 “When we are powerless to do a thing, it is a great joy that we can come and step inside the ability of Jesus”
Corrie Ten Boom

Luke 8:43-47
Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any,  came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.
  And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?” When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, “Who touched Me?”   But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.”  Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.

We have such a close relationship with electricity to the point that it is hard to separate ourselves from it; as mentioned in "How It Works" by Marshal Brain and Robert Lamb.  Even in the loneliest corners of the world, electricity exists.  It lights up the sky during a storm.  It’s the spark of static between fingertips.  Even our nervous system has an electrical current that transmits impulses to the brain.   

As much power electricity has, there is a greater power!   It is Krataios; Greek for “Mighty power of God”!

Many people flocked when Jesus was around because of curiosity, they were among His followers or they heard of His healing power and were in need.  He was in high demand and sometimes to reach Him seemed impossible.  There was a woman in the Bible that had a terrible illness for twelve long years.  The doctors did not give her any hope.  She heard that Jesus was in town.  In desperation she pressed through the large crowd, stretched out her arm as far as it could go, and touched the hem of His garment…she felt it!  Krataios!  She knew right then she had been healed!  Her FAITH made the impossible, possible! 

Briley FAITH’s room is filled with machines and monitors that are plugged into the wall receiving the electrical current to obtain the power to exist.  Without that power, these medical instruments are nothing but metal and plastic; no reason to even be in the room.  Of course, when I walk into her room, I don’t see the power received from the machines.   I see the mighty power of God! Krataios!  She is already healed!  It may not seem that way from man's view, but, God's view is different.  She has life everlasting!  All of His children do!  Our existence doesn’t rest upon man or machines.  God is the One that has given us life!  Our FAITH makes the impossible possible!  

Do you feel hopeless?  Is what surrounds you just metal and plastic, the world’s useless answers?  There is an answer, a constant presence, a power to connect to and one that will always be accessible.  Once connected, nothing can separate you from it!  Let God be your source, your Krataios!  Let your FAITH make the impossible possible!

Heavenly Father,

Yahweh, Yahweh!  I magnify Your name, oh Lord!  All praise to You, Holy One!  Let Your power fall upon us all! 

Thank You, for being the source of all my needs!  Thank You for recognizing me every moment of every day.  I know my connection isn’t whether or not You are there, cause You are always there!  I just have to plug in, reach out, and run to You, my source.

Thank You for hearing our prayers as we press through for Briley FAITH!  Thank You, that Your presence is constantly with her; that when I walk in her little hospital room, I see You!  Your sweet spirit resides there.  Thank You that what seems impossible to man, You make possible!

The blood of Your son, Jesus, makes everything possible!  I come to You through that precious blood leaving my impossible at Your feet so You may receive all the glory.

In Jesus’ name, I pray.  AMEN!
