Scriptures: Mark 5: 25-34
There is a concept that many believe in, it’s called fate: "the unalterable course of destiny, the development of events beyond a person’s control." People say things like: “it’s destined to happen.”
What you are believing is, “I am a victim of circumstances that cannot be altered.”
We read in the Bible about a woman with a bleeding disorder for 12 years. She had suffered physically, emotionally, mentally, financially and from society.
But she determined that this plague was not her fate. Through faith (taking a risk) in Jesus she broke through many barriers and she experienced a complete restoration of health and entered a new level faith.
Its time to challenge the concept of fate: there 3 simple acts of faith that can alter the course of your destiny.
1) Wholeness and healing begins with hearing.
She heard about Jesus and she heard about the possibility, the healing, the barriers that were being broken down and the message of hope He was speaking. "Faith cometh by hearing, hearing the Word of God."
2. You must go where Jesus is: She came to Jesus and she responded to what she heard and pushed her way through the crowd. She believed that Jesus could alter her situation and that she would no longer be bound by circumstance, culture, where she came from, society and tradition.
3. Faith is the hand that touched God. She touched Jesus and a fatalistic barrier was broken. When you touch Jesus a surge of His power will wash over you.
