YOU CAN BE HEALED BY AN ENCOUNTER WITH CHRIST.
The Bible also says that she spent all her money seeking a cure. Nothing happened. She was desperate.
When she saw Jesus and heard about Him and His healing touch....There was no cultural barrier to stop her from coming to Him. No, nothing is going to stop her. She decides to sneak in and just touch Him.
No talking. No making an appointment with Him.
She would just touch Him. He will not know it. Only she would know.
Listen carefully to what she thought: If only I touch the hem of His garment, I will be healed!
The hem of His garment?
A woman who was suffering for 12 long years? A woman who spent all her money on doctors and did not get any results? She thinks now that just touching the hem of Jesus' garment will heal her?
She waited for the opportune moment. The crowds were there. People will not recognize her as the untouchable. She sneaks in and reaches out....says...I'm almost there....just a little more and yes, she touched the hem of His garment.. and walked away.
The issue of blood stopped immediately. She was excited, but she has to be careful because she was afraid. What would people say?
Jesus stops and says: Somebody touched Me.
The disciples said "Come on Jesus, there are so many people...Obviously you were touched...the crowds are around you."
"No...no...no, I felt somebody touched me." Jesus said....."This is not an ordinary touch because My power has gone from Me."
The woman was caught! Guess, she had never felt like this before. The bleeding stopped!
She couldn't hold the secret anymore....and she confessed: "Lord, I touched You."
Jesus said: " Take heart, daughter, your faith has healed you."
Have you been waiting for a miracle in your life? Is the problem too personal and embarrassing? Is your mind so cluttered with questions and you have lost hope....let me encourage you. It's not over! The Lord is whispering hope in your situation now.
I love the following lyrics. It blessed my heart. I hope it blesses your heart too.
He touched me, Oh, He touched me
And oh the joy that floods my soul!
Something happened and now I know
He touched me and made me whole
Will you take that step and come close to the Lord Jesus in faith?
He know a touch of faith! Doesn't matter how many years of suffering you've been through, just touch Him.
If you have done that, pray this prayer with me.
Dear Lord Jesus, I come to you in faith and am touching you regarding my situation( mention your issues whatever they may be). I am helpless and lost. I have spent my time chasing after other resources but now I want to hear you say: Who touched Me? I want your power to flow and touch me. In Your Name I pray. Amen.
