She had said to herself, “If I can just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” As soon as she touched them, her bleeding stopped, and she knew she was healed. (Mark 5:28–29 CEV)


Here’s this woman with the issue of blood (see Mark 5:25–34), and the law says she’s got to be separated for seven days. If that issue of blood doesn’t stop then you’re going to be unclean and anything you touch is going to be unclean, including your husband. This woman is in a place where she can’t even have relationships; then she hears about Jesus! 

She says, “Now, if I can just touch His clothes.” She knows the law; but see, once you come into faith it overrides the law! She touches His clothes and immediately feels in her body that she’s healed of that plague. Jesus looks around to see who touched Him, and His disciples don’t even catch it. They say, “Lord, all these people are pushing on You.” But Jesus says, “No, no, somebody touched me.” 

Instantly she was healed! Understand, when God does something, it doesn’t take all day. We’re not talking about a treatment here; we’re talking about divine healing. God can do it right away. I want you to get that in your spirit. I know we can take some medication and work with it over six months, but we’re not talking about that. We’re talking about straightening you up right now. 


Dear Father, I (or someone you know) got a bad report from the doctor. But, my faith is in You! I am touching You now with my faith. I believe that I receive my healing and I don’t have to wait any longer. Jesus is my Healer! In His Name, I pray. Amen.
