Luke 8:43-48 (ESV)
43 And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and though she had spent all her living on physicians,[she could not be healed by anyone. 44 She came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment, and immediately her discharge of blood ceased. 45 And Jesus said, “Who was it that touched me?” When all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds surround you and are pressing in on you!” 46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me, for I perceive that power has gone out from me.” 47 And when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling, and falling down before him declared in the presence of all the people why she had touched him, and how she had been immediately healed. 48 And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.”
In chronic pain and on a hunt for a diagnosis, the woman with a bleed grabbed the hem of Jesus’ robe, desperate for His healing touch. She faced her fear and held onto the One thing certain in her life: God. What fear holds you back? Listen in, find your fight, face it and be set free in Jesus.
