When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. Mark 5: 27
The traditions of this woman's society required a woman with an issue of blood to stay indoors because she was 'unclean'.
After waiting for twelve years and hiding in the shadows, she probably said to herself, 'enough is enough. I am tired of pain and shame.'
She set her own agenda for change and began a process that totally transformed her life. But her journey of change was not an easy one.
She had to overcome some stumbling blocks. Her journey started from behind the crowd.
She was behind but she was not deterred by her placement. She was confronted with a crowd of people who were all trying to get to the same Jesus she wanted to get to.
Although there were many in contention with her, she was not discouraged.
She came from behind and pressed through the rough and tumbling mob surrounding Jesus although she was feeble in strength. She did not make excuses nor gave herself any respite.
When she finally got to Jesus, she reached out and executed her agenda. She put her faith into action. She reached out and touched the hem of Jesus' garment. That is faith in action.
She overcame:
1. Long-term disappointment
2. Physical weakness
3. Personal embarrassment
4. Society's rejection
5. Physical barriers: the crowd of people
You can also reach out in faith and set a new agenda for your life if you press on without wavering.
Prayer: Help me Lord, to press through all obstacles until i have touched your power.
Scriptural Reading: Mark 5:21-43
