And Jesus said, “Who was it that touched me?”
How often are you struggling with a problem, or just feeling wore out spiritually, mentally or physically. How often do you reach out to those around you to help you lift your spirits? How often do you reach out to Jesus? Why don’t we reach out to Jesus more?
Not only does reaching out to Jesus free us from our burden and makes our burdens feel lighter, and it also shows others our faith. Sometimes people see God in the most unexpected places, and sometimes others see it through our problems. How we handle a situation says a lot about us and our relationship with God. You might not want to share your testimony in front of a group of people, but you can show Gods healing in your life by how you deal with problems.
I know that I’m guilty of trying to fix things myself. I don’t want to reach out for help, and I don’t want others to know I need help. This causes stress and worry to consume me. Why do I do this? Why isn’t my first response to pray? God already knows the problems I’m facing anyways.
There is a story in the Bible about a woman who had been ill for several years, and she had spent everything she had to get help but kept getting worse. After one touch of a garment Jesus was wearing, she was healed.
Many of us need healing in our lives. It might not be physical healing, it could be emotional. Why haven’t we reached out to Jesus yet? When are we going to reach out to Jesus? We need to step out in faith, because faith without works is dead.
