How do you respond to good news? What if I told you about the opportunity of a lifetime? What if I told you that your favorite store was having the sale of the millennium – 99% off of everything, and an extra 10% off when you get to the cash register? Would you call the store, verify the report, and ask how many items remained in stock? Or, would you wait until a trustworthy friend or relative came back rejoicing over the great deals he or she found?
The woman with the issue of blood heard some good news, and I love her response. She didn’t check the qualifications needed to access the blessing. She was broke, yet she didn’t worry if she could afford the blessing. She also didn’t wait for confirmation that the news was true. As soon as she heard about Jesus, she went after Him! By faith, she believed that one touch from Jesus could end a lifetime of suffering.
So, I really do have good news for you – there is a solution to the problems you’re facing. Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28, New Living Translation). So, what will you do with this good news? I encourage you to follow this woman’s example and go after your deliverance. We can’t go to Him in person, but we can reach Him through prayer. Give it to Jesus, and He’ll fix it for you!
