The healing power of God is still doing the miraculous signs; restoring people through faith; just like how Jesus healed the woman with the issues of blood.
The Bible has a number of recorded signs and wonders from Jesus Christ. His miraculous healing of the woman with the issue of blood was a mind-boggling event even unto his disciples. This should inspire all Christians to touch him in faith through prayers.
The moment we start talking about the woman with the issue of blood in the Bible; then we are referring to the power of faith in God. This particular miraculous event has been recorded in the books of Mark 5:25-34 and Luke 8:43-48. This happens to throw more light on the fact that believing in Jesus alone is enough to blow out all your afflictions.
While I have talked extensively about how a Christian’s faith can do the real magic of healing and restoration; I find the story of the woman with the blood issues unique. It is beyond human understanding. It’s one of the most powerful lessons of faith demonstration and its rewards.
I believe we all need God’s help in so many ways. We can simply trust him by acknowledging some of these wonders and miracles Christ Jesus did. He is still alive and doing miracles. It is your turn now!
This post will inspire you to take a leap of faith and knock at the door through prayers and you too would have your healing and restoration from anything you have lost.
An Unknown Woman intercepted Jesus Christ
After Jesus Christ heard the news about Jairus’s sick daughter, he set off to his house together with his disciples.
On his way, a certain woman who has been suffering from blood bleeding problems said in her heart that even if she touches his clothes; she would be healed. She seized that little opportunity for her breakthrough. She never procrastinated.
This unnamed woman made a faith proclamation in her heart and her faith saved her from that chronic disease being a blood bleeding issue.
Her Predicament And Shame
This woman’s chronic menstrual problem made her unclean inside out. It was an unbearable disgrace. But her faith finally saved her.
“Everything that she lies on in her impurity shall be unclean. Everything also that she sits on shall be unclean.” (Leviticus 15:20)
This woman was going through the pains of rejection and hopelessness. Why because:
1. Her situation made her unclean according to Jewish laws.
2. She was fed up with searching for a cure. She tried different medications and nothing worked out.
3. Her issue made her unclean for marriage as well. The anxiety was unbearable.
She Took A Big Risk
She had no freedom to go out and mingle with people. But her faith drove her out to the Messiah.
Faith comes with risk-taking. You never have to doubt the power of God. With her uncleanliness, she moved through the crowd in desperation for healing.
The moment she touched Jesus’s clothes; she experienced instant healing. Jesus felt power come out of him so he inquired about who made that touch. And this woman with the blood menstrual problem showed up trembling…
This became evident that Jesus Christ is full of power that can heal, restore, save, and bless anyone who searches for him wholeheartedly.
The Story Of The Woman With The Issues Of Blood
How did it even happen?.
Let’s take this woman’s lesson from the Bible(Mark 5):
25. A certain woman, who had a discharge of blood for twelve years,
26. and had suffered many things by many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better, but rather grew worse,
27. having heard the things concerning Jesus, came up behind him in the crowd, and touched his clothes.
28. For she said, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be made well.”
29. Immediately the flow of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.
30. Immediately Jesus, perceiving in himself that the power had gone out from him, turned around in the crowd, and asked, “Who touched my clothes?”
31. His disciples said to him, “You see the multitude pressing against you, and you say, ‘Who touched me?’”
32. He looked around to see her who had done this thing.
33. But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had been done to her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
34. He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be cured of your disease” (Mark 5:25-34).
A Test Of Faith For Jairus
Jairus’s faith got tested. When Jesus miraculously healed the bleeding woman; a piece of bad news came in that Jairus’s daughter has died. This was the sick daughter he was expecting Jesus to heal.
“Jesus, when he heard the message spoken, immediately said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Don’t be afraid, only believe” (Mark 5:36).
Jairus’s faith in Jesus Christ brought about a greater miracle than expected. His dead daughter came back to life through the power of God. So the faith of the woman with blood issues and the faith of Jairus resulted in miraculous healing.
It is your turn now to increase your faith in Christ Jesus and surely the miracle you have been waiting for years will happen.
Moral Lesson Behind The Bleeding Woman’s Healing And Restoration
We can learn some moral lessons from the story of a woman with a blood issue. It’s all centered on unwavering faith!
The law of the Jews makes it clear that a bleeding woman becomes unclean and anything he touches also becomes unclean. The situation of a bleeding woman is addressed in the Jewish law called the law of Niddah.
And while she was walking through the crowd to touch the clothes of Jesus; she made several people unclean. But her uncleanliness did not affect Jesus Christ.
“… had spent all her living on physicians and could not be healed by any.” (Luke 8:43)
She overlooked her problems and focused on Jesus Christ. She was full of faith that Jesus was her last chance.
That filth got cleaned up through the power of God. Sin, diseases, and sicknesses have nothing to do with Jesus Christ.
Her uncleanness did not contaminate Jesus Christ but things turned the other way around bring healing and restoration to the desperate woman.
The Bible made accounts of this:
The Jewish laws say:
“If a woman has a discharge of her blood many days, not in the time of her period, or if she has a discharge beyond the time of her period, all the days of the discharge of her uncleanness shall be as in the days of her period. She is unclean. Every bed she lies on all the days of her discharge shall be to her as the bed of her period. Everything she sits on shall be unclean, as the uncleanness of her period. Whoever touches these things shall be unclean, and shall wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening” (Leviticus 15:25-27).
You Can Still Touch Jesus Today For Your Healing
Right now, I don’t know what you desperately need from God. If only you will take a leap of faith and touch him with your prayers; then he will help you out.
“God worked special miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were carried away from his body to the sick, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out” (Acts 19:12).
There is no infirmity that the power of God can not heal. It is your turn now!.
The greatest physician ever to live is still alive and performing wonders. You can touch him through prayers. Many who believed in Jesus received their healings, many who just touched him received their healings.
Now is your turn. What are you waiting for?. Touch him just like how the woman with the blood issues touched him. You can do that through prayers. Pray for your health restoration and any good thing you need from him.
“Wherever he entered, into villages, or into cities, or into the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged him that they might just touch the fringe of his garment; and as many as touched him were made well” (Mark 6:56).
Jesus Christ has now entered into his Father’s house in heaven interceding for us. He is an omnipotent and omnipresent God. Just a whisper of prayers and you are already connected with him.
Never be ashamed of your circumstances if you are on your way to Jesus Christ. He is ever ready to help.
May your faith save you from all your health problems just like the woman with blood issues in Jesus’ name. Amen!.
