Jesus has provided healing for us, and by His stripes we have received that healing. Whatever the issue in your life is of sickness, or maybe you are dealing with financial, marital, personal or spiritual issues – Jesus is your healing. The following is paraphrased from Luke 8.
Jesus was traveling and speaking to a large gathering of people. In the crowd there was a woman who for twelve years had been afflicted with a hemorrhage that caused her to have an issue of blood all the time. She had spent every penny she had on doctors and cures that never worked and nothing had been able to help her to stop the bleeding. She saw Jesus and believed if she could touch Him she will be healed.
She made her way through the crowd and slipped in from behind Him and touched the edge of Jesus’ robe. At that very moment that she touched Him her hemorrhaging stopped. Jesus turned and said, “Who touched me?”
When no one stepped forward, Peter said, “But Master, we’ve got crowds of people on our hands. Dozens have touched you.” Jesus knowing that someone with faith believing had reached out and received healing again repeated – “Someone touched me – I felt power discharging from me.”
The woman who had touched Jesus realized that she couldn’t remain hidden, so she stepped forward and knelt before the Lord trembling. As the crowd looked upon her there, she told Jesus her story, why that she had reached out and touched him and how at that same instant that she did – she was healed.
Jesus said, “Daughter, you took a chance to trust and believe in me, and now you’re healed and made whole. May your life be filled with joy, live blessed!”
Reach out, trust and believe in Him, and touch Jesus today for the healing you need in your life.
If your heart is sad and lonely, there’s no joy anywhere.
If there’s no one left to comfort, and there’s no one left to care.
Just cast your cares on Jesus and upon His arms rely,
And reach out and touch the Lord as He walks by.
All along a dusty roadside, on His way to raise the dead.
Mighty was the crowd that followed, hungry for that Living Bread.
“I must touch Him”, cried a woman, “I must touch Him or I’ll die.”
So, she reached and touched His garment as He passed by.
Reach out and touch the Lord as He goes by.
You will find He’s not too busy to hear your heart’s cry.
He’s passing by this moment, your needs He’ll supply,
So, reach out and touch the Lord as He goes by.
