Mark 5:27 (KJV): When she heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment (touched the hem of His garment; Matthew 9:20).
Mark 5:29 (KJV): And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of the plague (infirmity/affliction).

"Pressing Your Way, and Touching Him, Leads to Your Instant Desired Blessing"
While traveling the uncharted road called your life, there are times when your desired needs will lead you to a new experience that will change your entire existence. Your immediate needs will supersede the time of your travels in search of your desires.
This text speaks so loudly of pains, sickness, and sorrows. It resounds with grief from infirmities and afflictions of soul and spirit, mind and body. This text leads us on a journey of one woman’s plight which could be anyone’s at any time in any place. It is steeping with the steam of emotional trauma, as we walk with her from her beginning to her expected end.
She has suffered for many years, and because of her malady, she is separated from society, family, friends, and now her physicians and to make matters even worse her, finances are depleted, because of her desired needs. There is no one and nothing that can help her at this moment. The normal attitude at this point is one of complete defeat... which would seem like the remedy for this whole matter, would simply be to call it quits.
Out of the ashes of her seemingly defeat, the storm of determination rises like the rivers of flood waters into a dessert of dryness which has had no relief for 12 long years. The text states emphatically that she heard of Jesus, the healer and presses her way into His presence from behind through the multitude of the following crowd, and touched the hem, of His flowing garment; and to her surprise her release came, her healing came, her deliverance came, her heart’s desire is fulfilled in an instant. Her conversation with herself in faith convinced her, that if I just touch the hem of the garment that He is wearing, I will be ok. Her faith established a victory of the instant powerful manifestation of her heart’s desire.
The touch of this woman was so great that the healer himself, Jesus the Christ, spoke from His flowing virtue (the transforming power of the blood) as it was infused into this woman’s issues, and His issue is now the lifesaving issue (the much needed cleansing blood) of her life source. She was the recipient of the transferal of every need that she had presently and eternally, for at this point she is called daughter instant family connection, and told to go in peace, because her faith, conquered her problems, desires and needs. Her testimony would sound something like this: in my" pressing I found my blessing." In my Pressing I found my Blessing" in my touching I found my blessing of relief. Praise God from Whom All Blessing Flow.
Where are you today in light of this text? If you are facing any matters that you possibly can relate to as you follow this woman with no name, (place your name here) use her as your ladder to climb up and out of your difficulties (whatever they may be). Press your way and receive your blessing. There is a blessing in a pressing, and a pressing for a blessing. Hear (Jesus) and Touch (Jesus) and (Receive) your needed desires.
