Have you ever taken the time to ponder about the wealth you possess? Most people when doing so would immediately think about their financial portfolio, how much wealth they have accumulated in worldly terms. But is this really how we are to measure our wealth? Or is there something more valuable than money? Yes, there is, and it's called faith.
How often have I told you that money cannot always buy you health for your body? Even the best insurance policy available cannot provide a miracle for you. And the most experienced doctor in all the world cannot give you the impossible. But I will tell you what can always accumulate health for you and your loved ones, that's your faith in the atoning blood of Jesus for your healing.
You notice when Jesus spoke to the woman who had the issue of blood for 12 years, He didn't say that her financial wealth or a financial offering made her well. In fact, the Scriptures tell us that she had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any. But what did He say that brought forth her healing? He said that her faith made her well. It healed her, and made her whole. Let's read this account from the Book of Luke below.
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.
And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace" (Luke 8:43-48.)
So often God's people spend a lifetime building up their financial portfolio for their retirement years, to make sure they have as much as possible in case of needed medical attention or unexpected disease. And I am not against people saving up money for their later years. But I ask you, "What is more valuable, a healthy bank account or a healthy faith account?"
The Bible is clear that if we will seek first the kingdom of God, all these things we have need of will be added onto us. See Matthew 6:33. It would be very wise for us, God's people, to spend the time now and seek God and His ways, and build up our faith in the healing power of the blood. Learn how to prevent sickness from coming upon our families with the supernatural weapons of faith, rather then planning to get sick, which is activating faith for sickness, and because this is where our faith is, sickness will come upon us. You've paved the way for it. Perhaps you've never thought about finances versus faith in this manner before. If not, it is time to start now. No matter how old you are, it's time to build up your faith account right away.
And one final thought for you to consider today is that finances are limited to earthly resources, but faith has no limits. Every miracle necessary for your well-being is accessible in the redemptive blood of Jesus. And you can bank on the power of the blood of Jesus and learn to make it work for you. Such a great inheritance you have been given; learn to activate its benefits.
