Would you like to hear some good news? I mean news so amazing that it would change your life? It is quite simple but so wonderful that we sometimes hardly dare to believe it. It is this; God loves you. It doesn't matter where you've been or what you've done. That guilty feeling that sits in the back of your mind, sort of vague and cloudy, may stop you believing this amazing fact. Maybe others have told you how bad you are, how much God disapproves of you.
This lady had been suffering for years from an incurable condition that made her an outcast. She was not to be touched. She was unclean, unworthy of normal interaction and certainly spiritually damaged. Who knows what she thought of herself after all those years of being shunned and avoided. But she pushed through the crowd. She believed that God might just touch her. She refused to believe that God had completely rejected her. And she met Jesus. God reached out and touched her from heaven as she pushed through the crowd. He showed her that she was precious and loved. If you're in that place today, just push through to Jesus. Seek Him, wherever you are, and know that God sees you. He sees your faith, your suffering, your need, your failure and your sin, and He will touch you as you reach out and touch Him.
