"And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague" (Mark 5:30,34).

What was it that made this woman whole? The Bible says Jesus sensed "virtue," or power, go out of Him at the same time that she felt in her body that she was healed of the issue of blood (vv. 29-30). But then Jesus said, "Daughter, your faith made you whole." So which was it? Did Jesus' power heal her, or was it her faith?

It was a combination of the two. If He'd said, "Daughter, My power has healed you," everyone in the crowd could have asked, "Why did Your power heal her and not me? I need a miracle too."

Jesus answered that question before it was asked. He said, "Daughter, your faith made you whole." Then everyone knew why she'd gotten healed and they hadn't.

Jesus' healing power would have gone into anyone in that crowd who had come in faith. But no faith was involved when the others touched Jesus. Therefore, God's power wasn't released on their behalf, and the woman was the only one healed.

Even today we need a combination of faith and power. God's power performs the miracle, but our faith releases His power to work in our lives.

Jesus was anointed with the Holy Ghost and with power (Acts 10:38). By His power, Jesus healed the woman with the issue of blood 2000 years ago, and His power is still the same today.

He will heal us of any sickness, disease or infirmity the enemy tries to throw our way. God's power is always available to us as His children. It's just a matter of learning how to tap into that divine source of power by faith!

The woman with the issue of blood released God's power with
her faith. By faith I release that same power into my life.
God's power works in me and makes me whole!
