A man named Jairus came to Jesus for help because his daughter was dying. On his way to help his daughter a crowd welcomed Him and almost crushed Him.
There was a woman that had been sick for a very long time and no one was able to help her. She came up behind Jesus and know if she could just and touch the edge of his garment, she would be healed! She just had to reach out! Scripture tell us that she was instantly healed!
Peter was amazed at such a question with all the people that were pressing in, but the woman being afraid came forward and fell at His feet admitting it was her. She told all the people how she had touched his garment and was instantly heal “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in Peace.”
Lessons we can learn from this account in God’s word! Luke 8:43-56, NIV.
- We never really know who is standing in a crowd. Someone who is desperate…looking for a friendly face.
- We never fully appreciate the power of God until we see it!
- We don’t always perceive what God perceives!
This woman left that day without the problem she came with! Christ had given her Peace! Are you looking for peace! The same miracle working Jesus is passing by today…just declare your need for His help! Deb~
Oh, FYI: Jesus healed Jairus daughter too!
