But Jesus said, “Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.” (Luke 8:46)
Jesus in one of his travels was followed by a large crowd pressing against Him. There were all types of people. People with needs, disciples and even critics. Everyone wanted to get close to this new person that they were hearing stories about. All of a sudden, the Savior of the world stops and inquires about someone specific. What was so special about this someone that the creator of the universe had to stop for a while and inquire to His creation? What did this someone possess that leaked the power of God into a mortal body?
A woman with constant bleeding was this special someone. Her faith was the connection between the restoration of her health and the power source. Unlike others, she did not seek God’s permission. Her faith connected directly to God’s healing power. Instantly, power went out and healed her. Faith is like a power line between God and us. The type and size of our faith determines it’s outcome. In this story, the woman believed that even Jesus’ robe contained His healing power and with that she only touched His robe. No one else thought of this. Yes, you can be creative with your faith. You can go places no one else has been with your faith in God.
Below is a video talk of what faith represents. It is very similar to what I wrote in this post.
