Whatever villages or towns or countryside he entered, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak; and as many as touched it were healed. (Mark 6:55-56)
Believing they could be healed by simply touching the tassel on Jesus’ cloak. That is total trust in the power of Jesus.
Hearing of such faith makes me ashamed of my own tenuous faith. My inability to give up control sends the message to Jesus that I am not sure He can provide all that I need. Each time I ignore His help and instead rely on myself, my lack of trust is revealed.
I pray for the courage to place all my trust in Jesus, and perhaps someday hear His words: “Your faith has saved you.”
