“But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.”
A man named Jairus came to Jesus and told him that his daughter was dying. He had faith that Jesus could heal his daughter and Jairus asked Jesus to come to his house. Jesus went to the house, and on the way, a woman with an issue of blood reached out to touch Jesus’s clothes. She had faith that if she could touch Jesus, she would be healed. Jesus turned around, feeling that power had left him, and asked who had touched Him. The woman felt that she had been healed and told Jesus what had happened. Jesus told her, “thy faith hath made thee whole.”
Jesus finally arrived at Jairus’s house, but his daughter had already died. Those who did not have faith that Jesus could help her were shut out of the room. Jesus took the girl by the hand and she arose.
Jesus called twelve Apostles and gave them power and authority to preach the gospel and heal the sick. Through their faith they also performed many miracles. Our faith and trust in the Lord can also bring many miracles into our lives.
“Faith means that we trust not only in God’s wisdom but that we trust also in His love. It means trusting that God loves us perfectly, that everything He does—every blessing He gives and every blessing He, for a time, withholds—is for our eternal happiness.” Dieter F. Uchtdorf
