Focus on Jesus, not on your faith–woman with blood issue

Dear Friend; do you need healing from Abba God? This woman in the bible who had a bleeding condition for 12 years did. How did she receive her healing? Let's look at her example so we can also receive just like her.

The woman with the issue of blood for 12 years came to Jesus saying to herself if only I touch his clothes I will be made well. It is really important to see, what according to the Bible, led her to say this?

Mark 5:27 says she HEARD about Jesus. What did she hear?

Did she hear that Jesus heals only those who are worthy? Maybe that Jesus heals some people? Maybe that it takes great faith in order to get Jesus' attention? Or that He heals those who serve God faithfully? Or that certain holy people qualify for healing? Maybe that Jesus heals just those who really deserve it?

OR did she hear what Acts 10:38 tells us - "How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power: who went about doing good, and healing ALL that were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him."

Have you heard it said that God is sovereign so you can't expect healing because its His will whether to heal you or not? Well, here is this woman who was healed without Jesus' express will was she? She did not say IF it is God's will let me be healed. If she was errant in her presumption, shouldn't Jesus have at least taught her that it is wrong to presume upon His grace? She presumed she would be healed and she was. Jesus didn't even ask her if she wanted healing nor agree to her healing. Instead Jesus felt that power had gone out of Him and asked Who touched me?

Of course God is sovereign. Of course He is almighty. Of course He has sovereignty over His own will. But God tells us He is also our Daddy. And He tells his children to take from Him freely because He is our Daddy. He uses His sovereignty by sending His Son to the cross so that those who are reconciled by the cross can become children of God and as children to understand that it is His will to heal His children.

The woman with the issue of blood presumed upon His grace. And Jesus called this faith! The woman wasn't conscious of her faith but she was conscious only of the goodness of the Lord. Don't be focused on our faith but be focused only on Jesus! When you see Jesus He sees your faith.

God Bless
