Beginning in Mark 5:25 is the story of the woman with an issue of blood. She didn't have this flow of blood for ten minutes. No, she had been sick with this flow of blood for twelve, long years, this woman had been putting up with this mess. The Scriptures in verse 26 puts it this way. "And who had endured much suffering under [the hands of] many physicans and had spent all that she had, and was no better but instead grew worse."
It goes on to say she had heard the reports concerning Jesus, and had come up behind Him in the throng and touched His garment. This woman had not lost hope, and she had not given up faith. If she would have been over in some depressed, hopeless, despondent state, she would have never gone out and pressed through that crowd to touch Jesus. She had lived with the issue of blood twelve years, but she was not without hope. One of the biggest problems people face is that they become hopeless.
Verses 28 and 29 say: "For she kept saying, If I only touch His garments, I shall be restored to health. And immediately her flow of blood was dried up at the source, and[suddenly] she felt in her body that she was healed of her distressing ailment.
And Jesus, recognizing in Himself that the power proceeding from Him had gone forth, turned around immediately in the crowd and said, Who touched My clothes?"
When we get into that place of patiently waiting on God, our faith will touch the throne, and it will draw power to us like we have never seen before. When that power comes, suddenly the circumstances are going to have to bow their knee. The woman with the issue of blood knew this. That is why Jesus told her, her faith in Him, not her circumstances, had made her whole.
We worship our circumstances far too much. We pay too much attention to our circumstances and give too little attention to the name of Jesus. Every knee has to bow to that name. Every human knee, every demonic knee, every knee in heaven, on the earth and under the earth has to bow to the name of Jesus. AMEN
