She did something

She did somethingWhat exactly is an issue of blood? Actually, strike that. I don’t want to know. The point is, whatever malady she was tormented with for twelve years, Jesus healed her.

I read the accounts of this woman in the Gospels as I was helping ORM put together a workbook to correspond with my Dad’s School of Miracles courses. They are awesome and FREE, by the way. (www.SOM.OralRoberts.com)

I’ve read her story, heard her story, and been preached countless sermons about her story, but I never saw it quite like I did today. This woman did something to get what she needed. Actually, she did three things:

She said she’d be made whole, she pushed through the crowd, and she touched Him.

She used her mouth; she got confession working for her. (Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:1) She pushed through her circumstances, no matter how difficult. (And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28) And finally, she reached out her hand and touched Him. She touched Him, believing that she would be healed. (all things are possible to him who believes. Mark 9:23)

She did these things. She didn’t sit on her can and wait for her healing or deliverance or breakthrough or miracle to come. She did something.

You may ask, “What am I supposed to do?” Well, God is infinitely able to move heaven and earth on your behalf, why don’t you ask Him? He’s got all the answers before we even know the questions. He knows what we need to do. He knows how to fix our messes. He knows how to turn our boat right-side-up when we capsize. We just have to ask Him, and then we have to do what He says.

One thought on “She did something

  1. Hey Julie, I just red your blog on the women who pressed through the crowd to touch the hem of Jesus’s garment. My phone has been acting strange so this is my first reading of your blog.    It helps my faith grab hold of what in my mind seem impossible to be possible. I am encouraged to keep pressing through to the next step or steps to reach for that door, window, grace, favor……   Thanks for continuing your blog. Donna
