Touching The Hem Of Jesus’ Garment

There is a story in the Bible about a lady who had been bleeding for some time.  Very likely, she had given up hope.  But she had heard about a man named Jesus.  He was healing people.  If she could just get to Jesus, maybe He would help her.

She was in an area where Jesus was passing through.  She didn’t think she could get a personal audience with him so, in the midst of a crowd of people, she reached out and she barely touched the hem of Jesus’ garment.  Just the hem.

How wide is a hem?  Maybe an inch?  Maybe even less?  But in that inch or less of Jesus garment, this lady found enough power to heal her.  To stop her bleeding.

Jesus felt some power leave His body so He turned to find out  who had touched him. He saw this lady and said, “Daughter, be encouraged; your faith has made  you well” (Matthew 9:19).

I don’t know what you are facing today, but Jesus can help you.  I’m not suggesting your problems will go away instantaneously but, Jesus will help you.  Like the lady in this story, reach out to Jesus… just touching the hem of his garment will help you.
