Do You Need His Touch?

Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.” Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?” But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’" And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction." (Mark 5:25-34, New King James Version)

This woman needed His touch! Ladies, can you imagine having the bloodflow for 12 years and not having any relief from it whatsoever? Not only that, but she wasn't allowed to be with others. She couldn't go into town, she couldn't go to worship. She was completely cast out because she was considered unclean. This lady was so desperate for the touch of Jesus, she was willing to do whatever it took to get to Him. Are you that desperate today? Are you desperate for Jesus to come in, cleanse you and make you new again? He will do that, if we only ask. You may need His touch of comfort. He'll give it. You may need a touch of peace, a touch of grace. He's there to provide whatever you need. Ladies, call out to Him. Ask for the touch. All this lady did was touch the hymn of His garment, and she was never the same! He changed her life forever and He'll do the same for you! When she touched Him, he wanted to set something straight with her. He wanted her to know, it wasn't His garment that healed her. It was her faith and belief that " Jesus can do this for me!" All you need to do today is have faith and belief that, yes Jesus can do whatever you need Him to do !Not only can He do it, He wants to do it. Let me encourag you ladies, just ask. That's all she did, and her life was changed.

Father, whatever my readers need today, I pray You'll touch them right at the point of their need. Your Word says that you'll supply all of our needs. I ask You to supply the need of peace, comfort, and grace to these ladies today. In Jesus name, Amen.


  1. Great application, Jamie. I was reminded that I read one time that if a man's little finger touched anything related to a woman during her menstrual cycle, he was considered unclean. Your post shows how hungry she would have been for a hug, a touch, for someone to care.

    What a Savior!

  2. I love this story Jamie! Thank you for reminding us how we all need His touch - only His will suffice. :) Love to you, Hester ;)

  3. Jamie, I am hungry for His touch, His love, His grace. Thank you for explaining that desire so beautifully. I do believe you are finding your voice, girlfriend **grin**

  4. Jamie,

    Thank you for telling me about this site. And Thank you for the reminder that all we have to do is believe and we can be healed from our pain.
