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 the hem of His garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned Him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
This woman with the issue of blood had bled for 12 years and it was not without medical treatments. According to the account of Luke, she had suffered alot from physicians all in the bid to get a solution, she probably had been scammed on a number of occasions and here comes a man who shows up healing the sick, raising the dead and doing all sorts of miracle, she says to herself if I can touch Him I know I’ll be fine.
Making this statement with so much faith in Jesus’ ability to heal her could only have come from the stories she heard about what He was doing.
She probably had a neighbor who was healed by Jesus or a friend who was healed by Jesus or a relative healed by Jesus and all of them told her one thing we have seen him heal many diseases at no cost and we also have been healed, all you need do is believe He is able to do it.
All the information she received about Jesus helped her faith rise and she said to herself if I can touch his garment, I’ll be well. This emphasizes what we hear as children of God, it can advance the miraculous power of Jesus in our lives. We must guard what we hear from the Lord for it has the power to produce fruits in our lives.
Don’t joke with what the Lord tells you or faith-filled words that is being contacted by association for it has the power to bear fruits. The woman with the issue of blood received her healing through faith in Jesus’ healing that she heard of.
Faith comes by hearing and by hearing the word of God. Hearing is a continous tense, so it simply means it’s a forever thing, you never stop hearing.
Here’s how to make your faith work; Be deliberate about hearing faith-filled word or stories.
You are blessed!💕
