I am in the midst of the Beth Moore study “Jesus the One and Only” and one of the days this week we looked at the passage in Luke 8 in which Christ was on his way to bring Jairus’ daughter back from the dead and the woman who had been bleeding for 12 years touches his cloak. This passage from my workbook struck me heart…
“Jesus has more than enough power! Does he seem to be on His way to another need, one that you perceive may be more important than yours? More a matter of life and death? No problem! Reach out and grab that hem! You are not going unnoticed-not even if He is going to raise the dead!”
It blows my mind that Jesus intimately knows each of our needs and I am in awe that He has more than enough power to meet each of our needs. In this passage of scripture Christ is in the midst of a large crowd, in a hurry to get to a very sick little girl and yet when this woman touches his cloak and is instantly healed He stops and acknowledges her. He tenderly takes the time for her need. His words to her are so beautiful…
“Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath make thee whole; go in peace.”
Peace…I imagine this was the first time in a very long time that she was truly peaceful. Her bleeding problem made her unclean, untouchable, but now Christ had made her whole. What a tender, loving, savior.
Thank you for your love. I humbly bring my needs before you in full confidence of your power and ability to meet each of them. I know that you will meet each one in your perfect time and in your perfect way. I love you so much Jesus…thank you for making me whole.
