Some time ago, Jesus was headed on His way to heal a synagogue ruler’s daughter. As He was walking, crowds followed Him. The Bible says in Luke 8:42 (AMPC), “…As [Jesus] went, the people pressed together around Him [almost suffocating Him].” While people were pressing into Him, there was a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years. This woman pressed in with the crowds. The only difference between her and the crowd is that she took something from Him. Jesus being aware of it, wondered who touched Him and said, “…Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.” (Luke 8:46 NLT) What she took from Jesus was healing power and it caused her to be healed immediately.

Like this woman, this is your moment to take what you need and desire from Jesus. Jesus once said, And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” (Matthew 11:12) The woman with the issue of blood became violent. She didn’t let the crowd intimidate her. She wasn’t hesitant. She initiated her own transformation by pressing into the crowd and touched Jesus to get the thing she needed most. You too can transform your life by being aggressive to take what Jesus has for you.

I want to encourage you not to accept things the way they are. Jesus is “a very present help” ready to assist you with your needs and desires. I want to let you know that it’s not too late. The woman with the issue of blood suffered for twelve years and never gave up. All she needed was an encounter with the power of Christ and her life changed. It’s time for your encounter. The time is now. I see your life changing as you press to take what you need. I’m believing God’s best for you and looking forward to hearing your amazing testimonies.
