And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
(Mark 5:25-28 Luke 8:43-48 Matthew 9:20-22 )
The woman with the issue of blood, so clearly defines, and demonstrates, how to obtain the healing power of God, by the grace of Jesus Christ, through faith that produces wholeness.
Faith is powerful by way of Jesus, and all that have great faith, without any doubt at all, deep in their hearts, will experience the Sovereign power in Jesus Christ’ name.
Trusting in the LORD, and allowing ourselves to surrender to His will, and adhering to His Word, which in essence is His voice…makes us “whole.”
TRUST— The ability to establish a full accord of yielding and acknowledging that CHRIST exists, and that by believing…we will survive and maintain the cord of LIFE, which abides in Christ, our Vine.
The woman with the issue of blood went looking for Jesus. She pressed through and overcame obstacles. She pressed through the crowd. She wouldn’t take no for an answer. She fought the good fight of faith. She kept her focus on Jesus. She demonstrated her faith, trust and confidence in Jesus by her determination. And so, she was healed…after many years…made whole.
FAITH- Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1) For we walk by Faith not by sight…(2 Corinthians 5:7)
The individuals in the Bible are there for us to understand and learn from the inspired Word by the LORD. This woman with the blood issue, went searching and looking for Jesus. She knew if she found Him, she had only to “touch His hem” and she would be made whole.
She didn’t sit around saying, “woe is me” nor did she wait for Jesus to find her.
No. She went in search of Him.
She was trying to seek His face, with all of her heart.
She went to Him with all of her heart, she believed…she trusted, and she was made whole.
Faith, Trust and the LORD, go hand-in-hand.
The heart is love. Love is the heart. And, God is the heart of Love.
Trust Him, Seek Him, Love Him…and have faith that you will be made whole.
Listen to His voice through the Word. And Keep believing. He is real, and He loves us as no other can or ever will.
Hebrews 4:12 States that “the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
