Walking erect and ‘yoke-free’!
Scripture reading for February 14th: Leviticus 24-26, Mark 5
Key Scriptures: Mark 5:25-29 “And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. For she said, “If I touch even His garments, I will be made well. And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.”
Jesus reputation spread among the people. Mark records the story of one woman who had faith that even touching Jesus’ garment would bring healing that had eluded her for twelve years and taken all she had. She pressed in through the crowd and secretly touched Jesus and immediately was healed. Jesus commended this woman, telling her that her faith had made her well.
Leviticus 26:12-13 And I will walk among you and will be your God, and you shall be My people. I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that you should not be slaves. And I have broken the bars of your yoke and made you walk erect.”
Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your continual Presence with Your people. May I learn to walk in erect and free from yokes of bondage, in health and freedom from daily communion with You. Amen.
