Who Touched Me?
Who Touched Me?
By Robert Schaetzle
But Jesus said, “Someone touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.” Luke 8:46 NKJV
A result of faith in action! This woman, who had a flow of blood for twelve years and spent all of her worth for physicians to do for her what Jesus, did in a moment. Many would not consider Jesus healing this distraught person, ‘an incident of faith in her desperation. But in fact she was responding in prayer; because of her action of faith.
Through her trusting heart, she believed by touching the hem of His robe: ‘I will be made well’. Our reaching out in faith must be genuine and without reservation, believing before we ask through prayer. “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you have received them, and you will have them.” Mark 11:24 NKJV
This does not always define itself to mean what we ask will be answered in the manner or time we expect from our human reasoning, as what happened for this woman. Many times in my own faith walk I witnessed answers to my petitions with far greater blessing than in the manner I asked. He knows my heart and need before I utter a word to Him from my lips. The more we have received, the more we’ll reach up to Him. This woman exercised faith as result of prayer; accepting ahead of time, moving to reach Jesus. What Jesus could and did do through the very power of His presence. Consider how the Father through His Son Jesus, because of His powerful love, will do for each one of us, when asked: “Who touched Me?”
