Remember the women with the issue of blood(Matt 9:20) , she had an issue for twelve long years and none of the doctors she had seen could help her sickness. The bible says she thought to herself that if she could touch the hem of Jesusí garment she would be made whole. Her life was in danger but she was willing to take a chance. In those days women were not allowed to be out in public with her condition but she believed in the power of Jesus so she touched Him and He knew someone had touched Him. He turned to her and said "be of good courage your faith has made you whole". Sometimes you have issues in your life that need to be dealt with everyoneís issues arenít the same, your may be your children or husband, no matter what the issues are if you would just touch the hem of Jesusí garment he will make you whole. Believe in Him, trust in Him and He will make you a whole person a victorious women in Christ. You can become the kind of women who is willing to do whatever it takes to connect herself to Jesus.

The victorious women is a praying women, remember Hannah (1 Samuel 1:11). She was a praying women, she prayed honestly from her heart for God to bless her with a child although she wasnít able to have children she believed that God was able to open her womb. Hannah prayed honestly to God and He did bless her with a child (nothing is too hard for God to do ). "But with out faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him" (Hebrew 11:6) . Hannah continued to pray to God after she convinced and give birth to her son (1 Samuel 2:1-11) . She was a woman who believed in the power of prayer. Hannah was a victorious woman because of her heart-felt relationship with God. The word of God helps us to know who He is and prayer brings us closer to Him, fasting helps our flesh to be quieter so that we can hear Him better. Our God is an awesome God!!

Smith Wiggles Worth wrote "God in you is a living substance a Spiritual nature and are begotten of Godís word so life to you. Faith in Godís word will take you to the place where God reigns and you will drink from the His bountiful storeí. Christ does live in you when you have the Holy Ghost but the life that you live in the flesh you live by faith, the Holy Spirit reveals Jesus to you through the word of God. The living word is active, it causes things to move, it is affective it causes things to change the word of God is acting , speaking, thinking, praying, singing, to Godís praise, honor and glory. You have faith through God and by the help of the Holy Spirit who guides you into a love relation with God.(Galatians 5:5-6) "for we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision avail nor uncircumcision; but faith which work by love ". Remember you will be tested and you will go through trials; but you are brought out for the glory of God, if God be for you who can be against you (Roman 8:31). You will have victory even in your suffering they are but light afflictions which will work for you a far more exceeding and eternal glory (2Corinthians 4:17). You get to know Christ through your suffering, your endurance and steadfastness of your faith in the trying times, continue to press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
