THE HEALING POWER OF THE ANOINTING
“But as He went, the multitudes thronged Him. Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any,came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.
And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?”
When all denied it, Peter and those with him* said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ “*
But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.” Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.”
“Who touched me? ” what a strange thing for Jesus to say. The crowds were pushing and shoving, hundreds of people touched Him that day, but there was something different about this touch. This touch made real contact. Jesus felt the anointing go out of Him. He knew someone had received their miracle.
Have you ever touched God? You say you are not sure? Impossible! When you touch Him, I mean really touch Him, you will know for sure. Things change at the touch of God. This touch is actually making contact with the Holy Spirit. This is what our need is, to have a real, intimate relationship with the Living God. This woman needed a physical healing for sure, but she also needed much more than a healing. Her soul was sick, she was tormented by her problems. Just like today, medical issues spill over into the other parts of our lives. This woman’s sickness and the resulting bills were effecting everything; she needed a miracle, nothing less would do for her.
The lady with the issue of blood experienced life change that day. Not only was her body healed, but her soul was restored. She could never forget the life she experienced every time she remembered His words, “Daughter, your faith has made you well, go in peace.”

Soak yourself in His Word and an atmosphere of worship. Begin to reach out to Him in faith. Before long , you may experience the life changing power of His Presence. You may hear His words, “Daughter(son), your faith has made you whole. Go in peace”.
