"And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole." Matthew 9:20,21
The lady with the issue of blood needed a healing. She pressed through the crowd and touched the "hem" of Jesus' garment. The hem was the tassels that hung on the corners of His garment. They were called "wings". Malachi prophesied that He would rise with healing in His wings. She aimed for those "wings" because she needed a healing. When she touched it, His healing virtue flowed into her body and she was healed.
What do you need today? Then take aim and touch Him. She touched His garment and healing virtue met her need. Do you need strength, perseverance, direction? Take aim for His feet. They will give you virtue to walk throughout this world without getting weary, and you will know how you should walk among a wicked and perverse society. Do you need provision? Aim for His hands. He carries what you need in the palm of His hand and supplies it according to His riches. Do you need wisdom? Take aim for His head. "Let this mind be in you"-- His mind. Do you need compassion, love, kindness, mercy, gentleness? Then take aim for His heart. John leaned upon the chest of Jesus and heard His heartbeat. Lean upon His heart and you will hear it too-- it spells out love with each beat. Do you need spiritual understanding and discernment? Aim for His eyes. They don't see as we see-- man looks upon the outward appearance, God looks at the heart.
Again, what do you need today? Jesus is your answer. Take aim and touch Him in the area that you have a need in. We often say that we shouldn't seek His hand but seek His heart, and that is true, and as we do, all the things that we need will be added to us as we seek Him first. In Him is our whole provision and there are times when we have to seek Him for that particular need and touch Him in that area, like the woman with the issue of blood did, she touched His hem for her healing.
Have a great day. Take aim at Jesus and touch Him in the area of your need.
