A crowd had gathered. In the midst of them was a woman with a blood issue. She knew she needed to just touch Jesus’ clothes and she’d be healed. Jesus noticed when she touched him. He asked who had touched him. Trembling, she came before The Lord and bowed. She was whole. A walking miracle.
A crowd had gathered outside of a young girl’s house. She was perceived as being dead. Jesus arrived on the scene. He said she would be healed. The crowd laughed. Jesus told them to leave. The crowd was unable to witness the healing of the girl.
When Jesus asked who had been healed the woman humbly bowed herself before The Lord. By doing this she was strengthened and drew closer to Jesus.
The crowd mocked Him when he spoke words of comfort about the little girl’s situation. Their initial reaction caused them to be commanded to leave, putting distance between themselves and The Lord.
Our initial reaction to The Lord speaking to us not only has an affect on our relationship with Christ but it teaches us about ourselves as followers of Him. Live a life of humbleness. Be willing to lay it all on the line for the Lord. Draw closer to The Lord now so that when He speaks to you your initial reaction won’t be one of disrespect and unbelief.
