Mark: Day 10 - The Smartest Woman Ever
This 30 Days Series will lead us to Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe by taking a look at the Gospel of Mark.
The Word - "And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease." Mark 5:25-29 ESV
A Thought - This woman, the woman who's story inspired the name of this daily devotional, understood the most important truth there is. Jesus is the one, the only one, to whom we must go to be healed, made whole, and freed from our burdens. She is forever known by most as the woman with the issue of blood. For me, she will always be the sister who taught me the tremendous healing power and soul liberation that can be found by simply touching the hem of Jesus' robe.
A Prayer - Lord, thank you for healing the woman in this story. Thank you for healing me. I often get so busy that I forget to reach out to You. Please, gently remind me. I need you more than anyone or anything.- In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
