Reach Out and Touch The Hem of His Coat

“The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies.”

Psalms 18:2-3

Luke 8:43-48
43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,

44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.

45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.

48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.

WOW! This women had been unclean for 12 years, as in Jewish law she could not be seen in public or have contact with anyone.

Her family and friends who knew of her illness would run from her. Even shut the door in her face, if she went to visit them. She couldn’t go anywhere.

Think about this for a little while, hummm, she could not go to church, the grocery store, or even to a gathering with her friends.

She had went to all types of doctors, and tried all the medicines and home remedies she could learn about, but nothing helped her.

Then one day she heard of this man from Galilee. A man name Jesus who was touching people and they were being set free from sickness and delivered from evil spirits. See, the word of Jesus healing has spread all over Galilee. Mark 5:27

She starting planning her secret trip into town. She began wondering, how can I cover myself that no one will recognize me?

She had set her heart on just getting close enough to touch His coat and she knew she would be healed. She was determine to find him and be healed.

The day finally arrive and she prepared herself for her private and secret trip to town.

When she arrived in town she saw his boat coming towards shore and she slowly moved her way thru the crowd.

To reach Jesus she must push and shove her way between people when openings occur. She is weak; her strength is drained, and yet she will not give up. She must reach Jesus, and so she continues to force her weak body through the crowd until she reached Jesus.

See, she had decided in her heart, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed” (Mark 5:28).

She doesn’t want to meet him or talk to him. She is too scared and ashamed of her illness, and perhaps even afraid that Jesus are his followers and maybe even someone in the crowd of people would fuss at her. Send her back home to continue to hide and be by herself. She knew she must do this without bringing attention to herself. But she must touch him. She must.

Elbowing Her Way to Touch the Master’s Clothing (8:44)

“She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped” (Luke 8:44).

Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.

48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.

NOW, friends, are you ready for Jesus to say to you, ” Son/Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath whole.

If you have dealt with sin, sickness, demons of depression are anything else, give it to Jesus.

Right now, reach out and touch the hem of His garment and be made whole.

God is still in the miracle working business.

He is waiting just for you.
