Sunday, February 26th: Numbers 12-14; Mark 5:21-43 ~ Emma
Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Numbers 12-14; Mark 5:21-43
Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: Numbers 15-16; Mark 6:1-29
In 13:28 we see how the spies and people of Israel didn't trust in God. Instead of looking to God and relying on His strength, they looked at the problem and how they weren't strong enough to conquer the land God had promised them.
Without God, we are not strong enough to face the problem. But with God, "we can certainly conquer it!" (13:30). We need to trust that He will fulfill His promises.
I find it interesting that the woman had been bleeding for 12 years and touched Jesus' robe as He was on His way to heal a 12 year old girl.
Contrary to the Old Testament reading, we see a great amount of trust and faith in God in this passage. The woman believed that just a small touch would heal her, and it did. Because of her faith, she was healed.
We must trust in God always and be strong in our faith in Him.
