There was a woman with an issue of bleeding for 12 years. She heard that there was a “healer” in town . So, she went to see the healer about her issue because she was out of money. You see, she spent all of her money with all of the top physicians all over town. However, they were unable to cure her issue of bleeding. Therefore, she had nothing to lose by going to see this healer in town. This healer had a reputation of doing miracles, signs and wonders right on the spot!
When she arrived to that “ There place” with this man called Jesus. The crowd was so thick! So, thick she could not see how to touch Jesus. The crowd was pressing in to get to Jesus! Listen, this woman was not the only one with an issue. Everyone there had an issue of some sort. Some had high blood pressure issues, diabetes issues, arthritis issues, depression issues, financial issues, relationship issues, job place issues just issues! Everyone was pressing in to touch Jesus to get rid of their issues!
Nevertheless, this woman who had suffered for 12 long years with the issue of bleeding did not let this crowd stop her from pressing in from behind to reach Jesus. She saw that the crowd was so tight she could not get through the crowd by walking. You see she was desperate to touch Jesus because she knew that if you could just touch just a fiber of Jesus, just touch the hem of his garment she would be healed.
This woman realized that she could no longer put her faith in man for her issue. She had to believe in the master of healing her issue. The master Jesus! This woman got on the ground and began to crawl from the back of the crowd and pressed her way to the front. This woman got a glimpse of Jesus’ hem on his garment. See, she was determined and believed to touch any part of him to be healed!
This woman got on her knees on the ground with the crowd all around her. People were stepping on her but it did not matter. She was on a mission to touch Jesus. She pressed and pressed and pressed towards the hem of Jesus’ garment! Finally, she touched just the hem of his garment.
Jesus ask his disciples, “ Who touched me?” The disciples told Jesus “ I am sure it could be one of the many here in the press! Jesus said “ virtue has left my body” again Jesus asked “ who touched me?” The woman who touched Jesus, confessed to Jesus that it was her who had touched him. Jesus, acknowledged the woman and said “ Daughter your faith has made you whole, go in peace”
What issues in your life need to be healed? What measures are you willing to go through to get to the master? Do you have faith that Jesus can make you whole?
Get to that “ There Place” and press into Jesus to be made whole! Touch Jesus and have him say “ Who touched me?” Press into the power of Jesus to receive everything that Jesus wants to give you. He wants us to be made whole in every area of our life!
Reference: Luke 8: 43-48
Jesus healed every who came to him for healing: Matthew 12:15, Matthew 8:16, Matthew 19:2, Matthew 6:56
If you don’t know Jesus as your Lord and Savior? Just ask him to come into your heart and be Lord over your life today. This is not about religion. It is about relationship with the father in heaven. Confessing that I believe that Jesus died on the cross and arose and now lives! You now have the ability to have a divine relationship with Jesus and the father.You have just received salvation. Get into a bible teaching church and watch God change your life and fix your issues!
Maybe you have salvation, you just may need to recommit to Jesus? Sometimes, we get so blinded by our issues that we forget to take it to the master to fix. Allow Jesus to heal your issues.
