“She had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind Him through the crowd and touched His robe. For she thought to herself, “If I can just touch His robe, I will be healed.” Immediately the bleeding stopped, and she could feel in her body that she had been healed of her terrible condition.”
So often we hear of countless stories, were people are desperate for healing in their bodies, and like the woman in today’s story, spend so much money and time, seeking doctor’s advice and seeking medical healing. So often, people get to the point of hopelessness after exhausting every medical possibility for healing, and then turn to Jesus for healing. Yet how much more would our faith grow if we turned to Jesus in the first place. This is not to say that seeking medical help is wrong. Far from it. God has given us the knowledge and skill to be able to give the correct diagnosis and perform medical treatments to heal our sicknesses. But who knows our body better than the One who made it?
It seems that the woman in today’s story, prior to her frequent doctor visits, didn’t know about Jesus either. It is more than likely, that after hearing about Jesus’ miraculous power, she then made a decision to go to Him for healing, or at least just be able to reach out to His garment; a decision that proved correct, because as soon as she touched Jesus’ robe, she was instantly healed. Her faith in Jesus’ power made her well.
Friends, let us too, seek Jesus for our healing. Let us reach out to Him, in assurance, in full confidence that just once touch of Him and from Him, can completely heal our bodies from physical and spiritual sickness. Let our priority be to seek the Creator. Let Him walk with us through every decision we make, whether that be for supernatural or medical healing. He can do all things. He is power. He is love. He is ours.
