of manifestation, and faith is the key. Step out and do what you have always seen yourself doing.
How long should we confess the word before we act on the word?
Father, let there be uncommon manifestation and performance of Your word in my life this year, in Jesus’ name.
