Sunday Morning, July 28th, 2019 - The Power of a Touch - Bro. Matt Davis
Have you ever been so afflicted by something that you have literally tried everything for relief or resolution? You've tried every old wives' tale, every essential oil, every medication, both over the counter and prescription, but you're still carrying the burden. Maybe it wasn't necessarily an illness.Maybe your affliction was marital, financial, spiritual, or personal. But nevertheless, you tried everything, and you were desperate.
This morning we took a look at a woman who was in this exact situation. She had what the Bible calls an issue of blood. She tried EVERYTHING and not only was not healed, but in fact she got WORSE! How disheartening and discouraging. In her final act of desperation she literally throws herself at the feet of Jesus, just hoping to get the slightest touch of the hem of His garment.
Are you facing the same situation? Are you desperate for resolution? Have you considered throwing yourself at the feet of the Master? There's power in His touch.

25And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, 26And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, 27When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. 28For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. 29And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague. 30And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? 31And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 32And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. 33But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 34And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. (KJV)
