“And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret. And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased, 36 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole” - Matthew 14:34-36
Jesus and his disciples cast anchor in a land called Gennesaret. They had just come out of a bad storm on the sea. Immediately the people recognized Jesus the Great Physician because they had heard His teachings and witnessed His miracles.
The news of Jesus’ arrival was spread throughout the city. People came from everywhere. The streets were filled with people who were sick, diseased, and lamed waiting to be seen and healed.
Because there were too many people for Jesus to lay hands on each one, they asked if they could touch the hem of His garment, as did the woman who for years had an issue of blood (Matthew 9:20-21). They may have either heard or witnessed the miraculous healing of this woman's issue. If it worked for her, they were willing to try it for themselves.
There may be many people waiting for hands to be laid on them before they can experience miraculous healing, you don't have to wait. When you are desperate for a miracle and the pastor or priest can’t physically lay hands on you, you don't have to wait.
Will you go back home sad, dispirited, and heavy burdened, or will you be desperate enough to do whatever it takes to get what you came for?
You can begin to experience miraculous healing right now, right where you are! All you have to do is receive by faith the spoken word of healing, deliverance, and life as if it were spoken over you and intended for you.
