Today we first learn that the lady had heard of Jesus.2nd she had a determination that even though she was sick she was going to get close to Jesus and lastly she had faith that if she could just get near and touch Jesus clothing she would be healed.
Most of us have had some opportunity to hear of Jesus but how much determination do we have to get close to Him? How strong is our faith? Do we trust fully in Jesus or do we first try to fix it ourselves or take care of it? How much better would we all be if we just reached out for Jesus?
Questions for reflection----
1) The people in todays scripture were waiting on Jesus and anticipating what He would say and do. What about you? Do you anticipate your time Bible reading and praying with Jesus? Do you anticipate how He can answer your prayers?
2)Do you actively encourage others?
3) How often do you tell others about Jesus so they can hear?
4) In what ways has faith kept you focused?
Whether you are facing a health issue or other problem or even if life is going along good for you, refelct on these verses and questions and see what God has to teach you.
