Mark 5:25-26 (NLT) - “A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding.
I considered myself as the woman with the issue of blood, but only came to the realization of that fact in the recent years. Except mine had been going on for 31 years. Bleeding excessively each month. Going from doctor to doctor, taking medications that weren’t working. Over time, I had built up a tolerance level for pain and coped with what I thought was my normal until one day a friend asked me all the right questions about the issue. The question that even the doctors didn’t understand why my issue was so severe when I wasn’t presenting the normal factors that causes the symptoms. And my friend said “that’s not normal.” The sound of those words pierced my inner ear because from the age of 10 to the age of 41, that had been a normal occurrence in my life that I'd just coped with.
Coping: To deal effectively with something difficult, to manage; survive, fend for oneself, get by, and keep one’s head above water
What pain or issues are you coping with in life that God wants to deliver/heal you from?
What do we dread from month-to-month or day-to-day that God is providing freedom from?
Lord God, help me to identify what I’ve been coping with that you are wanting to free me from. Help me to recognize those things in my life that is keeping me from receiving the freedom that your love provides. Your Words says, whom the Son sets free is free indeed. Free me from bad habits, negative thoughts, unforgiveness, resentment and fear that hinders my progress in life. Please heal my body, mind and emotions to help me not to cope with what you decree that I am free of! In Jesus name, Amen
“I will not cope with what I am free from, I will walk in the freedom of God’s love and healing for my life”
Please share something that you are coping with that you want God to free you from or share your testimony of something that you were coping with and now you are free.
