2 Corinthians 10:3-5
O Lord my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me.
“Your faith has made you well”.
Jesus’ statement, to the woman with the issue of blood, teaches that we must be open to receive healing from God before it is granted. We must desire healing above everything. The greater our faith, the quicker we may receive our healing.
The woman with the issue of blood pulled her healing from him. She pressed forward in the crowd and without uttering a word, touched His clothes. Most people believed He could only heal them by laying hands on them (Matthew 9:18). She was bold. She dare believe God for something greater.
Will You Be Made Whole
Do we dare answer this question in our quest for healing?
I experienced a very sharp pain in my lower back while at church recently. The pain was new. I pondered on it for a moment and realised what happened.
“I must have received it after interacting with someone during the service. A few minutes ago, I shook hands with many people. Which one of them was experiencing this problem?”
My eyes swept those close by. When my gaze fell on the last person whose hand I shook, the pain increase slightly. By word of knowledge, the Holy Spirit was indicating that he was experiencing pain.
In Luke 12, Jesus taught the disciples how to overcome fear. In teaching them He addressed the basic symptoms of fear, such as worries and anxiety arising from our need for food, clothing and shelter. These needs were identified by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper “A Theory of Human Motivation” in Psychology Review, as our physiological needs.
Why does Jesus address these needs? These are our basic needs. Our need to satisfy the physical needs of the flesh. Many of our fears are borne from this desire. By addressing them He cuts to the chase and gets to the primary source of our fear. So that it is uprooted from our lives.

She sat silently watching everyone around her. Time had blurred. The round face of the clock on the wall before her smiled back at her. Its ticking sound was lost in her reverie. Her focus was on everything that was happening.
There was constant movement in the waiting room. Human traffic was high. There was constant movement. Some walked on crutches. Others used wheelchairs. Those with vision impairment were being assisted to move. Some were carried on gurneys.
