Triumphing Over Life’s ‘Issues’

by Ayo Aoritsejafor

What issue are you facing in your life today? A marital issue? An issue with your children? A financial issue? An issue with your health or the health of a loved one?

The Bible tells us of a woman who had “an issue of blood” (Luke 8:43). Life is full of “issues,” and as I’ve traveled around the world, I have never met anyone who wasn’t dealing with an issue of some kind.

The issues of life try to sap our strength and steal our joy and peace. Just as this woman experienced the bleeding away of her vitality for 12 long years, so it can seem that our resources are constantly being stolen by the enemy.

But whatever your issue may be, Jesus wants to intervene so you can have a new beginning…a brand-new day. Like the woman who had a seemingly incurable hemorrhage, your difficult situation can be remedied in an instant—but you must draw near and touch Him in faith.

A Very Present Help

As you deal with life’s issues today, God may seem distant. But He’s not! The Bible says He’s “a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1)—and He’s close enough for you to touch.

Hebrews 4:15 (KJV) says Jesus is a high priest who can be “touched” when you’re in need. Instead of being in some faraway galaxy, He’s right where you are, ready for you to reach out in faith and receive your breakthrough. You don’t have to be in doubt about this, for the Bible says everyone who touched Jesus was made whole (Matthew 14:36).

Perhaps you’re so worn down that you think it’s simply too late for your breakthrough. But I love the story in 2 Kings 13:21 where a dead man was dropped into the grave of the prophet Elisha. As soon as his dead body hit the bones of the man of God, he came back to life!

Today, you may feel as if your business is dead, your marriage is dead, your health is dead, or even your hope is dead. But I have good news:

When you touch the Resurrection power of Christ,
He can reverse every “dead” situation in your life!

He’s ALIVE! And when you touch Him, you’ll experience His faithfulness as your Provider, Healer, and Deliverer.

As overwhelming as your situation may seem, remember this: “With God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). Nothing is too difficult for the Lord (Jeremiah 32:27). He can turn your mourning into dancing (Psalm 30:11)…your ashes into beauty (Isaiah 61:3)…and your nighttime into a brand-new day.

Reach out and touch Him!
