There are so many issues that we are faced with everyday. These issues can be stressful, time consuming and troublesome. In Luke chapter 8 there is a woman who is seeking out Jesus because she had a medical issue. For twelve years, she suffered with continual bleeding and could find no cure. The Bible says that she spent all her money seeking out doctors who couldn’t heal her. Imagine having any issue for twelve long years and no one could help you. This woman was in a crowd of people and found out that Jesus was in her vicinity. Can you picture this woman pressing her way to Jesus? The Bible says that when she reached Him, she reached out, touched His robe and immediately the bleeding stopped.
“Coming up behind Jesus, she touched the fringe of his robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped.” Luke 8:44
The passage goes on to state that Jesus immediately knew someone had touched Him. So many times we are waiting for a touch from God, yet when was the last time we touched Him? This woman, who had this issue, had an urgency within her. Jesus said that He felt healing power leave His body. Many times we wait around for something to happen when we should be in a hurry to reach out for God. When this woman pressed past how she felt and reached out and touched Him, she was immediately healed. This took extreme courage for she was in a bloody, shameful state.
My friends we must to learn to put away pride, our past failures at resolving issues and reach out to God. The level that God operated in this woman’s life is how God wants to operate in our lives. He wants our issues to be healed, restored and made whole. It is because of this woman’s faith, He was able to do this. In verse 8 Jesus said to her, “your faith has made you well.” God is our help in times of trouble. It doesn’t matter what the issues are. There is no issue too big for God. He is there waiting for us to relinquish it. It’s time we reached out and touched God with every issue we have. Every fear, doubt and apprehension must be laid down so when we touch Him, it’s in complete faith.
Jesus is a safe harbor
I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!

One thought on “Giving Your Issues to God!”
What I find so amazing is that while we are trying to reach out to Jesus; Jesus is trying even harder to reach out to us.
What an amazing God we have
