It is very interesting that some of the most powerful encounters Jesus has with individuals are with women.
I think this is wonderful, given the culture of the day that the Bible was written in!
In this encounter the woman goes to Jesus, at other times we see Him going to the woman.
This poor woman, ill and desperate, pushes through the crowds to get near Jesus in order to touch Him (Luke 8 v 43 to 48).
She showed perseverance and determination; she could have been stoned for being in this place where she would make others unclean by simply touching them.
Her life was in danger at this point, yet she pressed on and did what she had to do; she touched the hem of His garment.
And she was healed, hallelujah!
Jesus said that it was her faith that healed her and that is true.
She also did what she had to do in order to see her healing.
She had faith in Jesus and His power and also had the faith that if she touched Him she would be healed.
So, she pressed on, pushed in, never giving in to fear or doubt and saw her healing made manifest.
We can all learn something from this dear daughter.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you for the healing power of Jesus, thank you that by His stripes we have been healed”.
Luke 9 v 22…..But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole
