Its Time To Take Your Issue To Jesus

"A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding, and she could find no cure. Coming up behind Jesus, she touched the fringe of his robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped." Luke 8:43-44


The Bible says: A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding, and she could find no cure. Coming up behind Jesus, she touched the fringe of his robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped. “Who touched me?” Jesus asked.

Everyone denied it, and Peter said, “Master, this whole crowd is pressing up against you.”

But Jesus said, “Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.” When the woman realized that she could not stay hidden, she began to tremble and fell to her knees in front of him. The whole crowd heard her explain why she had touched him and that she had been immediately healed. “Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” (vv. 43-48).


This woman had an “issue” that was draining the life out of her, an issue no doctor could cure. So she did what you need to do—she took her issue to Jesus, touched Him by faith, and was made whole.


Think about what she had to overcome. Twelve years of suffering. A sense of hopelessness and despair because she’d “spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any.” Then there was the crowd that pressed Jesus and stood in her way. Nevertheless, the moment her faith made contact with Jesus, she was made whole.


So what’s your biggest issue today? What or who is draining the life out of you? Is it a long-term one? Is it at home or on the job? Is it a health issue or a stubborn habit? Is it emotional baggage such as bitterness, regrets, disappointments, grief, insecurity or even rejection from others at work, church or family members. Is it a toxic friend or friends? Is it something no one knows you suffer from?


Don’t stop until you get to Jesus, even if that means getting down on your knees in prayer and pushing through every obstacle that stands in your way. Touch Jesus by faith today, and you too can be made whole.
