Luke 8:43-48 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
It is not every action that will produce the right result; to get the results that we want we must practice taking inspired action. The woman with the issue of blood took action for 12 years pursuing physicians and had nothing to show for it. In fact, she was in a worse position as she had spent all that she had without her circumstances changing. It was an inspired action that turned things around. By putting her faith in Jesus, she got a revelation that if she touched the hem of Jesus’ garment she would be made whole. What 12 years of effort could not accomplish, materialized in one day because she took action that was inspired by the Holy Spirit.
The experience of the woman with the issue of blood is not unique. Close observation will show that how she got her results was the same way that the greats got the results that they had. It was God inspired action that caused the Red Sea to be parted and the walls of Jericho to come tumbling down. What does that tell us? It says that we too can produce similar results, if we choose to take inspired action. To get there, there were two things that the woman with the issue of blood had to do. First, she put her faith in Jesus. Unlike before when her belief was that physicians are who would change her situation, her belief was then that Jesus would do it. It was thereafter that she got direction as to what to do.
Second, she never neglected to do what she was inspired to do. She could have made a million and one reasons why she could not leave her house to go and touch the hem of Jesus’ garment, but she did it nonetheless. Revelation of the inspired action may make you uncomfortable, but do it nonetheless. If you neglect to take inspired action you will not be able to get the results that you want.
Life Application: Get a revelation of the inspired action needed for your situation by putting your faith in Jesus and then following through with what you are inspired to do by the Holy Spirit.
Prayer: Lord, May you reveal to me the action I should take in any given situation. And May I move swiftly to do what you have inspired me to do. In Jesus’ name, amen.
