In His Presence
In HIS Presence


Read: Luke 8:43-47

Meditation verse:

“Came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped” (Luke 8:44)


According to pastor Mike Todd, crazy faith is when a Christian refuses to play it safe, but instead decides to live life out on a limb by trusting God for the most impossible kinds of things. People who display crazy faith dare the consequences, defy the status quo, and reach out for what they believe in. 

The woman with the issue of blood was displaying crazy faith when she pushed through the crowd, reached out from behind and touched the hem of Jesus’ garments. Prior to that time, no one had been healed by touching His garment. So how did she know? Crazy faith. The four friends who let their paralytic friend down the roof because they couldn’t gain access through the door, were displaying crazy faith. Blind Bartimaeus who kept screaming at the top of his voice to get the attention of Jesus, despite being told to keep quiet, was displaying crazy faith. Zacchaeus who climbed a sycamore tree to get a glimpse of Jesus, was displaying crazy faith.


What does this say about those who display crazy faith? They are very desperate for a change in their situation. They are tired of the status quo or are at the end of the rope. They have identified the one who can help them and are ready to defy all odds to reach their helper.


It’s a new month today, in what way do you think you need to display crazy faith in your situation?


IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye.
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at rockteachingministry@gmail.com

I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
