Luke 8 : 43-44
43 A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding, and she could find no cure. 44 Coming up behind Jesus, she touched the fringe of his robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped.
The crowd was waiting to see Jesus to welcome him. But within the crowd this woman who had been bleeding for 12 years, touched Jesus’ robe. She did not wait for Jesus to touch her or ask Jesus to heal her. She took the initiative, she made the effort, she reached out to him. While the crowd was pressed up against him, as the word states, people were very close to him and right next to him. In the midst of all this, Jesus felt her touch. She needed to touch him. She had faith that just with touching Jesus’ robe she would be healed. This woman did not just want to be with Jesus, she needed to have an experience with the Lord. Her faith healed her, but most importantly, her faith pushed her to go against the odds and get close enough to Jesus to touch him, to experience him and to get her miracle!
