Good morning! It is hump day. I want you to read Mark 5:24-34 this morning. Jesus was on his way to a friends house and a great number of people followed him. In the middle of a crowd a woman who suffered with a blood issue followed too. She was desperate. She had an incurable disease, she was ceremonial unclean and was tired of suffering! Things in her life went from bad to worse. She needed to get to Jesus. She thought if I can just touch his cloak, I would be healed. As Jesus walked by she reached out and touched his cloak. Immediately she was healed. In verse 29 it says the women was freed from suffering! Do you need healing today? Is there suffering in you life that needs the touch of Jesus? Do you need to be set free?
How did she get set free? Two things jump out to me. First thing is, she was desperate. She had tried everything else and she knew that Jesus was her only hope of healing. She was desperate! Throughout the gospels Jesus was attractive to desperate people. Secondly, she was willing to act on faith.
Are we desperate for Jesus? Are we willing to act in faith? Think about those two questions today and have a discussion with the Father about them. God bless.
