It’s always God’s will to heal everyone every time!
Now for one of my very favorite healing passages – the woman with the issue of blood. This passage has all the ingredients you’ll need to see how healing works and if you’ll do what she did, you too can receive your healing.
Mark 5:25-34 (KJV) 25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
Basically, this is what the woman did: she heard, she said, she pursued, and she received her healing. Let’s break it down.
First of all, she had suffered with the issue of blood for twelve years and had spent all she had on trying to get healed. The doctors couldn’t help her and she was left to fend for herself. But then she heard of Jesus!
Mark 5:27 (KJV) 27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
Remember that faith comes by hearing the anointed Word of God. So what is it that she heard? Well, the scriptures don’t tell us but we can guess that it was something that caused her to have faith for healing. Probably she heard that others who were sick actually received their healing from Jesus. Maybe some of them were her friends. Nevertheless, what she heard was enough to cause her to want to check it out.
But wait. There was a glitch that she had to deal with. Under Jewish law, a person with an issue of blood couldn’t be out in public without calling out ahead that they were unclean. If they did otherwise, they could be stoned to death. But, was this a deterrent to her? No because she was determined. She really didn’t have any other viable options so she was willing to go for it. Perhaps she thought what have I got to lose?
