I was reading over in Matthew of how the woman with the issue of blood or hemorrhaging woman was so desperate for her healing that she pressed through a crowd of violent people to touch the hem of the masters garment. After twelve years bleeding, one day she heard Jesus was in her town, and decided to go see him. When she got to where Jesus was, the Bible says she begin to pushed and pressed her way right up to where she could just barely touch him.
I can not imagine loosing blood for twelve years and having enough energy to stand in a crowd. I have suffered with anemia so I know how tired one can be when having a low blood count. This means that this woman had to be very determined and knew without a doubt, which means she believed wholeheartedly that she would be healed. She believed that he was the son of God, and to touch him was to bring her to the throne of God. She said, “If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole”, (Matthew 9:21).
While we may not be able to touch Jesus physically as the woman with the issue of blood, having the same faith and persistence can get us to the throne of God when we pray. The question is, how desperate our we? In order to get behind the curtain to the throne of God we have to persist in our pray, We must stay with it when we want to STOP and GIVE UP!
If this woman would have given up when she felt the pressure from the crowd, the pressing, pushing and shoving, she would have never received her healing. Again I ask you….How desperate are you? Maybe it’s not healing that you seek, but a Job, deliverance in your marriage, or from drugs, alcohol, or financial healing. Maybe you are seeking healing from emotional stress or for a loved one in some capacity.
Whatever you are seeking him for be desperate enough, determined enough to believe without a doubt he is able to do it! ( Ephesians 3:20-21) KJV. Press, Push, Persist! Jesus is in town, and if you’ll push your way through to the throne in prayer you’ll be able to touch him too! God will heal your situation, and I believe that.
