Theme For David Jeremiah Devotional 24 August 2019 – THE GARMENTS WE WEAR: THE GARMENT OF FAITH
And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment….And the woman was made well from that hour.
Recommended Reading: Mark 6:53-56
Touching Jesus’ garment for healing is not a precedent for the Church to follow since He is no longer here on earth. But touching Jesus Himself—reaching out by faiththrough the crowded confusion of emotions and distractions of this world—is a precedent we can, and should, follow. If the prophet Isaiah refers to putting on “the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness” (Isaiah 61:3), might not we also consider wearing a “garment of faith”?
Since Jesus is the “author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2), let us clothe ourselves with faith in Him, whatever our need.
Faith is knowledge passing into conviction, and it is conviction passing into confidence.
