“…And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him” Hebrews 11:6.
Ever been in a place where it seemed like the heavens were closed over you like a brass sheet? It seems that you can’t get an answer or breakthrough from God. Sometimes we feel disconnected from God and the atmosphere seems empty and void of the presence of the Lord.
No matter how we have tried to get help in our warfare through ourselves and others, it still seems that our issues are still getting the best of us. Sometimes it can linger for what seems like forever. Those issues and trials seem like they will never go away regardless of what we do and how we pray. Oh, but thank God there’s a blessing in the pressing!
Just like the woman with the issue of blood when she heard Jesus was coming through. She had overwhelming faith and pressed beyond the crowd and the traditions and was determined to just touch the hem of his garment! And just like that woman, we have to press against all hindrances and obstacles that stands between us and the Lord!
We can’t give up on pressing against the issue no matter how defiant the Satan and his stronghold seems to be! We must be more defiant and determined to get our breakthrough from the Lord. Greater is he, that is in us….than he that is in the world! No matter how long it has been, don’t give up and don’t give in. There is a blessing in your pressing.
When the Master sees that you are determined, your faith will cause Him to come your way! Go on, and keep pressing, persevering and praying until you reach and touch the hem and the heart of the Master!
“…and, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: for she said within herself, if I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole. 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 9:20 -22.
