“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. 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.”
Matthew 9:20-22 KJV
I always feared long- standing problems with no solutions . It is usually easier to believe that a situation is the way it is because that is how it should be . Humans tend to come to conclusions based on the facts and trends over time. Logics have replaced faith in many aspects of our lives. Imagine having a problem for twelve whole years with no solution. Imagine how mentally draining it must be to wake up to the same issue each day , not knowing if you should believe it would all be well or if you will have another twelve years with the same issue .
The magnitude and longevity of this woman’s problem did not deter her faith . You would think that after twelve years, she would have given up on ever finding a way out . It is likely that she was even weak and tired , and so touching the hem of Jesus’ garment was her last and greatest effort towards her healing . Despite all that was happening , she still believed that Jesus could heal her . It did not seem logical for a woman with an issue of blood for so many years to miraculously experience healing by her faith . It seemed more logical to say that she passed away after years of bleeding. Nevertheless, the woman’s faith was one one that surpassed human logic .
That is the faith that we need to experience the depths of a life with Jesus Christ . It is true that our problems existed for much longer than we can remember but if we could just touch the hem of our healer’s garment , we certainly will be made whole! Your healing is imminent but have you but touched the hem of His garment ?
Be blessed !
