By Speaking Words of Faith
Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge,
But he who hates correction is stupid.
For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain,
‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’
and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things
he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him,
he fell at His feet and begged Him earnestly, saying,
“My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her,
that she may be healed, and she will live.”
So Jesus went with him, and a great multitude followed Him and thronged Him.
Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, and had suffered many things from
many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. When
she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. For she said,
“If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”
Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed
of the affliction. And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned
around in the crowd and said,
“Who touched My clothes?”
But His disciples said to Him,
“You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”
And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. But the woman, fearing and trembling,
knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
And He said to her,
“Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said,
“Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”
As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue,
“Do not be afraid; only believe.”
And He permitted no one to follow Him except Peter, James, and John the brother of James. Then
He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and those who wept and
wailed loudly. When He came in, He said to them,
“Why make this commotion and weep? The child is not dead, but sleeping.”
And they ridiculed Him. But when He had put them all outside, He took the father and the mother
of the child, and those who were with Him, and entered where the child was lying. Then He took
the child by the hand, and said to her,
“Talitha, cumi,”which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.”
Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome
with great amazement.
Overlaps with the point, "By Believing The Word for Yourself." When you believe The Word for
yourself, you will automatically speak words of faith. It involves more than just saying,
“I’m healed,” a couple of times.
You have to dedicate yourself—your time and efforts—to receiving the very best God
has to offer. Both Jairus and the woman with the issue of blood spoke the desired end result.
They spoke faith-filled word.
