Things Only God Can Do
Luke 8: 43
And a woman who had suffered from a flow of blood for twelve years and had spent all her living upon physicians, and could not be healed by anyone, 44Came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His garment, and immediately her flow of blood ceased.
This story is so simple and to the point but I love it. This woman was bent over with an issue. an issue that had haunted her for twelve years. No one could help, no one had any answers for her. She went to sleep and woke up for twelve years with the same issue. She was weak, mentally tired and at this point without hope. Until she met Jesus that is.
Some of us have an issue that we have been dealing with for a long long time. It may not be a physical issue but a heart issue, a trust issue, a loving heart issue, and patient issue, a lying issue, a doubt issue. We have had it so long that we believe that it is who we are and what life is going to be like forever. In some cases it can be who we are forever if we don't change it.
This woman found that the man they were calling the Messiah was in town and she did her very best do get to him. There was a huge crowd and everyone trying to get to the same Man called Jesus. I verse 42 the word of God said that the crowds almost crushed him. In that crowd was this woman. Waiting for him to come by her path so that she can get what she know only He and He alone could give her and that was her healing. You may have to stand in the crowd and almost get knocked over to receive what you know God can give you.
People stand in large crowds at concerts, to get items that will be on sale for an considered a once in a life time deal. But when will you stand in the crowd for your once in a life time opportunity to be healed of your issue? We need to believe our healing is important enough to stand in the crowd and wait for what we know can deliver us. Don't give up on yourself and don't believe that the things that are hindering your relationship with others and your relationship with God is yours to keep. Although the woman with the issue of blood had her issue for twelve years she did not consider that this was her and she did not settle.
When Jesus came by she touch him and was healed immediately. What no one could do for her in twelve years Jesus did in an instant. Glory be to God! She forced her way through and touched just the fringe of her breakthrough.
Healing and restoring you is some thing only God can do. He alone can take are of issues that are new and old. Things that you may sit and think you can never get past you can get past them. God is waiting for you to reach out to him. No one or nothing can take the pain the hurt, the disappointment away. God can remove all that with his peace, his love, and his word. He sent the word from above to come and set us free. Let your Heavenly Father Do what only he can do. Don't trust someone else to do his job because when you trust someone to do another persons job it never get's done right or at all. I hope you ladies and some gentlemen that visit the site got some thing out of this and please send your prayer request in.
