“But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.” – Matthew 9:22 (KJV)
The bible tells the story of the woman with the issue of blood, who despite her condition and the limitations that the law put against her, saw grace, and decided to take her healing. According to the law, she was not supposed to be found amongst people because the law regarded her as unclean, and unworthy. But when grace appeared, her faith was awakened. That was why she said in Matthew 9:21: “For she said to herself, if only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well” (KJV). While the crowd gathered and pushed in excitement, she saw beyond the excitement. She saw grace manifested and believed in the healing that this grace had provided. She believed that all she had to do was contact grace. And she will be made whole.
Beloved, everything you need to prosper is already available to you. But you must lay hold on it by faith in order for it to manifest. Within your sphere of influence declare that your work will grow from glory to glory, regardless of what the enemy is trying to show you. Declare the word of God boldly as written in Proverbs 4:18: “But path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more, unto the perfect day”, and receive by faith, the prosperity that is already assured you in Christ.
Refuse every lie of the enemy. Remember that the devil is your adversary and not your adviser. When he tries to tell you that you are not qualified to partake of the riches of grace, remind him that it is God that justifies the ungodly. Therefore, you are qualified. Christ has paid for it all. Your part is to take it! I know this is the part a lot of people struggle with. But if you have a good understanding of this, you will put the enemy on the run.
