Immediately her bleeding stopped, and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. – Marcus 5:29
For 12 years, this woman was slowly dying because of bleeding. All those years she tried to find a medicine that would stop this. She went from doctor to doctor. It says that she suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors, and she had spent all her money on this.
A desperate search
Her health went downhill, and she knew that if nothing happened, the bleeding would kill her. Whatever it would cost her, she wanted someone to remove this plague and heal her.
Do you understand this woman’s situation? She was desperate for a cure. And so are people today; they are desperately seeking salvation for their souls without Jesus Christ. However, they will never find peace for their souls without Him.
Jesus is the greatest King
One day this woman heard that Jesus of Nazareth, a Man sent by God who healed the sick, would pass by. She thought: ”’This is my chance to be healed; if I can only touch His clothes, I will get well.’ When she did this, ‘her bleeding stopped, and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.’
What Jesus did in the past, He is still able to do today. His power is unchanged! His power to save, redeem and to heal is the same. Touch Him with faith in your heart, just like this woman did. Matthew 21:22 says: ‘If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.’
