Think About it… What Would You Do?

This morning during my time of “coffee with the Lord” my Bible reading included Matthew 9:20-22 – the story of the healing of the woman with the long term “flow of blood”

Think of the barriers this lady faced…

Culturally “unclean” … 12 long years and no medical help … the size of the crowd … her personal fear (even reticence to interrupt a very busy Jesus) …

But she took heart, pressed through, reached out in “faith” and Divine “virtue” flowed from the Messiah, the Son of God, Savior, and Healer to her! (Check the parallel passages – Mark 5:25-34; Luke 8:43-48)

What might you or I have allowed to dissuade us and hinder us from pressing through in faith? I don’t know about you, but I want to exhibit the kind of faith that causes me to “press through” and “reach out!”
