Day 5: Just One Touch
Published on 9 October 2015
“Just One Touch” is a song based on this story in Matthew 9. This woman was instantly made well simply by touching the hem of Jesus’ garment. It only took one touch! She reached out in faith with full belief that all it would take is a simple touch. The combination of her action and belief saw this woman freed from a disease that had plagued her life for over a decade. What an incredible miracle. What a great revelation!
Is it difficult for you to believe that you could be made whole with just one touch? Maybe you need a physical healing, or maybe you need God to come through in a certain situation in your life. Whatever you need God to restore, He is both willing and able. Faith is the currency of heaven; it was faith that saw the woman with the issue of blood receive her supernatural healing. Know today that Jesus has already finished His work of healing and it is ours to receive in full. Ask God today to increase your measure of faith as you believe Him for bigger and greater things.
Just then a woman who had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding came up behind him. She touched the fringe of his robe, for she thought, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.”
Jesus turned around, and when he saw her he said, “Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well.” And the woman was healed at that moment.
Matthew 9:20-22 (NLT)
