Healing Power


Luke 8:43-48 (AMP)And a woman who had suffered
from a flow of blood for twelve years and
had spent all her living upon physicians,
and could not be healed by anyone,
44 Came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His garment,
and immediately her flow of blood ceased.

45 And Jesus said, Who is it who touched Me?
When all were denying it . . .
46 But Jesus said, Someone did touch Me;
for I perceived that [healing] power has gone forth from Me.

47 And when the woman saw
that she had not escaped notice,
she came up trembling,
and, falling down before Him,
she declared in the presence of all the people
for what reason she had touched Him and
how she had been instantly cured. 

48 And He said to her, Daughter, your faith
(your confidence and trust in Me) has made you well!
Go (enter) into peace (untroubled, undisturbed well-being).

This woman with the issue of blood must have been full of hope when she heard Jesus was in town. She had spent 12 long years and most of her money trying to get healed from a condition that made her ‘unclean’. With this news of Jesus, hope began to bloom like a flower in her heart. She started building up faith as she continually repeated, (Matthew 9:21) For she kept saying to herself, If I only touch His garment, I shall be restored to health. In desperation, she courageously entered the crowd, which was not permitted in her current condition, made her way to Jesus and touched the fringe of His garment.

Jesus felt the healing flow out of Him, and questioned those around Him, “Who touched me?” and the frightened woman came kneeling before Him admitting her guilt; Jesus was pleased with her faith and belief in Him. Can you see Him gently smiling into her eyes saying, “Go enter into peace, untroubled, undisturbed well-being”. Can you picture Jesus saying this to you also?

I'm meditating on this Scripture today. . . questioning how I react when I need healing. If Jesus is indeed with me always as he promised, is my faith and confidence in Jesus like this woman’s? Would I risk censure admitting I prayed for healing? If I did not receive immediate healing would I feel like I failed? Feel condemnation? Lose belief? I can hear doubting thoughts in my mind streaming from the enemy.

Then my true faith stands tall in belief of Jesus and His Word. His Word is true. He will never fail me when I come to Him in faith. I also know that faith means I give my illness or condition to Him, knowing He will do according to His plan. I trust in Him. My Jesus loves me and knowing all things including my future, He will always do what is best for me. I remember Paul’s ‘thorn in the flesh’. . .

2 Corinthians 12:7-10 (MSG)
Because of the extravagance of those revelations,
and so I wouldn’t get a big head,
I was given the gift of a handicap
to keep me in constant touch with my limitations.
Satan’s angel did his best to get me down;
what he in fact did was push me to my knees.
No danger then of walking around high and mighty!

At first I didn’t think of it as a gift,
and begged God to remove it.
Three times I did that, and then he told me,
“My grace is enough; it’s all you need.
My strength comes into its own in your weakness.”

Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen.
I quit focusing on the handicap
and began appreciating the gift.
It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness.

Now I take limitations in stride,
and with good cheer,
these limitations that cut me down to size
—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks.
I just let Christ take over!
And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.

I shall trust God that whatever my infirmity; I shall pray with faith claiming God's promises as truth; I shall also accept God's timing, knowing with every weakness I give to Him, I am charged with strength. Holy Spirit is keeps me always where I need to be. Father, You are my Healer. I trust in You completely.
