imagesAnd Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?” my friends oh to have such faith, to lay prostrate before our Savior in heartfelt prayer as we lay out our petitions for his grace, mercy, forgiveness and restoration before Him and at that moment, He feels a surge of power from within leave His countenance, as we are made whole.

And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I SHALL BE WHOLE. “Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.

Jesus, immediately knew that power had gone out of Him, “Who touched My clothes?” He asked. But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, “Who touched Me?” But, He knew.

So He looks around, and their trembling before the Master, knowing what miracle had just happened to her, fell down before do-you-hold-the-right-hand-of-jesus-300x198Him in total awe and admonition at what had just occurred in her life. And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well.

Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.” Mark 5:29-34 (NKJV) Whenever we speak of this Bible Story, we usually deal with the healing aspect of the story instead of the power of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified to save the sinner sinking deep in sin.

His ability to perform miracles is secondary to our Salvation. Paul tells us in Ephesians 3:20 “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.”

My friends let’s not miss the message of Christ Actions by focusing only on the miracle of His healing power, and not on His Saving Grace and all He is willing and able to do for us. Often when Jesus healed in the gospels, He told the person that was healed not to tell anyone.

prayerIt was not because He was trying to hide the power of His miracles. But He knew the need of everyone’s focus to be on the saving power of His name. “for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 (NKJV)

Twelve years of constant blood flow. What physical strength the woman with the issue of blood must have endured to get to the Master. Exhausted and smothered by the crowd, oh so desperate just to get to the Savior. Finally falling prostrate to her knees as she told herself, “If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole”

Reaching, crawling, oh what PASSION as she reached out her hand and touched His garment as He passed her. My friends that was all it took. “Lord, you have examined me and know all about me. You know when I sit down and when I get up. You know my thoughts before I think them. You know where I go and where I lie down. You know everything I do. Lord, even before I say a word, Ps. 139 1:4.

She just needed the endurance to not give up, and to reach in faith, a faith we must all have as we tell the Goof Shepherd, I need imagesyou, please don’t pass me by, I don’t mean to waste your time, but I have A passion deep down inside just to touch you.

Every Situations and circumstances in my life tells me I have no hope, but I here in your touch There is hope for the hopeless, Rest for the weary, Love for the broken hearted, while at the same time your grace, mercy, and forgiveness is sufficient, as you meet me at whatever place in my life I am.

And through the storms, He tells us to “BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD” “for I will never leave you, or forsake you, for my mercy and grace knows no bounds, and all we have to do is ENDURE AND REACH OUT WITH THE TOUCH OF FAITH


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
