The Holy Bible illustrates several women of faith. Luke tells us about the woman who had an infirmity. She suffered a menstrual—a discharge, the consequence of sin and uncleanness. For twelve years this woman hemorrhage. According to the Levitical law, a woman was unclean when she was on her menstrual. She was deemed clean or pure after eight-days. Could you imagine being considered unclean for twelve years? There is no doubt in my mind that she was weak and frail in body and spirit. Luke, a physician, also tells us that she spent all of her living to a physician and still she was not healed.
“ And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,” Luke 8:43.
After she had suffered a while, God set up a meeting place. She heard that Jesus was going to be in town. Although there was a crowd, she pressed through to touch the hem of His garment, and she was made whole.
“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter be of good comfort; they faith had made thee whole. And the women was made whole from that hour.” Matthew 9:20-22
The enemy doesn’t realize that his attack prompts a meeting place with the King. God engages our mind that we are able to seek Him first. God asserts power over time that time and place meet up (right place, right time).
The meeting place is prayer, church, etc. All we need to do is show up for the appointment as the women did in the book of Luke. Our agenda is to touch the hem of His garment, our determination to be blessed. Once we repent with a remorseful heart we are forgiven. A stentorian praise and worship ushers us to the most humbling place—the feet of Jesus. Jesus loved us before we were saved and he loves us after we are saved, His love is unconditional.
Do not miss the meeting place; be on time for the appointment. Go with an expectation that something is going to happen. Show up with a spirit of certitude that change is inevitable. When the unction of the Holy Spirit calls you to pray, regardless of the time, just show up and the anointing of God will deliver, heal, and bring about a change in your life.
