Don't give up! Press through!
"Keep on asking and it will be given to you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you" (Matthew 7:7 AMP).
In Mark, chapter five, there was a woman who had been sick for twelve years. The doctors gave her no hope. But she heard that Jesus was coming through her town. Something deep on the inside said to her, "This is your season. This is your time to get well." In the natural, when she
saw all the people around Him, she thought, "I'll never get to Him. It's so crowded and I'm weak. I just don't think I can do this." She almost missed her season. But instead of dwelling on those negative thoughts, she started reminding herself, "If I can just get to Jesus, I will be whole." She made the choice to turn her thoughts in the right direction. She kept pressing her way through the crowd until she got just close enough to Jesus to reach out and touch the edge of His robe. Instantly, she was made whole. Jesus said to her, in Mark 5:34, "Daughter, your faith has made you well." Notice it's our faith that activates God's power.
What have you been believing God for? Don't give up! Press through! Keep praying! Keep asking! Keep seeking! God is faithful! As you press through, He'll meet your faith with His miraculous power, and you'll step forward in the victory He has planned for you!
[ Prayer for the Day ]
Heavenly Father, I come to You today with an open and humble heart. I ask You to fill me with Your strength, peace, and joy so that I can press through to victory today. Show me the good plan You have for me and fill me with Your gift of faith. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

Mark 5:25-34 [AMP]
25 And there was a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years,
26 And who had endured much suffering under [the hands of] many physicians and had spent all that she had, and was no better but instead grew worse.
27 She had heard the reports concerning Jesus, and she came up behind Him in the throng and touched His garment,
28 For she kept saying, If I only touch His garments, I shall be restored to health.
29 And immediately her flow of blood was dried up at the source, and [suddenly] she felt in her body that she was healed of her [distressing] ailment.
30 And Jesus, recognizing in Himself that the power proceeding from Him had gone forth, turned around immediately in the crowd and said, Who touched My clothes?
31 And the disciples kept saying to Him, You see the crowd pressing hard around You [l]from all sides, and You ask, Who touched Me?
32 Still He kept looking around to see her who had done it.
33 But the woman, knowing what had been done for her, though alarmed and frightened and trembling, fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
34 And He said to her, Daughter, your faith (your trust and confidence in Me, springing from faith in God) has restored you to health. Go in (into) peace and be continually healed and freed from your [distressing bodily] disease.
