The woman with the issue of blood: Her situation seemed hopeless. She unsuccessfully tried everything and vainly sought help from everyone far and near. Her resources run dry. Her friends disappeared unceremoniously. Her name and true identity was lost in her problem, that people identified her by her issues.
She has been known throughout ages as the woman with the issue of blood. But even when it seemed like her life couldn't get any worse, she didn't give up! Although she was shunned, friendless, she remained steadfastly fearless. She didn't care what people think. She was physically weak but she pushed through the crowd and touched Jesus' garment and was healed instantly.
Every touch of faith will get the attention of Jesus. God doesn't respond to our desperation, he responds to our acts of faith. Regardless of your situation, fear not and don't give up. Have the stubborn and unshakable faith that this woman had in God. What Jesus did for the woman He can surely do the same for you and your issues today.
"......Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." (Matthew 17:20)
