desperation is the key
“When the woman with the issue of blood dragged herself through the crowd to wait in anticipation of My passing and reached out to touch the hem of My garment, that was desperation. She had no other hope. All that remained of her faith and strength was focused totally on that action.
Perhaps you don’t have a clear picture of that event. This woman was not just being carried around on her bier. She didn’t just get up and stroll over, casually waiting to touch Me as I passed by and then say, “Oh, how nice, I feel much better now.” This poor woman had been bleeding for many years. Her body was emaciated. Her ability to walk had long passed. This precious one had to literally drag her half-dead body across the ground, through the thick crowd, in agonizing pain to reach Me. It was frightening for her. She could have easily been trampled upon. All she could think of was the hem of My garment that she was determined to reach. She knew that if she could only touch the hem of My garment, she would be healed. She was desperate and she had faith.
She had a level of desperation that many have never even imagined. Even to reach out those inches to touch some part of My garment required tremendous effort on her part. It was her sheer desperation, born of faith, that wrought the miracle. Her need was so tremendous. This is why‚ at her touch, I felt the power of the Father flow through Me and into her. Her desperation evoked an equally strong bolt of the Father’s power and Spirit that was channeled through Me, to her” (Mark 5:25-34).
