You desire healing, but did you ever stop and think that perhaps God wants to do more than just heal you? Let’s read the following testimony of a woman from the Bible that had an issue of blood.
“And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.” Luke 8:43-48.
I find this portion of Scripture fascinating. It is chock-full of revelation concerning healing. Here we have a woman with an issue of blood for 12 years. That’s a long time to be sick. It goes onto say that she spent all her livelihood on physicians and still was not healed.
Perhaps, you have been sick for many years, and spent your living, all your earnings on physicians, medications, treatments, special diets, and still are not healed. This happens all too often, even within the Church today.
But something happened. Somehow, she heard of a great healer, named Jesus Christ. We do not know if she understood who this healer was, but someone said something that caught her attention, that gave her hope to believe that she too could be healed.
“For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.“ Matthew 9:21. She made a decision to believe, and took action. She made her way through that wild and desperate crowd, bent low and touched the hem of His garment and the healing power went through her body and she was made whole, not just healed, but whole.
Remember, she spent all she had on physicians and they could not make her whole, they could not even heal her condition. But it was by her faith alone that reached out and grabbed hold of her healing.
You may be like this woman today, you’ve tried it all and still are not able to heal. I want to challenge you to examine yourself. Perhaps, it’s not just a physical healing you are in need of, maybe you need to be made whole.
This word “whole” comes from the Greek word, sōzō, and it means to save, deliver, protect, preserve, do well, and make whole. It reaches into all 3 parts of our being, the spirit, soul, and physical body.
To be healed in spirit is to have your sins forgiven and have eternal life in Heaven with Jesus Christ. When the soul, (mind and emotions) are healed, you are set free from demonic strongholds, whether those strongholds are sinful behavior, oppression or possession from demons, Jesus paid the price once and for all so your mind and emotions can be healed and at peace. And by the whippings of Jesus, Isaiah 53:4-5, you can be free and healed from sickness and disease. You can be made whole by your faith in His atoning blood.
