Just A Touch

Luke 8:43-48, “A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding, and she could find no cure. Coming up behind Jesus, she touched the fringe of his robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped. “Who touched me?” Jesus asked. Everyone denied it, and Peter said, “Master, this whole crowd is pressing up against you.” But Jesus said, “Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.” When the woman realized that she could not stay hidden, she began to tremble and fell to her knees in front of him. The whole crowd heard her explain why she had touched him and that she had been immediately healed. “Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”

As life begins to happen this week, in conjunction with everything else that you are dealing with, remember to reach out and touch God. When you put your faith, hope and trust in God’s Power and not in the powers of this world, your situation, your season, your storms and your years of suffering will come to an end, just like the woman who bled for twelve years.

Therefore, just reach out and touch the hem of God’s garment, and watch how your life will start to turnaround. How is that you ask? Because only God has the power, might and strength to mend, fix and heal any situation that you are dealing with through one simple touch…
